Kim Kardashian took out a full-page advert in Saturday’s New York Times attacking those who denied the Armenian genocide, an event that claimed the lives of more than a million Armenians.

This comes nearly six months after The Wall Street Journal published an ad in support of the Armenian genocide denial.

Kim wrote in the ad,

My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press.We’ve learned to brush it off. Lies make good headlines, good headlines make great covers, great covers sell magazines. But when I heard about this full-page ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal denying the Armenian genocide, I couldn’t just brush it off.”

Kim, who is of Armenian descent, has previously raised awareness of the tragedy on the anniversary of the genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Turkish government in April 1915.

The advert read:

For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting and dangerous.

It’s one thing when a crappy tabloid profits from a made-up scandal, but for a trusted publication like WSJ to profit from genocide – it’s shameful and unacceptable.

If this had been an ad denying the Holocaust, or pushing some 9/11 conspiracy theory, would it have made it to print?

Many historians believe that if Turkey has been held responsible for the Armenian genocide, and reprimanded for what they did, the Holocaust may not have happened.

In 1939, a week before the Nazi invasion of Poland, Hitler said, ‘Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?’

We do. We must We must talk about it until it is recognised by our government because when we deny our past, we endanger our future.”

    1.5 million people were killed like how is that brushed off as false. Is it fiction? Gawker and WSJ should better be careful lest the ghosts of victims will use them do brunch. Go Kim Go!

      She’s not as stupid as you think. Someone who turned the exposure as a result of a sex tape scandal to build a multi-million dollar empire for herself and her family is definitely no fool

      Not a fan of how she made her wealth, but I admire her family’s hustling spirit

    Go kimmy go! Show them there’s so much more about you and ‘not just that you belong on the bed’. I love that she’s standing up to what she believes in. Kim is an attention seeker, right! But here, all she’s saying is the Internet is filled with lies and she and her family are no strangers to the lies on the Internet. She did good here, applaud her and stop bringing up her past everytime.
