LATEST: Sharon Stone has been shunned by a Chinese film festival after she made insensitive remarks about the country's recent earthquake.
The Basic Instinct star was forced to apologise after she stunned journalists at last month's (May08) Cannes International Film Festival in France by suggesting the disaster was the result of "bad karma".
Stone linked the tragedy, which killed more than 67,000 people, to China's treatment of Tibetans, saying: "All these earthquakes and stuff happened and I thought, 'Is that karma?' When you are not nice, bad things happen to you."
The comments led to Chinese officials calling for a boycott of all her upcoming film projects, and now Stone has been told she is not welcome at the country's Shanghai Film Festival, which begins on Wednesday (04Jun08).
Stone attended last year's (07) event as the ambassador for French design house Christian Dior. However, protests in China have led to advertisements featuring the actress being taken down.
