Sharon Stone Apologizes for 'Karma' Remarks against China

Thursday, May 29, 2008

OUCH! Someone's getting beaten in the gigantic country called China. Apparently, there was a YouTube video circulating on the internet showing actress Sharon Stone making comments on China's actions against the Tibetans.


In the video she said: "I'm not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else."

She also added: "And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma -- when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

This enraged the Chinese, who already banned her Christian Dior posters from being displayed on all stores in China. These comments refer to the Tibetan attacks by the Chinese government which aims to crackdown the alleged plan of the Dalai Lama to sabotage the Beijing Olympics. The Dalai Lama has denied these accusations.

The massive earthquake hit the Sichuan province in China on May 12 leaving nearly 88,000 people missing or dead.

Meanwhile, Stone has issued a statement apologising for her remarks. In a letter sent to the AFP news wire agency, she said: "My erroneous words and deeds angered and saddened the Chinese people, and I sincerely apologise for this."

UPDATE: DIOR has dropped Stone.
