CHRISTIAN DIOR AXES SEXY SHARON STONE

Sexy Hollywood star Sharon Stone has suffered another blow after her comments following China’s recent earthquake. The French fashion house Christian Dior has axed her promotional posters in the country.Stone has come under attack from officials in China for suggesting the country’s recent earthquake was caused by "karma" - and a leading movie chain has already threatened to ban all her films. But now head bosses at Christian Dior have banned adverts featuring the star in China. A spokesman at the company’s Shanghai headquarters said, "We don’t agree with her hasty, unreflected remarks and we deeply regret them."Dior was one of the first international brands to enter China and has won the affection and respect of the consuming public. We absolutely do not support any remark that hurts the Chinese people’s feelings." Meanwhile, Stone herself has apologized for the interview. She said in a statement: "Due to my inappropriate words and acts during the interview, I feel deeply sorry and sad about hurting Chinese people."I am willing to take part in the relief work of China’s earthquake, and wholly devote myself to helping affected Chinese people." The outspoken actress was talking to a Chinese media outlet on Thursday, when she linked the recent disaster, which left more than 67,000 people dead, to China’s recent treatment of Tibetans.
