Actress Wears "Anti-Poverty" Shirt to Golden Globes. Guess How Much...
Hollywood awards show are where political statements are as common as botox and ludicrously overpriced clothing. Of course, this was doubly true at this year's Golden Globes. Hollywood needed to overcompensate for the fact they looked the other way while Harvey Weinstein raped his way through central casting. So the decree came down: "Thou Shalt All Wear Black. To Show How Super Serious We All Are."
Actress Connie Britton? She was a little extra super serious...

I don't even know what that means. Are women 70 cents on the dollar more in poverty than men? Did poverty tell women they looked fat in that shirt? Is "Poverty" really Lena Dunham's slave name?
"Nowhere on earth do women have as many opportunities as men. Nowhere. But for girls and women in the poorest countries, that inequality is amplified," the ONE Campaign's website reads. We won't end extreme poverty until we break down the barriers holding girls and women back. Sexism is global — the fight against it should be too. Join the movement and use your voice to call for change. We're almost 8 million strong already, but we'll be even more powerful with you."
Basic leftist word salad. It doesn't mean anything, tastes like nothing, but you think it's good for you. One detail does stick out though.
The sweater appears to be specially designed by Lingua Franca; similar pieces typically retail for around $380.
Tami Taylor would have spent her money more wisely.
$380 for a shirt to "fight" "poverty." A black shirt with white writing on it. She could have had the shirt made at the flea market for $9.95. How much could $380 have bought in rice or beans or whatever we're sending poor people these days? Also, and here's a greatest hit from all awards shows: how much was the gift bag, which everyone in attendance took home, worth? Those are usually in the five figures.
Spending $380 on a shirt to allegedly fight poverty is reason number 58350234 why Americans don't take celebrities seriously when they claim to stand for things. Oh feminist Hollywood.
