Rodman thrown out of New York hotel bar due to Kim Jung Un talk

Mar 5, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

Retired U.S. NBA basketball player Rodman is welcomed by Son, Vice Chairman of North Korea's Olympic Committe, as he arrives in Pyongyang Reuters

In case you missed it, Dennis Rodman was in North Korea last week doing a little basketball diplomacy and meeting with one of the world’s true old-school (and I don’t mean that in a good way) dictators in Kim Jong Un.

Since his return Rodman has been doing the talk-show circuit talking about what a great and humble guy Kim Jong Un is. Even as we all roll our eyes and say “a guy who has ordered a 100,000 person military parade in his honor is not humble.”

But Rodman will not stop praising the North Korean leader to the point of driving other people crazy. Like in a New York hotel bar, reports the New York Post.

“He was at the bar at Serafina for three hours,” says a spy. “He kept saying what a nice guy Kim is, and how Kim just wants to talk to President Obama about basketball. He was waving around a signed copy of the dictator’s huge manifesto, telling everyone they should read it.”

Added the witness, “Dennis was making a total jerk of himself. He wouldn’t leave, and he wouldn’t let anyone talk to him about shutting up, or what an oppressive country North Korea is. Eventually he had to leave the bar because the bartender was starting to get [bleep]ed-off.”

The story goes on to say he was asked to leave. For the record, Rodman’s publicists deny this and the hotel will not comment.

But if you’ve watched Rodman recently, does this at all seem unlikely or out of character?

      sounds like bull to me.

      • skids003 - Mar 5, 2013 at 5:03 PM

        He’s a traitor.

  2. jeff6381 - Mar 5, 2013 at 2:53 PM

    I don’t believe it.

    • fanofevilempire - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:11 PM

      I agree.

  3. southbeachtalent - Mar 5, 2013 at 2:59 PM

    Yea Worm, North Korea is awesome! Move!!

    What an absolutely clueless moron.

  4. dangernearing - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:01 PM

    I love how it states the bartender was getting pissed. What was he really gonna take on Rodman? Cmon

    • biasedhomer - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:12 PM

      Thats why they have bouncers.

      • dangernearing - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:35 PM

        Well they did not say the bouncers were mad did they?

      • southbeachtalent - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:49 PM

        Well we tend to use common sense..

      • dangernearing - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:13 PM

        He’d kick their asses too

    • hannsta - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:39 PM

      In a society thats advanced beyond apes not all disagreements have to end in fights.

  5. balfe13 - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:16 PM

    How dare Dennis Rodman have an opinion that runs counter to that of mainstream media!!!

    • southbeachtalent - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:21 PM

      By mainstream media do you mean genocide? Or do you mean enslavement?

      • brutl - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:43 PM

        Genocide like the US “crusade” against Islam? (Our recent president’s words, not mine)
        Does enslavement count if it’s your mind that is enslaved? Or if you are a slave to your posessions? (do you live in south beach?)
        Have no doubt our media has you as convinced as they are about themselves, that we are just and they are evil.

      Would you like to offer up evidence that they are wrong about North Korea?

    • dko83 - Mar 5, 2013 at 9:06 PM

      Hahaha, defending North Korea. I’ve heard it all.

  6. trollaikman8 - Mar 5, 2013 at 3:52 PM

    Kukoc wouldn’t do this.

  7. katra2logic - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:11 PM

    Much ado about nothing…

  8. barnesaintnoble - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:26 PM

    Dennis Rodman is the kind of guy that needs a coach, in basketball and life. Phil Jackson? Chuck Daly? He’s fine. Might have a wierd look, but he is rationally under control (for the most part). Without a coach, he is just an unfiltered dumbass alcoholic. You got to imagine that this is not all him, he must have a sleazy manager/agent who set this whole trip up and an entourage egging him on and not telling him how ridiculous the things coming out of his mouth are. Doesn’t excuse what he is doing, but it does make me feel a little bad for a guy who has no idea what’s going on.

  9. dbldmr - Mar 5, 2013 at 4:54 PM

    Yeah, brutl, being a slave to your possessions is pretty much the same as being in a prison camp. One other similarity is freedom of expression. I’m sure most North Koreans can take a poke at Kim on their iPads as they surf the net. Gee, life there is just like here except for the lack of food, freedom, and electricity.

    • cosanostra71 - Mar 5, 2013 at 5:21 PM

      Hey, every North Korean has a job, healthcare and home. Just ask Kim himself.

  10. badintent - Mar 5, 2013 at 6:00 PM

    Rodman did make a great point to George that some folks here would argue that America has over 200,000 political prisoners, folks that got lockup for a few grams of pot.The massive DC lobby firms that pay off most of the Congressmen to allow cigerattes and alcohol that kill thousands every year also preach that pot most be kept illlegal. That way the Mexican cartel can make Billions $$$ kill off thousands of their own civilians. If that makes sense, then America is the same as North Korea in that context. America has over 2,000.000 city , state and federal prisioners right now. Sounds like a dictatorship to me with those numbers.

    • Kurt Helin - Mar 5, 2013 at 7:51 PM

      I think anyone in a North Korean prison would trade places with someone in even a max security American prison. Just a guess.

      • badintent - Mar 6, 2013 at 1:15 AM

        Kurt ,I have no info on NK prsion, but I have seen Nat Geo’s Extreme Lockup show ! Check it out. Yeah at least they do get food. Dog food but it’s food.

    • nlruizjr - Mar 6, 2013 at 6:11 PM

      Don’t worry, the Republicans are doing their best to reduce those numbers, so many more can enjoy the fruits of unemployment…… oh wait, they cut that off too !!!!!!!

  11. mungman69 - Mar 5, 2013 at 6:09 PM

    Why do we listen to Rodman? Are we all idiots?

  12. ebrownwareagle - Mar 5, 2013 at 6:39 PM

    Sooo we are a Country where the enslavement of Black people was legal. Where The killing, beating and hanging of the same black people was accepted and stat quo! A country that has and always have had Nuclear Weapons, but yet we tell EVERYBODY ELSE they can’t do it. Hypocrisy at it’s Best!

    • metalhead65 - Mar 5, 2013 at 7:14 PM

      tell me you would be able to write this crap in n.korea without serious repercussions. nobody is saying he is not entitled to be a complete idiot for saying it only that he is a complete moron for doing so and you a complete idiot for agreeing with him. facts are facts and the fact is he is murderous dictator who is starving his people and brutally repressing any expression of freedom. the guy is a madman ready to start a nuclear war but he is a good guy according the lunatic rodman and is delusional followers like you.

  13. nodindenver - Mar 5, 2013 at 11:41 PM

    Just in case you did not know, Dennis Rodman has spent a large majority of his time the last twenty years or so in the bar/clubs. You do not think his time with young Kim was spent in a serene setting lake-side enjoying tea did you?

    • badintent - Mar 6, 2013 at 1:18 AM

      Yes , the booze destroyed over 90 % of Dennis ‘s brain cells. I mean come on , WE talkiing about throwing Carmen Electra out of his bed. You know the man is blind or gone bats or both . !!

  14. omniusprime - Mar 6, 2013 at 9:13 AM

    Denise Rodman has shown what a worthless waste of skin he truly is. He should be tossed from this country for being such a suck-up to the Un-leader of North Korea. He obviously has no clue about international politics or history. Only a total moron like Denise Rodman would think the little Kims of North Korea were great leaders instead of the dictatorial monsters they’ve always been.

    Move to North Korea Worhtless Worm!!!

    Said the ”spy”..but the hotel doesn’t have a comment about it..neither does anyone else who was there other than this ”spy”..anyways..there are people starving here too..yet the number of billionaires here increased 16% from last year (Forbes)..take the total population of America..take the total number of people imprisoned here..what’s the percentages and how do they stack up?..we just have a ”democracy” here ( who’s was that president that we didn’t vote for but still won again? Lol)..so we believe we are free..when in reality..banks..big business..and the one percent run this..follow the money people..everything is circumstantial..like when a gun control law gets passed and they take ur guns..certain elite will still have theirs (whether that’s armed body guards or actual gun they carry themselves)..or how American people need help keeping homes and out government says..well..sorry..but then banks ”supposibly” (BANKS!!!..u mean the places that only hold a certain percent of the total money put in them..while charging people to have accounts?..find it hard to believe) need help..and put government says..sure how much u need?..hey gas company how much bailout money do you need from tax payer money while paying no taxes? Lol what a joke

  16. bleugrassboy - Mar 6, 2013 at 11:49 AM

    Rodman is just like Lindsay Lohan.
    A has-been who’s trying to say or do anything to stay in the news and try to somehow someway make some money.

    Ignore him.
    Ignore her.

    If we ignore them and not get “outraged” eventually they just fade away into obscurity.
