Oprah Asks KONY 2012′s Jason Russell About Gay Rumors
KONY 2012 activist Jason Russell was caught on camera during a nude rant at a San Diego intersection. The footage shows him snapping his fingers like a diva, so when he appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show to talk about the incident she asked him if he’s gay.
“Yeah, I’ve heard those rumors,” Russell told Oprah on Oct. 7.
“In the video I was snapping my finger up and down. I grew up in theater. My parents started a large children’s theater organization, so I am animated. I am theatrical. That’s me by nature. So when you take me, times it by ten, I don’t know what was in my head but it was controlling my body and making me do really strange things.”
The 33-year-old filmmaker is married and has two children. According to Gay Star News, no charges were filed against Russell.
The incident happened back in March. Russell said it was the result of stress and dehydration following his KONY 2012 film and campaign about Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.
