A day after a meltdown on CNN that brought outrage over his support for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Dennis Rodman led a group of former NBA players onto a basketball court for an exhibition in Pyongyang and sang “Happy Birthday” to Kim.
“It started out as surreal, then people joined in and it sort of faded a bit, but it seemed pretty heartfelt from Rodman’s side,” Simon Cockerell, a tour guide who attended the game, said (via Reuters) of Rodman’s Marilyn Monroe moment. “It was unexpected, and probably unplanned. Kim Jong Un appeared to smile, but he didn’t appear to expect it.”
