Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Slammed for 'Insensitive' Post Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Slammed for 'Insensitive' Post Amid Coronavirus Outbreak

Gwyneth Paltrow is facing some backlash.

The goop businesswoman was criticized on Friday (March 13) for a now-deleted post on her brand’s Instagram page amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“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 caption read, featuring a selfie of the star.

Many fans began commenting that the post was insensitive given the current climate, calling it “irresponsible” and “tone-deaf.”

“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,” one person wrote.

“We’re in the middle of a world-wide pandemic, y’all really think anyone’s gonna buy an ugly a–s $450 skirt?” added another.

Gwyneth referenced her movie Contagion in a recent post about the virus on her Instagram.
