Posted on 02/07/2013 7:17:40 AM PST by Impala64ssa
Reality television star Kim Kardashian is drawing heavy fire for posting a photo of a jewel-encrusted handgun on Instagram just weeks after signing a pledge to reduce gun violence in honor of the Sandy Hook massacre.
Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me at http://www.sandyhookpromise.org, she wrote at the time.
But some are now conflating guns, with gun violence.
Hollywood gossip aficionado Perez Hilton wrote:
Now, Kim has been enjoying the shooting range for years now, and were sure she enjoys feeling like she can protect herself. But this was a clear example of a celebrity forgetting the height of their platform, and the social-impacting consequences that can come with it.
Kardashian has since removed the photo, but this isnt the first time the reality star has posted a gun-related image.
A month before the Sandy Hook shootings, Kardashian apparently shared this picture of herself at a gun range on Twitter:
Kardashian, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West this summer, has not yet issued a public response to the controversy. But shes no stranger to political controversy.
After tweeting that she was praying for everyone in Israel during conflict in the region in November, she was called a disgrace to her people and told that she is the reason at least one Twitter user wants to die.
Some, though, are standing up for Kardashian.
Kim Kardashian posted a pic of a gun on Instagram & now everyone is all pissed off, one person tweeted, according to ABC. I forgot the 2nd amendment didnt count for celebs.
He’s just trying to get his butt kicked by a girl.
He’s shown he folds like tissue paper when socked out by a blindman.
Is it true that the word Armenian “kardashian” translates as “my mamma be a pimp.”?
Except she’s with Kanye, which tells you just about everything you need to know about her qualities.
“Except shes with Kanye, which tells you just about everything you need to know about her qualities.”
Yup. Apparently Kris Humphries wasn’t a big enough douchebag.
“Reality television star” enough said.
I thought Kanye liked gay fish.
Well, if she can’t shoot straight, she can probably blind an assailant with the grip!
Between them and Cher, it doesn't speak well for Armenians, I guess the Turks killed all the good ones off.
I'm sure some have in a smaller way but wholly crap what the Kardashians bought into is crazy.
That just has “accidental discharge” written all over it.
I want one.
That's the BEST WAY!!.........
Kris Humphries...LOL. I always enjoyed seeing my Spartans beat him on the basketball court.
She’s famous for being famous and by posting this you are her minion.
What sex tape? Did I miss one?................
I wondered why Pat and Stu where busy posting pictures of guns on twitter.
Don’t bother. The only thing that separates her from Paris Hilton is that Kim isn’t built like an 11-year-old boy.
