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."

First of all who cares? Second, how is this disrespectful? If the Turkish hated Armos as the Armos claim they do, why would they want some ugly Armo on the cover of their magazine? Doesnt putting her ugly mug on their cover show they do not have a problem with Armos? They want to sell magazines right? Am I missing something?

So why doesnt Kim post on her site or on twitter about this? How outraged she is and never approved of it?

ANCA doesnt condemn the fact that she stereotypes Armenian people and brags about wearing turkish delight Lipstick? I mean I could see if someone like Serj Tankian was on the cover of the Turkish version of Rollling Stone for April, Kims done nothing for genocide recognition besides 1 or 2 tweets with one sentence and a link to sign a bill.
Has she educated the American fans about it? No

Has she or her family spoke about it in anywhere on TV? NO

Has she ever talked about it on her show? NO

Shes fake and ANCA shame on you!

K Kardashian, an Armenian? I don't think so. She might have a little bit of Armenian blood, but what she has been doing is a all-American act. No one will even think of her as an Armenian! If the Armenian National Committee of America is so concerned about her image, they would have spoken out long time ago when her sex tapes came out! So, don't be such a hypocrite, maybe K has paid you to defend her?

I'm a crazy person...    

THIS IS WHAT ARMENIAN'S ARE PROUD OF....????

A poster calling themselves "Baby K" summed it up best:

==================================================================

KIM K SUPERSTAR
I am 30 years old and act like a vain and self-obsessed 13-year old. My dream was always to become a princess but i became an anal pornstar, but i still think i am a princess.
My body is full of plastic surgery. My boobs, ass, lips ,teeth, cheeks, nose, hair, facelift etc. are all bought and paid for, courtesy of a plastic surgeon. I was also jealous of Paris Hilton and put out a SEX TAPE because she did. I idolized Paris Hilton. I used to hang on her like a koala bear all the time, to get my picture taken by the paparazzi. Until 2007 i did cocaine. I know there are picture proofs but i will deny it forever. My Pimp mother, Kris, fu@ked the poolboy while my father was at work. The result was my pathetic half sister khloe who is a whore, just like me. I am a total and utter disgrace to my late father, who was a lawyer. Whenever my mouth is moving, I am lying as I am INCAPABLE of telling the truth about anything. The way i walk, talk and laugh is fake and if you look into my eyes, you can even see that my soul is fake.
I pretend that if I lie about things, people will eventually believe it.

Although I pretended to be upset by the sex tape, I was the one that sent it to Vivid Entertainment, and they paid me $5 million dollars to expose my nasty self. Ray J had nothing to do with the leaked sex tape. I tricked him into making a porn film with me for distribution.
My former publicist,Jonathan Jaxson, know what happened! He hates me because i went behind his back and abused all his connections. I am just waiting for him,and many many more, to come out and reveal how i really am.
I exploit my FAKE body all of the time because I lack intelligence, class, dignity, self-respect, elegance, and morals. I am a very dirty woman.
My ex husbond damon Thomas, whom i married at the age of 19 in las vegas, publicly called me untalented, a trashy whore, desperate, a plastic surgery addict, a backstabber (to my family) and a cheater.

I have no real friends because i have misused and stepped on everybody that has come my way, for fame. I am using social medias to snake my way in to other celebrities lifes for friendship and publicity. I show up like a diva to all kind of award shows that i have NO buisness at all to attend. The only award show i should attend is the AVN. I call the paparazzi myself. I desperately want to get married and have children, but no man with CLASS would be remotely associated with me. I even tried to put public pressure on Reggie….telling the public that we would get married. I have NO talent what so ever. I was thrown of dancing with the stars the second week. I made a work out video that clearly show i am in a very bad shape. I got a Razzie for my sad sad performence in disaster movie. My song JAM, i have no words for. It is the most annoying and pitiful song in history. I sing like an unmusical tone deaf 4 year old with a nasal monotone voice, very unfortunate!
Anybody who dont like me, for the rotten and lying whore that i am, who has alone made this world a worse place to live in, i call haters or jealous!
We,the kardashians, call each other dolls and have tainted the *****cat dolls by heisting their consept.
I pretend that i care about others, but i could not care less. I only care about myself.

I tried to fu@k over children by selling them an insane debit master card with predatory' fees.
It was unfortunatly of the market after 1 week.
But thank God, i found a new way to rip of the kids with glam silly bandz.
Over weight children must skip normal diet,exercise and do shady diet pills or lipo suction,like me.
I stole 120000$ from Sonja Norwoods creditcard.,Ray J and Brandys mother. After being busted i paid her back with the money i got from the sex tape i made with her son.
The clothes at Dash are pure knock offs from top brands and designers.I dont even know how to sew on a butten or sketch anything, yet i call myself a fashion designer
The logo on my perfumes is a complete rip of from Korcula creator Lindley Bertin.
For world aids day i went of social medias until my fans had raised 1mill$.
I was confident that within 24 hours i would be back. 7 days later i was bailed out by a billionaire who wanted to spare me the shame. This is how much my «fans» value and missed me.
I have never been single because i am to scared to spend time with myself.

I also love to flaunt my gigantic fake hippo ass because it’s my calling card for any rich Black man that wants to ram my @ss hard and move on! Evan Ross, Marquis Houston, Scott Storch, Fabolous, The Game, Nick Cannon, Nick Lachey, Tyson Beckford, Ray J, Reggie Bush, Christiano,Chengo(The Bodyguard is one of my favorite movies ever) Miles Austin,Gabriel Aubry(only because everybody said i was only into black guys)Kanye West and soon Kris Humpries are just a FEW of the men that have ALL fu@ked, pissed in my mouth, AND dumped me because they know that I am trash that brings their reputations down to the gutter with mine. I would fu@k anyone for publicity. I have had many STDs but the only one i have now is herpes, I am herpes. I am pathetic, plastic and am terribly insecure. I am a national and international joke, smell like piss and have a totally ripped @SS from my ANAL/PISS SEX TAPE, amongst others. I am a human toilet. I am clearly a very sick human being and i am 100% shameless. I am the most filthy famewhore in the whole wide world!
I am Kim Kardashian Superstar.......

SHOULD AMERICA BE INVOLVED IN ARMENIAN GENOCIDE RESOLUTION by an AMERICAN
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XknOTHGgMtI&feature=related


Armenians needs to open their archieves and TRY to work this with TURKEY, we have invited them over and over and over!!!!! They rather buy American politicans and use their "Christian" link to smudge Turkey than get to the bottom of this matter! They can shout as loud as they can, they can buy ALL American media and politicians, IT IS ALL IN VAIN!


There was no "GENOCIDE", it was ARMenian rebellian against its own country during war, THEY ARE JUST MAD, THEY LOST!

ARMENIANS NEEDS TO OPEN THEIR ARCHIEVES OR SHUT UP!
This goes to Armenians diaspora and this bimbo!

I would think that if Kim was aware of the Armenian Genocide(as her lawyer and managment say she was) and the date given to observe the tragedy, she or her mom/agent would have asked if this would be on the Turkish Cosmo.It was very apparent that she had signed the contract knowing that it would be for international use.
This reminds me of the credit card fiasco. The family stated they had no idea about all the hidden charges. They are business women, most people know that those kind of credit cards have so many odd charges on them. Thats why they put famous people on the card.

It seems this family are victims by everyone. Sex tape, not their fault. Kim is not even allowed to go to a event that Scott would be at. Kris was sure there fast enough to try to stop that one. No money in it for her. I just think this family will sell their soul. The young girls are being pimped out now. I thought Bruce would hve put a stop to that. The two younger ones are his kids too. Pay attention Bruce. When your little ones get into trouble, you had plenty of warnings.

NO disrespect towards Kim, but uhhh..isn't it time for another Armenian face(s) besides the Kardashians? If it's strictly a look thing (how else is she famous, besides a sex tape?)then there are SOOOO many BEAUTIFUL armenians out here. I get it, someone thinks she's hot, ok. And, yea, she's cute, she IS. But, I've seen some armenians walkin around that would make you turn your head from Kim in a second..that don't need sex tapes. I can't be alone in thinking this. Kim's cool, but I'm tellin' you there are straight up VICIOUS LOOKING DIME armenians out here.

I sympathize with Armenians issues with Turkey, but Cosmo shouldn't be blamed unless Kim SPECIFICALLY told them not to use her image in Turkey. You can't expect Cosmo to know the issues that are important to each and every person that appears in their magazine.

You've got to be kidding! This attention whore and her pimp mother couldn't care less about heritage or genocide or anything but MONEY. This person is "famous" for doing exactly what??? Oh, that's right, distributing a video of herself having sex and chasing every rich, black athlete stupid enough to pay attention to her. Let's not forget their original bankroll came from Daddy getting OJ off for killing two innocent people. The whole family is pathetic.
