Brielle denied that her parents’ gift, a custom rose gold Glock 43, was bad timing, even though she received it just two weeks after the school shooting that killed 17 in Florida. “Dad Kroy Biermann bought it before and had it custom made…It took awhile,” Brielle insisted.

Brielle showed off the gun on social media, and fans slammed the family for the timing of the gift. “After everything that happened in Florida, this is just a disgusting choice of gift,” one person commented on Twitter.
