A drunk Dennis Rodman had difficulties controlling his bodily functions during his recent controversial visit to North Korea if a report from Korean media is to be believed.
As part of the birthday celebration for his friend Kim Jong-Un, Rodman brought a team of his fellow retired NBA players to the communist dictatorship in January to stage a hoops exhibition. The trip was also notable for his contentious CNN interview in which he appeared visibly upset when asked about imprisoned American Kenneth Bae.
Attributing it to sourcing from Free North Korea Radio, a group primarily consisting of North Korean refugees and defectors, The Korea Times made this allegation about Rodman:
Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay. And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk unconscious, and vomited everywhere he turned. He even urinated and emptied the bowels in the hallway,” said the source. Workers and managers of the Koryo Hotel who witnessed the scene and had to clean the mess were reportedly at a loss for words at such barbaric and uncivilized behavior… The stench was just horrible and people are criticizing not only Rodman, but also Kim Jong-un saying that ‘No one in a right mind would be a friend with Rodman. An animal that he is,’ the source said.”
The report also claims that officials told Rodman not to come back to North Korea until he completed rehab. For what it’s worth, “The Worm” did check into alcohol rehab upon his return to the states.
The Asia Pundits website, however, labeled the Rodman hotel misbehavior story “total BS” and an example of shoddy Korean journalism. It added, “While we here at Asia Pundits are unsure on whether Rodman was swigging North Korean booze, his own illegally imported stock, or both, one thing is for certain, if the report holds true, Rodman’s latest trip ushers in a new era of diplomacy to the world, the era of poo and puke. This sounds like something straight out of Kissinger’s playbook, minus the bodily fluids of course, but hey, it’s the 2010′s and some things have to change from the old days if we are to accomplish anything, right?”
Do you think that the claim that Dennis Rodman vomited, urinated, and defecated in a North Korean hotel hallway is plausible or just total nonsense?
