Goldie Hawn sat down with HuffPost Live at Davos to talk about how horrified she was when she realized, after posting a photo of a handshake with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to Twitter earlier this week, how "barbaric" his policies toward LGBT people are.

Goldie Hawn Regrets Handshake with 'Hateful' Nigerian President

Yesterday, actress Goldie Hawn tweeted a photo from the World Economic Forum at Davos in which she shook the hand of Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan.

Said Hawn in the tweet: "Met the wonderful President of Nigeria".

Hawn was quickly informed of the heinous anti-gay oppression Jonathan has inflicted on the country's gay and lesbians population with his signing of a new law criminalizing gay unions and gay organizations. Dozens have been arrested across the country and are facing trials in Shariah Courts, where homosexuality is a possible death sentence.

The tweet has been removed amid a flurry of responses from Hawn expressing her regret and embarrassment over the photo.
