Armenian Group

SLAMS Cosmo

Over Kim K Cover

4/11/2011 7:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The largest Armenian group in America is lashing out at Cosmo for featuring Kim Kardashian on the cover of their Turkish edition ... calling the move "disrespectful" to Kim and "all Armenians."

Armenian National Committee of America
Aram Hamparian -- executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America -- tells TMZ, "It's disrespectful to Kim Kardashian and to all Armenians for the publishers of Cosmopolitan to use her image, without her permission, on the month we mark Turkey's genocide against the Armenian people."

Hamparian continues, "Instead of trying to turn a profit in Turkey by callously featuring a cover photo of a descendant of Armenian Genocide survivors in its April issue, Cosmopolitan should find creative ways to educate its readers about the Turkish government's shameful effort to cover up this atrocity."

Kim gave Cosmo permission to run the cover. She personally "okay'd" every cover. Kim K is lying to you when she says she did not.

Kim is a powerful woman in the media, lies are part of her job.

Didn't give permission? Uh, she did a photo shoot with Cosmopolitan for them to use in their international issues. That right there implies permission.

Now, whether or not it was in bad taste is another question.

I'm Armenian American, my parents were born in the US, grandparents came over 90 yrs ago.. I've been waiting for the ANCA to condemn Kims show on E for making fun of Armenian People and stereotyping them as a bunch of foreigners who only live in Glendale in Ca, And also to condemn Kim for saying she has a Big butt and boobs and is hairy because she is Armenian. How come ANCA says nothing about that?
Really ANCA is sticking up for an Armenian who had sex on tape with an African-American?

Kim and her Mom probably oked the cover?

This twit made a public sex tape with an African, my guess is she cares nothing about Armenian heritage or Armenian genocide. What a hypocrite. She a;ready proven she's pro destruction of the Armenian diaspora.

Kim Kardashian doesn't need any help to be disrespected... she disrespects herself quite well.

Armenians are pretty hypocritical. Go to Little Armenia and you'll see how they treat their own community in Los Angeles

Kim K is a huge hairy attention seeker. She authorized this for money. Now she is feeling the backlash. Seriously, go make another sex tape Kim. See you twice a week walking into the hair removal place.

They should be upset with Kim not Cosmo. Where was her Mom-ager? Shouldn't Kris have read the contract? Stupid is as stupid does...

Here we go, EVERY YEAR, ARMENIAN DIASPORA PULL THE SAME CRAP!

!!IN REALITY, IT IS US TURKS THAT ARE OFFENDED BY THIS COVER!!

Every single year, around this time-WITHOUT FAIL- armenians pull the same crap! They use their celebrity to spread FALse propogandas!

1- Ottoman Empire consisted of many etnicities, Turks and Armenians included but not limited to

2- When Turkey was attacked, Armenians who have saught independence from Ottoman Empire, BETRAYED THEIR OWN COUNTRY and helped enemy. Armenians who were armed by enemy attacked Turks from within! They let us down when we needed them the most: during WAR!

3- Goverment confiscated their weapons, and DEPORTED ARMENIANS! Mind you, government barely had money for war. Due to harsh desert conditions (they were on foot), disease and hunger, they died! OTHER CIVILIANS (Turks, Kurds, Greeks etc) who were attacked by Armentians DID fight back, it was CIVIL battle, NOT governement ordered! In this war, Turks, Greeks, Kurds, Armenians died!!!! But it is ONLY armenians that cry like a Bi#ch without mentioning how they betrayed their OWN country!

4- Since then, Turkey asked on three occasion for Armenians to open their historical archieves and let an INDEPENDENT PANEL (consisting of countries who weren't part of the war and thus, unbiased) to evaluate the archieves! TURKEY'S ARCHIEVES HAS BEEN OPEN! Armenian archieves are NOT open! They REFUSE to open theirs! They use fake pictures from OTHER genocides to spread this propoganda and WER ARE SUCK AND TIRED OF IT!

5- The new generation of Turkey extended an olive branch to Armenians but they insist on throwing mud at our names every year and it is DISGUSTING!

5- Instead of laying under this basketball player to that one, Kim needs to FOR CHANGE, read a book, have her reps do a diligent research next time then open her ignorant mouth!

"This is the claims "genocided Christians, genocided Armenians". What is your claims based on? This is a very ugly accusation! In front of me is Armenian Secretary of State. I invited Armenians in 2005, and Now (2007) I reiterate this: WE OPENED OUR ARCHIEVES! So far, we have over 1 million historical do***ents that supports OUR claim (no genocide). IF THEY HAVE ANY, we invite Armenia to also open their archieves, and lets form an INDEPENDANT panel of archeologs, historians, forensic scientists, legalists...and them them evaluate. Let them gather do***etns from OTHER COUNTRIES TOO. ONLY THEN, let us, the politicians, sit down and talk. But without such efforts, spreading propoganda such as "armenians are genoicided" aimed to accuse Turkey is UNACCEPTABLE! Otherwise, Amrenians can keep on spreading false propogandas by buying sympathy from Christians, it won't change the outcome, we will NOT admit to something we did NOT do"- TURKISH PRESIDENT ON ARMENIAN "GENOCIDE"
