The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star uploaded the picture to Instagram alongside the caption: "About to go gucci maaannnnnn. #MovieSet#JustDifferent @frenchmontana."
French Montana reposted the image to his account with the message: "Bang, bang."
While Khloe was quick to assure fans that French Montana's weapon was just a toy and the photo was taken on a film set, many pointed out this maybe wasn't the best message to be sending out to young fans…
One wrote: "Didn't expect this from Khloe. Bad image. You have a lot of young girls that look up to you. This is not a good look."
Another said: "Not a fan [of] guns. Movie set or not."
A third weighed in with: "You can do better then that. Not a good image for you babe."
Another shocked fan, posting under the name erica.ayala, shared a lengthy message to Khloe, saying the image was inappropriate, particularly in light of the Nigerian schoolgirls still missing at the hands of Boko Haram.
"Khloe, really .... Why ? This is an awful image. To have a man pointing a machine gun towards you ? Even having such a gun in your presence is showing such lack of respect. You are sending a horrible message... Think of the 200+ girls that have been taken by force and machine guns by violent men. Tonight, they are still gone and living under a gun. In fear, scared, missing their families.
"You are a role model to women, we love for that. You bring a sense of comfort to people you don't even know. A blessing to so many. I hope you consider removing this before morning. It really is a hurtful image."
Khloe has yet to respond.
