The Kim Jong Un impersonator who was removed from Winter Olympic events earlier this week made another spectacle on Wednesday, when he tried to interact with North Korean cheerleaders at a hockey event, before being forcefully removed from the arena.
“Howard from Australia,” as he calls himself, made his second appearance without his initial Trump look-alike partner. The two had been ousted from an event together earlier in the week.

Howard walked in front of the North Korean cheer squad in the stands Wednesday and waved a unification flag with a gleeful smile on his face. The impersonator also reportedly had a seat nearby.
But security personnel at the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics quickly stepped in and moved the Kim lookalike out of the arena as a crowd of attendees watched.
“This is how I look,” the impersonator said as police led him into a staff room.
Officials surrounded him in a hall outside of the seating area to prevent him from going back into the ice hockey game.

“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,” he recalled.
He said “a few heavies,” who he suspects to be North Korean delegates, were mad and rushed over to remove him.
“They dragged me out and they kicked me in the shins and were shouting something really angrily in Korean,” he said.
