This time yesterday, Joseph Kony, a ruthlessly violent Ugandan warlord who turned thousands of children into soldiers and is seeking to establish a theocracy based on the Ten Commandments, was relatively unknown. Now, thanks to a social media campaign involving just about every famous person on earth, Joseph Kony is infamous. The group behind the campaign is advocating for the capture and trial of Joseph Kony, who is currently walking free despite being among the world's most wanted war criminals. If you wanna know what this whole thing is about, check out the video below that everyone is tweeting about followed by a list of our favorite musicians' tweets. My personal favorite tweet, Cee Lo's "WERE GONNA KILL YOU KONY," was unfortunately deleted.
