Guess not really news that the Chinese aren't thrilled with Sharon Stone. :D Glen Beck was really going off on her as the most stupid woman on the planet, the "dumber than a box of rocks" award winner. He kept playing her statements that the Chinese do not do good things and are bad, very bad. It sounded like an elementary school student.

It actually almost sounded like the dialogue of a Power Ranger show, the simplistic black and white vision of good vs evil. :eek: :rolleyes:

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.


Suspect they won't be taking her up on her offer to assist them.
