Jason Russell's family released a statement saying he's been diagnosed with brief reactive psychosis and continues to require hospitalization.

Regardless of criticisms about the goals and tactics of his NGO, I feel really bad for the guy--it's no one's fault he had an embarrassingly public psychotic episode, but it sure is someone's fault that some asshole filmed it then gave it to the media so we can all once again prove what kind of voyeuristic hypocrites we are.

yeah i have my reservations about this NGO, but i feel really sorry for the guy and his family... they clearly weren't expecting any of this to go viral... his video was way too personal and focused on him and his family, which i guess made him incredibly vulnerable... people can be so nasty, it's scary! who needs "Big Brother" spying on our every move when we have each other? what a horrible society we live in...

They've been trying desperately to make their videos go viral for some time. Every one of their videos is designed that way

I wonder what has a greater affect on one's mental health: Public scrutiny over an ill advised viral video or having to suppress your obvious homosexuality because of your religion?

Believe meeeeeeeeee

you can still watch them. They've been throwing shit at the wall for years and finally something stuck (and if you see any of the other videos, 'shit' is the appropriate term)

Don't you care about stopping Kony?!! Your future child will be so disappointed when you tell him/her at six years old.

Regardless of my feelings about the whole thing, I do feel bad for the guy. Even if he's a money-hungry, egotistical maniac, I wouldn't wish mental illness on anyone. Scary.

I think they're two different guys, the other guy who was naked in public and this last guy. I guess you're talking about the first guy

Oh, he's not the egotistical one who proclaimed himself to be the child of Bono, Oprah and Spielberg? I honestly didn't realize this was a different guy who freaked out.

No that is the same guy who freaked out and was on the Oprah show etc.-Jason Russell

I was just talking about the Jedidiah guy who joked about keeping the money. He's "director of ideology". He's just not the guy who freaked out.
