The Internet Reacts Hilariously To Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin Splitting Up

“Conscious uncoupling”. Say what?!

2. But it’s OK, because the internet’s reactions have cheered us up no end. From marking Chris’ escape from strict dieting.

6. To commenting on Coldplay’s inevitable new music.

So Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are splitting up. Very sad. Do you think this will make Coldplay worse or worse?

You know that period after a breakup where all you do is sit in the dark & listen to Coldplay albums? It sucks for Gwyneth Paltrow.

10. Some (including Ronan Farrow) made valid points in this sad, sad hour.

Gwyneth Paltrow still knows more about flax oil than you.

But who do Bey and Jay side with in all this?

— Connor Simpson (@connorsimpson)

Is it wrong to find it funny that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have just seperated and they have a child called Moses?

Remember when Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow had the same Sliding Doors hair? That was cool.

I reckon the odds on me and Gwyneth Paltrow finally getting hammered on Sambucca shots this year just rocketed.

16. But most people were mainly interested in the term “conscious uncoupling”.

Question for enemy of the English language Gwyneth Paltrow: If two people fall in love at first sight, do they "unconsciously couple"?

— Kevin O'Sullivan (@TVKev)

21. Even bananas were used to demonstrate the new terminology.

22. But others just couldn’t hide their dismay. RIP Chris and Gwyneth.
