Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is encouraging Americans to put their vacation plans to North Korea on hold, strictly due to the coronavirus. Before expressing his concerns, Rodman first congratulated Kim Jong-un, as the country has yet to report a single case of the virus.
“Obviously, my man Kim has done an incredible job at containing the COVID,” said Rodman. “Just look at the numbers. They are, literally, at zero.”
While it wasn’t completely clear, Rodman’s assertion seemed to focus more on protecting the North Korean population rather than Americans, as he said, “We don’t need the COVID. They don’t need the COVID. Ain’t nobody need the COVID.”
The NBA star added that he laments having to issue this warning, considering North Korea is an excellent vacation spot.
