Dennis Rodman Takes Legal Action Against Video Game Maker

Dennis Rodman Takes Legal Action Against Video Game Maker

Game depicts him fighting America with North Korean leader.

Published December 24, 2014

Looks like Dennis Rodman is done with basketball diplomacy. The former NBA player, who has been criticized in the past for his close relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, has threatened to take legal action against the creator of a video game that portrays him fighting side by side with Kim to defeat Americans, TMZ reports.

The Glorious Leader! game allows players to challenge America by assuming the digitally rendered characters of Kim or Rodman.

According to a letter from Rodman's attorney to Glorious Leader! creator Jeff Miller, Rodman is unhappy with the negative way the video game portrays him and has asked Miller to remove his character from the game.

The motion comes after North Korea has been accused of hacking into Sony Entertainment's computers and leaking hundreds of confidential — and extremely embarrassing — emails. The cyber-terrorist attack was the first of its kind and resulted in Sony canceling the release of The Interview, which portrays James Franco and Seth Rogan killing Kim Jong-un.
