She’s a freak.’ ’’And then she seemed to stretch reality further: “Forgive me if this comes out wrong,” she said, “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.’ ”It did come out wrong, according to some on the Internet.@GwynethPaltrow being her typical, narcissistic, delusional self. “You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.” She is legit the worst. 🤮 Gwyneth Paltrow Sees Goop as ‘Trailblazers’ for Women’s Health — Vaginal Steaming and All https://t.co/h9f2WAHlPE— Courtney Vaudreuil (@LaVaudreuil) December 4, 2018Me at the post office: ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.’ Me to my shrink: ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.’ Me to the coffee-cart guy: ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.’ Me taking notes at The Cher Show: ‘Y https://t.co/gBuCRgTEW6— Matthew Schneier (@MatthewSchneier) December 4, 2018Breaking: Gwyneth Paltrow invented yoga pic.twitter.com/JECxNWsaz4— Marta 🧘🏻‍♀️ (@martafsj) December 5, 2018This dumba** will never understand that the world doesn’t spin around her! 🤦‍♀️ #GwynethPaltrow#wsjpic.twitter.com/CZbA62seRV— Mónica Silva (@monicasilv_a) December 5, 2018My brown self did not know that Gwyneth Paltrow invented yoga.
