Earlier this week, Gwyneth Paltrow accepted the Food Stamp Challenge and was caught going out to eat at a swanky LA restaurant les than 48 hours after tweeting a photo of the food she supposedly planned to live off for an entire week.
Paltrow was already accused of belittling the plight of food insecure families by engaging in "poverty tourism" and publicly patting herself on the back for showing the world what $29 worth of food looks like. (As though the world didn't already know.)
But even her critics conceded that if Paltrow lived on the meager sustenance pictured above for a whole week and chronicled the experience on social media, it might help bring attention to an issue that affects millions of Americans every day.
Unfortunately, Gwyneth continues thumb her nose at the social experiment by publicly nibbling on food that no doubt cost about the same as what the average SNAP-reliant family spends on rent each month.
According to People magazine, Paltrow and boyfriend Brad Falchuk were spotted at high-end restaurant Animal on Tuesday night, and this time, witnesses say there was little doubt that Gwinnie got her nosh on in a major way.
But hey, we're sure she's got some GOOP-y justification for how only ordering one appetizer helps create awareness of the fact that the SNAP budget has been slashed twice in the last 18 months.
Obviously, Gwyneth Paltrow being out of touch and mind-bogglingly tone deaf is nothing new. This is the woman who once compared Internet hate to war trauma.
But it's one thing to just be quietly ignorant to the struggles of those who weren't born into lives of privilege.
It's quite another to essentially make light of life-and-death matters by accepting a challenge that's meant to prove an important point and then openly dining on veal tongue and rabbit legs like some pap-happy Marie Antoinette.
Sounds like Gwyneth is doing her best to piss off PETA and disadvantaged families in the same week. Good job, GOOP!
