Kim Kardashian is in hot water this morning, after she uploaded a photo of a pink, diamond-encrusted handgun on her Instagram page. Why are people upset about this? Just a couple weeks ago the reality star signed a pledge to end gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The gun is reportedly a .22-calibur revolver with a jeweled handle. Shortly after Kim uploaded the photo, she took it back down. Of course, not before various media outlets could get a picture of it.

“You have too much influence to be this blind and ignorant. Innocent children & people still die even if the gun is pretty,” responded one of her followers, according to ABC. “When everyone is debating gun control, this is what you post – as if it’s just a fun accessory?” tweeted another.

In January, Kardashian tweeted her support for gun control after 26 people were massacred, including 20 children, in Newtown, Conn.

She signed her name to the Sandy Hook Promise, a pledge to “encourage and support common sense solutions that make my community and our country safer from similar acts of violence.”

This isn’t the first time the 32-year-old mom-to-be has posted images of firearms.

Back in June, Kardashian tweeted a photo of a designer handgun plated with the Yves Saint Laurent emblem. The photo was posted shortly after Kris Jenner took Kim, Khloe and Kourtney to a shooting range after one of the family’s Dash stores was vandalized.

READY TO RUMBLE!? Where do you stand on gun control?

owning a gun doesn’t mean you’re going to be violent with it. And the fact that its “pretty” is irrelevant.

It doesn’t sound to me like she really supports gun control, especially after all she did was sign a pledge that “encourage and support common sense solutions that make my community and our country safer from similar acts of violence.” That could mean anything. The NRA also supports “common sense solutions that make our country safer from similar acts of violence”. But I am still wondering why our country is so obsessed over what Kim Kardashian does. If I post a picture of a diamond encrusted handgun, will i also end up in the national headlines?
