(Newser) – Gwyneth Paltrow's latest ill-advised comment, which seemed to compare the traumatic experience of reading mean online comments about oneself to the similarly traumatic experience of war, has made her a new enemy. Cindy McCain tweeted her displeasure at Paltrow's comments Wednesday, then went on HLN yesterday to discuss it even more. "Gweneth [sic] Paltrow is a joke. Her life is like taking bullets for a soldier. What a joke! My 2 sons serving in the military should talk to her," McCain tweeted.

"Perhaps Gweneth Paltrow should go out on patrol with some soldiers. Kind of like a Red Carpet in her mind I guess!" she continued. On HLN, she noted, "It was an ignorant thing to say and certainly a very selfish thing to say. I would encourage Gwyneth Paltrow ... to perhaps meet some of the young men and women who have lost limbs. ... They serve so that people like Gwyneth Paltrow can say the things that she did freely."

Oh my god...really, I don't like GP, but even I didn't bat an eye about her drawing comparisons about war. Cindy is being way too literal. I just went to war with my toddler this morning, Cindy, you have anything to say about that? Really, we should be free to communicate in terms that have several different connotations without everyone getting their panties in bunch. Use some common sense.

Our society loves a scapegoat, and Paltrow seems to be one of our faves right now.

Sindy McCain would do well to keep her trap shut. Sindy is a home wrecker. As John's wife lie critically ill in a hospital bed, Sindy slithered in and satisfied John's "needs". She has no room to find fault with anyone.
