Gwyneth Paltrow Blasted for Hawking $1000 ‘Casual Outfit” on Her Website During ‘Worldwide Pandemic’
Gwyneth Paltrow just got a liberal mob beatdown
Fans accused elitist actress Gwyneth Paltrow of being “tone-deaf” and “callous” after she used her high-end “Goop” website to try and sell a $1000 outfit in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
The Oscar-winning Trump-hater posed in a white shirt, khaki skirt and sneakers for a photo posted on the Goop Instagram page.
The photo caption read: “Most days you’ll find GP wearing G.Label with a pair of sneakers—which is one reason we make it an annual tradition to put together a fresh sneaker guide each year. Get ready to cover some serious ground (run, don’t walk).”
The post was deleted after her mostly liberal fans had a collective meltdown.
Her fervent followers, however, were less than happy as soon as the post went up, with one writing, “I think it’s irresponsible to post this as a world-wide pandemic is going on. You have a great platform around health. Now would be the time to expand on it.”
Another said, “Come on goop, when you said GP, I thought at first you were referring to Dr. Please use your platform in a more sensitive way … I really don’t think it’s the time to think about buying trainers when people are struggling to buy day to day supplies. We don’t want doom and gloom, but maybe a post on boosting your immune system, staying healthy etc…”
Paltrow’s outfit was comprised of a G. Label “Alexander” slit trouser skirt costing $450, and Alexandre Berman’s “Clarita” sneakers at $425.
Among the 145 comments on the post, another added: “We’re in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, y’all really think anyone’s gonna buy an ugly a–s $450 skirt?”
Some called the message “tone-deaf” and “irresponsible” as one said: “Who would buy any clothing items now? Only making the rich richer.”
The post did follow a Goop Instagram post on staying healthy amid the global crisis, which only served to make the brand even more out of touch as another follower wrote: “What is this BS!” accusing Goop of trying to sell “$500 trainers that to be honest my 94-year-old grandmother wouldn’t wear.” [Page Six]
There is simply no pleasing liberals. You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. I guess liberals expect everyone to stop conducting business and just post “virus posts.”
Look, I’m no fan of Paltrow, but the world goes on, just like it did in 2009 during the Swine flu epidemic. If anything, online websites should see increased revenues in terms of sales—you can shop while “quarantined.” Stay safe. Wash your hands, avoid large crowds, sip a beverage every 15 minutes to wash down any germs, and don’t touch your face.
