China Shows Sharon What Karma Really Is

5/28/2008 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like the Chinese will have to live without Sharon Stone's "Sliver" for a while: The biggest movie chain in China says it's banning her flicks from its screens after she called the horrific earthquakes there "karma" for past abuses.

Ng See-Yuen, head of the UME Cineplex chain, tells the Hollywood Reporter that Stone's ridiculous remarks were "inappropriate" and that actors should not bring personal politics to such a disaster that's killed tens of thousands and left 5 million homeless.

No word on whether the absence of "Last Action Hero" will cause widespread rioting in the streets of Beijing.

Holy crap, when did Sharon Stone start sounding like Anne Coulter? I don't see what the deaths of innocent civilians has anything to do with their government's policies or actions?!

Banning Stone shouldn't be a huge loss for the Chinese people, I don't know why anyone would willingly sit through "Basic Instinct 2" if they had any choice in the matter.

To TMZ staff, it is "their", not "there". (number 11, already pointed this out) I am sorry for your crappy public school education, you should probably vote for someone who is strong on education so your kids at least have some hope.

Sharon should have submitted her remarks to the Beijing speech police for approval.

Report this! Sharon Stone is a genius. Just ask her. She's a member of Mensa and estimates her Intelligence Quotient at 154. You don't think she's reached the level of success in Hollywood on her good looks alone, do you? She's also go snapping gyro.

You gotta laugh at China though. Someone uses their freedom of speech to point out that China consistently violates human rights and their response is to ban her. LOL. God, the irony! That's like calling someone a big baby and to show how they disagree, they call you a big doody head.

I believe that when she stated that she cried it was not only because the Tibetin people are so forgiving. I think she relized that it wasn't right to pass judgment on why things happen.

Sharon Stone, So shocked to see you described this terrible nature disaster which caused nearly 70,000.00 died and millions homeless as interesting! Just remember this could happen to you! I cried everyday when watching the tv, especially for those young children who lost their lives. It is really a big mistake for you to be a human being in this world, seems that some kind of cold blood animals like snake will be more appropriate for you. Please respect life! Please behave yourself!

Jesus people - no wonder Americans get such a bad name! I am not shocked that Dar Stone thinks of this as cosmic punishment; she's not the brightest bulb on the tree. But I'm shocked that so many TMZers think so! There's not a country on earth that hasn't done horrible things to their own people and the world. Since when are moving tectonic plates, which shift on a regluar basis, a retribution from above? Maybe all of you had better sit under a pyramid and keep on readin' your bibles, b/c your dissing on this horrible tragedy (and it is a tragedy no matter what government is involved) is now going to come karma-ing back in your direction. So holy rollers, keep on a prayin' cause your time is at hand.

JEF:I can belive there is someone like you actually live on the planet. Pull out your business from china? Are you out of you mind? or you have the same BRAIN as that Sharon trash. Be realistic, you could right now stop all the business in china, and you will live happily ever after? come on, stop dreaming. You are definitely suffer.Chinese are hypocrites? Come on, there are hypocrites everywhere in the world. At least Chinese goverment did something after the disaster, what did American goverment do after the hurricane? I am sure most American people are not like you, they have heart, they are wise and open-minded.
You know what, JEF, you can just kiss the Chinese's @ss. A Chinese in Shijiazhuang.
