Yesterday, during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Dennis Rodman flipped out over questions regarding his latest trip to North Korea.

The ex-basketball star came across like he was cutting a promo for the WWE in defending his visit to Pyongyang for Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday today.

Now, however, Rodman is the one on the receiving end of someone else's venom. And rightfully so, many would argue.

The question that set Rodman off was about Kenneth Bae, an American sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp by the North Korean government because he allegedly committed "hostile acts" while running a tour operation in that country.

Those acts have never been explained and Bae's imprisonment is considered a prime example of the human rights violations enacted on a constant basis by Kim Jong Un and company.

Dennis Rodman went positively ballistic today during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

While surrounded with several former NBA players, Rodman defended his trips to North Korea as a "great idea for the world."

But should the group, who is due to play in a basketball game tomorrow in honor of Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday, really be in Pyongyang? Is this a good idea, considering North Korea's human rights record?

Cuomo also asked Rodman a serious question about Kenneth Bae, an American citizen who was arrested in November 2012, convicted last spring by North Korea of unexplained "hostile acts" and sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp… only for Rodman to FLIP OUT.

He sounds like Hulk Hogan giving a wrestling promo in the following video. You must watch it now:

Then again... really, CNN?!? Why are you giving this man any kind of political platform?

Dennis Rodman returned from his second trip to North Korea and promptly revealed the name of dicator and friend Kim Jong Un's baby daughter.

The NBA Hall of Famer told The Guardian (UK) about a "relaxing time by the sea" spent with Kim and his family. And he also let slip the baby's name.

Speculation sprang up last year that Kim might be a dad after a photo showed his wife wearing a long coat that could have been hiding a bump.

North Korean authorities kept quiet about the matter, although Rodman confirmed Kim had a baby girl. Now after his return visit, he's got the name.

The flamboyant Rodman said, "I held their baby Ju Ae and spoke with Ms. Ri as well," referring to his wife and calling Kim Jong Un "a good dad."

Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea. The NBA Hall of Famer is making a second trip to the rogue nation helmed by his "friend for life" Kim Jong Un.

The purpose of The Worm's return is somewhat unclear, but he says he will NOT try to negotiate the release of an American held by Kim's regime since 2012.

"I'm not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae," Rodman told media in Beijing. "I'm just going there on another basketball diplomacy tour."

"I just want to meet my friend Kim, the marshal, and start a basketball league. I have not been promised anything. I am just going there as a friendly gesture."

"I'm just going over there to have a good time and try to bridge the gap."

Eccentric NBA legend Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip to North Korea, according to reports, with his sights set on much more than basketball.

The star wants to broker a peace deal between the United States and the (erroneously named) Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Seriously.

Obama, Rodman, Kim

Rodman's rep says that despite a storied career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, records, awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."

Whoa whoa. Slow down. Guy is the career rebounds per game leader in the NBA since 1973. He once averaged 18 per game in a season! Insane.

Back from a whirlwind trip to North Korea, Dennis Rodman says his "friend for life" Kim Jong Un just wants President Barack Obama to call him.

The former NBA star told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on This Week, "He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him. He said, 'If you can, Dennis.'"

"I don't want [to] do war. I don't want to do war.' He said that to me."

The 51-year-old athlete said the two sides already have common ground, and he offered Kim some advice for potential future talks with Obama.

"[Kim] loves basketball. And I said the same thing, I said, 'Obama loves basketball.' Let's start there," the Basketball Hall of Fame member said.
