However, Rodman received several negative comments on the post, and as the comments piled up, he posted a message to his Instagram Stories addressing the haters.
«Investigate guys,» he wrote, «#beenhim.»
His words were posted on top of a collage that featured various images of Rodman during the prime of his NBA career in a wedding dress and other outfits that were considered controversial at the time.
In 2019, Rodman spoke to Business Insider about attitudes toward LGBTQ athletes in sports, as some professional players began coming out as gay. Rodman estimated at the time that around 10-20% of professional athletes were part of the LGBTQ community.

She also talked about the 1995 Sports Illustrated cover in which she posed in drag. He said that she received a lot of compliments from the gay community.
«They were unaware of the fact that when [they] I shot that cover for Sports Illustrated that that was the best-selling Sports Illustrated of all time,» Rodman said. «And then the gay community started reaching out to me and said, ‘Wow, we never knew our community could be represented like that on sports. And people didn’t know at the time that he was doing that.»
He added that he never thought it was a big deal.
«I was, you know, in all the drag clubs, I was dressing in drag. I was dressing in women’s clothes. I was doing lingerie and stuff like that and people in the gay community started hugging me,» she said.
