Gwyneth Paltrow's choice of aviator glasses during her court appearance has drawn comparisons to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer by trolls. Paltrow is currently facing a lawsuit in Utah related to a skiing accident in 2016 that caused permanent brain damage to a man. Despite the severity of the case, spectators watching the trial on TV seemed more preoccupied with Paltrow's fashion accessory.
1. The Social Media Commentary Was Gold
The resemblance of Gwyneth Paltrow's glasses to those worn by Jeffrey Dahmer sparked a significant amount of discussion. "Gwyneth Paltrow is literally going for the #Dahmer look at this ski accident trial… wtf? Not very on brand for @goop," one person said. Another asked, "Why has she dressed as Jeffrey Dahmer?"
2. The Resemblance Wasn't Lost On Anyone
A story on Good Morning America about the trial attracted similar comments. One person said, "Photos make her look like a serial killer. Geez." Another said, "I like her serial killer vibe." A lot of people talked about the glasses than they did about the trial.
3. Gwyneth Paltrow Is Facing Some Pretty Serious Allegations
Despite the focus on fashion, it's important to acknowledge the severity of the case. Terry Sanderson filed a lawsuit against Gwyneth Paltrow in 2019, alleging that she collided with him while skiing at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah, resulting in a concussion, broken ribs, and permanent brain damage. While skiing accidents may be commonplace, Sanderson holds Paltrow fully responsible for this incident.
4. So, What Did She Do Wrong?
Sanderson has alleged that Paltrow was skiing recklessly, and what's worse, she left him injured on the mountain without checking to see if he was alright or offering any assistance. However, Paltrow maintains that Sanderson was uphill from her and that she did attempt to help. It's difficult to predict the outcome of this case, but one thing's for sure, Paltrow is unlikely to wear those glasses again!
