A civil trial involving Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow began last week in Park City, Utah, for an alleged 2016 ski collision at Deer Valley Resort.

Terry Sanderson, a retired optometrist, claims Paltrow crashed into him on a beginner run at the resort that left him with broken ribs and a brain injury, per the Deseret News. Sanderson is seeking $300,000 in damages.

The high-profile case has picked up a lot of public attention due to Paltrow, who is known for her lifestyle blog Goop and for starring in the “Iron Man” franchise. Now, fans have a lot to say about the trial — from comments on Paltrow’s outfits to comparing the actress’ testimony to a “Saturday Night Live” skit.

Here are the best public reactions to Paltrow’s Park City trial.
