Cameron Diaz apologized for wearing in Peru that olive green bag emblazoned with a red star and the the Mao slogan “Serve the People”. The AP report noted that “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.”

It’s pretty funny that she picked one of the only non-commie/non pro-commie Latin-American countries to wear a commie bag in. Almost anywhere else south of the border, it wouldn’t have caused much of a stir. This was her apology: “I sincerely apologize to anyone I may have inadvertently offended. 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.”

Excuse me?

It was just a “purchase as a tourist — in China”? And…she didn’t know that China is a communist totalitarian country? It takes a world traveler to be this dumb.
