Invisible Children Exec Jokes About Keeping $900K Donation

As if KONY 2012 filmmaker Jason Russell’s nervous breakdown wasn’t enough already, Invisible Children is dealing with yet another PR nightmare today.

TMZ has obtained a video of one of the charity’s executives joking about keeping a $900,000 donation they won in a contest.

In the clip, Director of Ideology Jedidiah Jenkins takes swigs from a handle of Smirnoff’s Vodka and he says on tape, “I don’t know if you heard this or not … but we won a … we won a million dollars so … pretty rad…a hundred thousand for Haiti and $900,000 in extra for me.”

The video was recorded shortly after the Haiti earthquake. Invisible Children had promised to give $100,000 to the country if they won the $1 million grand prize in the Chase Community Giving Facebook competition.

A source with connections to Invisible Children tells TMZ that the whole video was just a joke posted on a private YouTube page and claims the bottle of Smirnoff’s was actually filled with water.

Invisible Children has not yet made an official statement on the leaked video.
