Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad actor won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Monday night, and also managed to crash the website of a non-profit organization called Kind Campaign. Co-founded by Paul’s wife, Lauren Parsekian, who is also president of Kind Campaign, the organization works against girl-on-girl bullying.
“My wife–my God, thank you for marrying me, thank you for dedicating your life to spread kindness around the world,” said Paul during his acceptance speech, according to Moviefone. “We all appreciate it. If you guys don’t know what she does, look up Kind Campaign. Do yourself and your children a favor–Kind Campaign. ”
The entreaty before a live audience of millions had the unintended impact of crashing the Kind Campaign website. As of Tuesday morning, the site was still down, with the message “Internal Server Error: The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.”
The Kind Campaign Facebook page, however, is still up and running. The organization states on its Facebook page that the Kind Campaign is “an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in Kindness, which brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of abuse within the ‘Girl World.'”
A Youtube video of Parsekian reveals more about the co-founders personal experiences with girl-on-girl bullying:
Parsekian was honored in May for her anti-bullying work with the Kind Campaign at the Open Hearts Foundation annual gala. At the gala, held at Jane Seymour’s Malibu home, Paul also went on record praising his wife’s work after she got an award for her work with the Kind Campaign, according to the Indy Channel.
“I couldn’t be more proud of her,” said Paul at the time. “I feel so blessed to be able to share this evening with her – let’s be honest, I feel blessed to share any evening with her. I always sit back and applaud her on a day-to-day basis. It’s nice to see everyone else applaud her tonight.”
Paul and Parsekian have been married for about a year-and-a-half. The Kind Campaign was founded in 2009 and was co-founded with Molly Thompson.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, the Kind Campaign allows girls and women of all ages to participate with the organization’s interactive features, including a documentary and the online publication Kind Magazine.
The Kind Campaign Twitter account, @Kindcampaign, did not crash after Paul’s speech on Monday night.
