Gwyneth Paltrow has been heavily criticized for hinting that only men are gay, according to Metro. The Iron Man actress paid tribute only to male victims of the Orlando massacre that took place earlier this month.
Gwyneth Paltrow took to Instagram to pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting, as a result of which 49 people died and 53 were left injured, both men and women. But for some reason, the 43-year-old actress forgot to mention that there were also female victims in that massacre.
In the Instagram post in question, Gwyneth Paltrow featured a picture from her ex-husband Chris Martin’s band Coldplay’s show at London’s Wembley Stadium last Saturday night. In the picture, there is rainbow colored confetti thrown onto the crowd to pay tribute to the victims of the massacre at a Florida gay club.
The confetti at Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex-husband’s show was thrown during Coldplay’s hit song “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall.” In her Instagram post, the Iron Man actress paid tribute to “the beautiful men of Orlando.”
“Rainbow cloud of confetti during everytearawaterfall [sic] made my heartbreak again for the beautiful men of Orlando who senselessly lost their lives.”
Then her Instagram follower pointed out, “Because only men are gay right,” and Gwyneth Paltrow was quick to edit her post, which now pays tribute to women as well. The actress was also criticized for getting the song titled wrong, writing “Every Tear a Waterfall” instead of “Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall.”
Gwyneth Paltrow has finally shown a glimpse of her $18 million “artisanal” New York apartment, according to Stuff. The Iron Man actress offered her fans a rare look at the Tribeca loft-style apartment, which she is currently trying to sell with her ex-husband Chris Martin.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Martin officially divorced last month, and now the two are selling the NYC apartment for $18 million. The actress shared images of the apartment on her own lifestyle website, Goop.
On Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow described the apartment as “a pale, dreamy cloud” where “pastel silks, hand-embroidered wallpapers, and cool swaths of marble punctuate the space.” In fact, Paltrow and Martin have been trying to sell the luxury 3,892-square-foot apartment since March, and they even reduced their initial price by more than $2.8 million.
The NYC apartment features three bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as a marble bath. It also has a terrace and kitchen. Gwyneth Paltrow had never previously allowed cameras inside her her abode until now, as it had always been her “family space.”
But ever since moving to Los Angeles with her two children Apple, 12, and Moses, 10, Gwyneth Paltrow felt the need to sell the apartment in New York City. It’s unclear whether or not Paltrow has potential buyers or not now that the price has been reduced.
In the apartment, there is a swing that was made especially for Gwyneth Paltrow’s kids from an antique Indian door.

There is also a bed so big that sheets had to be custom made. The actress designed the apartment’s interior design in partnership with design firm Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors.
Robin Standefer, who is the principal at Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors, says she was invited by Gwyneth Paltrow to design her apartment after she saw her and her husband Stephen Alesch’s interior design work at a friend’s home.
“That kind of phone call never gets old. It was the beginning of a wonderful relationship.”
Gwyneth Paltrow saw how the firm could channel the apartment’s ethereal palette and decorated it with light delicate whites and palest lavenders.
