Actor and television host Mike Rowe honestly responded to a critic who attempted to shame him over his lack of military service.

The “Dirty Jobs” host posted a letter from a woman named Donna to his Facebook account on Monday.

“Mr. Rowe, I was impressed by some of the things you’ve done in your life,” she wrote, “but that came to an end when I discovered that you apparently never volunteered to serve in your country’s military. Why is that?”

Rowe politely replied, giving a refreshingly candid answer.

“I put myself before my country, and pretty much everything else” he wrote adding,  “the honest answer is because I was selfish.”

The response, which follows in its entirety, may have surprised Donna.

Other social media users were quick to support Rowe and turn the tables on Donna.
