People Are Ripping Gwyneth Paltow After Claiming ‘She’s The Reason Yoga Is Popular’

Gwyneth Paltrow has received quite a bit of backlash from fans in the past, but it normally involves her lifestyle brand Goop and their… questionable life tips.


Like for example, promoting sticking jade eggs up your vagina (which is not a good tip, don’t put anything like that up your lady business, gals), or asking volunteers to help out at an event that had tickets for £300. Oh, and we won’t even go too into the fact that Goop sells a product that is genuinely called Psychic Vampire Repellent (that apparently helps you get rid of ‘bad vibes). But her latest mishap she can’t blame on Goop, as she’s kind of dropped herself in it here all on her own.


Speaking to Wall Street Journal’s WSJ Magazine, Gwyneth claimed that she was called a ‘crackpot’ for eating well and doing yoga, saying to the publication: ‘I remember when I started doing yoga and people were like, “What is yoga? She’s a witch. She’s a freak”.’

She then continued by saying: ‘Forgive me if this comes out wrong’ – which means it’s obviously going to come out wrong – ‘but I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, “Have you ever done yoga before?” ‘And literally I turned to my friend, and I was like, “You have this job because I’ve done yoga before”.’

Oh Gwyneth. Considering yoga has been around for about, 5000 years – as you can imagine, the internet has had a FIELD day with her latest admission and she’s getting a bit ribbed on social media over it.


Somehow I think she’s gonna regret saying that one.
