Screen Shot 2014-01-09 at 3.43.53 PMDennis Rodman has apologized for his comments when speaking to CNN the other day while he was in North Korea preparing a basketball game featuring for NBA players, as it was a birthday present for the country's leader, Kim Jong-Un.

"I want to apologize," Rodman said Thursday. "I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates. My dream of basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It's not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed. It's not an excuse, it's just the truth."

Rodman spoke about Kenneth Bae (a Korean-American citizen who has been held in jail by the government) to CNN, saying, "Kenneth Bae did one thing. If you understand what Kenneth Bae did -- do you understand what he did in this country?"

The basketball game for Jong-Un happened last night.
