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."

Get over yourself, Kim. You whore yourself out to any publication that you can find. If a shot is used without your explicit permission, though legal if you read the contract rather than the $$$$ signs, TOO BAD.

am i ignorant? shouldn't armenian people think of this as a "ha ha on you" that an armenian is splashed all over their newsstands? i can see where it'd be disrespectful for a turk to be so prominent on a magazine in armenia, but i see this more as a victory... anyone else?

Aram Hamparian, may we inform you that Kim is an American and entitled to all of the freedoms and rights of her citizenship. Her heritage is Armenian and stop shaming her and embarrassing her to show that so-called "Armenians" are tyrannical. Shame on you. Keep this endless circle of hatred going in Armenia and leave we Americans alone! Learn how to get along with your neighbors and try following the one God's policy of forgiveness and getting past the junk to build a future of peace. Americans suffered through our own civil war with brother against brother and we GOT OVER IT. MOVE ON and help to build a peaceful world!

How much does TMZ get paid to keep talking about the Kardashians? Ugh.


In defense of the Turks.... The Kardashians are marketed as AMERICAN. Not Armenian. I'm guessing in Turkey they see them as random Americans who are famous for being infamous.
