Gwyneth Paltrow was slammed by Piers Morgan this week for hilariously bright posts on her lifestyle brand Goop’s website.
One Goop article called men “penis-wearing people” while offering a tutorial on cock rings, and another referred to men as “the people with a prostate.”
“Gwyneth talks about absurd virtue,” Piers, 57, said, according to The Sun. “A person with a penis is called a MAN. And I say that with some confidence as someone who wears one.’

Anne Robinson, once host of The Weakest Link, quipped, “If she can’t identify a man, she needs to be careful about her daily outdoor shower.”
She was referring to the fact that Gwyneth revealed in a recent Goop video that her luxurious morning routine includes an al fresco shower after a sauna session.
None of the Goop articles in question have a byline, so the extent of Gwyneth’s involvement in their writing is unknown.
Gwyneth’s recent transfer from Piers Morgan isn’t the first time she’s been ridiculed for an odd twist.
“Absurd Virtue Signal Goop”: A Goop article called men “penis-bearing people,” prompting Piers to snap, “A penis-bearing person is referred to as a MAN.”
When she and first husband Chris Martin split in 2014, she sparked widespread mockery by describing their split as a “conscious uncoupling.”
Since its launch in 2008, Goop has been known for advice that ranges from the idiosyncratic to the bizarre, urging women to steam clean their vaginas and theorizing about a “link between underwired bras and breast cancer.”
Since then, however, the brand has continued to grow, even spawning its own Netflix series, The Goop Lab, two years ago.
Gwyneth made global headlines in early 2020 for posting a $75 candle on Goop titled “This Smells Like My Vagina.”
How the other half lives: Anne Robinson, once the host of The Weakest Link, quipped: “If she can’t identify a man, she has to be careful about her daily outdoor shower.”
The product, which quickly sold out, was marketed as scented with “geranium, citrus bergamot and cedar absolute alongside rose damask and ambrette seed.”
Her vagina candle was such a hit that Gwyneth followed it up with another $75 candle, this one said to be scented with her orgasm.
Goop lists “tart grapefruit, neroli and ripe cassis berries blended with gunpowder tea and Turkish rose absolute” as components of the scent.
To mark the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade that January, Gwyneth released another Goop candle called Hands Off My Vagina.

The limited-edition candle cost $75, with $25 from each sale going to the ACLU Foundation’s Reproductive Freedom Project, according to Goop.
She told Jimmy Fallon at the time: “You know, I think we’re obviously very woman-friendly at Goop, and we really believe that women should have agency to make whatever choices they want in their lives in any area. So we were happy to partner with the ACLU and be able to do this. It’s really exciting.’
Just a few months later, the Supreme Court returned the power to make abortion laws to the states by granting Roe v. Wade overturned the landmark 1973 ruling that had guaranteed abortion rights nationwide for nearly half a century.

On the personal front, Gwyneth and Chris have managed to remain amicable co-parents to their children Apple, 18, and Moses, 16.
Gwyneth is even friends with Chris’ much younger girlfriend Dakota Johnson, who rose to international fame in the Fifty Shades movies.
Meanwhile, Gwyneth has been married to her dashing second husband Brad Falchuk, a screenwriter known for his collaborations with Ryan Murphy, since 2018.
