Kim Kardashian sparked controversy Saturday when she tweeted a photo of a diamond-encrusted designer handgun, and the reality star must have realized the irony of her snapshot because she took it down almost immediately.

The picture wouldn't have been such a big deal if Kimmy K hadn't urged her 17,000,000 Twitter followers to sign a petition in January to reduce gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Massacre.

"Today, people in Newtown are making the #sandyhookpromise to reduce gun violence. Sign the pledge with me," she wrote.

Critics were quick to call the pregnant brunette bombshell a hypocrite, and unfortunatelty we'd have to agree!

At least she realized the error of her ways!
