Oh, Gwyneth. There she goes again. First she told normal moms that her life is so much harder than theirs because shes a world-famous celebrity.

Now she actually compared having to endure mean comments from trolls online with surviving a war.

via NY Daily News:

You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and its a very dehumanizing thing, the star said. Its almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing … My hope is, as we get out of it, well reach the next level of conscience.

Really? A war? Please tell that to the nations servicemen and women, or tell it to the families of soldiers who have lost their lives in battle. Maybe theyll offer to switch places with you for a day so you can see if that comparison is actually appropriate.

Well one ex-soldier wasnt about to let it slide, and he unleashed a post to set Paltrow straight, using wit, sarcasm, and the hard truth from experience.

Green Beret and Purple Heart recipient Bryan Sikes had by bar the best response. Via Clash Daily:

To Miss Paltrow,

Id first like to start out by saying how terrible I feel for you and all your friends that on a daily basis have to endure mean words written by people you dont know. I can only imagine the difficulty of waking up in a 12,000 square foot Hollywood home and having your assistant retrieve your iPhone, only to see that the battery is low and someone on twitter (the social media concept that you and all of your friends contribute to on an hourly basis to feed your ego and narcissistic ways), has written a mean word or 2 about you. Youve hit the nail on the head, war is exactly like that. You should receive a medal for the burden you have carried on your shoulders due to these meanies on social media.

You said, Its almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing and then something is defined out of it. I could see how you, and others like you in the biz, could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friends shot, blown up, burned and disfigured, or wake up every morning in pain while just starting the day is a challenge. How about our wives? The ones that sign on to be there for us through thick and thin, that help us to shake the hardships of war upon our return? And do all this while being mothers to our kids, keeping bills in order because we are always gone, and keeping our lives glued together. They do all this, by the way, without a team of accountants, nannys, personal assistants, and life coaches. Yeah, reading a mean tweet is just like all that.

You know what is really dehumanizing, Miss Paltrow? The fact that youd even consider that your life as an A-list celebrity reading internet comments could even compare to war and what is endured on the battlefield. You and the other A-listers that think like you are laughable. You all have actually convinced yourselves that you in some way face difficulty on a regular basis. Let me be the first to burst your bubble: a long line at Starbucks, your driver being 3 minutes late, a scuff mark on your $1200 shoes and a mean tweet do not constitute difficulty in the eyes of a soldier.

Understand me when I say this: war does not define me. It is a chapter in my life that helped shaped me. Being a husband and father is what defines me. Remember, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never…be close to what war is.
