(Newser) – It's usually Pink who's making headlines, but the pop singer's husband has found his way to more than a few over to his response to the California wildfires. Per ET.com, Carey Hart is the center of new controversy over a photo he posted on Instagram Tuesday showing a group of men—most with their faces covered—locked and ostensibly loaded with a variety of firearms. "There have been sightings of looters breaking in to homes," the caption reads. "Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into malibu." Hart included the hashtags #DefendYourLand and #2ndamendment.

The men in the photo are seen standing behind a sign that reads: "Looters will be shot on site [sic]." Pink has also been sharing her thoughts about the fires on social media, though hers lean more toward gratitude than vigilantism, per PopCulture.com. "Just need to say THANKYOU to all of the firefighters. All of the first responders. All of the helpers," she tweeted Friday. "The thing to look for in tragedy is all of the helpers. We're all so grateful for your bravery and selflessness." TMZ reports that the couple had to vacate their home in Malibu as a result of the fire, though the structure was apparently spared by the flames. (Some celebrities didn't fare so well in the fires.)
