Dennis Rodman Buddies Up With North Korea’s Kim Jong Un [POLL]
The infamous bad boy of the NBA, Dennis Rodman, is back in the news. And is Kim Jon Un his BFF now?
There is no doubt he has a mouth, a temper and then add some booze and you get Dennis Rodman. Rodman is currently in North Korea organizing a basketball game with former NBA players citing that he is only trying to improve relations with North Korea and Washington. While being interviewed about why he was not using his influence with Kim Jong Un to get an American missionary being held against his will released Rodman replied,
Kenneth Bae did one thing. If you understand what Kenneth Bae did — do you understand what he did in this country? – Dennis Rodman
Kenneth Bae for the record is a Korean-American Christina Missionary who has been detained for more than a year. North Korea sees missionary work as a threat to its authoritarian government and Rodman originally implied that Bae himself was at fault.
I want to apologize. I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates. My dreams of basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It’s not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed. It’s not an excuse, it’s just the truth – Dennis Rodman from North Korea on Thursday
Now all hell has broke loose once again for Dennis Rodman and many want his passport revoked and left in North Korea. What do you think? Is his apology sincere and why is he buddy buddy with Kim Jong Un anyway?
