Rodman is seen getting choked up while discussing the lofty goals he had for the 2012 basketball-themed trip and the backlash he received for agreeing to meet with the country's infamous dictator.
"No one's ever done this," he said in a clip shared by Deadline. "You know, you've got the Jay Zs, the Beyonces, stuff like that-- none of these people in the world that's [sic] way more famous than I am are doing what I'm doing," he said before pausing. A tear can be seen coming down his face past his large bedazzled sunglasses.
"Really what am I doing? And it's like 'Don't you know that that he just killed his uncle and chopped off his head?' And I said 'No I didn't know that, what?!' 'Don't you know he killed people a lot?' 'No I don't know that. Do we in America? Yeah! What?!' Why am I doing it?" he said.
Rodman claims that he received death threats over the trip, where he was accompanied by several Harlem Globetrotters players.
"Why am I trying to change s***? You know, I'm not Martin Luther King... If someone [wants to] shoot me please do it today," he said.
