Gwyneth Paltrow has been blasted for sharing a ‘tone-deaf’ selfie on her Goop Instagram account on Friday.
The actress and health and wellness mogul, 47, posed for a mirror shot dressed in casual G.Label outfit that totaled around $875 and the post included a ‘tap to shop’ option.
The 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, dont walk). Link in bio for the guide & tap to shop GP’s outfit.’
But the backlash came thick and fast in the comments section, and the post was deleted around four hours later.
‘Tone deaf’: Gwyneth Paltrow was slammed for sharing this promotional selfie on her Goop Instagram account on Friday
One user branded it ‘tone deaf’, while another added: ‘I think it is 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 wrote: ‘Were in the middle of a world wide pandemic yall really think anyones gonna buy an ugly a** $450 skirt’
‘Sorry, why don’t you use your power to inform and spread awareness on what’s going on in the world. I live in Italy and here we are just a few weeks ahead ….remember time flies.’ added another user.
A user called lisavalencia1 added: ‘Come on goop, when you said GP, I thought at 1st you were referring to. dr, please use your platform in a more sensitive way at time when we are suffering with a global epidemic, 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 & gloom but maybe a post on boosting your immune system, stating healthy etc x’
One chimed: ‘You know there’s a medical emergency in the world, right? What can you offer to make it easier for people??’
Another balked at the huge price tag, writing: ‘And at only $875 it’s a total steal. I just won’t pay my car payment or my rent.’
