The controversy involving Gwyneth Paltrow, Twitter, the N-word and Jay-Z and Kanye West just won’t go away. To recap, the actress set off a firestorm last week when she tweeted a photo of herself onstage with the Watch the Throne duo. The caption read, “Ni—s in Paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh,” and many cried foul at Paltrow’s casual use of the dreaded epithet, even though it’s in the title of the song.

Now, the man at-tagged in the infamous tweet, The-Dream, has hopped to Paltrow’s defense, explaining that he was the one manning her phone.

“Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in Paris for real from Gwens phone. My bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit! [sic]” he tweeted.

In another post, he elaborated on why fans ought to give Paltrow a break.

“N—a doesn’t have any power over me which is why this will be the last thing I say about it,” he tweeted. “A word means something when u react to it! … Context is everything. Meaning it in the context as a Song which is how we Sold it to the world!!!!!! It is what it is … And actually N—az was in Paris! LOL. Stop wasting God’s time and do something with your life. Love not war.”

What do you think? If The-Dream sent the tweet, is Paltrow off the hook? If he’s covering for her, and she’s actually responsible, should the public be miffed?

Hit us up @theboombox — or have The-Dream do it for you — and let us know what you think.
