It looks like a professional photo, I wouldn't imagine it was taken in the last 5 days. So not *as* insensitive on her part as it might seem? Personally I think posing with a gun is a bit revolting at any time, but she probably had this pic taken before the tragedy on Friday.
It is the papers, in choosing to print the image now, who are the insensitive @rseholes, IMO. And then to show it to people whose lives have been wrecked in such a way, makes them King of the Insensitive @rseholes.
It was taken before, but Helen put it on twitter on Monday. Her excuse? She was hungover.
There really should be an IQ test before celebs are allowed to open a social networking account.
