Oh, you just had to know this was coming. Guy makes a huge name for himself, is treated like a hero for exposing Joseph Kony, and then starts to masturbate on the corner of a street! That sounds like a very normal thing, doesn’t it? No? Well, it happened. (see TMZ’s video above.)

Jason Russell, the man behind the “Kony 2012” video was detained for allegedly being drunk in public and masturbating. He is currently being hospitalized on a 5150 psychiatric hold so authorities can assure his mental state. The 5150 allows law enforcement to keep him for up to 3 days to determine if he represents a threat to himself or others. Law enforcement has no plans to charge him with a crime for yesterday’s meltdown.

A statement has been released by the CEO of Invisible Children, Ben Keesey,

“Jason 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.

Jason’s 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. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.”

Geez, what an incredibly odd turn of events. We all suffer from stress, but you don’t see us going down to the local ihop and spreading maple syrup all over our naked bodies. Get a grip, man!
