At least she's taking some sort of responsibility.
Hilary Swank got into trouble a couple months ago when she attended a party for Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, a man who is accused of torturing and murdering.
She later apologized for the incident, but then made an appearance this week on The Tonight Show, her first since the controversy, to say she was in deep "regret" and "shame on me," for not doing her research beforehand.
Finally. We hope you learned your lesson.

Hilary Swank has been dumped!
As reported earlier, Swank has been under fire for attending the birthday bash of Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov, a suspected human violator, murderer, torturer, and other not so nice things.
The Million Dollar Baby had some more things to boo-hoo over as her PR firm, 42West, dropped her as a client after disagreeing on how to handle the fiasco.
Swank has also parted ways with her manager of eight years but she has kept her lawyer, a major player in her paid appearance at the party.
She has donated her fee to charity but has not accepted real responsibility. “If I had a full understanding of what this event was apparently intended to be,” she said, “I would never have gone.”

And not because the goodie bags were just "eh."
Hilary Swank and several other celebrities came under fire this week after it was reported they attended the birthday party concert for the President of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov , a ruthless man accused of torturing and killing many, many people.
However, Hilary maintains that when she accepted the invitation, she had no idea what kind of man Chechnya was accused of being. She simply was interested in going to the concert. She released a statement today, explaining:
