Kim Kardashian buys full-page New York Times ad blasting Wall Street Journal for denying Armenian genocide


Kim Kardashian took out a full-page ad in the New York Times this week in response to the Wall Street Journal recently publishing an ad denying the Armenian genocide. Kardashian’s full-pager came via the Armenian Educational Foundation, a non-profit group that offers eduction to Armenian students around the world,

“Money talks and right now it’s talking crap. My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press,” Kardashian writes in the letter. “We’ve learned to brush it off. Lies make good headlines, good headlines make great covers, great covers sell magazines. But when I heard about this full-page ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal denying the Armenian genocide, I couldn’t just brush it off.

  • I can’t say I have ever thought well of her or anything she has ever done, but this time I will.

      Same here. Should be interesting to see how this plays out. She’s getting dangerously close to that politically incorrect place where most celebrities fear to tread.

      I can’t believe it but I have to say Well Done!

      The Kardashians aren’t exactly a glowing example for why the Armenians shouldn’t have been killed off. (sarc)

    Fourth comment, but the first to mention that the link doesn’t go to the story, only a photo of Kim.

    Just saying. 😉

    Armenia could be in Arkansas …how would she know?

    Good for Kim and hooray for her conscience.

    The one thing I disagree with is the title: “Genocide denial must not be allowed.”

    In a free society, it must be allowed. This does not mean, however, that the Wall Street Journal should have accepted the advertisement. They are also free to choose what is run in their paper.

    The Armenian Genocide is a woefully under-discussed topic.

  • Brett_McS

    People with surnames ending in “ian” are usually of Armenian heritage. King Banaian used to be on the precursor to the Powerline podcast and he explained that one time. He left to run for office and I see he is now in the Minnesota state house of reps.

    Blasting Wall Street Journal For Denying Armenian Genocide

    Nothing new for the Times.
    They did a grand job of obfuscating the Holocaust.

    • Clausewitz

      and the killing of about 10 million Ukrainians through starvation by Stalin.

  • Barrington Minge

    She needs a full page to get her arse in……needs to shut the f%uck up.

  • Tokenn

    I’m impressed. Is this the most worthwhile thing she’s ever done? The only…?
