Invisible Children releases sequel to #Kony2012New video 'Beyond Famous' addresses criticism.
On April 5, Invisible Children released “Beyond Famous,” a 20-minute follow-up documentary to its first “Kony 2012” video. Since the release of “Kony 2012” on March 5, more than 100 million people have viewed it online, making it the fastest viral video in history.
Despite a backlash for what many labeled an overly simplistic portrayal of the conflict in Central Africa, Invisible Children continues to push for the arrest of Lord’s Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony.
The new video also takes on several of the criticisms that Invisible Children received over the past month. “Beyond Famous” has received more than 900,000 YouTube views two days after its release. “Kony 2012” garnered 7 million views during its first two days.
