Dennis Rodman continued his odd relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un this week by singing him a heartfelt rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ before an exhibition basketball game between American players and a North Korean team.
The drama surrounding Rodman’s bizarre relationship with the Kim Jong Un has continued to turn heads. Lately, Rodman was entangled in a situation with the family of Kenneth Bae, an American who was being held in North Korea. While Rodman has preached his intent is a step towards a peaceful reconciliation with North Korea he’s done anything, but make peace. Instead, he’s turned his ill-conceived game with Un into a dangerous farce.
There’s no doubt that celebrities have the power to impact this world in a positive manner, but Rodman is hardly a celebrity and he’s terribly mistaken in efforts.
