Apparently, Kim Kardashian is upset that a picture from one of her photo shoots ended up on the cover of Turkish Cosmopolitan, the country that committed genocide on the Armenian people.
Kim, an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide, recently did an international photo shoot that went to various magazines published by Cosmo, but she didn’t know it would end up on the Turkish version of the mag.
Speaking on the issue, Kim had this to say (via her blog):
“Cosmopolitan Magazine has a number of international editions all around the world that run in various territories, and when I did this shoot for the international covers I had no idea that Turkey was planning to run my story on their cover THIS month, considering Genocide Remembrance Day is this month.
“My Armenian heritage means a lot to me and I’ve been brought up to be incredibly proud of my family’s background and culture so as an Armenian-American woman it is a huge honor for me to be on the first ever Armenian Cosmopolitan cover,” Kim continued.
“I have an amazing relationship with Cosmopolitan Magazine. World-over, Cosmo is known as a fun and inspiring magazine for women of all races, shapes, sizes, regardless of their political beliefs and I really hope that if I can bring awareness to the issue, then this in an accomplishment.”
Cosmo alleges that they let Kim’s people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture — but sources say Cosmo never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps. The sources also say Kim would never have approved the use of her pic in the Turkish version.
Rubbing salt in the wound … April 24 is the day Armenians commemorate the genocide — just weeks after her pic was splashed on the cover of Turkish Cosmo.
