People are pretty merciless in mocking Kim Jong-un, but the North Korean leader brings it on himself. 

That's the view of comedian Steve N Allen, who told Yasmeen Khan it's absurd that the Pyongyang ruler is overweight when so many of his people or starving. 

Allen believes that the mocking does bother Jong-un somewhat, as he has put pressure on China to block the phrase 'Kim fatty the third' online. 

He also added that mocking is a good way of undermining someone's power, which is why it also happens to Donald Trump. But Jong-un is mocked more because he makes people call him supreme leader, and Trump does not.
