Looks like Stone has apologized after Dior kicked her out of their campaign:

French fashion house Christian Dior said Thursday it has dropped Sharon Stone from its Chinese ads and released a statement from the actress apologizing for saying China’s earthquake may have been bad karma for its treatment of Tibet.

The 50-year-old actress said she was “deeply sorry” for causing anguish and anger among Chinese people wwhen you’re not nice that the bad things happen to you?”ith her remarks in an interview last week. Stone models for Christian Dior SA, and the company’s Shanghai office issued the statement.
