(Newser) – Sharon Stone might consider leaving international politics and the mysteries of the universe alone. The outspoken activist actress raised eyebrows on a Cannes red carpet last week when, during an on-air interview, she suggested that the Chinese earthquake that is believed to have killed 67,000 might have resulted from "karma" in Tibet, People reports. 

"At first, I am not happy about the ways the Chinese were treating the Tibetans," she started, referring to the alleged human rights violations. "And then all this earthquake and stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that Karma, when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?'"
