Cameo leaves this weekend for her humanitarian stint in the mountainous ridges of Peru, where she will be volunteering at an orphanage in Machu Picchu for a couple of weeks.
Cam Diaz recently got into a world of shit here in this ancient Incan city for carrying a handbag scribbled with some offensive Chinese slogan. Diaz probably thought the bag said something Confucius-y, but it actually said “Serve the People” a Maoist slogan. This ringing endorsement of Communist China and Mao Zedong didn’t go over so well in Peru, where a Maoist insurgency in the 80s and early 90s resulted in 70,000 brutal deaths.
Luckily, Cameo is unlikely to get into trouble for her fashion choices as her trip is not one of recreation and photo ops but altruism, long pants and closed-toe shoes. This is sure to be a life-altering, as well as fulfilling adventure for her. My only worry is the locals will confuse Cameo for Sandra Bullock and she’ll end up getting all the credit. Back off, Sandy.
Wish her well today.
