Will Cameron Diaz Adopt A Peruvian, Or Peru?

by | 25th, June 2007

CAMEROAN Diaz, the Hollywood actress, has been to Peru. She visited Machu Picchu.

She sported a green bag which had a red star on and the words “serve the people” printed in Chinese. The slogan evokes memories of the Maoist Shining Path movement which battled the Government in the 1980s and early 1990s. The fighting left nearly 70,000 people dead.

Says Diaz:

“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…”I’m sorry for any people’s pain and suffering and it was certainly never my intention to reopen what I now know is a painful wound in this country’s history.”

Time for a visit to the orphange…
