Gwyneth Paltrow is being criticized after she decided to only pay tribute to the male victims of the Orlando gay massacre. The Oscar-winning actress posted a picture to Instagram from her ex-husband’s show with Coldplay at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

Rainbow confetti drifted over the crowd in memory of the 49 people shot dead in the attack at LGBT club Pulse. Paltrow wrote: ‘Rainbow cloud of confetti during #everytearawaterfall made my heartbreak again for the beautiful men of Orlando who senselessly lost their lives.’

Seven women and 42 men were killed in the attacks last week. ‘Because only men are gay right,’ one comment left by a fan pointed out. Paltrow then edited the post for it now to read ‘…heartbreak again for the beautiful men and women of Orlando.’ The only problem then was that fans also pointed out the Coldplay song is actually ‘Every Teardrop A Waterfall’ not ‘Every Tear’
