Super Lawyer Outraged

at Kim K Cosmo Cover

4/11/2011 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Famed lawyer Mark Geragos -- one of the most outspoken people in the L.A. Armenian community -- is furious that Cosmopolitan ran a picture of Kim Kardashian on the cover of Turkish Cosmo, saying it's another example of Turks rubbing salt in the wound of the Armenian people.

Geragos -- a friend of Kim K's -- tells TMZ ... Turkey seems to be on a campaign to co-opt L.A. Icons.  First, Geragos says, the Turks used Kobe Bryant's image to promote Turkish Airlines, and now Kim.

Geragos says he believes the Kim K cover is a combination of taking advantage of a celebrity and rubbing salt in the wounds of a people who are the victims of genocide.

Geragos says, "Anyone who has synapses firing would never do such a thing."

Wow!...Another Idiot. True when you are a friend of any of the K-Dash, then you are automatically in the Record of dum@$$£@. Blaming Turkey version of the magazine is pretty stupid. How about you blame the Cosmo you signed a contract with? And oh btw!....Thank the black dude to put you on map by pounding your @$$.

@Krysalys,

It would be as if Germany refused to apologize for the holocaust or even admit that it occurred.

In this case though I think Kim needed to explicitly tell them not to use her image in Turkey. She can't expect Cosmo to know this considering how many celebrities they deal with.

Hey, Kim K, being Armenian and posing for Turkish Cosmo is like being Jewish and posing for a Hitler's youth poster.
You brag so much about your big Armenian butt yet you famewhore yourself to the country that tried to exterminate your kind!
Sorry Mr. Garagos those Kardasian bimbos don't have the synapses firing and their dad is rolling in his grave.

Is this a Joke??? Kim K is a media WHORE...The entire family would do anything, and i mean anything to get media exposure....

Were going to end up with 12 reality tv shows following each and every member of the family...And with every media publication known to manking having a rotating member of the family on the cover the magazine...

Such rubbish...grow up you idiot..

Stop using the term "alleged" - you sound as moronic and deranged as the Iranians who claim the Holocaust never occurred. Eight of my grandfather's siblings and parents were murdered by the Turkish government right in front of his eyes. There is nothing alleged about that. There is no "getting over it" or "growing up" until those responsible for the Armenian Genocide admit the mistakes their forefathers made. Then the healing can commence.

Although I know nothing about this genocide issue, I have one question: If Kim and her people knew she was doing an international photo shoot for an international magazine, why didn't her contract state specifically that her image could not be used for any publications in Turkey? Does she or her people know what international means?

Kim, take a break from chasing professional athletes, hire better attorneys and agents, and learn how to read your own contracts. And remember, you can't turn a ho into a housewife.

SHAME ON YOU tmz!!!! There are no ALLEGED victims. There was no ALLEGED Genocide. The Armenian Genocide DID take place. Brush up on your history before you post such a story. Just because Turkey denies it does not mean it did not take place. Crazy people to this day deny the holocaust ever took place, is it ok to call it an alleged holocaust?
