Gwyneth Paltrow’s N-Word Tweet Gets Thumbs-Up From Russell Simmons
Gwyneth Paltrow’s use of a racial slur on her Twitter account over the weekend angered many. But Russell Simmons wasn’t one of them. Hip-hop mogul Simmons weighed in on Paltrow’s controversial tweet via a post on Global Grind on Tuesday, and to hear him tell it, the only thing that offended him about the actress’ tweet was that he wasn’t also at the Jay-Z and Kanye West concert that Paltrow tweeted from.
