During Pearl Jam’s latest concert in Chicago, Illinois, the band brought out their very own special guest. It was Dennis Rodman, the former basketball player – who made a few surprising comments.
As fans of the cultural icon know, Dennis has gone to North Korea on a number of different occasions to speak with Kim Jung-Un, who apparently, has a fascination with American basketball, as well as Rodman, himself, in particular.
The former star of the Chicago Bulls thanked those in the audience who supported him lobbying the US government unofficially.
Rodman said to the crowd, “you people here are the only people on this planet Earth that gave me support.” Additionally, the ex-NBA player promised those in Chicago that he would be buried in Windy City.
Eddie Vedder, the frontman of the band, said that Dennis should hold his death off as long as he could. In case you didn’t know, Dennis recently appeared on CNN after President Donald Trump met with the North Korean leader for the first time nearly two months ago.
When the basketball player was on the air, he was wearing a Make America Great Again hat and he addressed the criticism he suffered for trying to bring the United States and North Korea together.
According to the basketball player, Barack Obama “never gave him the time of day” when it came to bringing North Korea and the United States to a resolution.
Dennis said, “but, that didn’t deter me,” and he kept going back to the nation. Surprisingly, Rodman has since fostered a bond with both Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.
Rodman is certainly an esoteric individual, as he is most famous for his eccentricities, in addition to being a great basketball player. During his time in the NBA, he was nicknamed, “The Worm,” and was hailed for his defensive abilities.
