Hilary Swank, this Chechen birthday party scandal came out of nowhere! Almost as surprising as, say, hearing Justin Bieber get busted for international espionage, Entertainment Weekly reports that the New Year’s Eve star got dropped by her PR team 42West after attending festivities honoring alleged human rights violator Ramzan Kadyrov earlier this month. This news is almost as shocking as when Hilary momentarily tried to have a rom-com career. Did anyone actually see P.S. I Love You? Anyone at all?
The company reportedly dumped Swank after the two parties disagreed on how to handle the fallout of the birthday scandal, which involved Hilary accepting money to speak at the leader’s shindig. The Academy Award-winner also reportedly fired her manager Jason Weinberg over the controversy, in addition to promising to donate her speaking fee to charity. Wow. Who knew that, when Hilary isn’t playing tough characters with extremely defined jawlines, she’s a seriously trouble starter. You might as well have told us Swank was involved in a steroid scandal or something. No, don’t tell us! We don’t want to know!
