Ha**rs In Paris?

How many heard about Gwyneth Paltrow's Twitter bomb from this past week? If you don't know, Gwyn dropped the dreaded N-bomb at a Jay-Z/Kanye concert in Paris via a tweet, shouting out the song. Only thing is, G. Paltrow didn't edit herself. 

R&B singer The Dream quickly came to her defense and claimed ownership of her tweet, saying her phone was nearby and he typed it out in her phone. A few days later, he fessed up and admitted that he only came to her aid because he knew the situation would spiral out of control. Lo and behold, it did!

Gwyneth defended herself on twitter saying, "Hold up. It's the title of the song!" Numerous individuals, including Nas, have come to her defense, either giving her a pass or saying its not that big of a deal. 

What say you, public? Personally, I don't see the big deal. I think some people just want a fight and have nothing better to do. Besides, it's not like she was using the term in a negative context. She was stating the name of an actual published hit song! 

Trust me, if "Cracker Killer Honky Man" was a hit song by Kid Rock, we'd run down the street yelling the title and lyrics at the top of our voices in the hood and elsewhere. Leave Gwyneth Paltrow alone, y'all. Some things are bigger than rap; this isn't one of them. 

Oh, and if you don't know who Gwneth Paltrow is, just think of Iron Man's "secretary" Pepper Potts. Yea, that's her. Also a good friend to Jay and Bey, amongst others.
