Tonight, the #TimesUp campaign launched at the Golden Globes. Celebrities decided to wear all black to stand in solidarity with those who have been victims of sexual assault and harassment.
While most of the celebrities looked rather classy, actress Connie Britton took things to a whole new level with her “poverty is sexist” t-shirt.

Um…not quite how that works, Connie.
But shockingly, people were put off by her attempt at being a Social Justice Warrior.
I guess it is too much to ask that Hollywood folks be just a bit more self aware. Really poor execution, pun intended.

They live in la-la-land. Don’t forget that.
That doesn't even make sense and is completely false.

Sadly, logic isn’t a requirement in Hollywood.
So there's no poor men? Or women? Wtf does that even mean?

Poverty is blind to race, gender and political party. It impacts a number of people.
That's like putting "I AM STUPID" on a t-shirt. pic.twitter.com/fm9SCCLR59
