Sharon Stone has apologized for remarks suggesting bad "karma" for China's treatment of Tibet could have caused the Sichuan earthquake, AP reports. The apology came in a statement released through fashion company Christian Dior, which has dropped Stone from its Chinese ads. Stone's remarks caused widespread fury in China, with the state-controlled news agency calling her the "public enemy of all mankind."
"Due to my inappropriate words and acts during the interview, I feel deeply sorry and sad about hurting Chinese people," said Stone's statement. "I am willing to take part in the relief work of China's earthquake, and wholly devote myself to helping affected Chinese people."
