Goldie Hawn 'appalled' for calling President Jonathan wonderful after finding out about anti-gay law

Hollywood actress and activist Goldie Hawn met President Jonathan on January 22nd at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, took a pic with him, shared it on twitter and described the president as 'wonderful president of Nigeria'.

Thing is, Goldie Hawn is a staunch supporter of gay rights and when some fans lashed out at her for taking a pic with an anti-gay president and praising him, Goldie said she had no idea and was appalled. She immediately deleted the pic with the president and apologized to her twitter followers. Continue.

She told Huffingtonpost this morning at Davos
"First of all, the pic had every right to cause an uproar. I had no idea," Hawn said, noting she "literally hadn't looked at the news" because she's been traveling and writing a book.
Hawn said that's "no excuse," and she was "absolutely appalled" when she found out about Jonathan's anti-gay views. "This has nothing to do with my philosophy,"
Hawn called Jonathan's anti-gay actions "very fear-based" and "full of hatred."
"It breaks my heart because I have my own personal feelings about this. This is man's inhumanity to man of the first order. It's more than ridiculous, it's barbaric," Hawn said
