I’m sure Hilary Swank knows how the internet works, right?
Hilary says she “deeply regrets” visiting a concert held on the Kremlin-backed Chechen leader’s birthday, that she was unaware of his abductions, extrajudicial killings and other grave abuses.
Swank issued a statement saying, “I deeply regret attending this event. If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be, I would never have gone.”
Hilary Swank… meet the internet.
Hilary gave a speech at the event, which included a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to the President.
When someone on stage asked how Hilary knew it was Ramzan Kadyrov‘s birthday, she replied, “I read … I do my research.”
