Kim Kardashian Slamming the ‘Wall Street Journal’ Leads Today’s Star Sightings
Kim Kardashian has some heated words for the Wall Street Journal.
The reality star, who was spotted stepping out in head-to-toe nude on Wednesday (Apr. 27, 2016), recently took to her app to slam the publication for running an ad that denied the Armenian genocide. In the lengthy essay, Kardashian, whose father is of Armenian descent, penned, “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,” she wrote.
Kardashian claimed that having a credible outlet like the Wall Street Journal publish something like this was “reckless, upsetting and dangerous.”
“It’s one thing when a shitty 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. “Gawker asked the Wall Street Journal why they would run an ad like this. Their response was: ‘We accept a wide range of advertisements, including those with provocative viewpoints. While we review ad copy for issues of taste, the varied and divergent views expressed belong to the advertisers.'”
“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,” the 35-year-old added.
“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,” Kardashian explained. “We have to be responsible for the message we pass on to our children. We have to honor the TRUTH in our history so that we protect their future. We have to do better than this.”
