In Hollywood’s latest split, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced they have decided to “consciously uncouple” after 10 years of marriage.

Of course, the public reacted with a collective ‘WTF,’ followed by viral snickering.

Now one of the most trending topics on Twitter, people are using the hashtag #consciouslyuncouple to joke about everything from the poor weather, to work, to high-calorie treats, to binge-watching Netflix.
