The-Dream Defends Gwyneth Paltrow’s “N-Word” Tweet
While at the historic Jay-Z and Kanye West “Ni**as In Paris”, in Paris, performance, Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted her excitement about being at the show by tweeting, “Ni**as in paris for real.”
That simple tweet, got all types of angry fans to jump down her throat for including a censored tweet of the “N-Word” in her post. She defended herself by tweeting “Hold up. It’s the title of the song!”
The-Dream has also come forward to defend her from unnecessary hatred, claiming that it was actually him who posted the tweet on her phone while she was dancing on stage with Jay-Z and Kanye West during the performance. Since he tried to clear things up in her name, all of the haters who were getting at her adjusted their aim and fired off at The-Dream non-stop. He ended up in engaging in a back and forth Twitter conflict with loads of different people, all the while trying to educate those who were hating on him and Gwyneth, that the use of the N-Word, does not hold the same meaning as it did before.
She honestly didn’t mean any harm even if she was the one who tweeted the initial post, and honestly, it is the name of the song.
Does this mean that because Jay-Z and Kanye West (two intelligent businessmen as well as talented artists) titled their song, “Ni**as In Paris“, no one else aside from African Americans are allowed to say the title, even if they censor it?
You have to think about that.
