Sharon Stoned, Donuts Dunked, Whites Whacked, Coors Coursed


-Dior has dumped Sharon Stone as spokesperson for comments she made about China while at Cannes: "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 the earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

- Psst. "Dunkin' Donuts is one of our sponsors."

- New York's tourist campaign has been dubbed too white and misrepresents the ethnic make up of the city.

- That Coors Light Perfect Pour dude is back with even more goofy pour stunts that, so totally unbelievable.

Stone's observation seems pretty accurate, especially when compared to recent remarks from Rev Wright, Pat Robertson and other religious nut jobs that seemed much more mean-spirited in their attacks on U.S.

The lesson: You have to be officially associated with a religion to spout these observations and you must keep your karmic judgements to the U.S.

I think she got carried away with the media's "beat on China" can always count on her to say/do the most inappopriate things!

Stone's observation, posed as a question, seemed innocent compared to the ravings of Rev. Wright, Pat Robertson and other religious wack jobs.

The lesson: If you want to spout trash about a nation you must be officially affiliated with a religion and you must bash the U.S. as a racist or gay-loving cesspool.

Being friends with the dali Lama doesn't count.

Re: the perfect pour spot. I have never seen such a transparent example of old codgers trying to write a "viral" that will appeal to the bros and dudes of America.

Crapity crap crap.
