Dior Drops Spokeswhore Stone for Karmic Comment

While at Cannes, Sharon Stone said the following:

“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. And then the earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?”

Yeah, sure thing Sharon. Why were you at Cannes anyway?

Nevermind that &#151 but the result of her remarks was Dior saying buh-bye. Tom Bernadin of Leo Burnett put it like so:

“What comes through in this is the importance of the Chinese market to foreign brands. Being successful in China, like anywhere else, means being sensitive to local conditions.”

Does anyone remember when Fred Phelps said 9/11 was the result of homosexuality? Did Stone completely forget about the thousands of innocent non-governmental people who lost everything…way to go salope.
