” Professional athletes are no strangers to criticism. In the old days you could yell at the players at the game, but now we have the internet. Now we can insult them quietly and individually on Twitter. So to remind those who write unkind things that players actually see these horrible tweets – here’s an all new special NBA edition of #MeanTweets.”

” If you know Jimmy Kimmel Live you’re probably familiar with Mean Tweets, where celebrities are forced to read all the terrible things people write about them aloud. But when it comes to mean comments, no fans compare to sports fans so we asked some of our favorite college football broadcasters and coaches to open themselves up to the horrors of the internet. This is a special College Football Playoff Championship Edition of Mean Tweets as seen on ESPN before the Ohio State vs. Oregon game featuring Desmond Howard, Rece Davis, Mark May, Lou Holtz, Mark Helfrich, Heather Cox, Brady Hoke, Tim Tebow, Brian Kelly, Jesse Palmer, Jimbo Fisher, Chris Fowler, Scott Van Pelt, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit.

Green Beret Slams Gwyneth Paltrow: There’s A Big Difference Between Real War & Twitter

Doug Giles – Here’s a response regarding our morning’s Gwyneth Paltrow post from my good buddy and Green Beret bad-ass Bryan Sikes:

To Miss Paltrow,

  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. I can only imagine the difficulty of waking up in a 12,000 square foot Hollywood home and having your assistant retrieve your iPhone, only to see that the battery is low and someone on twitter (the social media concept that you and all of your friends contribute to on an hourly basis to feed your ego and narcissistic ways), has written a mean word or 2 about you. You’ve hit the nail on the head, war is exactly like that. You should receive a medal for the burden you have carried on your shoulders due to these meanies on social media.

  You said, “Its almost like, how in war, you go through this bloody dehumanizing thing and then something is defined out of it.” I could see how you, and others like you in “the biz”, could be so insecure and mentally weak that you could pair the difficulty of your life on twitter to my brothers who have had their limbs ripped off and seen their friends shot, blown up, burned and disfigured, or wake up every morning in pain – while just starting the day is a challenge. How about our wives? The ones that sign on to be there for us through thick and thin, that help us to shake the hardships of war upon our return? And do all this while being mothers to our kids, keeping bills in order because we are always gone, and keeping our lives glued together. They do all this, by the way, without a team of accountants, nanny’s, personal assistants, and life coaches. Yeah, reading a mean tweet is just like all that.

  You know what is really “dehumanizing”, Miss Paltrow? The fact that you’d even consider that your life as an “A-list” celebrity reading internet comments could even compare to war and what is endured on the battlefield. You and the other “A-listers” that think like you are laughable. You all have actually convinced yourselves that you in some way face difficulty on a regular basis. 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.

  Understand me when I say this: war does not define me. It is a chapter in my life that helped shaped me. Being a husband and father is what defines me. Remember, sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never…be close to what war is.”

” Some people are cruel and write very harsh things to celebrities on Twitter. What you don’t see when you send a nasty tweet is that it can cause pain. So to raise awareness, and hopefully make people think twice before they post something awful, we’ve once again assembled a group of famous faces to remind everyone that words hurt.
