I really don't understand people's obsession's with what famous people come out with.

They're just people. And opinion's are like what we sit on...

Chinese Karma , Burmese Karma , Pakistanese Karma, American Karma.... etc. etc. etc. ......everything that goes round will come round in one form or the other. This is call "Law of Nature". No one knows who's next and in what form. Read a bit more about Buddhism before anyone makes remarks on it. It is one of the oldest (2554 years old) philosophy, which can still be applied today. Good of you 'Sharon'.

To be honest I think she is right!! China is an evil corrupt brainwashed nation they will get no sympathy from me! Did they give Tibet or Fallon Gong any sympathy?

Corporations like Dior make me sick. They swoon to celebrities to try & increase their sales but as soon as a celebrity does something that may affect their profits they dump them immediately. They do not believe in free speech & are as evil as the chinese regime itself.

China's relied efforts propaganda makes me sick. They waited a week to even go into some towns! Too little too late!!

I've heard that one but not the apology(news to me). It makes me think of Cotillard's comments about 9/11 right after winning her Oscar for Piaf. (or something along those lines). W/ever

I’m no expert but I believe karma must be related to human behavior not natural disasters. But either way could someone ask Sharon Stone what all the poor, suffering people in Africa did to deserve their karmic retribution. Because whatever they did it must have been bad.

It seems the Tibetan people can go to hell as far as Ms. Stone is concerned as soon as her lucrative Dior contract is in danger.

In millions of earthquake victims ,there will be some bad some very bad,some good ,some very good ,some excellent ,some innocent people,innocent children...so how "karma" will explain all these cases?When people are down ,desperate,devastated by natural disasters,you just don't talk about"karma" in public ,something you have no clue of its actions,its behaviours. Stone is Stone ,an actress no more or less ,why Chinese government should be angry at an individual opinion ?

Looking at the definition of 'Karma' i do not find her comment offensive to the extent that she has to apologize, now if her contract with Dior is terminated, that also may be due to her Karama.

why Chinese government should be angry at an individual opinion?

Because it is touchy, selfish and hypocrite. Look how it (china) cares for it's quake victims efficiently but it paralised the UNSC from responding to Burmese junta's barbaric blockage on cyclone relief efforts there. It certainly is "not investing on good karma". It will reap what it sow.

Can't have Westerners - Americans in particular - saying out loud what tens or hundreds of millions of Chinese themselves privately believe:

fingerless ..

It's seems you're just another drone repeating the same propoganda, do you really know what is happening in Tibet ? or are you just ignorant of the real living standards and conditions ijn Tibet ?

DO you know that Tibetans have a caste system loike India which in the past has been more repressive to its own citizens until the Chinese came along to do away with it.. If the DL really cared for his own people he would engage in dialogue with the Chinese Authorities..

Remarkable that Sharon Stone is the only one who has to apologize for saying what a great many people, including all those who genuinely feel sorry for the victims of the earthquake, have thought even momentarily in the back of their minds. True, it's crude and it was better for her to apologize than destroy all chances of future income. Of course Chinese media are typically ridiculous: "The official Xinhua News Agency said in a commentary Thursday she was the “public enemy of all mankind.” I guess Sharon can share the title with the Dalai Lama.

Why "bad karma" like this earthquake did not go straight to PLA(the ones who shoot and kill Tibetans),Chinese officials(who ordered the oppression in Tibet) but to ordinary men women children in Sichuan regions?Why no "karma" for those Burmese generals but only for millions of ordinary people in Burma? What about Asian Tsunami victims a few years ago,what sort of karma was that?In natural disasters ,if you can help,HELP! ...and leave all those "karma" things to God.

Well, I didn't think that the Indian subcontinent tectonic plate continuing to plunge into South Asia in addition to a lack of building-code "enforcement" in southwest China necessarily qualified as "bad (Tibet-related) karma" in the first place, though one can say that the decision to build hydro-electric dams on tectonically unstable land and build flimsily constructed school buildings in Sichuan (as well as Tibet?) has come back to bite the PRC in the behind... I really do want to find out what the damage/casualty count might be in (what's left of) Tibet, though, since the quake happened on the border. Another PRC/Xinhua/CCTV news blackout?

People are people..almost 70.000 people dead... Karma talk is way beyond stupidnes.I hope she can do something in action instead of just "apology".
