KONY 2012 Jason Russell likely to undergo months of therapy or hospitalizations for his breakdown

This tale just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

by Anonymousreply 5710/08/2012

The new term for overpressure inside the closet is...

"brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by the extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration," the statement reads. "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."

...causing public nudity and masturbation while singing showtunes in the streets of San Diego.

Why doesn't he just come out of the closet?

by Anonymousreply 203/22/2012

So in addition to covering his hair stylist and his drug dealer, are the people who donate money to Invisible Children also paying for his hospitalization?

by Anonymousreply 303/22/2012

poor link, OP, here - I'll try...

by Anonymousreply 403/22/2012

Is he blond or brunette?

by Anonymousreply 503/22/2012

Probably R3.

This whole thing is seeming like more and more of a scam everyday. Too much isn't adding up. I think he realized everything was going to get uncovered and either lost it or went into hiding after his little naked freakout.

by Anonymousreply 603/22/2012

I'm sure they're going to put him in a "Christian" facility that specializes in "de-gaying" people.

by Anonymousreply 703/22/2012

Didn't they hook-up self-loathers up to electrodes in ex-gay reparative therapy? That'll probably happen to him. Hopefully TMZ is there to film them try and zap the gay right out of him.

That's what they do. There's also "counseling" meant to shame and pressure the person.

It does not take months to recover from a breakdown like that. Something else is going on with that man.

by Anonymousreply 1003/22/2012

One of my clients developed psychosis due to prolongued lack of sleep, and it took many months for him to regain some of his earlier functioning.

by Anonymousreply 1103/22/2012

The whole KONY thing was part of his psychosis. People weren't paying attention.

by Anonymousreply 1203/22/2012

R11 did he run around the streets naked in broad daylight masturbating and vandalizing cars?

Having a breakdown is one thing, sleep induced psychosis, whatever.

What this guy did was go on one hell of a public bender and they're trying to explain it away in a sympathetic way without costing his charity any donation money from his actions.

by Anonymousreply 1303/22/2012

He wasn't prepared to play in the professional liga. For trained people from the media it takes years to have such a meltdown (which they of course have, too but most manage to not have it in public).

by Anonymousreply 1403/22/2012

I've never seen teeth so white on someone like him who supports causes like he does.

I guess his going crazy and being thrown in the hospital worked out well for him then.

by Anonymousreply 1503/22/2012

Well no, he is in a wheelchair. His was devastating, but much more self-contained and expressed in very different ways than those examples you gave, r13.

I'm not saying that this is what the Russell man has, just that it had such a far reaching and long lasting one on a man I support.

How come only famous people get dehydrated? My plumber never calls in sick saying I can't make it today because I'm dehydrated.

by Anonymousreply 1703/22/2012

African Charities are sooo 2006 anyway.

by Anonymousreply 1803/22/2012

R17 cause the dehydration if so is caused by too much drug and alcohol abuse. It's the secondary symptom to a much bigger problem.

by Anonymousreply 1903/22/2012

My thought is he's not going to get therapy for the actual breakdown or for whatever (ahem, the closet, drugs) caused this breakdown. He is going to get therapy for the realization that he had such a breakdown. Seriously, that is the worst part.

Imagine coming off of some drug and finding out that you had done this. Dear God, I would want to kill myself.

by Anonymousreply 2003/22/2012

Very suspicious. ' Weeks in the hospital' ? Whats going on here ? Smell major Christian closet case. And those moves, on the sidewalk helped confirm it. No straight guy walks with a sway like that, and no straight guy does the 'mary' circle snap (at very end of close up video). Hmmmmm.

by Anonymousreply 2103/22/2012

Is this a euphemism for "Bible-based reparative therapy"?

by Anonymousreply 2203/22/2012

Actually they do R21. He is not up on how gays behave, that is just his Christian closet case interpretation of how gays behave.

by Anonymousreply 2303/22/2012

r23, the only straight men in history who have ever done the "mary circle snap" are Damon Wayans and David Allen Grier.

Oprah is interviewing him on Sunday on OWN. He's gonna try to explain away the gay I guess.

Hope he has been able to keep working out while in treatment. He had an impressive rock hard little bod during the nude meltdown.

by Anonymousreply 2710/04/2012

Dehydration AND exhaustion, R26.

This guy is just trolling, and he stole so much money in the process. EPIC WIN!!!

by Anonymousreply 3010/04/2012

Isn't how funny how these convenient episodes that inflame the middle east- KONY, the Muhammad video, etc.- always have a flaky idiot at the center.

Someone who thought our government was trying to create propaganda might think that covert operatives might be behind it.

by Anonymousreply 3110/04/2012

He is totally MK Ultra. Gay division.

by Anonymousreply 3210/05/2012

So still no uncensored pix of his ding dong?

by Anonymousreply 3310/05/2012

Here's his dick.

I think he's a woman.

by Anonymousreply 3410/05/2012

I guess The Company (aka The CIA) has decided to troll Datalounge.

This guy, like the recent 9/11 "Mohammed is a homo pederast" movie guy, is just a stooge.

Anyone care to trace him?

by Anonymousreply 3610/06/2012

He actually never denied being gay in the interview even though Oprah asked him about it. All he said was that he could see where someone would think that because he is "theatrical." okay, whatever Mary!

by Anonymousreply 3710/08/2012

Said no drugs at all involved. Basically the internet drove him insane. That's been going around lately.

by Anonymousreply 3810/08/2012

Anyone noteworthy besides the really not noteworthy Leann Rimes?

by Anonymousreply 3910/08/2012

I saw the Oprah interview over on OWN with him.

Oprah asked him if he was on drugs, if he was masturbating, and scads of things. She went there with her questions but this fellow never really did.

He really just somehow seems to be disconnected. He said that the whole publicity behind his fame drove him bat shit and that he felt as though he was experiencing an out of body experience of some sort. He also said that he was having racing thoughts.

But he was also asked point blank if he was gay. He said that he grew up in a theatrical family because his parents founded a children's theatrical troop and so he was therefore theatrical as a result. He never said no, just that he was theatrical. Weird.

What happened to all the $$$?

by Anonymousreply 4110/08/2012

He has no penis. Which is fine, because I'm a top...and I'd like to hit that.

Someone actually watches OWN???

Oprah apparently asked him if he was gay.

Tell me this man isn't gay.

Bless his theatrical heart.

by Anonymousreply 4810/08/2012

Surely his breakdown wasn't from the pressure of becoming a patsy for TPTB trying to foment war between the US/EU and the Moooslims.

Did Oprah ask him if he ever had backing from shady people with lots of money and connections?

by Anonymousreply 4910/08/2012

Poor little poofta. Come into the light my friend!

He is a pretty little thing though, isn't he?

Can someone briefly explain what this whole KONY thing is. Are we with it or against it? What's all this Africa stuff? I'm lost!

Mmm freshly baked cookies.

I did this on acid in the 70s. I was having a bad acid trip and my friends left me off at my mother's house. I took my pants off in the middle of the walk and just stood there. Why do people get naked when they're having psychotic breaks?

by Anonymousreply 5410/08/2012

Maybe this is the west coast version of bath salt intoxication.

He talked a lot about wanting an Oscar in that interview....well that ain't gay at all!

I like this one. Especially around 1:51.
