Kim Kardashian may have broken the internet, but Mischa Barton just pissed off the internet. The former ‘O.C.’ star posted an insensitive bikini pic to mourn the death of Alton Sterling, and now, she’s getting dragged for making such a silly decision.
Well, this is awkward. Like many celebs, Mischa Barton, 30, took to Instagram, following the death of Alton Sterling, to call for more gun control in America. But what she failed to do was post a sensitive pic with her caption. Instead, she posted a picture of herself in a bikini, so the Internet went HAM on her.
“I’m truly heart broken to watch videos like the #altonsterling execution. This may have been going on forever in the United States but thank god the pigs get caught on camera now. Its unthinkable and an embarrassment to America. The country I was brought up in. Somebody make change. We need gun control and unity. And a real President so think about that when this election is around the corner. The world is a precarious place right now.#stop #reflect and #act appropriately,” Mischa wrote in the caption of a now deleted Instagram post. And her words were great, but it was the photo that seemed super inappropriate.
In the picture, Mischa could be seen drinking a glass of wine, leaning against the railing on a yacht, while sailing through the blue waters of the French Riviera. “The world is a precarious place right now,” she said, but her world looks anything but precarious. In fact, the Internet went wild when they saw her post, and they slammed the former TV star on Twitter. See their messages below.
I don't think Mischa Barton could have picked a worse photo to showcase her solidarity. pic.twitter.com/vHkeGKuUtQ

Can you imagine the conversation between Mischa Barton and the photographer to shoot her little sad pose? Just imagine that.

I wanna clown Mischa Barton but at least she's not hitting us with the "all lives matter" tweets like some of your favorite black rappers

So is Mischa Barton inviting all black people to safety on her yacht?!? Isn't this how Roots miniseries started? https://t.co/1klipLTxwG

Mischa Barton chiming in on racism while on a yacht is the most 2016 thing of 2016
