Actress Gwnyneth Paltrow used the n-word in one of her tweets live from the stage of one ofÂ Jay-Z and Kanye Westâ€™s â€œWatch The Throneâ€ shows in Paris, France on Friday (June 1).
The 39 year-old posted a picture of herself on stage with the caption, â€œNi**as in paris for real.â€ Yeah! Fun. Then, everybody got really upset because Gwyneth used the n-word to describe the rappers.
However, thatâ€™s what they call themselves in one of their infamous and very popular songs. So whatâ€™s wrong with Gwyneth using the word too? She explained, â€œHold up. It’s the title of the song!â€
And we are back to discussing who is allowed to say the n-word and in what circumstances they are allowed to say it. It sounds pretty hypocritical to me. Did I mention that Jay-Z and Kanye are the genius minds (*sarcasm*) behind a song titled â€œN***as In Parisâ€?
So is okay for Gwyneth Paltrow to tweet the n-word? Or is it racist?
