Gwyneth may have found her knight in shining armor!
The-Dream, a rapper who was also on stage with her at the Kanye/Jay-Z concert is taking ALL of the responsibility for the Gwyneth Paltrow's headline-grabbing Tweet.
From @MrTeriusNash, he Tweeted to his followers:
"Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in paris for real from Gwens Phone my bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit!"
Lit? Oh! Someone's been traipsing in Gwyn's saliva garden, maybe?
The ruckus began when Gwyneth attended the rap concert with Beyonce and Kelly Rowland over the weekend.
She posted a picture of herself having fun on stage and attached the comment "ni**as in paris for real."
We don’t think Gwyneth did anything wrong by captioning her photo with THE NAME OF THE SONG but we applaud The-Dream for coming to her defense.
Sadly, not everyone was successfully placated.
After a torrent of negative feedback, the rapper explained himself in another Tweet:
"Ni**a doesn't have any power over me which is why this will be the last thing I say about it. A word means something when u react to it!"
We tend to agree.
The-Dream continued his Twitter defense:
"Sure Attack her you know she's not going to do anything, you know in your heart she didn't mean it in anyway… No one called Trayvon Ni**a before he shot him it was an action. Racism is an Action!"
Racism is a critically important problem but we don’t find much point in directing needless hostility toward those who neither intended nor caused any harm!
And, oh yeah, “Ni**as in Paris” is THE NAME OF THE SONG!!!
