Kim Kardashian has been taken to task for her support of executed murderer Troy Davis by an angry Twitter.com follower.
The socialite was among a group of celebrities urging Georgia officials to scrap Wednesday night’s execution, and she tweeted her relief upon hearing that Davis’ ultimate death sentence had been delayed.

She wrote, “There’s still hope! The Supreme Court has delayed Troy Davis’s Execution for 1 hour to review his case!!!”

But the delay was short-lived and Davis, who was convicted in 1991 for killing an off-duty cop, was administered a lethal injection and died at 11.08pm local time.

As the news of the execution broke, Kardashian tweeted, “Such an injustice!!!! Troy Davis was executed! My prayers are with the Davis Family! #RIPTroyDavis.”

But not all her followers appreciated her sentiments – @kbeanie83 raged, “@KimKardashian Troy Davis is a guilty piece of s**t, how can you support him? Like father like daughter apparently!”

Kardashian’s late father, attorney Robert, represented O.J. Simpson during his mid-1990s murder trial.

The socialite’s only response to the terse tweet: “WOW”.

It was a bad start to Thursday for Kardashian – she also revealed via Twitter.com that sister Kourtney had given her the flu.
