While Gwyneth Paltrow might be the walking organic embodiment of privileged whiteness, at the end of the day she does have a very special friendship with Beyonce where she always tries to make her wear a maid’s outfit and let the children call her “Mammy” while she watches them for a few hours. They’re practically sisters! Which is why there really shouldn’t have been such a huge kerfluffle today when the Internet found out Gwyneth tweeted a photo of herself onstage with The Dream with the following caption (asterisks hers):
Ni**as in paris for real
After the Internet freaked out, Gwyneth Paltrow tried to pretend she was just quoting the Watch The Throne song “Niggas in Paris” not realizing song titles like that are for them and not some hand-painted wallpaper she can just put in Apple’s bedroom so she’ll be a lipstick lesbian instead of one of those Rosie O’Donnell ones that she should legally be allowed to put a plow on to till her macrobiotic garden. How dare you, Parliament?
