Hilary Swank

Reportedly Axed By PR Team

Over Chechnya Debacle

11/4/2011 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hilary Swank
Ya hang out with one blood-thirsty warlord ... and your whole life falls apart ... so seems to be the story with Hilary Swank.

The 2-time Oscar winner was dropped by her publicity team at the fancy 42West public relations company over a disagreement on how best to handle the mess caused by her appearance at a birthday party for Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov last month ... this according to EW.com.

As TMZ previously reported, Swank gave a big 'ol speech at the Oct. 5 event ... bragging about how she did her "research" about the president before she hit the stage that night. 

After the media pointed out that Kadyrov has been accused of participating in scores of bad things ... including the brutal murders of his political rivals ... she reportedly fired her manager and released a statement saying, "If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be ... I would never have gone."

Celebs get into bed with murdering swine for money!
They think there are no consequences and can do anything they want.
Hey celebs!
Stay away from mass murderers + ordinary murders like Casey Anthony + pretty girl Amanda Fox!

Apparently her "research" wasn't good enough. Maybe celebs should attend birthday parties of people they actually know.

You live by politics in Hollywood -- every movie she has ever made is a major political statement -- you die by politics in Hollywood.

"If I had..." ... Well, you could have had, if you only would be a not so self centered, brainless little princess. REAL live is more than a red carpet, at least for some people like the victims of Mr. Kadyrov.

Wow. I never thought that Hillary Swank, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardashian would ever share the same stupid gene.

Operation Dumbo. She's done--as in a cake done. Beyonce, Mariah, they all get a pass for their Gadaffi singing and dancing. Sometimes skin color does get you a free pass as it did them. Swank, sorry, doesnt work for white folk. You're already expected to be smarter than that. Beyonce and Mariah just a singing and dancing away now---meanwhile Hillary will be finished. Guess you should have gone with them to sing and dance for Gaddafi. Hillary.

The PR team AND Hilary are all to blame, no one bothered to check the background of this guy. Don't any of them own computers? I'm sure they all just saw the payday and didn't think it mattered. Not only did she attend, but she spoke, oh well..."Girls" Don't Cry. Firing people over something like this just means you really do live in a bubble where personal responsibility doesn't exist.

She should not have fired her manager for this blunder, she should have fired herself for being a f*cking IDIOT.

It's not just unseemly but it suggests she has a cash-grab mentality that cheapens her stature. One can see Hilary Swank first in line at publicity events, looking for her bag-o-swag. I guess all those nights sleeping in a car with her mom really damaged her.
