A KIM JONG-UN impersonator says he was dragged out of the Winter Olympics by “North Korean heavies” after turning up in character and dancing in front of regime cheerleaders.
Photos taken today show the lookalike – who is notorious for appearing at public events dressed as the despot – waving to the country’s cheerleader team at a united Korea hockey game against Japan.
Impersonator [and Chinese-Australian] Howard today exclusively told The Sun: “I was actually late to the game. When I arrived, I went straight over to the North Korean cheerleaders and waving the flag and supporting them on and clapping.
“They looked really surprised and shocked. Some of them laughed, and got it, but most of them were totally shocked and I was told to sit down by a few heavies.
“After that a few heavies rushed over really p***ed off and I suspect they were North Korean delegates, just by the way they were dressed. I can’t confirm, but (they were) most likely North Korean.
“They dragged me out and they kicked me in the shins and were shouting something really angrily in Korean.” …
“I thought I’d turn up in character and give the games a little bit more spice, after all, South Korea is a democracy, with freedom of speech and I think we need to satirise the whole situation.”
In North Korea, anyone impersonating of a member of the ruling Kim family would be considered blasphemous.
How’s that for Australian culture?
