Rihanna Posts Photos of Guns on Instagram: Has She Gone Too Far? (POLL)

Rihanna's 'Baby'

Rihanna is known for pushing the envelope... but do her latest photos posted on Instagram go too far?

The "Diamonds" singer posted two images – one of her supermodel friend Cara Delevingne and one of an older woman – in which both are wielding guns.

The caption on one of the images reads "thug life," an homage to rap legend Tupac, who was prominent in the gangster rap scene in the 1990s.

But irrespective of the reference, is this too much too soon?

The timing of these photos comes a few weeks after the Connecticut Sandy Hook elementary school massacre.

One upset commenter wrote underneath the photo of Delevingne: "All those children in Connecticut died cus [sp] of guns."

"Think for once for God's sake," the fan went on to add.

Rihanna's Twitter and Instagram aren't new to controversy.

The on-and-off-and-on-again relationship between her and Chris Brown has been widely documented on both social media platforms.

Early in the fall, Rihanna posted a photo of herself hugging Brown and calling him "Baby" while backstage during one of his concerts on the Germany leg of his Carpe Diem tour.

Is Rihanna glorifying the use of weapons or not? Take our poll to weigh in.

    Well she is just being who she is, if people don't like how she expresses and represents herself why go on her twitter or instagram.

    Oh for chrissake leave her alone celebuzz. You know perfectly well the granny picture is harmless fun, and you want to "go hard" on anyone about the model brandishing hardware, I suggest your team finds out who the magazine editor and photographer were. But you won't do that will you? Far easier to get the traffic hits by dragging Rihanna into some sort of contrived "Newtown is on you" meme. Nice 'entertainment journalism' if you can stomach it.
