Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson was forced to delete a snap of her new gun tattoo, after she faced huge backlash online.
The singer sparked criticism after she shared a picture of her new ink on Instagram and her page was flooded with comments regarding gun violence.
“(H)ow disrespectful to anyone who’s lost someone through gun violence! It’s not cool in any way Jesy and it’s such a shame,” one fan wrote.

Second one on @jesynelson from @littlemix, thanks as always lovely! . . . #tattoo#tattoolondon#londontattoo#london#blackwork#blackworktattoo#blackworkerssubmission#linework#lineworktattoo#dotworktattoo#dotwork#gabbycolledge#veganink#vegan#smalltattoo#tinytattoo#cutetattoo#flowertattoo#botanicalflower#finelinetattoo#botanicaltattoo#lineworktattoo#wildflowertattoo#guntattoo#littlemix#jesynelson#ribtattoo
“Cute, but why would anyone want a gun tattoo in today’s world. Really?” another commented.
“Totally agree, nonsense tattoo,” a fan wrote.
Although Jesy has yet to comment on the backlash, the celeb deleted the snap from her Instagram and has continued to receive negative attention for the ink.
Piers Morgan, who has an ongoing feud with Little Mix, also hit out at the singer as he tweeted: “So Jesy Nelson from @LittleMix has had a gun tattooed into her ribcage. What a dangerously deluded & dumb thing to do. And they wonder why I call them cynical & exploitative?”

The 53-year-old also slammed Jesy on Good Morning Britain as he sarcastically said: “This great role model to millions of women, who really wants to empower them, has had a new tattoo put on herself.”
“As gun crime in this country begins to tick up,” the host added.
Piers sparked a feud with the girlband last month, when he criticised the stars for sharing a nude snap of themselves on social media.
