Kim Kardashian proves that she has political opinions in New York Times ad, and that she isn’t afraid to bring justice with one freethenipple outfit at a time.

If you’re an avid Keeping Up With The Kardashians fan like us, you’ll be well aware of the family's Armenian heritage and the devastating Armenian genocide which occurred during the early 1900’s which killed more than a million people.

Now, Kim Kardashian is striving to educate the world about the Turkish governments horrific crime with a whole page ad in the New York Times.

Kimmy contrasted the similarities between the fake stories about her family that are spread across the media and a full page ad that was published in the Wall Street Journal six months ago. The ad in question was created by a Turkish Platform that denied the Armenian genocide.

“My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press... But when I heard about this full-page ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal denying the Armenian genocide, I couldn’t brush it off,” Kim wrote.

The letter continues to address the issues of how even to this day Turkey hasn’t been held responsible for their actions, and cites that if they had the Holocaust may not have happened.

“Many historians believe that if Turkey had been held responsible for the Armenian genocide, and reprimanded for what they did, the Holocaust may not have happened... We must talk about it until it is recognised by our government because when we deny our past, we endanger our future,” Kim wrote.

This remark is possibly aimed at Barack Obama, who in 2015 declined to use the word “genocide” in recognition of the 100th anniversary, after Kim’s pleas.

We must admit, when we first read Kim’s letter we were quietly shocked (and impressed) that she is so passionate about bringing justice to Armenia.

However, with Kim’s current obsession with #freethenipple outfits, we are now wondering if we live in a time where it’s celebrated for a woman to have smarts, yet advertise her body as an object?

If Kanye’s 2015 promise to become President of The United States in 2020 does come true, we wonder if Kimmy the First Lady will continue to sport her sheer numbers or resort to chic, modest outfits like Michelle Obama?
