    I think she is now self destructing herself with her stupid statements. Its one thing to say stupid and vapid asinine comments but this is getting rage worthy now.

    Hm, I commented on her with my name attached. I just blogged about her statements as examples of poor communication. I could've been a lot meaner, but plenty of people sliced into all that, so no need.

    I'm sure GP doesn't care how she comes across, and I suppose she doesn't have to. Her survival apparently doesn't depend on it. For most of us, that's not the case. Most of us have to remain anonymous (sometimes or all the time ) on the Internet, if we want to express our honest opinions. I'm not even talking about trolling and other insane stuff.

    she's not really comparing it to war, it's just a stupid roundabout way of saying essentially that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Sputnik, what did she mean by "My hope is, as we get out of it, we'll reach the next level of conscience."

    Dealing with trolls will lead her to the next level of conscience?

    Cindy McCain slams Gwyneth Paltrow for comparing online abuse to being soldier | Mail Online

    'Gwyneth Paltrow is a joke!': Cindy McCain slams actress for comparing 'dehumanizing' online abuse of celebrities to being a soldier
    • Paltrow made the comments during a surprise appearance at a tech conference outside Los Angeles on Tuesday
    • The enraged wife of a Vietnam POW and mother of two soldiers showed her disdain for the comparison in tweets posted Wednesday
    • McCain suggested that Paltrow should go out on patrol with some soldiers: 'Kind of like a Red Carpet in her mind I guess!'

    Cindy McCain had some choice words for Gwyneth Paltrow on Twitter Wednesday after the actress used a surprise appearance at a tech conference to compare celebrities ridiculed on the internet to the plight of soldiers going through war.

    Paltrow was outside Los Angeles at Re/Code's Code Conference speaking to Silicon Valley big wigs Tuesday when she made the offhanded remark that has former POW John McCain's wife, who's also mother to two soldiers, so livid.

    'Gwyneth Paltrow is a joke,' McCain balked Wednesday night. 'Her life is like taking bullets for a soldier. What a joke! My 2 sons serving in the military should talk to her.'



    A military mom's wrath: Cindy McCain, wife of ex-POW Senator John McCain and mother to two soldiers (left), has come out swinging over Gwyneth Paltrow's (right) suggestion that actors ridiculed on the internet are like soldiers at war




    Not holding back: McCain's tweets came after Paltrow's comments while speaking at a tech conference. She's was surprisingly uncensored for a politician's wife


    Family affair: McCain's fury was fueled by the fact that her sons John (left) and James (with McCain at right) are both military men


    She had her reasons: John McCain, pictured here with Mrs. McCain at an Arizona Diamondbacks game this month, was an horrifically abused prisoner of war in Vietnam for five and a half years

    It was an asinine thing to say, even for her. It's fine to be oblivious about superficial things, but her head is too far up her own ass on this one. Including her suggestion that we all analyze our motives and internal pain before commenting on a celeb's dress. Because you know, calling a dress ugly is the same as an act of war, I guess.

    "I see myself as a chalkboard or a whiteboard or a screen, and someone is just putting up their own projection on it," she said. "It has nothing to do with me."

    Actually, Goopy, it does. It's ALL about you. For example, have you noticed the entire Internet hating on Meryl Streep lately?

    "Instead of a person adding a vicious, anonymous jab alongside a photo of Goopy in a dress, she hopes that person will ask themselves: 'I wonder what this image represents to me that I feel such a surge of anger?'"

    It represents you, Goopeth.

    The backlash on this is so great that even the Today Show did a segment this morning.

    What I don't understand is, why she didn't just make her point - that dealing with "trolls" and "internet bullies" is an awful, dehumanizing experience.
    People would have understood what she said. Why did she have to go so far as to compare it to the mental/emotional experience of war?

    Was she trying to be philosophical (in her own pretentious, "looks how eloquent I am") way?

    She's trying to be philosophical and reflective. And failing. As much as people say she's not trying to compare herself to common folk, that's exactly what she keeps doing with the examples she keeps pulling. Unintentionally, but still. She needs to stop talking and understand that she should stop defending herself altogether, it's just making things worse.

    Really, celebs shouldn't give a flying fuck about what perfect strangers on the internet say about them. Really, it's irrational.

    There is a horrible Canadian mommy blogger who thinks she's the Canadian Candace Bushnell.

    In her blog she routinely bashes her daughter's teacher, her step-daughters her finance's ex-wife....etc...etc...

    Different posters wrote constructive criticism of her writing and she went bat-s_it crazy. She went out and self published a book (she paid $15 000 to $50 000 to have it published) and wrote how there was a "Mommy Mob" out there out to get her. When in reality it was just normal moms calling her out on her hypocrisy.

    Here is one of her pieces of work if anyone is interested: My Daughter Received Five Regifting Birthday Presents

    Anyway, it just reminded me of Gwyneth who says all these stupid things and then is surprised that people call her out on her words.
