Kim Kardashian lashes out against Cosmo

The cover of the Turkish Cosmo above is generating serious controversy over at the Kardashian camp due to some unfortunate historical oversights on the behalf of Cosmopolitan magazine. The controversy stems from a terrible event in Armenian history whereby over a million Armenians were butchered by the Turkish government after the end of WWI - a crime the Turkish government still denies to this very day, despite universal acceptance of this mass murder as historical fact. Kim and her family are descendants of Armenian refugees that came to American following these terrible events for which the term "genocide" was originally coined.

Kim posed for these pictures some time ago and was aware that they were going to be distributed for international publication. However, somebody over in the Turkey Cosmo offices apparently didn't realize the significance of putting a descendant of their genocide on the cover of their magazines. Either denial runs rampant through all parts of Turkish society or somebody over at Cosmo needs to brush up on their history.

It's easy to take pot shots at Kim and her public profile. Yet her awareness of her roots and sensitivity to this still very much open wound in the Armenian culture is admirable.

I know right?!

I bet she didn't even have a clue and was told about this from someone else, then used it as publicity for herself. I doubt she really gives a shit.

Kudos to Kim and family. I'm Armenian, so I know the fucked up history with the Turks, so it's nice to see that despite their general "frivolousness" about most everything in the world (although they do seem to have a tight-knit family), it's nice to see them standing up for their ancestors in such a way. Made my grandma happy, that's for sure!

In this particular case, she's absolutely right to be angry.
