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."
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?
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?
