OK, if you have anything to say about Dennis Rodman visiting North Korea, say it here.
Frankly, I’m amazed that North Korea still hands out entry visas to VICE.
The Worm is not the sharpest guy on the planet. While there he Tweeted: “Maybe I’ll run into the Gangnam Style dude while I’m here.” Ouch.
Hey, you never know.
I never knew Rodman was called “The Worm”. was he called that during his career in the NBA?
Well, years of massive alcohol abuse will do that. Rodman was yet another of the self-inflicted casualties who ended up doing a stint on ‘Celebrity Rehab’ (as, I believe, a means of avoiding jail time), and a lot of his abuse-related behavioral and social problems were aired there.
Psy responds to Rodman.
I don’t think abusing alcohol will make you completely ignorant about Asia. He just never bothered to learn anything about the region.
Rodman’s father Philander Rodman Jr. has lived in the Philippines for the last 50 years and purportedly has 29 children with 16 different women. Dennis met his father for the first time in 42 years last summer.
More like Philanderer.
Alcohol abuse won’t make you ignorant, per se, but its destructive nature makes many people stupid, and also inhibits their ability to develop further intellectually. Alcoholics such as Rodman with his decades of abuse are not infrequently ‘stuck on stupid’.
Every Korean in America has been asked, “are you from North or South?”. Alcoholism isn’t to blame for that.
Dennis Rodman replied to Psy:
@psy_oppa I know you are from S Korea. Just making a joke brother. Peace and love to your family. #WORMinNorthKorea
In the 30s, serious intellectuals traveled to the Soviet Union to hail it as the future of humanity. In the 60s and 70s, writers, actors & other assorted glitterati went to Cuba to be schmoozed by El Jefe. And now North Korea has hauled in…a retired basketball player with a penchant for shock publicity. The quality of useful idiots is on a definite downward trajectory.
