“I kept thinking one thing: what happens to a North Korean cheerleader who laughs at a Kim Jong Un impersonator when she gets home?”
Yahoo Sports spoke to the impersonator after he was removed. The man said he lives in Hong Kong, is not Korean and doesn't speak Korean.
“(I wanted to) enjoy the game, meet the cheerleaders, which I did, and create some good political satire,” he said.
The impersonator claimed he was kicked multiple times by the men who took him out of the arena.
“They shouted something in Korean. I wasn’t sure what it was,” he said, “and then the police got involved and they dragged me away – they said for my own safety.”
"Howard," for his part, said he came for a cause of peace between the U.S. and North Korea. He is the same man who posed with a Donald Trump impersonator at the opening ceremony.
“This is seen as the peace Olympics, so let’s hope that peace endures and those two idiots stop launching missiles and insults at each other on Twitter,” he said. “I guess everybody has a cause, you know? I have an advantage to advance this cause. I was born with this face.”
According to the impersonator, he was only removed until after the cheerleaders left the game and because his presence offended some of the more conservative spectators.
