Do you remember the KONY 2012 video that went viral earlier this year? It was a campaign to end the terror of African warlord Joseph Kony. The efforts of the filmakers were undermined after the very public breakdown of the face of their campaign, Jason Russell.
Now after many months, the campaign has come out with a new video, released just last night (see above). In it, the filmakers explain that the effort to stop KONY is still ongoing. They also attempt to explain the emotional breakdown of Jason Russell. In the video, Russell apologizes and says that he is fully recovered.
Russell will be interviewed on “The Today Show” on Monday morning (see video below). He also sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday. Excerpts from the interview are posted below, including Russell’s description of what happened to him the day of his breakdown.
