The 43-year-old actress shared a photo of Coldplay’s concert at Wembley Stadium on Instagram on Saturday.
The image showed rainbow coloured confetti drifting over the crowd in tribute to the 49 people who were killed and 53 who were injured in Orlando, Florida just over a week ago. Gunman Omar Mateen stormed an LGBT nightclub on 12 June in what has been labelled the biggest mass shooting in modern US history.
The nightclub is a well-known gay club in the area and the majority of the victims were members of the local LGBT community.
Paltrow captioned the photo: “Rainbow cloud of confetti during #everytearawaterfall made my heartbreak again for the beautiful men of Orlando who senselessly lost their lives. #orlando.”
A fan immediately commented on the same photo and wrote: ”Because only men are gay, right?“
Paltrow quickly edited her post so it now reads, “For the beautiful men and women”, and the fan also deleted their comment.
A representative for Paltrow did not immediately respond to request for comment.
