Rodman apologizes for North Korea outburst

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman apologized Thursday for his outburst against detained American Kenneth Bae during his controversial visit to North Korea.

The eccentric basketball player is visiting Pyongyang to celebrate the birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, a man he calls a friend and a "very good guy."

In an exclusive interview Tuesday with Chris Cuomo of CNN's "New Day," Rodman suggested that Bae deserved his 15-year sentence.

    That man is a traitor and he needs to stay in north korean. He and the lil chubby one can call themselves "mutt and jeff" and become korean versions of comics because everything in that country is bassakwards therefore comics there dont need to be funny!

    The most worthless POS EVER! He insults the human race, America and the black community! To bad his friend, the "supreme chubby one" didn't feed him to the dogs!

    Was Bae a CIA operative or a missionary? Either way, he should not have been there.

    as long as the neanderthals don't screw the pooch
    the only asset the US has in North Korea is Dennis Rodman.
    but... then again the dumb dumbs misunderstand all that they see
    which is to the USA's advantage.

    Why should we even try. CNN allows 4 or 5 regulars to post nonsense on here then deletes everyone else's comments, regardless if they are valid or on topic. Bye CNN.

      It looked like Charles Smith wanted to talk more than he was allowed.

    Rodman has no friends except the chubby one and that aint no friend. If he will kill members of his own family he would do the same to rodman. And wth do we need any assets there anyway. Emphasis on the the 1st 3 letters of assets!
