Dear Gwyneth Paltrow: STFU

May 29, 2014

GwynnieSometimes I wonder if people give any thought to the words that come out of their mouths. Especially when they are people who happen to be in the public eye and make gazillions of dollars.  Surely such people can afford PR reps to help them craft a string of words to convey their messages to the public while preventing unfortunate mishaps with the spoken word.

Perhaps, Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t have a PR rep.  If she does, indeed, have a PR rep, I would suggest she consciously uncouple fire the incompetent ass that lets her walk around spewing the pretentious, arrogant, narcissistic bullshit that comes from her mouth.

First we had to listen while she bemoaned how hard her life is and that she thought it would be much easier if she were just a regular ol’ working mom so she could do all her stuff in the mornings.  Yeah, Gwynnie, the mornings are super easy on us working mothers.  We can get all our stuff done while we are getting children ready for school and ourselves ready for jobs where we have to punch time clocks and risk losing those jobs if we’re late or God forbid we have to call in because of sick children.  Now she’s bitching about how reading negative comments about herself on the World Wide Web is akin to going to war.  It’s “bloody and dehumanizing,” she says.

I don’t know about you, but my heart is just pouring with sympathy for poor little Gwyneth.  I can’t imagine the horrors her life must present her.  I sure hope she never has to step foot in the real world because I am fairly certain she wouldn’t endure for more than 55 seconds.  Wait, I just perused her Goop website, so let me amend that to 35 seconds.  Because in the real world our recipes don’t include sea urchins and our closets aren’t filled with artisan crafted Guatemalan huaraches or $245 sweatshirts.  I don’t even think I paid $245 for ALL the sweatshirts I’ve ever bought.  Since I was 10.

Being called out for being the pretentious, arrogant ass you are is not bloody and dehumanizing.  Losing your life because you are the wrong ethnicity is bloody and dehumanizing.  A young girl undergoing female genital mutilation is bloody and dehumanizing.  Getting your legs blown off by a roadside bomb is bloody and dehumanizing.  Being physically assaulted because you are a woman, gay, black…is bloody and dehumanizing.

So, in other words, shut the fuck up, Gwyneth Paltrow.
