Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted the N-Word

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Gwyneth Paltrow got herself in a Twitter pickle on Saturday, after tweeting the N-Word. Well, she actually tweeted a title of Kanye West and Jay-Z’s song “Ni**as in Paris,” but it was enough to stir some online controversy.

Paltrow tweeted a photo of “The-Dream”(Terius Nash), Tyty and “Beehigh,” with the writing “Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh” and immediately got some harsh responses over twitter. She responded by writing “Hold up. It’s the title of the song!” And afterwords got some help from “The-Dream” who tweeted Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in paris for real from Gwens Phone my bad I was F*d up please excuse it! We were lit!” and later by tweeting “What! WE GIVE THE WORD TO MUCH POWER!”

I think it’s safe to say that Gwyneth will be watching who she gives her phone to very carefully from now on.
