(RNN) - Dennis Rodman sent a tweet calling on Kim Jong Un to "do him a solid' and release American citizen Kenneth Bae. Bae was sentenced to 15 years hard labor after North Korea deemed he was a threat to the government.
The former NBA icons tweet says, "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him "Kim", to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose."
Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters traveled to North Korea earlier this year. After meeting dictator Kim Jong Un, Rodman called him a "friend for life."
