Gwyneth Paltrow’s Twitter followers are going gorillas!

The caption — “Ni**as in paris for real” — incensed those who saw it, leading many to cry racism. But “Ni**as in Paris” is the name of one of the rap duo’s mega-hit songs from Watch the Throne, and Gwynnie was watching them perform it live in Paris.
