Gwyneth Paltrow Defends Her Use Of The “N” Word
In this episode of “when keeping it real goes wrong,” we have whiter than white Gwyneth Paltrow and her careless use of the “n” word.
The actress was partying away onstage at Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s recent Watch the Throne concert in Paris (where the guys broke their own record by performing the hit “N*ggas In Paris” a whopping 11 times in a row) when she got a little carried away with herself. The Oscar winner tweeted a photo of herself up there with Jay, his cousin B-High and childhood friend Ty Ty, writing, “Ni**as in paris for real.”
People instantly started scratching their heads, like “Did this chick really just say that?” Well yes, she did. And not only that, she’s making no apologies for it—blaming it instead on Jay and ‘Ye’s choice of words for the song’s title.
Do you think Gwyneth’s tweet was harmless or it was a reflection of just how careless (and dangerously so) today’s society has become when it comes to such an emotionally-charged word with so much negative history?
