It's very rare when Gwyneth Paltrow issues a response to critics.

She has received her share of critics since launching her lifestyle site in 2008. She has been slammed for selling expensive gift guides and offering pseudo-science advice to promote her products.

The Goop founder is now clapping back at critics who slammed her vaginal jade eggs.

In a new blog post titled "Uncensored: A Word From Our Doctors," Gwyneth Paltrow's doctor claims the eggs are totally safe for women. This is a response to ob-gyn Jen Gunter, who wrote her own blog post in January about Goop selling the $66 vaginal jade eggs.

"The only thing your post got right is to check with your doctor before using one," Gunter wrote. "So let me give you some free advice, don't use vaginal jade eggs."

Goop responded to the backlash on Thursday, July 13. Paltrow tweeted out a link to the brand's statement along with Michelle Obama's iconic Democratic Convention quote, "When they go low, we go high."

"As goop has grown, so has the attention we received," the post stated. "We consistently find ourselves to be of interest to many – and for that, we are grateful – but we also find that there are third parties who critique goop to leverage that interest and bring attention to themselves."

The post went on to describe Gunter as a "San Francisco-based ob-gyn/blogger," who Goop claimed, "has been taking advantage of the attention and issuing attacks to build her personal platform – ridiculing the women who might read our site in the process."

Goop's blog post ended with responses from two of her doctors, Steven Gundry and Aviva Romn. Gundy criticized Gunter's writing before listing off his credentials, adding that he's never "dropped" an "F-bomb" while speaking with a "discussant."

"I have been in academic medicine for forty years and up until your posting, have never seen a medical discussion start or end with the “F-bomb,” yet yours did. A very wise Professor of Surgery at the University of Michigan once instructed me to never write anything that my mother or child wouldn’t be proud to read. I hope, for the sake of your mother and child, that a re-reading of your article fails his test, and following his sage advice, that you will remove it."

Gwyneth Paltrow has previously defended Goop from critics. She even included some of her own F-bombs into her arguments. At the latest Fast Company magazine of the Meeting of The Most Creative Minds event, she argued that "If you want to f*** with me, bring your A game," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm interested in criticism based on fact, not on projects," Paltrow said.

Scientists have called Paltrow out for claiming that her stickers can heal your body. She also has been slammed for advising women that they should put glitter in their vagina to make it look and smell more pleasant. Of course, Gunter fired back with another blog post on her website.
