after sharon stone made the remark, Dior said that they would take off her advertisement for Dior in China, and one man who opened cinemas in china iad he would not play any of Sharon Stone's movies in his theaters. later, Sharon Stone decided to apologize for her remark on the quake. Do you think she's sincere with the apology or do you smell something fishy?

BEIJING (AP) — 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?"

its pretty much forced by society on her; if she doesn't, then her fame would go down and she wouldn't have a job or career for living.

even though what she say is deeply foolish and is super disrespectful to chinese people; but thats' her belief, I don't understand why the public would make such a fuss about it x_x but oh well....her idiocy to say such a thing in public or with such a foolish reason >_<;

Psh... She should've never opened her mouth to begin with.
Talking about something she doesn't know.

Omok: Do you know how much nationalism people have for their own country? Specially the chinese
Talking about something relating to karma like that specially to an asian culture is a big no-no.

I think its her opinion she has the right to say what she wants
was it right?
I dont think so
but work and your personal life should be kept seperate
but I dont think her apology was completly sincere considering she would lose out on money

Wow calling an earthquake that killed lots of school kids who probably had nothing to do with Tibet karma is pretty tactless

She shouldn't have said it in the 1st place
