The stars were out to watch Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Watch the Throne" Concert in Paris, including; the Dream, Spike Lee, and Beyonce's best friend Gwyneth Paltrow.

One of the rap duo's hit songs is "N**gas in Paris" and it was their first time in Paris, France performing the track.

In celebration, Kanye West and Jay-Z invited their celebrity guests on stage for the performance which led to a controversial tweet from Gwyneth Paltrow.

 She tweeted:

   "Ni**as in paris for real @MrTeriusNash (the dream) tyty, beehigh"

The web quickly went ablaze in retweets and commentary about what was deemed by many an inappropriate tweet. Paltrow quickly tweeted in defense:

   "Hold up. It's the title of the song!"

Many people are upset with the tweet and believe it is not okay for the white actress to use the term n**ga in any context, whether it was the name of the song or not. Beyonce and Paltrow are best friends. Maybe the actress felt comfortable with the term or it is allowed to be used around them. Who knows? Either way, Paltrow is definitely facing a lot of heat she probably did not see coming.

What do you all think?
