Sexual violence and the refugee crisis were on the UNHR special envoy’s agenda as she met the Anglican leader
A frenzy over her wardrobe choice:
Hollywood star Angelina Jolie met the head of the Church of England, and her fans have expressed their concern over her bold style statement.
Jolie, 41, sat down with Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury last Thursday to discuss important issues. However, it was her choice of wardrobe that grabbed attention and created a Twitter frenzy.
The Anglican leader tweeted pictures from the meeting, which prompted shocked fans to criticize her daring outfit.
The pictures were captioned: “Privilege to welcome UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie. Discussed refugee crisis, South Sudan and prevention of sexual violence in conflict.”
A shocked viewer wrote on Twitter: “She needs a bra. Looks like she could poke someone’s eye out. How embarrassing!” While another jokingly asked the archbishop to keep his focus, he tweeted: “Eyes up, Archbishop!”
Another angry tweet read: “Angelina Jolie is a trick ass ho in this pic. You are meeting religious figures, wear a goddamn bra.” She was also branded as “shameless”.
Jolie and the Archbishop discussed important topics such as sexual violence, the refugee crisis, and South Sudan. But social media was more interested in her wardrobe than her talking point. Jolie wore a full-sleeved grey sweater and an ivory-pleated skirt.
On the other hand, Welby, only had good words for the global star. He said: “The role of the U.N. Secretary General’s Special Envoy on Refugees, Angelina Jolie Pitt, is one that has been extraordinary.”
He added: “What she said just now sums up so beautifully the issues we are facing, and puts it so precisely in terms of the challenge that there is. It’s wonderful that she has committed her time, her energy, and has taken great personal risks in order to be able to speak authentically as to what she’s done.”
