Another day, another controversy involving someone named Trump. This time, it was not the President who received backlash but his son, Donald Trump Jr.
It all started when Don posted a pic of his 9-year-old son Donald Trump III, posing with a shotgun!
As you can imagine, many social media users did not like the man encouraging his underage offspring to play around with such a dangerous object.
The snap that Don shared on his Instagram account featured his boy holding a double barrel shotgun and looking straight into the camera.
At the time the moment was caught on camera, the father and son were actually on a hunting trip so he must have been giving tips to the child on how to shoot and kill animals.
Sure enough, the caption read: ‘Donnie helping me out in the #duck blind last season. Definitely the best #hunting buddy out there. Get them outdoors early and often… you won’t regret it!!!’
Soon enough, even many of his followers, who usually agree with his views and actions, criticized Don’s decision to give a shotgun to his kid.
‘A gun in a child’s hands… Donny. No./Cute little young man, but not with a rifle in his hands! That’s my opinion!/The point is this country is so divided and posting a photo of a small child with a gun’s classless and is not setting a good example. I am actually shocked that this is a real photo from the Trump family! Awful ~ lost my vote,’ are just a few of the comments Don’s now ex-supporters wrote.
Meanwhile, others did not think the same as they either just praised the cuteness of the child or applauded the fact that he spends time outdoors and likes to hunt.
