Dennis Rodman Apologizes for CNN Rant, Admits He Was Super Drunk
Now we just need an apology for his rendition of “Happy Birthday” and we’re set.
In a statement released via his publicist, Rodman admitted he was drunk at the time and apologized for his behavior, which included nonsensical gibberish and basically blaming American Kenneth Bae for his wrongful imprisonment in North Korea.
I want to apologize. 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.
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.
Two words people: basketball diplomacy.
