Gwyneth Paltrow has found herself smack in the middle of an N-word controversy.

The actress and mother of two has been under fire for a tweet she posted June 1 while at a Kanye West and Jay-Z "Watch the Throne" concert in Paris.

"--- in Paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh" she tweeted, replacing two of the letters in the N-word with stars.

She also posted a photo from backstage with the tweet, implying she was referring to the pair's hit song, "--- in Paris."

Still, many fans didn't take to the tweet well.

"Hold up. It's the title of the song!" Paltrow posted on Sunday after media reports began to surface about the controversial tweet.

Paltrow and her husband, Chris Martin, are known to be very close with Jay-Z. In May, the actress took her children, Apple and Moses, to one of his concerts.

Do you think Paltrow's tweet crossed the line?
