By now you've heard the brouhaha over thespian Gwyneth Paltrow's tweeting a pic of herself onstage at a Watch The Throne show with the caption: "Ni**as in Paris for real." (We really do hope you've heard all about it, because recapping the incident is a pain in the ass for real.) The whole thing was a big deal (for real) because, lest we forget, G-Pat, who is no stranger to rap, is White and not even the fact she used the name of the song or a couple of "**"'s could save her ass from criticism, and spark debate (as well as sarcasm) as seen in the following tweets from folks from all over...
Gwyneth Paltrow, everyone knows Kanye and Jay-Z named their song that to test white people.You failed the test, bitch. Stop trying so hard

Can everyone stop solely blaming Gwyneth Paltrow. It's her dumb ass black friends that deserve the shit. — MEGAIN (@ME_AGAIN1) June 5, 2012
Gwyneth Paltrow's use of the word "niggas" just strengthens my theory that she still thinks she can own black people.

I sympathise with Gwyneth Paltrow .. all that hanging round with Jayz and Kanye it was only inevitable that she accidently dropped N bomb. — Fais (@ndashing) June 5, 2012
I am not understanding how people get upset for Gwyneth Paltrow tweeting the title of a song. Why isn't anyone objecting to the TITLE itself —جميلة (@OhThatJamii) June 5, 2012
Gwyneth Paltrow needs to stop trying to secretly steal jayz from Queen B #backoffbitch

I don't know who is more ignorant: the people saying the N-word or the people defending it?
