Eat Da Poo Poo is a series of video remixes based on a clip from CurrentTV’s Vanguard: Missionaries of Hate, a documentary that explores anti-homosexuality campaigns in Africa. In the original footage, Ugandan pastor Martin Sempa lectures his audience with an overly sensational and biased account of what he sees as homosexual fetishes in extreme details.

Hilton called the video “infuriating, truly sad, and ridiculous anti-homosexual presentation,” adding, “you sort of can’t help but laugh due to the sheer insanity of it, but it’s still so unfortunate that this kind of misrepresentation still exists in the world! EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!”
