Khloe poses with a gun as her rumored boyfriend, French Montana, holds the weapon and she swigs a bottle of champagne. Is this Kardashian sister looking for extra publicity by riling everyone up? According to New York Daily News, the photo was posted on Instagram Monday morning, and some Khloe Kardashian fans are shocked at the picture.
Khloe captions the Instagram:
“About to go gucci maaannnnnn. #MovieSet #JustDifferent @frenchmontana”
French Montana also captions the gun Instagram:
As it turns out, the gun is a prop for a new video French Montana is filming in the Miami area. He and Khloe thought it would be a good idea to pose with a gun and share the picture online. Not everyone is pleased with the picture, so Khloe posted a Bruce Lee quote:
“For it is easy to criticize and break down the spirit of others, but to know yourself takes a lifetime.”
Wetpaint reports the couple snapped the picture on the set of DJ Khaled’s music video for single “They Don’t Love You No More.” As the report notes, the photo still upsets fans who believe it promotes the drinking and gun culture to young fans.
Reactions from followers are disgusted because it shows a sense of disrespect for so many losing their lives to gun violence. Vibe posts fan comments:
“You are a role model!! Alcohol and guns DO NOT MIX”
Another writes to Kardashian: “stay away from that!!!”
“So disrespectful to those who have lost people recently.”
According to Vibe, the Kardashian family isn’t openly supportive of Khloe’s relationship with French Montana. Kris Jenner reportedly feels that “French is bad for Khloe.”
The gun photo isn’t going to help French Montana get on the Kardashian clan’s good side. The family loves publicity, and part of their branding depends on it, but this might not be what they have in mind. After Kim Kardashina’s wedding to Kanye West, reports allege that Kim was ashamed of her brother, Rob, because he put on so much weight. She reportedly felt he was ruining the family name.
Khloe and French Montana have been together a few months and are rumored to be an item. Khloe’s activities since her divorce from Lamar Odom are of intense media interest over who she sees and what she’s doing. Why would Khloe pose with a gun near her and drinking from a bottle of booze to top it all off? Even if it’s all done in fun, for publicity reasons she should know better.
