Kim Kardashian

Upset at Cosmo

for Turkish Cover

4/11/2011 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources close to Kim Kardashian tell TMZ ... Kim 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 Kardashian Cosmo Cover Upset
We're told Kim -- an Armenian-American who has been vocal about the genocide -- 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.

Sources say Cosmo let Kim's people know which international outlets of the magazine would use her picture -- but we're told Cosmo never mentioned Turkey to Kim or her reps.  Our sources 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.

We contacted Cosmo for a statement ... and here's what they told us -- “Kim Kardashian is one of our favorite cover girls.  We were thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her for the Cosmopolitan editions worldwide.”

regardless of her, turkey committed genocide against _all_ the christians of turkey in the early 1900s.

no deflection can hide that.

2000 yrs of christians were forcibly and brutally ousted from their ancenstral homes.

*** genocide scholars across universities everywhere have concluded that turkey committed genocide. ***

it was not just an armenian genocide; it was a christian genocide. ask the assyrians christians, ask the greek christians

turkish hyper-nationalism denies all that. americans taking turkey's side because they hate Kim are not just being petty, they are being dangerously stupid.

>>If people are serious about the issue then launch a full investigation and close the case once and for all instead of making Turkey guilty in the eyes of the public.

almost all the balkans and the middle east were ottoman back then. if these guys committed genocides, then turkish would be native language in these regions.. like spanish and portugese in latin america.. french in some parts of africe.. and of course english in north america... you should either condemn usa for their native indian genocide, france and english for their african genocide, portugal and spain for their south american genocide, or shut your hypocritical mouth!!

Wow, I don't know how to act towards this, why wouldn't anyone stop for a second to realize with their big money making industry all-knowing brains to realize what they did was wrong for one second of the time they were distrubting the magazine in Turkey? It's weird being Armenian but so beautiful I guess we are all one but should stand for what is right because of so much wrong that has happened just to only us. . . I am sure throughout unrecorded history we had more like this but none would come close to the Genocide because we people had IQ's enough to know how to build civilization and mountain people and smart and it was wrong to have happened but it is something we have all individual carry and through this great pain and sufferage we feel this self righteousness for one another's lives and for the ones we lost and alll the generations we skipped to get to this present one. Some people refuse to see what is right in front of their face. Some people don't want to deal with obstacles that face them everyday in order to gain and lose and gain again. They care only for their comfort and leads to other people feeling robbed hurt and angry but It is something we shuld all commenorate for one an other and eachother's families and foes and friends....

RIP TO ALL MY FAMILY IN ARMENIA
AND TO ALL OUR FAMILIES WE LOST FROM THE GENOCIDE THAT COMMITTED BY THE TURKEY AND IT'S CITIZENS. . . AGAINST THE GREEKS AND ARMENIAN PEOPLE


To all my GREEK FRIENDS AND FAMILY I LOVE YOU TOO... THank you FOR BEING LIKE COUSINS TO THE ARMENIANS

But at the right price, she will do it again and again. She may even pose nude again and again and call it art!

This family is disgusting and worse than them are their followers!

This is BS!
she always claims "i had no idea"..who is working for her??
And she was a guest on the Dr. OZ show not to long ago, he is Turkish. Is that offensive??
She is American first, so the Armenian people are being ridiculous. Instead of apologizing she should question the hundreds of thousands of Armenians who live in Turkey.

Another LIE by Kim Kardashian!

She claimed to be upset about some photos that revealed too much and faked anger at that hideous mother.

She and the rest of these trashy no goods claimed not to know about the usurious interest charged for their debit card.

BOYCOTT and IGNORE any and all things they attach their name to or any magazine that features Kim or any of the rest on the cover and they surely will disappear from the media.

And Baby K should get a Big Prize for the accurate portrayal of Kim Kardashian!

Whether or not this was even correctly labeled as a genocide is widely debated. Many turks died in this process too. I'm turkish and I'm not going to defend something that my ancestors may have been involved in over 100 years ago, but I would imagine that if the Ottoman Empire wanted to kill off Armenians, considering how powerful they were, they wouldve done it and this **** show of a family wouldnt exist. If Kim had a brain in that head of hers, she would've picked up a history book and did her research before freaking out about this magazine. Sorry honey but your SEX TAPE is all over Turkey as it is in all other countries, you should be more offended over THAT. There are bigger issues in the world that your "Armenian Genocide" which you'd know more about if you had GONE TO SCHOOL.

Gosh! I doubt she knows nothing more than what she might have heard from the Armenian lobbyists. Those guys are keeping the issue hot and never opening it to historians' debate.
