It’s always so awkward when you go to the birthday party of someone you don’t know, and then you find out they are a Chechen leader accused of horrible human rights violations? Makes you wish you stayed home with good old Netflix Instant instead. Earlier today Hilary Swank apologized over Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov’s birthday concert, which the New Year’s Eve actress attended earlier this month. Controversial figure Kardyrov has been accused of a range of offenses from abduction to murder, in addition to making us never want to watch Million Dollar Baby ever again.
In addition to Swank, Kadyrov party was attended by Jean Claude Van Damme and a host of Russian celebrities. “I deeply regret attending this event,” Hilary, who reportedly did not know who the concert was for, said in a statement. “If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be, I would never have gone.” Unfortunately for her P.R. people, Hilary simply loves to party all the time. Party all the time. Party all the tiiiiiiiiime.
