Saturday night was the Screen Actors Guild awards show, but fans weren’t paying attention to who was winning what. The most talked about point of the evening was Susan Sarandon’s clothing – or lack of it.

In an outfit that most would actually call tame today when compared to the dresses that celebrities such as Rihanna or Kim Kardashian are known for wearing, Susan Sarandon stepped on stage to present the “In Memoriam” segment of the show while wearing a white blazer with nothing but a bra underneath.

The actress has since received a ton of criticism from fans who have labeled her outfit as “scandalous” and called Sarandon out for baring too much cleavage. While another actress might have been called sexy for the same outfit, the 69-year-old Sarandon was slammed for her choice of dress.

While fans who have defended Susan Sarandon are citing ageism as the reason behind the backlash, those who have spoken up against the actress’s outfits have said otherwise. They have pointed out the seriousness of the “In Memoriam” segment that Sarandon presented, which honored late stars such as David Bowie and Alan Rickman, and said that her clothing distracted from the solemn moment.

One upset viewer tweeted saying, “Good of Susan Sarandon to show us her brassiere introducing the in memoriam segment. It was appropriately black.”

However, despite the large amount of backlash that Sarandon has received for showing her bra at the SAG awards show, there has been an equal amount of fans rushing to defend her.

“Susan Sarandon out here here pushing 70, and she’s still looking amazing in a bra,” said one fan, another echoing their sentiments with “Uh if I looked like this @ 69, I’d wear this too! Haters gon hate…”
