Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has apologised for his public outburst on CNN.
Rodman has been criticised for publicly backing North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un.
Ex-Chicago Bulls forward Rodman appeared in a basketball match along with several other former NBA stars to celebrate Kim Jong-Un's birthday.
Rodman did not take to kindly to questions - asked by CNN's Chris Cuomo - about why he had travelled to North Korea to visit Kim Jong-Un.
The 52-year-old, who sang 'happy birthday' to the leader during the match, has since apologised for his rant.
Rodman issued a statement saying: "I want to apologize. I take full responsibility for my actions.
"It had been a very stressful day. ... I had been drinking. ... I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae's family. ... I embarrassed a lot of people. I'm very sorry."
