Pink’s husband Carey Hart is encouraging victims of the California wildfires to defend their properties from looters by using their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Hart wrote on Instagram Tuesday morning: ‘It’s unfortunate that some people take advantage of others in a crisis. While the Malibu fires have been burning, some locals have been fighting off and defending their property against the fires.
‘There have been sightings of looters breaking in to homes. Well, if you are a looter, think twice if you are heading back into malibu (sic). #DefendYourLand #2ndamendment.’
The former professional freestyle motocross competitor’s warning was posted alongside a black and white photo of a group of men holding firearms with a sign that reads: ‘Looters will be shot on site.’
It is unclear when the photo was taken. The corner of the sign says: ‘PDC Posse.’

At least 435 buildings north of Los Angeles were torched by wildfires that forced the evacuation of 250,000 people in Southern California over the weekend.
The statewide death toll from wildfires over the past week in California has reached 50 – 48 who died in the Camp Fire which torched the town of Paradise, and two who died in the Woolsey fire which burned through Malibu.
As firefighters continue to battle the Woolsey Fire, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday that it was dispatching teams of law enforcement officers to help handle looting in evacuated neighborhoods.
‘We have experienced some looting activity during the past two days. Southeastern Ventura County is within a declared disaster area. People need to stay out of the area to let public safety crews do their work,’ the sheriff’s department said in a press release.
‘People found in areas where they do not belong will be contacted by law enforcement and may be arrested.’
Two people have been arrested for looting in Ventura County as of Tuesday afternoon.
Several of the communities evacuated, including Malibu and Calabasas, were home to high-profile celebrities including the Kardashians, Miley Cyrus and Gerard Butler.
Pink and Carey Hart were also among those forced to flee their $110million home in Malibu, which is believed to have survived the wildfires, which torched nearly 100,000 acres.
