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."

The reason most nations dispute the legitimacy of the alleged Armenian Genocide is due to the war. The invasion of Poland, as terrible as it was, is not considered The Polish Genocide. The invasion of Spain is not considered The Spanish Genocide. The push for the US gov't to recognize the alleged Armenian Genocide is nothing more than an attempt to funnel tax dollars and grant special immigration status to the Armenian community.

How is it disrespectful. The Armenians were part of the Ottoman Empire--and by showcasing an American-Armenian celebrity, it's a reminder of the genocide. How is this bad?

Kim is only 1/2 Armenian anyway, the other half is plastic surgery and genes from her Pimp Mother gutter trollop. The whole family is gypsy trash that would do anything for a buck!

I am an Armenian-American and see this as a non-issue. Who cares. Just like the non-issue with Kobe Bryant. Hey ANCA, why don't you instead focus on getting the media attention on Azerbaijan threatening to shoot down civilian flights over NKR. I think that's more important than this whore on some Turkish magazine.

Also, can someone please explain to me HOW and WHY these Kardashians are celebrities? Her dad was OJ's lawyer, she is friends with another dumb whore Paris Hilton, and she made a sex tape with some black dude? So her family gets millions, TV shows, and many young people adore her and her family for that? Is there something I'm missing??

I don't know much more about them and from what I see during their interviews with late night talk shows, they are one of the dumbest and sleaziest people I have ever seen. Do your father and half-ancestry a favor by dropping the IAN, and the rest of the world by disappearing.

How on Earth can you be "disrespectful" to a chick who has a video of her taking it up her butt and having her face used as a toilet? HOW?

"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." Huh?

Why blame Cosmo? Kim puts her breasts and revealing clothing out for the whole world to see. That is her image she portrays. She is disrespectful to the Armenian people who live in Turkey. Supporting a good cause by revealing T & A is an oxymoron.
