Dennis Rodman is reportedly apologizing for comments he made in an interview about an American missionary held captive in North Korea for more than a year.
The former NBA star, who has cozied up to North Koreas young dictator, made the apology through an email sent by publicist Jules Feiler, The Associated Press reported.
"I want to apologize," Rodman said in the email to AP. "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."

He is legitimizing a terror state, he should be made to feel real shame
Being drunk and appearing before the international media shows how reckless this guy is. But I guess we knew that already.
the guy is a clown freak . I have to convince myself that he is actually a human being . It must be so strange to be the zoo pet of Kim Jong Un
Let’s not be too hard on the freak show. Maybe he should spend some quiet time with those nice little North Korean doggies? I hear they like people!
Who cares about this freak!
He is the court jester
North Koreans and Chinese investors watch as the NK basketball team defeat the American team.
He is probably saying something like "Did you see that freak show move? He was faster hitting on the servants at dinner last night"
Except that there’s evidence that the Jester’s job was to mock the court. Rodman’s pretty much doing everything *but* mocking his host.
After some of the other appointments Mr. Obama has made, it would not surprise me if Mr. Rodman is our first ambassador to the DPRK (”North Korea”) in the near future.
Anyone that would associate with this guy after this is a moron and that goes double for his ‘publicist’ Jules Feiler.
There’s certain stuff you just don’t do and I hope Ratfink-Rodman finds this out the hard way.... The very hardest way possible.
Probably will get the presidential medal of freedom from O when he returns.
I had forgotten just how quantum-leap kind of freaky this guy can be when he’s allowed to do things his way. The other team members are just as big of fools and traitors as Rodman. No compassion for the captive American at all. Next year, expect to see him playing basketball for Mugabe’s Troops, maybe cracking jokes about those crazy Kenyans, seeing how we have our own Crazy Kenyan in the White House until eviction.
I though Rodman & his fifteen minutes of fame was over.
I though Rodman & his fifteen minutes of fame was over.
He’s in way over his head.
Rodman’s 15 minutes were over when he left the Bulls back in 1998.
To my Free Republic Bruthas——
Its all about getting paid!!!
This super freak Rodman isn’t in North Korea for nothing nor are are the NBA washouts he took along with him. They are being paid a few hundred thousand (or what have you) by the Nork regime... Kim il Un or whatever his name is
Bet he’s got a tattoo right above his butt dedicated to Kim Jum Un that says “enter here for the ride of your life”
He or IT must be rife with disease.
If Dennis let’s the public see him like this, then just allow yourself for five seconds to privately imagine the things even HE wont allow us to view. I doubt if the craziness stops completely after the pictures are snapped. It does boggle the mind, now doesn’t it?
What must his son’s think, though I suppose they’re used to Wacked-Out Daddy-O by now. There is no one he seems to listen to, except maybe his supplier of Johnny Walker Red, and Black. Jane Fonda, meet your Gaudy Black Son!
Correction: He was over with Detroit in ‘93
He’s a drugged-up, self-mutilating Super Freak as stupid as they come.
Deputy Secretary of State Dennis Rodman is John Kerry’s greatest asset.
Rodman collected three championship rings with the Bulls (1996, 1997, 1998). Then it was over.
He was over mentally man, mentally. He fried his brain in Detroit.
“It had been a very stressful day [said Rodman]”
I’m thinking Kenneth Bae’s day was worse, you jackwagon.
Burn in hell rodman... you are no longer an American in the eyes of real Americans. You need to be stripped of citizenship and banned from our soil.
Did anyone else see the pistachio commercial? t featured Rodman in green hair and then it pans out to show someone hitting a big red button. Rodman blows up and then we see a likeness of Kim laughing as a cracked nut drops on the chair where the explosion was.
I was laughing more at the cracked nut than I was about him being blown up by Kim.
all the ads have been taken off you tube, anybody got a link to the pistachio commercial
“I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae’s family. I want to apologize to my
teammates and my management team. I also want to apologize to Chris Cuomo. I
embarrassed a lot of people. I’m very sorry. At this point I should know
better than to make political statements. I’m truly sorry.”
If he is in NK, he better play the game.
Ric Flair’s comments about NK were spot-on when he did a match there long ago. He was worried he’d be staying forever if he said the wrong thing.
I’m sure the Korean team was under win or die orders and the has-been US team probably took it easy on them.
Bad news, Dennis. When you’re rested and sober, you’re still an idiot.
