Social media is awesome but there can be downsides that you do not expect. For example, we have all experienced that awkward moment when we post something and we do not receive the expected responses. It’s not because our friends and loved ones are big meanies, but usually because they have noticed something in the post that you did not catch before you put it up for the whole world to see.

Typically, this sort of thing is innocent. You might have a messier bedroom than you think you do. The bathroom mirror that you’re using for those selfies might need to be cleaned. In this particular instance, a celebrity has found themselves on the receiving end of these comments. To be quite honest, it is nice to know that even beautiful people are not immune to such remarks.

Gwyneth Paltrow may have thought that she was showing off her skirt but that’s not what unfolded. Instead, all of her followers decided to take a closer look at everything that was behind her. We’re not sure if she was in her Hamptons home or her Los Angeles home, but she seems to be a bit of a minimalist.

Home in a skirt for no real reason other than it’s new #glabel @goop

A post shared by Gwyneth Paltrow (@gwynethpaltrow) on

The living room is very orderly, near as we can tell. The dining rooms looks okay, too. So what did the commenters focus on? “But why are there towels everywhere?” says it all. Or, in the words of another commenter, “Is it multiple rugs? Or one rug made to look like layered rugs?” We can’t stop laughing now that we have noticed these things. Once you see it, you cannot un-see it.

We’re not quite sure what is happening with this rug, but we have to admit it is most peculiar. The true point of the post was for her to promote the skirt, which is made by her personal brand G. Label. As you would expect, it is available on the Goop website. Gwyneth would probably prefer that you take a closer look at the skirt, so you can do that if you’re so inclined.

What do you think of her rug situation? We know that we shouldn’t care as much as we do, but we have no shortage of questions. Be sure to let us know more about your takes on her rug, skirt, or otherwise.
