Veteran Sean Parnell Bashes Celebrities For Response To Manchester Bombing - "Bulletproof Bubble"

The frightening terror attack in Manchester sparked a flurry of reaction on social media, and numerous celebrities were among the many that hopped on to offer up their thoughts. While everyone was obviously shaken by the events, some of the takes offered up by the celebs came across as out of touch. As Fox News shares, former Army Ranger Sean Parnell is among those that feel that way, and he’s sounding off about it.

While the reactions were many, a couple of them stood out and captured a ton of attention.

"the greatest thing we can do is unite as people and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all need to just coexist," said Katy Perry.

“My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this horrific act in Manchester. We need to do better. We need to LOVE ONE ANOTHER,” chimed in Justin Timberlake.

“wishing I could give my friend @arianagrande a great big hug right now... love love love you .... so sorry you had to be apart of such a tragic event! my most sincere condolences to anyone and everyone affected by this horrific attack! all I can do is send as much HOPE & PEACE your way! This MUST end! No more war .... no more innocent lives taken .... L-O-V-E,” added Miley Cyrus.

Those takes are a little too much to take for Parnell, who served his country in Afghanistan. He noted that the celebs are “out of touch,” and he was just getting warmed up.

"It's really easy to say 'coexist' and advocate for open borders when you live in a gated compound surrounded by armed guards and security every day. They basically live in a bulletproof bubble," he said.

While Parnell appreciates the sentiment that love and peace should trump all, he knows there’s a much different reality at play here. Nice thoughts and warm embraces only go so far when we’re talking about a matter of life and death. Someone that is determined to wipe the enemy - as they see it - off the face of the planet is likely not walking around looking for a hug from a stranger. Kind words will not help in those cases either, as someone that has strapped an explosive device to their body is generally not receptive to small talk.

"At that moment I realized there are people in this world that just want to kill you for who you are and what you stand for," Parnell continued.
