The fancy disposable diaper looks excessive and spread outrageous also of the bad timing of its debut due to the existing infant formula shortage.
Paltrow published a video on Thursday indicating that she is well aware of Goop’s reputation and has utilized it to harass everyone.
Goop has a history of selling controversial and absurd lifestyle items. One of them is their infamous jade “vagina” egg and “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle. There are more of this kind.
“Goop released a premium disposable diaper with a price tag of $120 for a box of twelve, which sparked an uproar,” she said in the video, “Good. If treating diapers like a luxury makes you mad, so should taxing them like a luxury.”
She subsequently stated that “The Diapér” was a hoax intended to incite resentment in order to call attention to another matter.
The description of the video invited viewers to give to Baby2Baby “supply diapers, formula, and other needs to needy families.”
“Despite their fundamental necessity, diapers are not considered an essential item in 33 states,” the caption stated. “They’re taxed as a luxury good. (We priced our fictitious Diapérs at $120 since that’s how much the diaper tax may cost families each year.)”
