Tone Deaf Celeb Of The Day: Gwyneth Paltrow Suggests Picking Up A Hobby As Global COVID-19 Recession Looms

Written by K. Walker on March 25, 2020

The Contagion star gave some advice to her Instagram followers as she posted a photo of her wearing a “Quarantine Chic” outfit.

Paltrow, 47, was walking home from her local farmer’s market with husband Brad Falchuck. She wore a black tanktop and billowy black capris along with her black mask, blue disposable gloves that accessorized the casual outfit.

Like Gal Gadot, she apparently has grown “philosophical” lately and decided to give some advice on how to handle the quarantine. She advised her followers to see it as an “opportunity” to “do something that you’ve always wanted to do like learn a new language, write a book, paint, or learn to code. Alternatively, she says it’s a good time to reconnect with family, cook, or go through photos.

@bradfalchuk and I were grateful to learn our local farmers market was open this morning; we walked there (keeping lots of distance) and donned masks and gloves once we got nearer to the market, only taking them off when we were almost home and there were no other pedestrians in close proximity. Yesterday I heard tales of crowded hiking trails and parks. Although we are all on a learning curve and aren’t always perfect as we figure out this temporary new normal, we must take the orders seriously and not abuse the freedoms we still have; grocery store and essential errand runs, bike rides or walks (being disciplined about correct protocol). It’s not the time for denial. We must take this seriously and shelter in place. It’s time for nesting, reading, cleaning out closets, doing something you’ve always wanted to do (write a book, learn an instrument or a language or learn to code online, draw or paint) going through photos, cooking, and reconnecting on a deeper level with the people you love. I find hope in the generosity, love, protection and care I see and feel through out our country everyday and my heart goes out to everyone directly affected or simply in fear. We will get through and I bet you our humanity will shine like never before ❤️

Normally this wouldn’t be bad advice, but it’s coming as we face massive job losses, a deep recession, and people are concerned about paying their bills, taking care of their families, and if they’ll have a job when the coronavirus crisis is over.

Vox is reporting that 35.2 million low-wage jobs are on the line along with 1.9 million high-wage jobs.

Suggesting that someone now take up learning an instrument seems just a wee bit tone-deaf.

But she’s just like us, right?

Hardly.

It’s not like the recession will really affect her all that much. Her day-to-day life won’t be drastically different.

Recently Paltrow was blasted on social media for being tone-deaf when her Goop brand posted a now-deleted photo of her wearing a $450 khaki skirt and $425 sneakers available on the Goop website.

She also shared a masked selfie when she was “en route to Paris” in February. In the post, she wrote, “Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? Paltrow’s just going to go ahead and sleep with this thing on the plane. I’ve already been in this movie. Stay safe. Don’t shake hands. Wash hands frequently.”

Let’s face it, Gwenyth Paltrow hasn’t been the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I think it’s safe to say that shoving all of those porous things up her hoo-ha while steaming it has somehow made her more stupid. Or maybe it’s her “special” scented candles. 

Actually, I really don’t want to know what’s causing it. I just call it as I see it.
