Gwyneth Paltrow Tweets Racial Slur -- Her Other Annoying Moments

Yahoo Contributor Network

To some, Gwyneth Paltrow committed a huge faux pas this weekend when she tweeted a censored racial slur (that's also part of a song title) after hitting the stage at the Jay-Z and Kanye West concert in Paris.

"Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh," she wrote on her WhoSay page, referring to the Jay-Z and Kanye song by the same name. Some fans took exception to her use of the word "ni**gas," even in a censored way.

"You're almost a 40-y/o white woman, c'mon you should know better," one fan commented on the photo.

We agree that she really didn't think the post through, but it's hardly the most annoying and clueless thing she's ever done. Need proof? We have plenty.

Gwyneth Paltrow Recommends $20,000 Spring Wardrobe

The thing about Paltrow is that she has no clue that her fans are normal people who don't have the sort of disposable income to drop on designer clothes - especially not $20,000 worth. Still, she recommended just that in a March edition of her GOOP newsletter. Among the suggestions? A $430 necklace from Assadassah Mounser, Pierre Hardy Leather and canvas sandals for $595 and a Band of Outsiders blazer for $1,010. Sure, let's just break out the checkbook!

Gwyneth Paltrow Writes Cringe-Inducing Cookbook

Snarky food critics waited with baited breath to finally read Paltrow's cookbook, My Father's Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family & Togetherness, when it was released in 2011. The book didn't disappoint: There were plenty of Gwyneth-isms in the book that made readers go "WTF?" at her cluelessness.

"We've got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden-a luxury, I know, but it's one of the best investments I've ever made," she wrote in the book.

She also wrote how another actor told her about the horrors of pork and beef.

"When I was twenty-one, a friend gave me a book called Diet for a New America by John Robbins, which exposed the brutal practices of American factory farms. That, coupled with a lecture from Leonardo DiCaprio (when he was nineteen and I was twenty-one) about how such animals are kept and processed, made me lose my desire for factory farm pork and beef right there."

Gwyneth Paltrow's $425 Cleanse

Most of us start the new year with some resolutions. Paltrow does, too - except hers involve a super expensive cleanse that comes courtesy of her doctor. Of course, she had to tell everyone about it in her GOOP newsletter.

"I've used Clean in the past with great results, losing a few pounds and kick-starting a healthier and more energetic New Year," she wrote of $45 cleanse created by her doctor, Dr. Alejandro Junger. "This month, I'll be doing it along with members of the team and we hope you will too. And, it goes without saying, but be sure to check with your doctor before getting started!"

The cleanse consists of drinking Dr. Junger's shakes for breakfast and dinner, a lunch from the doctor's special list and a bunch of supplements that are supposed to aid digestion - for 21 days. No thanks, we don't need to lose weight that bad.
