Dennis Rodman admits to being drunk during CNN outburst [VIDEO]

Dennis Rodman has a perfectly reasonable excuse for his insane outburst during a CNN interview on Tuesday: He was wasted out of his damn mind. (RELATED VIDEO: Dennis Rodman FLIPS OUT on CNN)

Rodman was being interviewed via satellite from North Korea when he lost his mind after Chris Cuomo asked him if he would talk to his best friend Kim Jong Un about the detainment of American Kenneth Bae.

The Worm issued a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday:

“I want to apologize. 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 dreams 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.

I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae’s family. I want to apologize to my teammates and my management team. I also want to apologize to Chris Cuomo. I embarrassed a lot of people. I’m very sorry. At this point I should know better than to make political statements. I’m truly sorry.

Who would have thought that Dennis Rodman would get hammered and embarrass himself in public? It’s almost like it’s 1999 all over again.
