Gwyneth Paltrow has unintentionally sparked a debate about sharing personal photos and information on social media. 

The Oscar-winning actress posted a mother-daughter selfie with 14-year-old Apple on Instagram during the week. The photo showed Apple appearing unimpressed - a reaction that spilled into the comments. 

"Mom we have discussed this," she commented under the snap. "You may not post anything without my consent."

"You can't even see your face!" Paltrow wrote back.
