Bree Olsen, Former Porn Star, Gets Nearly Naked For 'Kony 2012'

Despite video-maker Jason Russell's nude melt-down last week, the "Kony 2012" juggernaut shows few signs of stopping. Russell is said to have gone raving nude in the streets as a result of a critical backlash that argued his viral video is a fundraising tool for his Christian organization.

Well, now there's a backlash to that backlash. A sexy, near-nude one at that.

Reformed ex-porn star Bree Olsen has something to say, and it's not pretty. (Well, actually, it is):

Olsen poses in a bikini and gets mud all over her body in the name of supporting Russell's "Kony 2012" campaign.

Acknowledging the backlash, the alleged, onetime Charlie Sheen love interest, says:

... If you're against learning more about the world around you, even if that education comes from a video made by a charity that's flashier than most, you're missing the point.

Olsen says she interspersed near-nude photos of herself with images of Kony and the children he used as soldiers ...

... because I know a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Well, you're partly right, Bree.

Money helps the world go around. It rhymes with your take on things.

And while you're correct that Russell and his Invisible Children charity helped a lot of folks wake up to Kony, what you're missing is critics' point that it was merely a fundraising mission for a group of white folks in San Diego.

As critics have pointed out, the former Ugandan military leader is already out of his country and in the cross-hairs of the Obama administration. If you recall what happened to Osama Bin Laden, then you know you can't really do much more than wait for someone to pull the trigger (or try to make money off it, right?).

But, of course, Bree, capitalizing on a news story is nothing foreign to you, either.

We're happy, though, that you nearly got naked for "Kony 2012." At least you didn't go running through the streets and attract the attention of the police.
