31/05: Sharon Stone's folly

How foolish can a person be? Or even so heartless as to trying to gain political mileage out of a catastrophe?

It goes to show how dumb (in the stupid sense) people can be. I wrote about the Chinese earthquake previously on my blog here and expected that such a tragedy would bring people across the world together in helping China. In fact, I didn't even knew of Sharon Stone until she opened her moth to say that the earthquake in China might be bad karma due to China's alleged treatment of Tibet. And I quote her:

"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,"..."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?" - source

Does she also think that Katrina was a result of bad karma from the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan where millions of lives have been lost due to American policies? Or maybe Basic Instinct 2 with $70 million production cost resulted in less than $6 million in ticket sales is also due to karma?

I applaud the Chinese nation who unanimously condemned Stone and are trying to hurt her where it hurts the most: monetarily. Many Chinese cinemas (under UME Cineplex) have refused to show movies in which she has performed (and will perform in the future) and Christian Dior advertisements featuring Stone's image were also dropped from all ads in China amidst the public uproar. Even on previous controversial issues (e.g. cartoons of Prophet Muhammad), I have urged the people from not partaking in violent protesting. Instead, boycotting the products and making the perpetrators suffer economic loss is the best way to go around showing your protest. After all, in a capitalist world, what hurts most is an economic loss.

I also learned today that she has apologized for her comments but I strongly believe that the apologies are not sincere and are just the result of bad publicity she is getting now. So, for what it counts, her apologies are falling on deaf ears across China. After all, slapping deliberately and then saying 'sorry' is just not enough. I urge the Chinese government and the people to keep implementing the economic boycott where Sharon Stone is concerned.

Chinese believe in retribution. Reap what you sow. Maybe Sharon wasnt that far off since China does not have a good reputation for taking care of Mother Earth.

i think if no american bought chinese products, workshops in china would be all shut down and china could have a good reputation for taking good care of mother earth.
however, those developed countries will turn to another place to get those cheap products then.

In my view, this also goes on to show that Sharon is a superstitious person. And this is not the first time this has happened. When the October 8 earthquake hit Pakistan in 2005, I heard people here in Pakistan talking about divine intervention in this matter, that it was the misdeeds of those people that they faced such a terrible catastrophe.They were also of the view that in Islamabad, only Margalla Towers collapsed due to the earthquake and no other building because very bad people were living in those towers! The truth is that they were in general rich people and people here tend to associate riches with this kind of thing. Why don't they understand earthquake is a natural calamity and hits the pious and sinful the same way.
