Kim Kardashian is sending mixed messages — or at least tweeting them. On Feb. 5, she seemingly forgot about all the supportive statements she made towards the Sandy Hook community when she tweeted out a picture of a diamond-encrusted handgun, as if it was a nice new necklace. Kim K, what are you thinking!?
A hypocrite’s a hypocrite — even if it has a lot shiny diamonds. Kim Kardashian, 32, is learning that the hard way after alienating fans with a Twitter photo of a blinged-out designer handgun — which has since been removed.
Kim Kardashian’s Sandy Hook Support
In the wake of the horrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Kim admirably spoke out in support of the Newtown, Conn. community. In mid-January she signed the gun control and anti-violence petition, the Sandy Hook Promise, and tweeted about it, saying, “Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me.” It was a great example of a celebrity standing up for their beliefs and using their large audience for a good cause.
But now she’s gone and thrown all that goodwill away!
Kim K’s Gun Tweet: Twitter Reacts
Kim K’s followers were outraged at Kim’s obliviousness and hypocrisy, and many expressed their displeasure. One commenter said, “Kim Kardashian is quite dense, isn’t she? Pledging to support the gun control movement and then uploading pictures of designer handguns…”
Several others commented using the hashtag, “CLUELESS.”
And who can blame them? The nonchalant way that Kim uploaded the photo as if it was a toy, or just another item in her jewelry box, is shocking and unfortunately misinformed. Her tweet also glorifies guns and diminishes the seriousness of gun violence. Less than a month ago, Kim was fighting the problem — now she’s part of it.
She’s Done Something Like This Before
What may be even more shocking — this is not the first time that Kim has uploaded a picture of a designer handgun!
Kim K can’t have it both ways — she can’t support the gun control movement and also act like some guns are just for fun at the same time.
