Kim Kardashian Took Out A Full Page Ad In The New York Times. Here’s What She Said.
Kim Kardashian took out a full page advertisement in the New York Times this weekend so she could criticize the Wall Street Journal.
On Saturday, the 35-year-old reality star rebuked the publication for publishing a full page ad back in April that denied that the Armenian genocide was as devastating as some historians say it was.
“My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press,” Kardashian’s ad reads. “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.” (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Has Decided To Weigh In On Black Lives Matter — You Have To See What She Said)

“For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting and dangerous,” she continued. “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. Why is it every time we take one forward, we take two steps back?”
“When we allow ourselves to be silenced by money, by fear and by power, we teach our children that truth is irrelevant,” she said.
“We have to be responsible for the message we pass on to our children.” (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Wore Nothing But Her Underwear While Out In Public)
