Cameon Diaz: "I'm Too Stupid To Know What I'm Buying"

Okay, so she's ugly, and she's stupid....

Actress Diaz apologises for Mao bag

US actress Cameron Diaz has apologised for wearing a bag with a political slogan that evoked painful memories in Peru.

The voice of Princess Fiona in the animated Shrek films visited the Incan city of Machu Picchu in Peru's Andes wearing an olive green bag emblazoned with a red star and the words "Serve the People", perhaps Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong's most famous political slogan, printed in Chinese.

The bags are marketed as fashion accessories in some cities around the world, but in Peru the slogan evokes memories of the Maoist Shining Path insurgency that fought the government in the 1980s and early 1990s in a bloody conflict that left nearly 70,000 people dead.

"I sincerely apologise to anyone I may have inadvertently offended," Diaz said in a statement. "The bag was a purchase I made as a tourist in China and I did not realise the potentially hurtful nature of the slogan printed on it."
I'm sure that Che Guevara shirt is just a fashion statement, too. Y'know, if we educated people about history instead of indoctrinating grade school and college kids to worship the environment and feel good about themselves, we might still have people around who can make a judgment call here and there.

The ugly part, well, education isn't going to help that. Too much.

She probably is that galactically stupid to not know what it meant. Which is just sad.

And for God's sake Diaz... eat a hamburger once in a while... you look like a freakin skeleton.

In fairness, it is true that the young are often, ahhhhh.... clueless.

There is no excuse for oldsters who are equally clueless, though.
