Sharon Stone apologizes for remark on China quake

French fashion house Christian Dior said Thursday it has dropped Sharon Stone from its Chinese ads and released a statement from the actress apologizing for saying China's earthquake may have been bad karma for its treatment of Tibet.

The 50-year-old actress said she was "deeply sorry" for causing anguish and anger among Chinese people with her remarks in an interview last week. Stone models for Christian Dior SA, and the company's Shanghai office issued the statement.

Stone's comments caused considerable anger in the Chinese media. The official Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary Thursday she was the "public enemy of all mankind."

The public relations manager for Dior in Shanghai who gave only her surname, Guo, said Stone would no longer appear in the company's advertisements in China.

"Due to my inappropriate words and acts during the interview, I feel deeply sorry and sad about hurting Chinese people," Stone said in the statement. "I am willing to take part in the relief work of China's earthquake, and wholly devote myself to helping affected Chinese people."

Chinese media have erupted in indignation over foreign criticism of the country ahead of the Beijing Olympics in August. During the international leg of the Olympic torch relay, many Chinese reacted strongly to protests over China's rule of Tibet.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Thursday he had taken note of Stone's apology.

"We hope that as an actress she should contribute to our two peoples' mutual trust, understanding and friendship," he said.

Stone's original comments were made last week during a Cannes Film Festival red-carpet interview.

"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," Stone said. "And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

No one, in their right mind, could or would ever be "happy" about the mistreatment of the Tibetan people. But Stone's thoughtlessness and
her abuse of some people is a matter of record. As for this so-called karma
of hers, she can take that and shove it!!!!
If you think I don't like her, you're right, I don't!!
She blasted Steven from one end of the entertainment field to the other.
I've never forgotten it and I never will!

God bless,

Whew! I hope you never get mad at me!!!

Like the rest of the liberal left she suffers from the JFSyndrome (Jane Fonda Syndrome). Stick their face in front of a camera and they get so inflated with themselves that they think the world hangs on every word that passes their lips whether their brain is engaged or not. Followed by the ideology that their opinion is the only valid one which anyone should consider.

While I agree with her stance on freeing Tibet, I can't fathom the need to send such bad 'karma' in the direction of people who have suffered so much in the last few weeks. No matter what our political opinion, the Chinese government has done it's best, at least to all appearances, to aid and help their people. By the same respect, I wonder what she has personally done to help others in both these situations and in Burma/Myanmar.

So now that you have 'vented' Mama san, cool down and let yourself return to the nice sweet person you normally are on this forum.

The woman isn't winning any points from me either.

Now Heather

Don't be hard on frank...

he has nothing to do with this...

I should have said her last name best describes her mind.

A cold, solid, lump.

Ohhh, catty, catty, Meow, meow! Pffftt!


Last I read Sharon Stone was eating humble pie and apologising for what she said.
Dior dismissing her must have brought the message home.

Not only that, but...

The largest film distributor in China has banned her films from his theaters...

A major financial blow to the producers and studios of those films...

Sharon forgot the people of China are precious in Gods sight too!

Sharon Stone not welcome at Shanghai film fest

HONG KONG - The backlash in China against Sharon Stone continued Wednesday as the Shanghai International Film Festival said the American actress was not welcome at this year's event.

The 50-year-old "Basic Instinct" star provoked outrage in China after suggesting the recent earthquake in central Sichuan province may have been the result of bad "karma" because of Beijing's rule in Tibet.

French fashion house Christian Dior dropped Stone from its Chinese ads after she made the comments in May during a Cannes Film Festival red-carpet interview.

Stone, who walked the red carpet in Shanghai last year, will not be invited back soon, Shanghai International Film Festival spokeswoman Tang Bing said Wednesday.

Tang said film festival organizers sent Stone a letter protesting her remarks and demanding an apology.

Stone has said she was "deeply sorry" for causing anguish and anger among Chinese people, and offered to take part in quake relief efforts.

The Hollywood actress previously impressed festival organizers with her charity work and her appearance last year, and her comments came as a surprise, Tang said.

"She showed her affinity for the Chinese people and her affinity for Shanghai. She didn't say any bad things," said Tang.

The Shanghai festival is scheduled for June 14-22.

Stone's Hollywood publicist didn't immediately return an after-hours call Wednesday seeking further comment.

Chinese have also lashed out at Western media for allegedly biased coverage of China's crackdown on anti-government protests in Tibet in March. Beijing says Tibet is historically part of China, but many Tibetans argue the region was virtually independent for centuries.

Stone's film credits also include "Total Recall," "Sliver," "Casino" and "The Mighty."

The death toll from the May 12 earthquake in China has passed 69,100.
