Kim Kardashian signs Sandy Hook, tweets fancy gun photo sparking attacks from followers

Just a few weeks after Kim Kardashian urged her 17 million Twitter followers to sign a pledge to reduce gun violence in the wake of Sandy Hook, the mommy-to-be tweeted a photo of … a gun.


This pretty little gun should never be "Tweeted"

“Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me,” Kim wrote a few weeks ago. 

Now a “Jewel encrusted handgun” has derailed the reality stars efforts for the common good as she tweeted a gun photo and sparked a mass attack frenzy.

“Kim Kardashian is quite dense, isn’t she? Pledging to support the gun control movement and then uploading pictures of designer handguns…,” one follower wrote.

I’m not the only one to find Kim’s photo outrageous: while some of her Twitter followers have come to Kim’s defense, many others are tweeting things like, “@KimKardashian You have too much influence to be this blind and ignorant. Innocent children & people still die even if the gun is pretty.”

Repeat after me, Kim: guns are not cool. We want to limit the amount of gun violence in America, right? Isn’t that what we, your loyal Twitter minions, just promised to do at YOUR REQUEST?

 “@KimKardashian you were ‘devastate’ about the tragedy in Newton but to show us a gun with diamonds its swaaag???”

Kardashian is no stranger to a gun range as she tweeted a photo last November.
