Statement from Invisible ChildrenJason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunate incident yesterday. Jasonís passion and his work have done so much to help so many, and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue.

Dude was just out celebrating the fact the video hit 75 million youtube hits. He's entitled to a little bit of fun.

JamieTheSonger 03/16/12 02:04 PM

It's okay to masturbate in public if you're stressed.

Being gay is a total sin. jerking off in publc? All good!

FayeQC 03/16/12 02:05 PM

Looks like Invisible Children has quite the mess on their hands.

Or Russell's hands anyway.

mitchellyoung 03/16/12 02:06 PM

i know a lot of the invisible children staff and have met jason personally several times. they're all passionate, good people. this is about as far from anything i would ever expect to be associated with the organization. it's surely a horrible pr nightmare. i'm sure a lot of supporters are going to be pissed.

Jason Russell, 33, was allegedly found masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something, according to Lt. Andra Brown. He was detained at the intersection of Ingraham Street and Riviera Road.

Brown said Russell was acting very strange.

Well, no fucking shit.

By avoiding and averting peoples attention off the fact he was drunk and beating off in public. They are probably shitting themselves because its going to be more gasoline thrown onto the fire that is KONY

anamericangod 03/16/12 02:08 PM

What a great statement.

Exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. Dude must have been going at it hard.

Nothing, they were just trying to put a "positive" spin but failed miserably!

You're supposed to take a 15 minute break for every hour of wankage. He's doing it wrong.

Fantastic.
