Rev. Jesse Jackson turned to Twitter on Monday to lavish praise on former NBA player Dennis Rodman for his North Korean "diplomacy efforts."

"Congrads @dennisrodman on your diplomacy efforts in North Korea," the civil-rights icon said in a now deleted tweet. "It must be dark but you are a light!"

Jackson followed up that message with an additional tweet to Rodman saying that "ping pong diplomacy worked in China, and Basketball seems to work in North Korea. #KeepHopeAlive."

Rodman, who has visited North Korea several times, says dictator Kim Jong-Un is his friend and is coaching the communist country's basketball team.

On Monday, CNN host Anderson Cooper said the former NBA player is "deeply stupid."
