Iron Man actress Gwyneth Paltrow is under fire for tweeting the N- word.
Daily Mail reports that the mother of Apple and Moses was cheering on her friend, Jay-Z, while on tour with Kanye West in Paris for their double headline tour.
The actress attached a photo from WhoSay, seen above, which features her onstage with Jay-Z and Kanye. Along with the photo, Gwyneth tweeted, “Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh.”

The 39-year-old actress was on hand with Jay-Z’s wife, Beyonce, and her former Destiny’s Child’s bandmate, Kelly Rowland. Gwyneth rocked out with the gals, while her Coldplay husband prepared for his own tour in London.
Now, the Shallow Hal actress is receiving flack from her followers for the tweet, saying, “r u white,” “This is sick and not right,” writes another, along with, “What the f***.” However, Gwyneth was simply referencing a song. The actress attempted to smooth things over, writing, “Hold up. It's the title of the song! RT@lovebscott Okay or Not? @GwynethPaltrow Tweets The N-Word.”
What do you think of the controversy?
