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.
Kim kardashian just uploaded a picture of a diamond gun to Instagram, c'mon Kim really? After recent events you choose now to upload that?—

Kim Kardashian is quite dense, isn't she? Pledging to support the gun control movement and then uploading pictures of designer handguns…—

Kim Kardashian is getting fatter and stupider. Posing with a picture of a diamond encrusted gun a week after she signed the SandyHook pledge—

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).
