Kony Creator Jason Russell`s Status Is In [Pic+]

Thank you to those who continue to support both us, and Invisible Children. Theorganizationis an extension of our family, and we hope that Jasons vision and work toward peace in the region remains the focus, and comes as soon as possible, as they continue to work in his absence.

We would, again, like to make it clear that Jasons incident was in no way the result ofdrugs or alcohol. The preliminary diagnosis he received iscalled brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by the extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration.Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks.Even for us, its hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention -both ravesand ridicules, in a matter of days.

Jason will get better. He has a long way to go, but we are confident that he will make a full recovery. He is, and will remain, under hospital care for a number of weeks; and after that,the recoveryprocess could take monthsbefore he is fully able to step back into his role with Invisible Children. During that time, we will focus not on a speedy recovery, but a thorough one.

On Jasons behalf,keep your attention turned to the end of Africaslongest running conflict, and setting a precedent for all future injustice.

With love and overflow of gratitude for your prayers, we thank you.

Jasons wife,Danica Russell, on behalf of the entire family.

And the verdict is… “brief reactive psychosis.” Oh, is that what their calling it? Full statement from his wife inside

    As it turns out, he`s a fundamentalist Christian according to the Wikipedia page. That explains everything to me. His repressed homosexuality is probably one of the stressors that led to BRP.

    Seriously, this is bullsh*t. Own up to the fact that your husband is a normal human being, and that as a normal human being he has a libido and some sexual fetishes. We all like to pretend we don`t, so when someone else slips up and gets caught doing sh*t like this, we act all horrified and surprised.

    It`s not an illness. Even if alcohol or drugs were involved, who cares? Dude got horny and jerked it. That`s all.

    you may be on of the stupidest people on IAB and that is saying a great deal.

    normal people do not act like this or go out into public naked and so things like this.

    clearly there is some type of psychosis at work here, whether it is temporary or not the fact remains that this guy had a break.

    Did you even watch the video? There was nothing sexual or fetishistic about it. "Normal" human beings don`t do what he did. There has to be something that is wrong with their head.

    Mcbooze, probably because some of us don`t agree with his tactics or message. He tries to come off as holier than thou while spreading misinformation on what`s really going on, profiting from exploiting these people, and the donations going to the Ugandan Army which is led by a man who`s worse than KONY. I`d say the real losers are the ones who don`t do their research.

    After this disturbing and emberassing scenario has played out, the poor man will have only one recourse left to him . . . gay porn. While he may walk a bit femmi, he had a nice enough body he could make a living from it.

    So, here`s hoping he`s feeling better soon and up an on his back in no time.

    Why doesn`t he just Cowboy Up and admit that he went on a bender that got out of control? He probably should have had second thoughts about what he was doing around about the time he was doing up bumps of blow off some hookers ass!

    Nice comeback, xCYBERDYNEx, I stand corrected. You are so right!

    I suddenly understand why we would want to bash a man who either had a psychotic episode or did something horribly stupid during a drug/alcohol-related situation.

    Yeah, f*ck his good cause. F*ck the work he did, because he took his willy out in public and that makes us Americans go weepy and angry! Pfft, moralfags...
