Gwyneth Paltrow Compares Negative Internet Comments to War Trauma

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Gwyneth Paltrow is no stranger to putting her foot in her mouth.

Paltrow's "working mom" comments went viral for all the wrong reasons back in March, as the actress unintentionally (we hope) insulted millions of struggling parents. 

Now, she's done it again by likening her distaste for negative online comments to the trauma endured by soldiers who have experienced combat.

"You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it's a very dehumanizing thing," said Paltrow while speaking at a conference. "It's almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing."

Yes...she went there. She compared hate from comment board trolls to the life-altering, psyche-shattering experience of going to war.

In a way, we're actually impressed. We never though Gwyneth would manage to outdo herself in the astonishing insensitivity department. It's not easy to remain so mind-bogglingly out of touch with the rest of the world, but somehow Paltrow manages.

Paltrow, of course, has been in the tabloids recently as a result of her "conscious uncoupling" from husband Chris Martin, an experience the actress would probably liken to a triple holocaust with razor blades on top. 

She seems to go out of her way to alienate her ever-shrinking fan base, but then she wonders out loud why people were upset that her PR team paid People magazine to name Gwyneth the world's most beautiful woman.

Hey, maybe she's the one trolling us! War criminal!

We like the same stuff.

I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.

Just when you thought Gwynie couldn't say something more stupid than her previous statements, she proves us wrong. Seriously, GP, shut up.

If you read it carefully, she didn't say she suffers in the same way that soldiers traumatised by war do - she just compared the way both war and internet hate talk can dehumanise us. That is, forget we're dealing with actual human beings with families and feelings etc. Not so far off the truth. Take note, THG.

It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
