Former NBA champion Dennis Rodman is as blunt as one can get. He rarely fails to speak his mind out on various topics which sometimes lands him in trouble. During an interview on Good Morning Britain, it wasn’t Rodman who got into a problem and had to apologize. Rather, it was the host Susanna Reid. Along with some technical glitches during the show, she also had to apologize for the Chicago Bulls legend’s antics.

Rodman had indulged in using some profanity during his interview which might have been really amusing for the audience. However, the host had to apologize which urged Piers Morgan to step in and back Rodman.
