Amid gun violence debate Kim Zolciak gifts daughter a gun on her 21st birthday
Biermann has practiced at a gun range, she does not have her license yet.
Kim Zolciak apparently had a different shot in mind when it came to her daughter Brielle Biermann‘s 21st birthday this year.
The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star gave her daughter Brielle a rose-gold handgun for her birthday this year, which hasn't gone down well with a lot of people around the globe.
Brielle Snapchatted an image of the pistol, according to People. “Rose gold gun!!! thanks papa,” she captioned.
TMZ also shared a video of the unveiling. In the short clip, you can hear Brielle ask her mom what she’s going to do with a gun. “You’re moving out so it’s time you figure it out,” says Kim, who adds that “it’s not loaded.”
Though insiders claim Biermann has practiced at a gun range, the gossip site also claims she does not have her license.
Zolciak’s special gift to her eldest daughter comes within two weeks of her announcing that she bought bulletproof backpacks for her younger children in the wake of the Florida shooting, in which 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz allegedly open fired at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people.
“I just asked Kroy (Biermann) what can we do as parents to protect our children every day in this crazy sad world,” the reality star shared on social media.
“He said, ‘best thing we could do for now is get bulletproof book bags’ you know, I just did! It’s better than not having anything at all.”
It’s not the first time Kim’s stirred up controversy about her daughter. There was the time last fall when she encouraged Brielle to flash her breasts on Snapchat. In May, Kim jokingly offered up Brielle for a blowjob to get tickets for John Legend’s show.
Given how there's been an ongoing debate on the perils of gun violence, fans and followers took no time to slam Kim's juvenile move of giving her daughter a gun for her birthday. A lot of them took to Twitter in order to express their views on the outrageous birthday present.
@Kimzolciak What the fu*k is wrong with you giving your daughter a “cute” GUN as a birthday gift?! While our country is mourning the loss of CHILDREN due to firearms? You are the most tone deaf humans ever. #RHOA @BrielleZolciak @biermann71— Walter Sedoux (@WalterSedoux) February 28, 2018
Kim Zolciak giving her “scared” daughter a hand gun when she finally moves out is what is wrong with America. Where is the rationalization? Makes zero sense. 😏— Viva. (@chilerojoviva) February 28, 2018
I have lost whatever little respect I had for Wig Kim Zolciak this week when, in the wake of tragic school shootings, she decides to gift her own kid a gun and have it be posted on social media.— Kennedy Del Rey (@KennedyDelRey) February 28, 2018
