Our leading candidate for Jersey Chaser of the Year, Kim Kardashian has launched a Twitter campaign asking her more than 5 million followers to write to US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to pass a bill condemning the Armenian Genocide.
Proud of her heritage, Kardashian is none too happy that while Armenians fight for recognition, LA Laker Kobe Bryant has signed a contract to endorse Turkish Airlines. In 1915, Turkey committed a mass massacre on Armenia, but Turkey refuses to admit the genocide took place. Los Angeles is home to one of the largest Armenian populations in the US, and Kobe’s newest endorsement deal has angered many including Kardashian.
Kardashian asked her brother-in-law and Bryant’s teammate Lamar Odom to talk to him to get out of the contract. While Bryant has not spoken publicly on the controversy, he allegedly told Kardashian he signed a business contract, and it is not political.
