Is This Karma?

It's pretty obvious at this point that not everyone appreciates Sharon Stone's brash, outspoken manner.... Stone's remarks have been met with major anger in China, where people have now promised to boycott her films. Um, what films? China figured this wasn't harming her enough, so they figured they would try her even more and get her CUT from the Christian Dior campaign.

Dior was one of the first international brands to enter China and has won the affection and respect of the consuming public. We absolutely do not support any remark that hurts the Chinese people's feelings. We express our sorrow over the compatriots who lost their lives in the earthquake in Wenchuan, Sichuan, and we extend our sympathy and condolences to the people in the disaster area." Stone has also done her mea culpas. She was quoted by the Beijing News, "In the course of the interview I made inappropriate remarks and for any harm created towards the Chinese people I am extremely sad and apologize."

TOO LATE. I guess it doesn't pay to hurt 1 BILLION people's feelings.
