The video, called “Kony 2012,” has exploded in popularity since its release on Monday, racking up about 37 million views on YouTube and about 12 million views on Vimeo as of Thursday afternoon.

It’s been tweeted and retweeted millions of times, and received congratulations from the White House. But it also generated a backlash against the San Diego-based group and criticisms that the video is oversimplified, promotes military intervention and is self-serving.
