Kim Kardashian has slammed The Wall Street Journal after their decision to run an advertisement from a group of Armenian genocide deniers.
The publication ran an ad from a group of Armenian Genocide deniers called the Turkic Platform six months ago.
The Armenian Educational Foundation has now decided to take out a full-page ad in The New York Times featuring a letter that Kim wrote – which was initially published on her app five months ago.
“For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting and dangerous,” she wrote.

“It’s one thing when a crappy tabloid profits from a made-up scandal, but for a trusted publication like WSJ to profit from genocide – it’s shameful and unacceptable,” she continued.
“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. If this had been an ad denying the Holocaust, or pushing some 9/11 conspiracy theory, would it have made it to print?“
