*Dennis Rodman is calling on his boy, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, to release a U.S. citizen imprisoned for allegedly committing unspecified “hostile acts” against the country’s oppressive regime.

The former NBA star made headlines in February when he struck up an unusual friendship with the dictator during a visit to the country to run a basketball camp for children.

Now, Rodman is requesting the release of Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American who was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in April following his arrest in November.

Rodman tweeted, “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.”
