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.”

"Not a fan but if this is true it's a complete slap in the face. I've been stationed in Turkey and the level of ignorance there towards Armenians is brutal."

pfft. All I have to say is, I've been living in the USA for 30 years and the level of apathy towards Native Americans is brutal.

I totally understand why she wouldn't want to be on the Turkish version of the magazine, but it was on her to discuss this. If she knew it would be used in international versions of the magazine she should have explicitly told them not to use it in Turkey. She can't expect these magazines to know the issues of everyone it features in the magazine.

So I am unclear, does Poster #7 dislike Kim? lol
I don't get why they are famous but with so many other trashy reality celebs, at least Kim is beautiful, fake or not. She photographs well, unlike some of those scary looking "real" housewives. arf!

It's not like Cosmo is a Turkish OWNED magazine/company. Exactly what financial and political impact does this think she'll have by boycotting one area of an American owned magazine/company?

Does she really think she can keep her public image out of Turkey?

Talk about a 'First World Problem', to complain about being on the cover of an AMERICAN magazine in the wrong country.

Kim, honey, boycotting.... yer doin' it wrong.
