Gwyneth Paltrow Tweets N-Word - People Not Happy, Including Whoopi Goldberg [VIDEO]
She's Right, Of Course. Of Course, It's Still Yet Another Thing to Make Us Dislike Her
Gwyneth Paltrow, the Goop-meister herself, set off a controversy on Twitter last weekend when she used the N-word while sharing that she was enjoying herself at a Jay-Z/Kanye West concert in Paris.
"Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh," Paltrow tweeted on Friday, along with a photo of herself at the concert.
The missive immediately set off a debate on Twitter regarding whether or not it was okay for Paltrow to use the N-word, though, as she pointed out, she was merely quoting the name of a Jay-Z/West song -- "Ni**as in Paris" -- which the duo performed several times during the "Watch the Throne Tour" show, TMZ.com reports.
So, in complete fairness, Paltrow was the subject of some backlash she really didn't deserve.
On the other hand, we get it … she just makes it so easy to dislike her.
Is it because she tweeted a photo of herself on stage with the two rappers that raises your ire? Or that, despite coming off repeatedly as the world's biggest Snooty Snooterson, she wants the world to think she's the kind of hipster doofus who can get down and funky with her bad self at a Jay-Z/Kanye West concert?
Yes. And Yes.
In fact, if we heard any other working mom of two was rocking out at a hip-hop show, we'd probably assume a certain coolness factor with said mom.
But Gwynie? Nope. Just makes us roll our eyes and think of several Goop jokes.
But how about you? Even if you think she got an unfair round of criticism with the song title tweet, in general:
Do you think Gwyneth Paltrow is cool?

By the way, we should point out that Whoopi Goldberg had yet another take on Gwynie's tweet this morning on The View, and, well, she might not be such a Gwynie fan now, either.
