An image of a young man with his arms outstretched in front of a gun on the beach at the New Jersey shoreline has made the rounds on social media, and has caused some controversy.
The image shows a young, bald man with the words “I don’t shoot” written across his chest in a language known to many in New Jersey as “hottie” or “bitch.”
The photograph, which was taken by photographer Ryan Lott, has been shared more than 9,000 times.
The images of the man in the image are also accompanied by the caption “Bitch!”
“I think the irony is that the image is very much based on the story of a guy who, in this particular case, has a gun,” Lott told CNN.
“I just think that it’s an unfortunate juxtaposition of two stories that is going to cause some people to take a negative view.”
Lott said the image was taken at a beach where a gun was being sold on the sand by a man named Robert, who Lott described as “a young man.”
Robert is a convicted felon who has a history of domestic violence, according to his criminal record.
He is also accused of shooting and killing his girlfriend in 2015.
“It’s definitely a bad image, and it’s definitely not something that you want to see,” Litt said.
“But it does have a story that’s quite telling.
It’s a very real story.”
The gun owner, who is also named Robert in the images, did not respond to CNN’s request for comment.
Lott’s photo is the latest to make the rounds of social media after another picture emerged that featured a young black man holding a handgun.
That photo was taken in New York City’s Central Park and shows a man holding what appears to be a Glock 17.
The photo has been widely shared on social networks, including Instagram, and prompted a Facebook post from the owner of the Instagram account that featured the image.
The caption read: “This is a Glock I purchased a year ago.
The gun is the exact same gun I used to shoot my girlfriend.
It was a year and a half ago, so it’s not exactly new, but it’s a Glock.”
The caption was removed from the photo, but the post was still shared more recently than the original.
“When it comes to police brutality and police shootings, the photo of an African American man holding up a Glock does not seem to be new,” the post read.
I hope it makes people realize that it is not just white people who have guns.” “
For the first time, I am seeing a picture of a black man with guns.
I hope it makes people realize that it is not just white people who have guns.”
