Sharon Stone Calls Chinese Earthquake "Karma"

5/26/2008 3:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When is a natural disaster a good thing? When the afflicted country commits human rights violations -- at least according to Sharon Stone.


Stone gave an interview while on the red carpet at Cannes this weekend in which -- after recounting all of China's atrocities -- she wondered, "All these earthquake and stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that karma?' When you are not nice that bad things happen to you." My name is Sharon!

Sharon went on to say she has come around and no longer thinks the death of over 60,000 people is cosmic payback. "Basic Instinct 2" is a whole other story.

I personally don't care much for Sharon Stone, but on this she was just voicing her opinion, China has done many atrocities over the years I wondered the same thing myself.

This is an ignorant and flakey statement, even coming from Sharon Stone. Basically she is saying that because of what the Chinese government had done that has led to human rights violations on their own citizens. It means that the same people that have been affected by these policies should deserve to lose their homes, their loved ones especially majority of them children, and their ways to earn a living? What a hypocrite she is... hosting fancy fund raisers drinking champagne for the sake of saving lives while being self-righteous and suggesting that babies and all deserved to be crushed to death...

The 1556 China earthquake is believed to have killed 830,000 so maybe the Chinese rulers are much nicer than they used to be, and therefore only get 1/10 as much bad karma.
Actually, I believe the earthquakes in China are karma for human right abuses as much as I believe Hurricane Katrina was karma for some U.S. states allowing gay marriage; in other words not at all.

What a stupid thing to say, just because the government of China might be evil doesn't mean the people are. Look at America, we have evil people in charge, it's not like the people can do a damn thing about it. Speak out against the government and wind up at the bottom of the ocean or in a wood chipper. Dumb rich bitch.

Oooooooooo bad choice of words there... but I will agree with her that China is ridiculously cruel nation. I can't abide the place nor the people for some of the things they do and believe in. JMO.

#35 (Lazy Losers): You're right, actually. I am one who posted before watching the clip. She WAS actually saying she harbored unkind thoughts and then was shamed by the very group of people who have been the most ostracized and persecuted by their government (the Tibetans). She was saying if they, of all people, can forgive and ask for help for the Chinese govt. then perhaps she and others should put personal feelings aside and help out. The message was fairly obvious.

I think she is just saying that she DID have feelings like this, but that when she found out the Tabetins (WHO SHOULD HATE THE CHINESE) were willing to help that it was humbling to her and that she learned a lesson from it. Maybe she just got her words mixed up a little bit. Give the woman a break!!

What a stupid comment. I can't stand her. She is too full of herself and always has been.
