Maker of Kony 2012 Video Has Naked Meltdown

Maker of Kony 2012 Video Has Naked Meltdown March 19, 2012

Nobody wakes up in the morning and says, “What should I do today? What about getting completely naked and take a walk in broad daylight?”

So, I’m not sure what caused this, but the maker of the viral sensation of the Kony 2012 video (which Steve Haas wrote about last week) apparently had some sort of meltdown. According to eye witnesses (and a few unfortunate camera phone videos), Jason Russell was:

“spewing out f-bombs and screaming about the iPhone, its digital assistant, Siri, and the devil… pacing madly, cursing and pounding the sidewalk with both hands.”

His wife said the outburst was caused by dehydration and no drugs were involved.

Whatever the cause, how do you process stories like this? Are you devastated by the news and begin to rethink the person’s mission? Have you already lived too long to expect people to be any better? Are you disappointed? Compassionate? Simply glad it wasn’t you?

I think the way we answer this question says a lot about our opinion of ourselves and of God.
