Gwyneth Paltrow was slammed after posting a decadent chocolate sundae on her GOOP Instagram account, with critics claiming she would never eat such junk food.
The ultra-thin A-lister usually swears by an extreme clean living diet – copping only to the occasional bite of cheese or bread – so when the lifestyle guru posted a picture of a hot fudge sundae on social media, critics lashed out at her sweet treat.
The GOOP founder shared a picture on the website’s Instagram account of a huge chocolate sundae topped with whipped cream, a banana, cherries, sprinkles and hot fudge with the note “topping off the fourth quarter with our hot fudge #superbowl sundae.”
But her 176,000 followers weren’t buying the ideas that the 42-year-old detox deity would indulge in the decadent dessert.
“How did that feel coming up, Gwyneth? We both know you didn’t digest any of that,” was the harshest of comments – and even thought it was deleted, RadarOnline.com captured a screen grab of the cruel words.
Paltrow touts January as her “Get Clean” month, saying her detox includes no “alcohol, caffeine, added sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshades (white, blue, red, and yellow potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant),” but this dessert (posted on February 1) definitely broke all the rules, and her followers doubted the calorie-packed treat ever reached her lips.
“You did not eat that,” multiple people commented, as Paltrow’s previous post for kale guacamole seemed more her culinary style.
“Is it all tofu?” one person asked and another posed the question: “Do you think gwennie ate any?” to which another person replied “Oh no way, it’s all show.”
But she was lauded for the effort to showcase a treat that someone who makes $25,000 a year could possible afford and enjoy, with one poster writing, “Glad to see some balance GOOP.”
