Sharon Stone: China earthquake was karma

We're still cleaning up the crumbs from Cannes, so we have to point out Sharon Stone's ridiculous comments over the long weekend about the earthquake in central China. A YouTube video shows Stone telling an interviewer that she thought karma was to blame for the deaths of more than 67,000 people.

"At first 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 says when asked about the tragedy. "And then I’ve been concerned about, you know, how should we deal with the Olympics, because they’re not being nice to the Dalai Lama, who’s a good friend of mine. And then all this Earthquake and stuff happened and I thought 'Is that karma, when you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?' "

Hoo boy. But it's all good, because Sharon then said she got some good news.

"And then I got a letter from the Tibetan foundation, that they wanted to go and be helpful. And that made me cry," she said. “It was a big lesson to me that sometimes you have to learn to put your head down and be of service even to people who aren’t nice to you.”

Well hot dog, it's so nice she took a cue from her "good friend" and decided that maybe she should help people out instead of badmouthing politics at a swank red carpet event while people are suffering.
