With the nation having something of a gun control cris, it probably wasn't wise for Rita Ora, Cassie and Adrienne Bailon to pose with guns in an Instagram photo. Even if they were just gold replicas.

"#rockabyeangels @cassiesuper @adrienne_bailon #fakegoldguns of course!" Ora captioned with the photo, channeling "Charlie's Angels."

The gold guns were presumably just going along with the theme of Cassie's new mixtape RockaByeBaby, wherein on the cover art she clutches a gold gun. The title itself is culled from a scene in the film New Jack City, which if you aren't familiar with, you should probably go watch.

But younger fans, less familiar with the film and not in on what the photo was all about, were less than enthused.

"Lets promote gun crime. #dickhead #stupid #dumb #unnecessary #notcool #thinkaboutwhatyouredoing #influential #useyourpowerwell," one commenter (angedee26) wrote. "Your sooooo cool, NOT! Stop trying to be a gangsta rita & most of all stop promoting gun crime."

"@ritaora you are an idiot," another (mitchacarter) wrote. "Young children look up to you. Fake or not, promoting guns to look 'cool' is totally out of order."
