It is very easy and simple to simply call it karma when something bad or any natural disaster happen. Human beings  prefer to package unsavory experiences in neat little packages. Being a celebrity does not mean that they are infallible. One has to really understand the working of karma before one can pull 'karma' out of the bag. Karma can be good and can be bad. What may seem bad may be good and what may seem good may be bad. It's complicated.

Whatever it is we have to have understanding, ethics and compassion, the foundation of of Buddhist practice before one starts pointing fingers.
