Cameron Diaz has apologized for carrying around a purse that irked many of the locals when she visited Peru's Machu Picchu on Friday. The fugly bag had a star and the words "Serve the People" in Chinese. The slogan comes from the late Communist leader Mao Zedong who an insurgency in the 80s in Peru which left nearly 70,000 people dead.
Cameron said in a statement, "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."
The funny thing is that I'm sure she had some sort of tour guide that probably knew what that bag meant and wanted to eff that bitch up! I'm also loving celebrity statement lately. You know they don't even look at that shit let alone write it.
