Actress sparks backlash after claiming earthquake was payback for Chinese treatment of Tibetans
‘I’m not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else,’ she said.
‘Then this earthquake happened and I thought: “Is that karma?” When you’re not nice, that’s when the bad things happen to you.’
Ng See-Yuen, founder of the UME Cineplex chain, says his theatres will not screen any of her movies in future.
The earthquake struck south-west China on 12 May, leaving 68,109 people dead, reports the BBC.
