Gwyneth Paltrow Defends Using N-Word On Twitter
Gwyneth Paltrow got into some trouble earlier this week for sending out a tweet containing the N-Word.
Paltrow tweeted a picture of Jay-Z and Kanye West performing a concert in Paris, and wrote:
“Ni**as in paris for real.
@mrteriusnash (the dream).”
The Hollywood Gossip reports that the tweet was sent out to Paltrow’s 975,000 followers and most of them were unhappy that the actress used the N-word.
“Hold up. It’s the title of the song!”
But that still wasn’t good enough for some people. One user took offense to the fact that Paltrow was addressing The Dream, who has nothing to do with the song. The user wrote:
“Lets be very clear she called a group of black men that have nothing to do with the song ‘Ni**as’. Are Kanye and Jay-z in the picture? No. She is specifically calling The Dream and Ty Ty real ‘Ni**as In Paris’ in that moment… There was no need for that. She’s the one that connected the two, They have nothing to do with the song.”
What do you think? Was Gwyneth Paltrow’s tweet over the line?
Paltrow didn’t write the entire word. Instead, she wrote a bleeped out version. She was also at a concert where Jay-Z and Kanye West were performing “Nig**s In Paris.” If there’s one time where it may be excusable for Paltrow to use that word, that would have been the time.
But, according to US Weekly, it wasn’t even Paltrow who sent out the Tweet. Producer The Dream (real name Terius Nash) wrote:
“FYI, sorry for the confusion. I typed ‘N—– in Paris for real from Gwen’s phone, my bad… Please excuse it! We were lit.”
