Amid heighten tension over threatening missile launches and the detention of 4 american citizens, the androgynous cross dressing freak of nature and Basketball legend Dennis Rodman is said to be on his way to North Korea to visit his long time pal, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
Business Insider- North Korean officials confirmed that Rodman was expected to arrive in Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, on Tuesday. A senior US official also confirmed Rodman's trip and said he was not there in an official capacity. Rodman declined to answer questions when he was spotted by CNN journalists at Beijing International Airport. Rodman has visited North Korea at least four times — his last trip being in 2014 where he and former NBA All-Stars played an exhibition game as a "birthday present" for Kim Jong Un. Rodman has in the past defended his trips as "basketball diplomacy" and called them a "great idea for the world." However, Rodman has been accused of ignoring North Korea's human rights atrocities, including the case of American citizen Kenneth Bae, who was held prisoner and sentenced to forced labor by the regime for allegedly planning to overthrow the North Korean government.
