Kim Kardashian Irate Over Turkish Cosmo Cover

by at . Comments

Kim Kardashian is reportedly very upset that a photo of her was used on the cover of Turkey's edition of Cosmopolitan magazine this month.

Her objections stem from her Armenian heritage.

It is a widely-held belief that Turkey was responsible for acts of genocide against the Armenian people in the early part of the 20th Century.

Kim Kardashian, an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide, did an international photo shoot recently that went to various magazines.

That included several owned by Cosmopolitan, but she didn't know it would end up on the Turkish version of the mag, and she's quite upset about this.

Sources say Cosmo let Kim's people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture, but never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps.

Kim would not have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version, according to sources close to her, and it's particularly upsetting this time of year.

April 24, which happens to also be Easter Sunday this year, is the day Armenians commemorate the genocide, and comes just weeks after this release.


I agree 100% with Tracey!! It is important to forgive,but never forget. If one forgets and ignore history nothing will ever be learned and the world will stay the same. One must learn from history in order to move on.


not to sound stupid or anything but whats a Genocide ?

@ Sue First I didn't read that she hated Turkish people. Second what you wrote does sound heartless especially since the Turkish government uses blackmail to try and stop other countries from recognizing the Armenian Genocide. How can you expect a people to forgive when the other group won't acknowledge what happened let alone offer an apology. Also it is great to live in the present but to ignore history means no one will learn from it.I think your statement proves that.


I agree Sue 100% work towards peace. not hate. Ignorance only makes the world smaller.


I think it's time to get over it and move on. I know that sounds heartless, but hatred is toxic to our world. She hates an entire nation for something that happened to her ancestors a long, long time ago. It's time to see all people as individuals, and live in the present. Maybe she could work to IMPROVE relations between the Turkish and Armenian people rather than continuing the hatred and racism.
