Former boxing champion Mike Tyson did not mince words on Friday while discussing Dennis Rodman’s recent trip to North Korea, saying the former NBA star committed an act of treason.
It’s treason. It’s treason, 100%. Look, I’m not politically incarnate or anything, but when you examine what treason is, it’s treason. He’s in another land, that’s an enemy of our land, and he’s talking [expletive] on us. He’s talking really bad to our guys over there.
And he’s defending [North Korea]. And plus they’ve got one of our guys over there in prison, and he’s defending them, saying ‘do you know what that guy did?’ Well you don’t either. You become his lackey. He must have paid them with money, I’m sure he’s getting paid. I’m sure Dennis is not doing this out of the kindness of his heart.
Tyson went on to discuss the surreal nature of Rodman’s now-infamous CNN meltdown, saying he felt like it was sketch gone wrong and that he “couldn’t even believe [it was] real.”
