Gwyneth Paltrow Compares Mean Internet Comments to War

The Backlash Begins Around Gwyneth's Latest Controversial Comments

Gwyneth Paltrow has riled up the world again with her controversial comments, though this time they're not directed at moms. At Tuesday's Re/Code tech conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, Gwyneth likened mean Internet comments to being in the midst of a war. "You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it's a very dehumanizing thing," she said in a speech. "It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it." There was an immediate backlash after her comments hit the web, including the below tweets from former Senator John McCain's wife, Cindy McCain. Last time Gwyneth ran into a blunder like this, she called out to stop the "mommy wars," but she has yet to comment on this situation.

I mean Tom Cruise said something similar and got the same backlash. It's just unfair to sit in your cushy lifestyle and compare cyber-bullying to war. War where people have died, suffered unimaginable physical and emotional wounds. I mean, these things change their lives forever. I get that everyone has their burdens and their struggles but come on, it's NOT the same. And in a world where money makes things happen, where your purse is 3 months rent to someone, where your house can pay off the student debt of 100 college grads (and yet you ask them to donate to this and that cause), where you don't have to worry about what your next meal will be, honey, there are far bigger problems than some off-color comments (that are, I'm sorry, sometimes deserved).

The answer isn't to muzzle her but encourage her to look around and get a friggen clue.
