Kardashian, whose late father was Armenian, has long been vocal about her heritage and genocide awareness. The star traveled to Armenia with her sisters and cousins on the last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians to visit the genocide memorial in Yerevan, so the issue is near and dear to her heart.
When fans brought it to Kardashian’s attention, she took action and posted an open letter to the newspaper on her blog.
The full post is hidden behind a paywall, but here are some highlights:
Money talks, and right now it’s talking shit. … My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press. 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. …
Advocating the denial of a genocide by the country responsible for it — that’s not publishing a ‘provocative viewpoint,’ that’s spreading lies. It’s totally morally irresponsible and, most of all, it’s dangerous. …
We must talk about it until it is recognized by our government because when we deny our past, we endanger our future. When we allow ourselves to be silenced by money, by fear and by power, we teach our children that truth is irrelevant.
