Kim Kardashian caused a stir last Saturday when she posted—and almost immediately deleted—a photo of a bejeweled revolver on Instagram, according to the New York Daily News.

"You have too much influence to be this blind and ignorant. Innocent children and people still die even if the gun is pretty," a follower reportedly tweeted back at her after the photo was posted.

“With all the power to influence people that you have, you decide to post gun's pic??? how low is that???” wrote another.  

Why all the drama? Well, not only is gun violence a seriously hot button issue these days, but Kim did take a very public stance against gun violence after the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. "Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me at http://www.sandyhookpromise.org" she wrote in January.

We have to agree, Kim, that those are some mixed messages. What do you think? Was Kim’s photo in poor taste?
