Toure: 'Kony' video promotes social media ‘slacktivism’

copied!

Toure takes his turn at the "Daily Rant," keying in on the “Kony” video that has gone viral in depicting the violent Ugandan rebel, Joseph Kony. And while the film’s director Jason Russell has aptly spread the word on Kony’s human rights violations, Toure takes issue with Russell’s “emotional manipulation” with the film that allows social media consumers to feel they are taking part in changing the world through “slacktivism.”Mar.10.2012
