Dennis Rodman Apologizes: I Was Drunk

“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. I had been drinking. It’s not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed.” – Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, apologizing for his bizarre rant on CNN earlier this week. Rodman says his dream of “basketball diplomacy” with North Korea is falling apart.
