Gwyneth Paltrow caused a stir last weekend when tweeting a photo of The-Dream in France with the caption "Ni**as in paris for real @MrTeriusNash (the dream) tyty, beehigh say.ly/ySc3rTP." There was immediate backlash, and we suspect that it had little to do with anyone thinking that Gwyneth Paltrow is an actual racist and more to do with the indisputable fact that if you're Gwyneth Paltrow, you should never, ever, ever say, type or be in the same room as someone using the N-word under any circumstance (even if it's censored). You don't get to start GOOP and still get the benefit of the doubt. Sorry, Winnie.

Who else isn't allowed to say that word, ever, period? Obviously, nobody should use it, but we compiled a list of people who can't quote it, ironically use it, use a variation of it, or basically allow it escape their lips in any way whatsoever.

By the way, this is a scientific and conclusive list.
