Kim Kardashian’s gun photo inspires cries of hypocrisy (and some envy too)

The tweet and its accompanying photo have, not surprisingly, been deleted from Twitter and Instagram, but that hasn’t spared Kim Kardashian from further backlash over her posting of a diamond-studded revolver — less than a month after urging her Twitter followers to pledge to reduce gun violence.

So, is Kardashian’s tweeted photo of a gun hypocritical? In poor taste? Or is it just a photo of a gun? She wasn’t even pictured firing it, like a certain president.

Plenty thought it was a dumb move, even by Kardashian’s standards.

Not everyone was so quickly offended, though.

In November, Kardashian deleted a tweet offering prayers to the people of Israel (as well as a follow-up tweet asking for prayers for Palestine).


Clips in my pocket: Rapper Soulja Boy holds personal gun show on Instagram, followers not impressed

  • Ken Alan Draper

    give me a simple M1911 .45 cal. pistol anyday. looks don’t matter as much as function. I find the purely functional to be prettier then the gold gilded & gem encrusted firearms.

    • Jack Deth

      Definitely agree, Ken.

      What you don’t drop with one shot can be easily pistol whipped.
      Much more utilitarian. Big fan of the .45 ACP Commander.

    • MovingToNevada

      I personally own a Colt Defender too (among other .45s)

  • Love of Country

    Some forms of stupidity ie hypocrisy will just leave you speechless.

  • Andrew McGibbon

    I’m betting every celeb who signed that pledge secretly owns a gun. And has a ready made excuse for when they are found out.

    • Lord Foggybottom

      They don’t need an excuse because they won’t be outed.

  • CatHerder

    The idiocy never ends.

  • Jack Deth

    Cute looking .22 Long cap gun!

    Where’s its trigger guard?
    Where’s its safety?
    Do her parents know she has it?
    Where and how easily can it be fenced?

    I thought Mattel stopped making “Greenie Stick-On Cap” guns decades ago!

  • Tarantula2

    Nice gun Kim…

  • MovingToNevada

    Nice novelty gun. Kinda reminds me of my Colt National Gold Cup/polished stainless with pearl grips.

  • Tangchung

    Kim’s taken more loads than guns. Her nickname is reload.

    • Joe Zepeda

      oh man! Damn thats good LOL

  • Sasha Williams

    All of these people are jumping to conclusions. IF it is hers, so what? It’s a handgun not an AR-15. There is a HUGE difference between guns people buy for self-defense and the weapons of war tou paranoid righties are so fond of. WHY do you need such weaoonry? Are you expecting 30 people to rush your house? Because if so, you have bigger problems. Probably illegal ones. You people have NO idea what the gun control movement is actually about.

    • Ms Anonymous

      It’s about controlling how and when the people you want to rule are able to defend themselves.

      Don’t worry Sasha, we know exactly what the gun control movement is about. Defenseless subjects vs free citizens.

    • super duper freak

      hehe…you’re stupid.

      Giving KK a run for her money?

    • Lisa Dean

      And you my dear have no clue what “weapons of war” are. Here’s a hint, it’s not an AR-15. Get some gun education before you start spouting the racist remark of “you people”.

    • Jack Deth

      It is not a handgun. It is a derringer. With almost no barrel and a questionable at best cylinder securing device. One of those “dreadful weapons” Maryland tried to get rid of in the mid 1970s with their Democrat backed “Saturday Night Special” ban.

      Unless you jam the barrel into the belly of your target or aggressor. Chances are very good that the bullet(s) will miss. And you will damage your hand in the process.

      BTW: The gun control movement is all about registration, excessive taxation and finally, confiscation!

    • dmacleo

      many derringers use larger round than those evil looking scawy gunz too.

    • kenai

      Finally, at last we may have found the expert who can tell us the functional difference between a ‘sporting’ rifle and an evil ‘assault gun weapon of war’. So, Sasha, libturds are fond of saying ‘Nobody wants to take your hunting guns’ what’s the difference that makes one OK and the other something evil that needs to be banned?

    • bonnieblue2A

      Indeed there is a huge difference, especially in the frequency used in crimes. According to a law enforcement forensics investigator testifying in Bridgeport CT hearings related to the Sandy Hook massacre, those you choose to call “weapons of war” were used in only 1.5% of all the gun related crimes he has investigated.

      The gun control movement is about CONTROL, not safety. It is about bringing the USA in line with those UN member countries whose plutocracies do not recognize the citizens as sovereign over their government. Thankfully, those who founded this Republic and authored its Constitution and Bill of Rights understood that our rights are derived from our Creator and not our government.

      Frankly, it is none of your business what firearms I choose to own. My wants and needs are NONE of your business nor that of your gun-grabbing comrades.

      Oh, and the Derringer, similar to that photo tweeted by KK, is the model of firearm that John Wilkes Booth used to assassinate President Lincoln. Bless your STUPID little pea brain.

  • Maxx

    Congrats Kim! You’ve managed to find something that is shorter than your marriage to Kris Humphries.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Anthony Weiner posted photos of his gun, why not this dope?

  • trixiewoobeans

    ABSOLUTELY they all have guns!

  • patteel

    I like it and I want one.

  • GaryTheBrave

    I would think the diamonds would cut your hand.

  • BeeKaaay

    Leftwingwackos hate the idea of self-defense. They really want all non-Marxists dead.

  • 24fan

    fancy just like her, give me a plain black or a camo colored one anytime

  • Rulz

    “Divorcing, Pregnant with another amn’s child, ”

    Where is this criticism with all the other celebs?

  • Dawn Felton

    She isn’t a hypocrite for signing the Sandy hook promise and owning a gun. Every law abiding cirizen that owns a gun also wants less gun violence. But, we are not willing to have our 2nd amendment rights infringed. Nothing they are proposing will help. Furthermore, for all the gun control liberals, the 2nd amendment is NOT for hunting. Go read up and learn something.

  • torpedoman2002

    If the pressure gets too bad for Kim my daughter said she would take the gun off her hands. However she did say she would sell and buy a semi-auto. Yes, I raised her right!
