    Justin Bieber Poses With Fake Gun, Sparks Real Controversy

    Justin Bieber, Twit Pic Twitter

    Justin Bieber's hindsight is probably 20/20 on this one.

    In a photo taken by an actor on the set of Selena Gomez's upcoming flick Feed the Dog, the Biebs was snapped posing with a fake gun and pointing it at the actor's dad.

    And Gomez was right there for the photo op, smiling in the pic.

    After the photos were posted to the Twitter account @HechosSMGomez, the "Girlfriend" crooner received a slew of criticism for the gun pose-off, with folks around the web saying the snaps were "irresponsible," among other things, in light of the recent mass shootings at the Empire State Building and the Dark Knight Rises screening in Colorado.

    "Guns are on everyone's mind as a serious crisis in Canada and the United States. Everyone, that is, except maybe Justin Bieber," a writer from Canada's Globe and Mail wrote.

    "Justin, whether you like it or not, you're a role model. And millions of fans, 27 million on Twitter, are following your every move. You have power in this industry, and holding a gun in jest is just plain foolish," a writer at Hollywood Life declared.
