The Paltrow-Martin household is publicly airing a little dirty laundry, and it looks like teenager Apple isn’t scared of calling her famous mum out.

We’ve all had that moment as a teenager when our parents made us want to crawl into a hole and literally die of embarrassment, but when your mum has 5.3 million social media followers, it’s a whole different ball game.

In an Instagram photo uploaded yesterday, Gwyneth shared what looked like some quality mother-daughter time with the world.

The selfie showed the Goop founder side-by-side with daughter Apple, whose face was obscured by over-sized ski goggles.

The caption featured an apple, a ski and a love heart emoji, but it looks like Apple is anything but in love with this particular snap.

It’s pretty clear there’s a bit of a back story to this seemingly-sweet snap; tucked into the comments section is a message from the 14-year-old, and it doesn’t sound like it’s the first time the pair have had this conversation.

“Mom we have discussed this,” Apple wrote. “You may not post anything without my consent.”

In response, rather than appease her daughter,  the actress doubled down: “You can’t even see your face!” she wrote back.

It feels a bit like when your friend would start fighting with their parents while you were over for dinner. Decidedly awkward, but also kind of thrilling.

Apple’s Instagram is set to private and she shares her feed with only 1,211 followers. The daughter of the Coldplay frontman and the Oscar-winning actress clearly values her privacy.

Since posting the sassy comment, her mum has not taken down the photo and doesn’t look like she will any time soon.

Gwyneth has previous shared snaps of her daughter without any apparent issue, but if this post proves anything, appearances can definitely be deceiving.
