Gwyneth Paltrow, the academy award winning actress, is receiving a lot of flack for a candid video showing her riding a Vespa scooter in Los Angeles.  Paltrow narrowly escapes colliding with a school bus while riding her Vespa while her 9-year old daughter, Apple, is on the back.  People are saying she acted foolishly since her daughter was on the back of the Vespa.  You can see the video below

What do you think of Gwyneth Paltrow’s maneuver in the video?  The video quality isn’t great but the school bus braked just before a collision occurred with the pair.  Considering that on scooters and motorcycles you have zero protection in an accident, did Paltrow act foollishly since her daughter was on the scooter?  Let us know below.

It should be noted that just behind Gwyneth Paltrow 40-year old actress her husband Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay, and the couple’s son 7-year old son Moses were trailing behind on another Vespa scooter. 

In my opinion what people should be really be asking… why did she name her daughter “Apple?”
