Stoned!

| Filed under: Legal MattersSharon Stone

We're all up for a good laugh, but this one is just a bit too ridiculous.

Sharon Stone was just recently served with legal papers demanding $1 billion!

The suit comes from more than 1,000 Chinese earthquake victims and a New York attorney.

The documents announce attorney Ming Hai's intention to sue Stone for "harming Chinese people when she suggested the catastrophic quake last May was "karma" for the regime's occupation of Tibet."

WTF?!?

Ok, Hai is just a bit out of it. We understand no-named attorneys trying to get publicity by suing a celebrity, but this is just stoopid.

Hai wrote, "For the families who have lost their loved ones or lost limbs or suffered severe injuries, your … statement and act has caused extreme emotional distress."

Yea, and what's going to happen with the money? Is Hai going to go to China and distribute it all?

Puh-lease.

Stone's apologized several times already. Who can blame her? She's just an idiot.

Her original remarks were "I'm not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And then all this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and I thought, is that karma — when you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

Time to get over it. She mispoke. She's apologized several times. She's been banned from China's International Film Festival in Shanghai, she was dropped from Dior's ads.

And now you want her to pay up?

What do U think?

Publicity stunt from the attorney, or should Sharon really be forced to pay?

    she did NOT mis-speak and i abso-fucking-loutely agree with what she said. it WAS karma, anyone who knows an ounce of what china has done to tibet KNOWS it was karma.

    FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Her statement did not amount to defamation or any other tort action and therefore there is no cause of action. A statement merely causing severe emotional distress is not enough to be sued over.

  15. nicol says – reply to this


    15

    she didn't "misspeak"… and she shouldn't have to apologize. its called freedom of speech and its ridiculous that you have to apologize for your opinions nowadays…..

  16. rIZ says – reply to this


    16

    Are you serious with this shit?? I mean c'mon? People can be sued for ridiculous statements? The lawsuits would never end!!!

    She shouldn't have to pay a dime for what she says. In the good ol US of A, you can say whatever the hell you want to say. You won't have to pay any money for it, you'll just be deemed a moron.

    we americans have a little privilege called Freedom of Speech ……. she is allowed you say what she wants. And corporations are allowed to drop her. But she can't get sued for it.

    Publicity Stunt!!!! those 1000 chinese people probably don't even know who Sharon Stone is!! Seriously, who cares!



  25. 25

    thats a waste of time and money



  26. 26

    She shouldn't have to pay shit. These people are just trying to get easy money and publicity. I guess they are becoming more like Americans. And last time I checked, Sharon Stone hasn't had a good movie since I was born 28 years ago or so, so I highly doubt she has one billion dollars. Perhaps they got the idea after watching Austin Powers??



  27. 27

    Let it go already!! She messed up and she apologized!! Move one!!

  28. Ash13 says – reply to this


    28

    Dose she even have a BILLION dollers?



  29. 29

    i agree thats just ridiculous. im sure TONS of people say shit like that but she got recorded so now she owes 1 billion dollars? please

  30. G2kr says – reply to this


    30

    She didn't say anything wrong in the first place! I'm sure many more than her said this exact same thing. I mean, come on, they tried to take out our kids and pets, yeah I believe in kharma…………so sue me! Buncha ass wipes!

  31. STUNN says – reply to this


    31

    I agree with what she said in the first place!!
    I can't believe the Chinese made this move…I'm embarrassed for them!! LOL

    As a law student, I'm not afraid to say it's frightening how litigious our society has become. Any self-respecting half-intelligent judge would throw this case out immediately. Most suits that are based on emotional distress alone usually don't pan out. It usually only works if there was physical abuse + the emotional distress.

    What's next, suing people for hurting your feelings? Pathetic.

    With such censorship in China, have the victims even seen her comments? Can they watch American television? Probably not, unless the government eventually distributed the info. $1 billion?? This must be a joke.

  48. larry says – reply to this


    48

    SHE DIDN'T EVEN SAY IT WAS KARMA! She said she asked herself if it was karma. And I completely agree with her on the Tibet issue. Hai is RIDICULOUS for thinking she should pay 1 Billion dollars for having a thought. See, Hai, in our country… we have this little thing called freedom of speech.

    People will sue for anything these days. I dont think she owes them anything. People talk shit on me all the time and I dont get to go around sueing them all.

    I feel aweful that people were injured or killed in the Chinese earthquake however the world needs to take note . . . the Chinese have us by the balls and they are pulling and pulling. At this point the Chinese have the power to bankrupt the U.S.A.

    51

    If Stone didn't have her tail between her legs because of all of the political correctness in this country, she would go after this attorney for filing a frivolous lawsuit and demand that he pay her legal fees associated with the case. This case will be summarily dismissed but that should still be worth a few grand to her. Why not make the lawyer pay so he realizes the error of his ways?

    …Besides, it's not like all "those people" even understood what she said. There are plenty of Chinese in US that don't speak a word of English…. I'm sure there are even less in China itself….

    Thats is completely ridiculous!

  57. Amand says – reply to this


    57

    why is it that if you are famous you give up your right to freedom of speech? sharon stone is entitled to say whatever the fuck she feels like… you can't sue somebody cause they hurt your feelings with their opinion. this lawsuit is retarded.

    That is the most ridiculous lawsuit ever. She can say whatever the hell she wants to say. Too fucking bad if it hurt their feelings. Get over it. Lots of people have said shitty things about her and I don't see her suing all of them, like Perez calling her and idiot above. Lately Perez, you've been an idiot! So take me to court. Just fucking stupid.

    i guess it just goes to show how lucky we americans are for having the liberty of freedom of speech. obviously, in china, they view opinions as cause for a billion dollar law suit??? come on…

    Hai should be disbarred. That is what you call a frivolous suit. But that isn't going to happen. He should personally pay all court and legal costs.

    Well at the time who had time to see tv and see what actresses were talking about??? They probably didn't even hear about it over where the earthquake happened. Like you say get over her remarks. Freedom of speech!!!!

    It'll get thrown out of court. First amendment and all that freedom of speech thing.. Even if those were her exact words then she was posing a question not stating a fact. If she had said "it is karma" then that may have been offensive, but she said "is that karma?" People are so money hungry these days, go out and get a f*cking job and stop trying to take money from those who've earned theirs!!!! You Americans are especially sue happy, you don't find that in many countries.

    If this were to make any sense at all, then let us extrapoloate all this suing nonsense furhter. Victims of genocide in Darfur should sue the Chinese government for helping fund Sudanese military operations!!
    I have never had a problem with what Sharon Stone said. The people of Tibet have long been oppresed by the Chinese governement. She was not saying that Chinese people deserved to die in the earthquake. She was saying that the Chinese need to realize that they do cause other people pain and that their own experience with the earthquake should teach them some empathy to wards the suffering of people in other nations, such as Tibet. Were I Sharon Stone, I would never have apologized for my statement. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The whole world was concernd when the earthquake happened. Is Chine concerned about the people of Tibet? NO. They are not.

    I can picture this lawyer sitting around and thinking, "damages, hmmmm, how much, oh yea, ONE BILLION DOLLARS, muuahahaha." He has seen too many Powers reruns on TBS I guess.

    85

    uhhhh its her right of freedom of speech to say whatever she wants. she didnt verbally abuse them she stated an opinion and it was more of a question really than an opinion. if she has to pay i would say thats extremellyyy dumb. karma IS a bitch.

  86. Eliza says – reply to this


    86

    this is completely insane to me…. how many times do celebrities or even normal people for that matter, make statements outloud without thinking about the way it comes out… I highly doubt she meant anything by what she said, some people are just THAT freakin dumb…

    I do think this lawyer is definitely just doing this for the recognition….

    This is on the same level as the guy that sued the dry cleaners millions for his pants. The bottom line is that Sharon Stone is a citizen of the United States and not China. She is accountable for upholding our laws, not those of another country. Freedom of speech is allowed in the U.S.. What she said may have been hurtful, but it was not physically harmful to another person.

  92. sara says – reply to this


    92

    I may not like what she said, but you can't deny her or anyone else's right to FREE SPEECH. and you certainly can't sue based on the fact that something someone said hurts your feelings. She was wrong to say what she did, but in America, she can be wrong all day long without those reprecussions.

    What a joke! There is so much bad shit going on in China - those assholes abuse thier animals for one and because of a stupid one child law they have, these assholes go around stealing children to sell to other asshole Chinese families who buy them with no problem…then there is the whole pollution issue they have over there - are they really that worried about what an aging American celebrity has to say about thier pathetic country - and the New York attorney who is representing them is an even bigger asshole for representing a country full of assholes!
