Kim Kardashian Gets Political In Response To Paid Ad WSJ Ran Denying Armenian Genocide

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Reality television star Kim Kardashian is getting political.

The 35-year-old Kardashian took out a full-page, paid advertisement in the New York Times Saturday.

In it, she denounced the Wall Street Journal for running an ad paid for by Turkic Platform denying the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians in the year 1915.

In the article titled, “Genocide Denial Cannot Be Allowed,” Kardashian writes:

“My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press … but when I heard about this full-page ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal denying the Armenian genocide, I couldn’t brush it off.”

At the Armenian Consulate in Glendale, several Armenian protesters gathered to voice their concerns over corruption in the Armenian regime.

Their take on Kardashian’s advertisement?

“My first reaction … she’s right on point,” said one man, while another said: “Media should be careful in what they print, what message they are trying to give society.”

The advertisement mentioned the WSJ’s response was, “We accept a wide range of advertisements, including those with provocative viewpoints.”

Back in April, when the ad surfaced in the WSJ, Kardashian took a similar stance.

Coincidentally, monument in remembrance of the Armenian genocide was unveiled Saturday in downtown LA’s Grand Park.

      You want to know another thing about Transgender people. Well, you pu$sies think you need so much protection from me when I already get paid more than what most of you’ll ever see with or without these people. Jail is punishment, but constitutionally it can’t be “cruel or unusual,” so every time you brain dead pu$sies give in and vote for more tough on crime laws check from where the “ferry dust” is coming. Transgender is not sexual deviance, know your terms, dumba-$ses.
      I’m MIKE, the Original Internet PU$SY B!TCH, and I approve this message.
