After his controversial interview on ABC’s This Week yesterday, it appears that ex-NBA star-turned-wannabe-diplomat Dennis Rodman canceled a slew of other scheduled media appearances on other networks.
The eccentric basketball player has been in the news because of his trip to North Korea, in which he ran a basketball camp and became “friends” with dictator Kim Jong Un. His Sunday morning talk show appearance came as a surprise to most, and he seemed to only damage his public image by declaring that the Korean dictator’s murderous reign is somewhat excusable because “we do the same things here.”
Rodman was apparently scheduled for an interview with ESPN’s Bob Ley for an Outside The Lines special, but author James Andrew Miller reported that it never happened:
The pro-baller best known as “The Worm” was also reportedly scheduled to appear on NBC’s Today Show this morning, but that never happened.
Did Rodman’s PR team decide to yank any further possibilities for him to declare his love for a dictator on live television? We may never know.
And so now we media reporters are officially on “Dennis Rodman Watch.”
