Yeeeah, so things seem to be going well for the Jolie-Pitts in India, eh? This week while filming a schoolhouse scene for A Mighty Heart, chaos broke loose (pictures to the side), resulting in a few injuries and some incarcerated Jolie-Pitt bodyguards. Today, Angelina responded to the allegations against her bodyguards. People reports:

Following the arrest of three of Angelina Jolie's bodyguards for allegedly roughing up parents at a school in India, the actress has spoken out about the incident.

"It is not surprising that the press involved failed to mention their share of the responsibility in the chaos," Jolie said in a statement.

According to Reuters, Indian police detained three of the actress's bodyguards on Friday after parents complained the men had manhandled them and their children at an Islamic school in Mumbai where Jolie was filming a scene for A Mighty Heart.

Mohammed Yusuf Patni, general secretary of the Anjuman-e-Islam school's Parent Teacher Association, told the Associated Press, "This Jolie's bodyguard called one parent, 'You bloody Indian.' "

In her statement, Jolie said, "As for this horrible rumor that someone referred to a local man as a 'bloody Indian,' let me say this: I would never work with anyone that was derogatory towards another man's race. My family is of mixed race."

To accompany this, here are a couple of pictures of Brad Pitt going into the Mumbai Police Commissioner's office. Because he's purty.
