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."

yeahyeah    

The funny thing is, if they hadn't used her ugly man-face on the Turkish version they would be complaining about that instead. It is a lose-lose situation for Turkey. I have been to Turkey, the people there are great.

Synapses firing??? This isn't that big of a deal. I bet Geragos and Kardashian don't think it's wrong and an insult for that mosque to be built near the 9/11 site. I bet he's all for THAT, due to the "right to free speech" but not for this!!!

Hey Geragos

And anyone who has a moral fiber in their body wouldn't do what you do. You are nothing but lying s*** and Karma will get you one day.

And its so easy to believe your friends with the KarTRASHican family, why wouldn't you? Peas in a pod.

This is coming from Mark Geragos, the same man who defended Scott Peterson.......the guy who killed his wife.

He is the same lawyer who defended Greg Anderson, a known and convicted drug dealer who dealt steroids to Barry Bonds and other players.

Geragos is a chump and should keep his pie hole shut.

It is racist to hate people for what might have happened one hundred years ago.

Kim is clearly practicing racism here by generalizing and collectively trying to punish entire people of a nation state.

Geragos is sooooo full of s...t.He loves cheap publicity and will do anything to get his big nose into everything that doesnt concern him.He should go back to defending his criminals and try to do a better job at it.

She did a shoot with Cosmo. Not the Turkish Cosmo but the parent company. And then they without her explicit permission used her photo on the cover of the Turkish version of Cosmo during a time that the Armenian people are mourning the loss of millions of their own at the hands of the Turkish government, which they still have yet to acknowledge. No matter what they are famous for, they have a valid point, concern, and issue.

As humans, we have the right to choose whomever we wish as friends, however, I cannot quite picture Mr. Geragos who seems to be active in the Armenian community, a "friend" of K K whose only accomplishment for fame is her overly publicized sex tape. Even tho she is only "part" Armenian, no other person, singlehandedly , has brought such disgrace upon an entire nationality as K K. My comment is not a criticism against Mr. Geragos, far from it, however, the combination seems a little, odd.
