Dennis Rodman is a name we all somehow still remember, despite his contributions to basketball, film, and international politics all ranging from forgettable to… well… unforgivable. The man who once played alongside Michael Jordan while making public appearances in a wedding dress would eventually go on to star in terrible movies alongside Jean Claude Van Dam, before ultimately grasping for the last bit of headline-worthy stardom he could reach, and serving alongside a dictator as the tallest cog in the North Korean propaganda machine.
We’ve been blessed by a reprieve of Rodman’s antics in recent years, but all good things must come to an end, and he now believes that another trip to the reclusive North Korean state is in order amid serious tensions surrounding his friend, Kim Jong Un, and the dictator’s relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons.
You may think calling the cruel dictator, Kim Jong Un, Rodman’s “friend” is a form of editorializing, but it’s actually how Rodman himself refers to him. Rodman is also quick to point out that Kim is a “very good guy.”
