Jessica Alba has taken to her Celebrity MySpace blog to defend herself over accusations made by Bill O'Reilly and TMZ.com that she is dumb.When a reporter approached her at an inauguration event last week, she tried to turn the tables on him by asking him what Barack Obama's greatest characteristic was. When the reporter said he felt uncomfortable answering because he is a journalist, Alba replied, "be neutral - be Sweden about it."
TMZ.com later called her a "ditz" and an "arrogant buffoon" for saying Sweden instead of Switzerland when referring to the neutral country during WWII.O'Reilly - whom Alba had called an "a-hole" at the same event - also called her "misguided" for mixing up the countries.
Upon checking via Wikipedia, here is the result...
The policy of Sweden during World War II was to remain neutral. Swedish neutrality had been the policy for more than a century, since the end of the Napoleonic Wars. However, official "policy" and actions have often been at odds. Since the time of the Napoleonic Wars, Sweden has not initiated any direct armed combat. However, Sweden's military and government have been involved in major "peacekeeping actions" and other military support functions.
So, what do you all think?
Was it Jessica Alba's slip of a tongue and she is now trying to justify the matter?
Shouldn't one always refer to current situation and apply as a form of justification?
