Dropping Stones: Clothing Designer Christian Dior, Drops Actress Sharon Stone from Ad Campaign in China
Sharon Stone has been under scrutiny after insinuating the devastating earthquake in China, was a sort of karmic retribution for the countries malevolent treatment of the people of Tibet. Sharon misspoke,while speaking to a Chinese press in Cannes, setting off a chain of events, one of which, involved the pulling of her Christian Dior campaign, from being advertsied in China.
The bulk of the nation habitually perceives American as ingenuous, and infantile in nature,in comparison to other developed nations. This ideology in part, has a lot to do with our position as a global power, and our ornate foreign policy. Let’s all become more of a global race, and grasp the contention that when a cataclysm, like China’s earthquake transpires, it’s not China’s issue–it’s a all-inclusive event, that should not cast condemnation on a county for thier own relief efforts.
One word– Katrina. The refusal of foreign aid, after Hurricane Katrina is pretty lucid evidence of yet another Katrina failure by the Bush administration. CREW director stated “It’s clear that they’re trying to hide their ineptitude, incompetence and malfeasance.”
“Allies offered $854 million in cash and in oil that was to be sold for cash. But only $40 million has been used so far for disaster victims or reconstruction, according to U.S. officials and contractors. Most of the aid went uncollected, including $400 million worth of oil. Some offers were withdrawn or redirected to private groups such as the Red Cross. The rest has been delayed by red tape and bureaucratic limits on how it can be spent.”
So, we can all regard with contempt the relief efforts of Myanmar and China, but many Americans, like influential actresses, will never be able to realize the unscrupulousness manifesting under their own noses.
