Kerry Katona was the victim of unfortunate timing when she posted a photo of her daughter using a toy gun to Twitter in the wake of the Paris terror attack.
After a barrage of negative reaction to the image, which shows her 18-month-old daughter Dylan-Jorge pointing the gun from behind a door, Kerry apologised for the move.
She deleted the image and tweeted, "Would just like say sorry for the pics of my little girl playing cops&robbersguess I just just didn't think of the timing".
She added, "I have taken them down! And on my children's lives they were not by any means to hurt or upset anybody! Just a mum showing off her baby girl".
Several other celebs faced backlash online for their tweets following the attack, which has so far claimed the lives of 150.
Comedian Jason Mansford's Facebook profile was deactivated after he posted a message using expletives and condemning the suicide bombers as "murdering cowards".
He has since defended his post saying he was "sharing [his] opinion like everybody else" and some of his fans have shared the full post on Twitter to show their support.
Former X Factor winner Sam Bailey also came under fire for tweeting that the UK should close its borders. She deleted the tweet.
And model and actress Ruby Rose upset some of her fans when she asked them to pray for the world and not just for Paris.
