While I agree that a public apology was the only course of action after Stone’s well-intentioned but inflammatory comments, the Chinese reaction was a bit harsh. Dior is taking her out of all advertisements in China. Would the Chinese people really boycott their products if Dior did not make this move? Even after Stone apologized and promised to help with quake relief work? I know the whole incident must have been deeply painful for certain people, but we all get hurt a little sometimes. We all make mistakes. Can we focus, instead, on the cooperation and friendship that has grown from the quake relief? Isn’t that still news?
