Kim Kardashian/Twitter(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian is facing backlash from her fans over a photo she posted of a gun just weeks after pledging to stop gun violence.

The reality star posted a photo to Instagram last weekend of a diamond-encrusted gun. She quickly deleted the photo, but British tabloid The Sun and other outlets picked up the photo (see photo here).

Kardashian’s publicist did not immediately respond to questions about the photo. But some of her fans came to her defense.

On Jan. 14, one month after the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., Kardashian vowed to help reduce gun violence.

“Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me at ,” she tweeted.

In November, she shared a photo on Instagram of her shooting a gun with the caption “Bang bang.” Last June, she posted a photo of a gun designed by YSL with the same caption.
