Kim Kardashian Not Happy Over Cosmopolitan Turkey Cover

Every time you turn around these days you see Kim Kardashian’s face on the cover of a magazine, especially Cosmopolitan.  Usually it’s all fun and dandy, but she is not a happy camper about being the cover girl in Turkey this month considering she’s Armenian and Genocide Remembrance Day is this month.

She took to her blog to express her feelings over this saying:

I just found out today that I am on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine in Turkey this month. Cosmopolitan Magazine has a number of international editions all around the world that run in various territories, and when I did this shoot for the international covers I had no idea that Turkey was planning to run my story on their cover THIS month, considering Genocide Remembrance Day is this month. My Armenian heritage means a lot to me and I’ve been brought up to be incredibly proud of my family’s background and culture so as an Armenian-American woman it is a huge honor for me to be on the first ever Armenian Cosmopolitan cover (pic above.)

I have an amazing relationship with Cosmopolitan Magazine. World-over, Cosmo is known as a fun and inspiring magazine for women of all races, shapes, sizes, regardless of their political beliefs and I really hope that if I can bring awareness to the issue, then this in an accomplishment.

Executive director of the Armenian National Committee of America, Aram Hamparian, is also lashing out as Cosmo saying:

“It’s disrespectful to Kim Kardashian and to all Armenians for the publishers of Cosmopolitan to use her image, without her permission, on the month we mark Turkey’s genocide against the Armenian people.  Instead of trying to turn a profit in Turkey by callously featuring a cover photo of a descendant of Armenian Genocide survivors in its April issue, Cosmopolitan should find creative ways to educate its readers about the Turkish government’s shameful effort to cover up this atrocity.”

 

A spokesperson for Cosmo doesn’t seem too concerned telling TMZ:

 

“Kim Kardashian is one of our favorite cover girls.  We were thrilled to have the opportunity to photograph her for the Cosmopolitan editions worldwide.”
