Green Beret Mocks Gwyneth Paltrow For Comparing Celebrities To Soldiers

As Hollywood grows more and more out-of-touch with ordinary Americans, laughing at all the idiotic things celebrities say has become a national pasttime. Gwyneth Paltrow in particular seems to be a never-ending source of unintentionally funny quotes. After she compared being mocked on Twitter to the horrors of war, a Purple Heart recipient wrote this gem of a letter in response.

“I’d 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 don’t know,” Bryan Sikes began.

Sikes, a Purple Heart recipient, hit out at Paltrow, calling her ‘insecure and mentally weak’ for comparing his own and other service members’ devastating experiences on the battlefield to her life of comfort and leisure – an assertion he described as ‘dehumanizing.’

In 2008, Sikes was injured in Afghanistan in an IED explosion. In his letter, he talks about seeing his friends get killed and lose limbs in firefights…‘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,’ he wrote.

To be fair, reading on Twitter that not everyone loves you probably is traumatizing to people who refuse to work for less than $20 million per year. Good for Sikes for pointing out how ridiculous these people are.
