‘Somebody’s celebrating with TWO cups of Bone Broth tonight!’ Gwyneth Paltrow spawns slew of hilarious internet gags as she wins $300,000 lawsuit against skier who accused her of crashing into him
- The actress and lifestyle guru won her case against retired optometrist Terry Sanderson on Thursday
- The court triumph spurred a series of memes revolving around the victory and Paltrow’s luxury-forward California lifestyle
- The memes playfully mocked Paltrow’s steady diet of bone broth, poked fun at the GOOP store, and compared the actress to Patrizia Gucci in ski gear
Gwyneth Paltrow’s court victory in Park City on Thursday has already spurred a number of memes online pertaining to her specific lifestyle brand.
One meme posted by an account called vodkalana poked fun at Paltrow’s recent disclosure that she mostly drinks just some bone broth for lunch.
‘Somebody’s celebrating with TWO cups of Bone Broth tonight!’ wrote the account atop a picture of Paltrow laughing on the witness stand.
Another account called Americana Memes posted a picture of the Brentwood Country Mart – where the GOOP store is in Los Angeles – wrote:
‘White Smoke has been released at the Brentwood Country Mart (where the Goop store is) to signify that Gwyneth won her ski case.’
The line makes reference to the papal ceremony at the Vatican when white smoke rises after a group of Cardinals select the new Pope.

A meme-maker joked that Donald Trump had called Gwyneth for advice as the former president faces his own impending legal battle
One compared Gwyneth’s court victory to her 1999 Best Actress Oscar win for Shakespeare in Love
Another poked fun at the symbolic damages Gwyneth asked to receive should she win her case, with a judge agreeing to the amount
A third meme reads: ‘Gwyneth Paltrow on the ski slopes this winter’ and below shows two pictures of Lady Gaga at Patrizia Gucci, smugly sipping espresso in a ski outfit from the film House of Gucci.
Patrizia infamously went on to have her ex-husband assassinated.
One meme-maker was particularly topical, and shared a meme showing Donald Trump apparently calling the actress.
The ex-president discovered Thursday that he is being indicted on fraud charges, and that he will be arraigned in Manhattan next week.
Earlier today, Gwyneth Paltrow won the ski crash case against retired optometrist Terry Sanderson, who claimed she caused the collision in 2016 that left him with lasting brain damage.
Jurors found that Sanderson, 76, was the one to blame for the crash at the upmarket Utah ski resort seven years ago. It took just two hours and 20 minutes for the jury to reach their verdict on Thursday.
Paltrow’s intent expression softened and she looked over at her attorneys with a faint smile, when the judge read the verdict in the Park City courtroom.
As Paltrow left court she touched Sanderson’s shoulder and said ‘I wish you well,’ he told reporters outside the courthouse.
He responded: ‘Thank you dear.’
The decision comes after eight days of live-streamed courtroom testimony that drew worldwide audiences and became a pop culture fixation.
The actress smiled and waved at photographers as she made her way out of court but refused to comment.

Paltrow’s attorney read a statement from the actress outside court.
Stephen Owens, representing the actress, said: ‘We’re pleased with the outcome and appreciate the judge and jury’s consideration.
‘Gwyneth has a history of standing up for what’s right and this situation is no different. She will continue to stand up for what’s right.’
A statement was released by her representatives.
‘I felt that acquiescing to a false claim compromised my integrity,’ Paltrow said.
‘I am pleased with the outcome and I appreciate all of the hard work of Judge Holmberg and the jury, and thank them for their thoughtfulness in handling this case.’
Meanwhile, a deflated Sanderson said he stands by his version of events, despite losing the case.
Asked what he plans to do next, he joked: ‘Maybe Disneyland!’

Speaking outside court, Sanderson’s lawyer Kristin Van Orman said she was not starstruck by Paltrow and added: ‘I’ve been a lawyer for 30 years and juries never surprise me.’
Of Sanderson, she added: ‘He is suffering, he’s a very nice man.’
The dismissal concludes two weeks of courtroom proceedings that hinged largely on reputation rather than the monetary damages at stake in the case.
Paltrow’s attorneys described the complaint against her as ‘utter B.S.’ and painted the Goop founder-CEO as uniquely vulnerable to unfair, frivolous lawsuits due to her celebrity.
Paltrow’s victory and the subsequent memes would have to compete against news that former President Donald Trump was indicted Thursday afternoon by the Manhattan DA.
