Connie Britton Responds to Backlash Over Controversial $380 'Poverty Is Sexist' Sweater

Connie Britton wore a sweater with the words “Poverty is Sexist” embroidered on the front to the 2018 Golden Globes, and there was some backlash online after it was discovered that the piece cost $380.

“So I wanted to purchase @conniebritton’s “poverty is sexist” #GoldenGlobes sweater, but when I looked it up, it costs $380…. is it just me or does that seem ironic?,” one Twitter user wrote. Similar sentiments were felt by others.

Connie responded last night, saying, “For those concerned with the price of my Globes sweater I just don’t think a $5000 gown would have added to the conversation in the same way. And @linguafrancanyc who designed it, inspired by @ONECampaign, is donating $100 of each purchase to @camfed”
