On March 24, millions of people across the United States gathered for the “March for Our Lives.”
The march was in protest of gun violence and was an attempt to get Congress to pass stricter gun laws in America.
Celebrities also came to protest, and Kim Kardashian, her husband, Kanye West, her father-in-law, and their daughter, North West were amongst those in the crowds.
Kim posted a photo of North on Kanye's shoulders at the “March for Our Lives” protest in Washington, D.C.:
What an amazing day yesterday to take my daughter to Washington D.C. to see our future leaders speak. Having my daughter march along-side her grandfather and parents was a day I hope she remembers forever. I know that the younger generation will vote to change these gun laws that so desperately need to be changed. Hearing these stories yesterday and meeting so many families affected by gun violence was heartbreaking and I hope when it comes time to vote we all step up and vote to protect our children.
The photo has garnered over 2.5 million “likes” thus far, but some of Kim's followers are calling her out for being a hypocrite.
Many wondered whether Kim's push for stricter gun laws includes a plan to ask her security detail to disarm as well:
Which oddly enough, I’m sure you and your family are protected by gun toting security 🤔 lmfao so let politicians and celebrities be protected but let innocent civilians be left defenseless by taking away their rights. Lmao as soon as they give up their armed security I can take this remotely seriously Kim, if only you had a gun to protect yourself when you were robbed in Paris. Rely on guards and policemen and that’s what happens. Had you have been armed you could have saved yourself a lot faster. Let’s start with personal security What if your pack of bodyguards couldn't carry a weapon? Are your bodyguards getting rid of their guns?? I hope things don’t change to much, then what will your bodyguards protect you and your family with??? Smiles? We need our guns. As you travel with your armed security guards #outoftouchwithrealityhollywood What does being trained have to do with it? Do her guards really need guns? Isn't that the goal here, to get rid of guns? So she can have protection, but people like me can't? What makes her life or her kids lives anymore important than mine or my own family?
Whether Kim's security detail is armed has not been confirmed.
