After yesterday’s beating from the Chinese, Sharon Stone is still being kicked while she’s down only this time it’s by the people at Dior. TMZ reports that after Stone claimed that the recent earthquake that killed tens of thousands of people could be considered karma for human rights abuses committed by the Chinese a sector of the Chinese film industry stated that in response it would no longer air her movies and now Christian Dior has pulled all ads featuring her face from Asia. The official Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary Thursday she was the "public enemy of all mankind."

Oh now come on everyone in the world. Hang on. Just calm down and wait a second. Sharon Stone was just speaking her mind. She’s really just doing what she normally does, which is to say whatever comes to mind with dramatic, Pinter-esque pauses. She makes it up as she goes along with the best of intentions and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s the great thing about Sharon Stone. You just sit back and watch what happens and try to ignore the slurring.

She even apologized by saying:

"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."

And it’s not like she doesn’t know her stuff. She knows what she’s talking about it’s just that maybe somewhere between her mind and her mouth it gets a little scrambled every now and then. This is really all Sharon Stone does now; she goes around the world attending events, raising money, speaking her mind and wandering about in gowns. It’s just not fair to take away her wandering, speaking opportunities in Asia. Come on China and Christian Dior. Give the dear woman a break. She’s dancing as fast as she can and she’s a class act.
