Dear Cameron Diaz,

The next time you're in a country to "participate in a television show that celebrates Peru's culture," make sure you learn a little about the culture before you show up. Like learning that your Chairman Mao purse might tick the locals off, you know, since the Shining Path spent a decade killing Peruvians. And when you apologize with "The bag was a purchase I made as a tourist in China and I did not realize the potentially hurtful nature of the slogan printed on it," you reveal just what a dumbass you are. If you can't understand the hurtful nature of Mao Zedong, you really need to get a clue.

Gee do you know written Chinese, I know damned well I don't and I also know if told the characters were say an expression of good luck, I would tend to take the seller of the goods @ face value, but then again you are so frigging superior to the rest of us.

I don't imagine Cameron Diaz was walking around China alone, without some sort of interpreter, but let's assume for a moment she was. Let's assume she saw the pretty red star and just thought the bag was cute. If that's the case, her statement to the media should've been "I had no idea when I bought this bag that it was related to Mao Zedong. I am horrified that I made such a mistake and will be throwing the bag away." That's the only acceptable response when you find out you accidentally bought a bag that honors a guy whose policies cost millions of lives. Instead her message was this: "Sorry I offended you, Peru. I'll put the bag away until I get back to L.A., where it's considered cool." That's heinous.
Yes, I am indeed superior to a person who knowingly owns a Mao Zedong bag.

She is an idiot on all fronts. Let us not forget her frequent reminders to be conservative with energy, only to be driven in limos, and flown all over the place for premiers in jets.

I am glad I do not live in LA, if that is considered cool.

Let us all remember that her stylist probably dressed her. My guess is the stylist has been fired.

Because brilliant film actresses who are best known for having used bodily substance as her gel, cannot be bothered to dress themselves.

maybe next time she visits Israel, she will sport a nazi emblazoned bag?

Sometimes I wish I had armywifetoddlermom's gift of sharp retort.

She totally nailed that one.
