Rate this Entry
If you haven't seen or at least heard of Kony 2012, the Kony 2012 video and the Stop Kony movement, then you must not have been online over the last week. The video was made and is backed by a charity which became controversial post publishing it. The goal of the video was to "make Joseph Kony famous" and without a doubt, at over 100 million views, that goal was achieved despite of or because of the controversy surrounding the skepticism and criticism of Invisible Children.
