Actress fights poverty wearing $380 sweater at Golden Globes; what’s written on it is the mindblowing part

Actress Connie Britton took virtue-signaling to a whole ‘nother level by sporting a $380 “Poverty is Sexist” shirt at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.

Britton walked the red carpet in an unflattering black sweater with the words “Poverty Is Sexist” written across the front. The slogan is an apparent nod to rocker Bono’s anti-poverty campaign that seeks to help women and men in economically disadvantaged communities.

Connie discussed why she wore the sweater in an Instagram post ahead of the Golden Globes:

Predictably, the mainstream media and many Twitter users applauded Britton’s hollow gesture, even though the plain sweater (designed by Lingua Franca) retails for a whopping $380, according to E! News.

Many slammed Connie Britton for her self-promoting virtue-signaling, which did nothing except score her extra press coverage.

Some people didn’t know who she was, since she’s not an A-lister like Angelina Jolie or Sandra Bullock. Britton starred on the NBC TV series “Friday Night Lights” from 2006 until 2011.

Some Twitter users pointed out that men are far more likely than women to be homeless, and that poverty is an equal-opportunity affliction.

Still others urged virtue-signaling celebrity hams to DO something instead of just preening for the cameras.

In another bizarre moment during the 2018 Golden Globes, actress Ally Sheedy appeared to call out Best Actor winner James Franco for sexual harassment/abuse in a stunning tweet.

Sheedy allegedly tweeted: “Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo” She added: “Why is James Franco allowed in? Said. too much. Nite love ya.”  The tweets were later deleted.
