Jennifer Lopez
made a quick buck Saturday putting on a show for one of the world's most repressive leaders ... but it might not have been worth it considering the s**t storm she's in now. 

J.Lo's being blasted for putting on a special birthday concert in Avasa for the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow -- complete with a serenade of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President".

The reason being -- Gurbanguly's notorious for the widespread human rights abuses in his country: extreme censorship, ethnic repression, utilizing torture etc. Human Rights Watch considers Turkmenistan's gov one of the most repressive in the world.

A rep for J.Lo went straight into damage control today, hoping to take heat off the singer, explaining, "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."

Do celebs not get Google?

Previous comments suggested that Karma will punish JLo far more than ever imagined. It best she divorce herself from those ill gotten gains, pronto. And yes, donate every last dollar and then match it with her own money, given to specific human rights organizations dealing in that very same country. Otherwise, the transgression she has made will take a horrible toll. Personally, I can't bear to watch Karma's revenge. She has so much to lose, it will be devastating.

In the King James version of the Holy Bible, Proverbs 16:18 warns that "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall."

The pride in this verse is the type of arrogance... that leads to destruction. The pride of men that makes them think they are better than their fellow human beings, the pride that causes men to think they do not have to follow rules, respect others, themselves or God.

Its a warning. Pride comes before Destruction... and a haughty (scornful, condesendingly proud) spirit, before the fall.
