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."

she won't be without a PR team for long
what company wouldn't want a 2 time Oscar winner as a client
she will weather the storm ..talent will out
and some celebs and politicians have done far worse and are still in public favor
.
as they say.....this too shall pass

that is the price you pay for attending events for money. celebrities are equally for hire like every service industry. remember the famous musicians who performed at an exclusive party for qaddhafi's family? (and wherein one singer refused to return her talent fee for said affair). not content with their million-dollar salary, they want more.
