Jason Russell’s Wife Addresses “KONY 2012″ Filmmaker’s Naked Meltdown


Jason Russell’s wife has spoken out on the bizarre, naked behavior her “KONY 2012″ filmmaker husband displayed on the streets of San Diego on Thursday.

The Invisible Children co-founder was taken into custody after stripping off his clothes and allegedly making sexual gestures while disrupting traffic and alarming passers-by.

Footage purported to be of Russell’s nude breakdown can be seen here.

In a statement, Danica Russell calls the incident “irrational” but denies that it has anything to do with drugs or alcohol.

“Let us say up front – that Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things. But yes, he did some irrational things brought on by extreme exhaustion and dehydration,” says Danica Russell.

She continues, “We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week, millions of people around the world saw it. While that attention was great for raising awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought a lot of attention to Jason – and, because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard.”

Jason Russell is reportedly on 5150 psychiatric hold while officials determine whether he’s a danger to himself and others.
