See what your favorite celebs have been saying about the rapidly growing ‘Stop Kony’ movement.

If this is the first time you’re reading the name Joseph Kony, you probably haven’t spent too much time on Twitter in the past 24 hours. Oprah, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and virtually every other celebrity on the planet has been tweeting about the Ugandan terrorist, who is now the subject of a 27-minute film produced by Invisible Children Inc. Directed by Jason Russell, the viral sensation is actually a campaign to “raise support for [Joseph Kony’s] arrest and set a precedent for international justice.”

Here’s what celebrities are saying about ‘Kony 2012,’ and the ‘Stop Kony’ movement in general:

Nina Dobrev: “I’m going to ask EVERY PERSON WHO FOLLOWS ME to Please watch this video. Its incredibly important, I know that every one of you will be effected by its message. I wont even have to ask you to RT because I know you will. #stopkony and save the children. I’ve got close to 1.9 Million followers, if you all watch this and help in the smallest way it will make the BIGGEST LIFE SAVING DIFFERENCE.”

Ian Somerhalder: “thank you @ninadobrev! I Just watched this. IF there is 1 thing you do today: PLS WATCH THIS & RT – it just changed my world.”

Rihanna: “#KONY2012 Spread the word!!! PLEASE go to Invisiblechildren.com Even if its 10 minutes… Trust me, you NEED to know about this! #1LOVE”

Kony2012 is just a big scam and they use old tragic stories of child abductions to pull at heart strings in hopes it will open purse strings. It’s the worst kind of scam and Russell knows people are educating themselves about the fact Kony is not even in Uguanda. He is under great stress because he knows people are getting wise to the scam and getting mad. Ever heard of Karma Russel…..it’s gonna get much uglier for you!!!!
