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.”

Get over it, azzhole. You sell yourself (your image, your body and your name) every chance you get..... not up to you what the buyer uses it for unless you have some written agreement up front. Just take your money and shut up already

Please. The worst revenge Kim could get against Turkey is plastering herself all over their magazines. The only different between Kim & genocide is her rack.

This incident happend almost 100 years ago. While I know we haven't gotten over Hitler, it's not like we all hate Germany now because of it? Or bad art?

Well done Kim! People who talk do not care about the people they killed. I hope you fall into the hands of the Turks. You deserve a worse fate.

Thank you, TMZ, for removing the words "many believe" genocide occurred.
You would never cast doubt upon the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis.
So, I have to ask, why hedge your words?
Considering that TMZ operates out of California, it's really shocking that you show such disrespect to the large Armenian community there.

The World has more things to worry about than these whores. You ain't that important and Neither do Turkey people have money to spend on buying Cosmo. Its not a matter to be cared at all. By the way the thing is they track in their own way. And we in our way. So no time to care.
