She probably thinks he's a blues singer with the group President of Nigeria. You've heard their new release, right?

@Lucca: she was born in November 1945, so she is 68 years old. While not true of everyone that age by a long shot, it is possible that she had a "senior moment" and didn't remember what was in the news about Nigeria (or maybe she isn't keeping up with current events).

Let's all calm down before the torches and pitchforks come out. Jesus, not everyone is up to date on the almost countless atrocities happening around the world at any given time. Is this unfortunate? Hell yes. Should she be vilified? No. Calm down, anonymous internet activist.

LOL, this is kind of endearing...

Is she stupid?

The tweet is still on her page. Go post a reply and see what happens.

Maybe she can team up with Dennis Rodman on their next trip abroad!
Regardless of her ignorance, I'm sure she has people working for her that could tell her it's not the best career move to meet with the president of Nigeria.
Love the movie Overboard, though. Still so sad for the LGBT community in Nigeria.

is the air that rarefied in celebrity land that she is unaware of current events? has no one contacted her since?

I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt that she didn't know the issues ... with that said, I hope she responds somehow.

Dementia is a terrible thing. Poor Goldie :(

agree with you Reality - Goldie will be given a lecture by her supebrly hot husband Kirk tonight!

sorry, meant Kurt!

Inexcusable, and any apology is unaccepted.....

Thanks Goldie. Just when the "Dumb Blonde" stereotype was beginning to fade.

someone better educated her real fast. Hard to believe she's that out of touch and ridiculous.
Posted by: joey boyd | Jan 22, 2014 10:27:14 PM
Ouch!!! That does hurt. I'm hopeful she was ignorant of the issues because I love Goldie Hawn, and always felt that she loved me back. My heart goes out to the LGBT communities in countries like Russia, India and Nigeria.

@Paul - Husband? I think you mean her "longttime companion" ... at least that's how The Malibu Times referred to him when the duo sold their beachfront property last year. ;-)

Are you beyond perfection Marc?
Posted by: EYE ROLL | Jan 22, 2014 11:22:55 PM
Wow. How can a person be either so out of touch, or so uncaring?
So what's she got to do with Nigeria anyway? Her Hawn Foundation claims to support improvements to education, through a particular technique. But what is she doing to restore the secular nature of Nigeria's public schools, and what is she doing to help protect students from Boko Haram attacks? These are two of the biggest problems with Nigerian public education.

Who is Goldie Hawn? You folks seem to know who she is.

I'm sure he appreciates her intellect. And cleavage.
