Meghan McCain Rips “Haggard” Gwyneth Paltrow as “Wacky, Elitist”

John McCain’s daughter tore into the Goop founder for promoting an unwell “wellness” routine.

Meghan McCain is joining the angry mob of TikTokers against Gwyneth Paltrow amidst bone broth-gate. The Goop founder is being ripped apart by social media upon sharing her “daily wellness detox routine” on The Art of Being Well podcast earlier this week.

Succumbing to the definition of an “almond mom,” Paltrow said she typically starts her mornings with a cup of coffee followed by a bowl of bone broth for lunch. In the afternoons, she tries to get in at least one hour of exercise plus 30 minutes in her sauna before settling down for an early dinner of vegetables.

To which McCain writes in her Daily Mail column: “If what she’s selling is wellness, then I want no part of it.”

The View alum argued that Paltrow’s regime “reads more like the daily activities schedule of a cult” than a healthy wellness practice.

She dissed Paltrow for “her wacky, elite commentary about food,” noting eating disorders are on the rise. According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders (ANAD), 28.8 million Americans will develop an eating disorder in their lifetime.

“Her life sounds like a living hell,” McCain quipped, adding that Paltrow’s celebrity and wealth status allows her to do whatever she wants yet she chooses bone broth. In addition to her diet, McCain suggests Paltrow’s physical appearance could use a little fine tuning, too.

“I rarely speak about other women’s appearances but since she’s putting herself out there, let’s talk about it,” she wrote. In the viral TikTok, Paltrow looks noticeably “tired and haggard, and much older than her 50 years,” McCain pointed out.

“The women I admire in ‘wellness’ aren’t hooked up to an IV bag,” she said in shade of Paltrow’s IV of “vitamins.”

McCain herself has faced backlash for what others consider elites actions and comments, such as the time she suggested she should be among those with immediate access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Her comments during the college admissions scandal also irked people.

As of this writing, Paltrow has not responded to McCain’s column.
