Twitter Came With Pitchforks For Connie Britton’s Golden Globes Sweater

January 11, 2018 / Posted by:

Blowback from last weekend’s Golden Globes is still making our eyes water so it’s hard to tell if people are crying from the hypocrisy of it all or from some of the questionable ensembles noir. Connie Britton, the latest celebrity to earn some post GG side eye, managed to tick both boxes with her choice of outfit for the event.

People reports that Connie’s outfit of choice, a simple black sweater bedazzled with the slogan “Poverty Is Sexist” angered some unwealthies.

To stand in solidarity with women who experience sexual harassment, Britton not only chose to wear black to the 2018 Golden Globes as a way to show her support for the Time’s Up movement, but also chose to wear an embroidered black sweater with a powerful message. However, Twitter users quickly pointed out a mixed message the star was sending since the Lingua Franca sweater retails for approximately $380.

Connie Britton, welcome to the Twitterdome! Here are some of the things disgusting poor people had to say about Connie’s sweater.

Connie responded to the criticism by pointing out that the makers of the sweater actually are donating some of the proceeds to charity. So take that ya toothless bologna eaters!

Poor Connie. Imagine what a $380 sweater looks like to her. That’s chump change, son! That’s the equivalent of me going through a dumpster behind Goodwill and pulling out a coffee stained t-shirt from the 1997 Chico’s Bail Bonds Fun Run and screaming “Bingo!”. Besides, if these unwashed hillbillies really want to sport Connie’s sweater, there is nothing stopping them from running to the dollar store and picking up a tube of silver puff paint and making one themselves. I swear, these poor people are always looking for a handout!
