Kim Kardashian West continues to use her platform to raise awareness about something very near and dear to her heart.

As a response to that Wall Street Journal advertisement paid for by Turkic Platform effectively denying the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians back in 1915 — the Armenian Educational Foundation took out a full-page ad of their own in the New York Times using the reality star's original blog post from back in April to blast the WSJ.

As you may recall, "no stranger to BS in the press," the 35-year-old denounced the outlet for agreeing to run such a "shameful and unacceptable" ad at the beginning of this year.

At the time, KKW penned to her website:

"For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting and dangerous. 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."

Kanye West's wife also blasted the trusted publication's stance that is was publishing a "provocative viewpoint" by arguing:

"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."

Tell 'em how you really feel, Kimmy!

The Armenian Educational Foundation used Kim's poignant letter to relay their own message, all the while thanking the KUWTK star for putting a spotlight on the issue.

Julie Chen learned a valuable lesson from her family's dark history.

On Thursday's The Talk, the 46-year-old shared the terrible story of her great-grandmother and aunt being kidnapped and held for ransom.

Chen explained that since her grandfather was a wealthy businessman, it drew a "target on his back" years ago.

Apparently, a group of bandits once kidnapped his elderly mother and one of his teenage daughters, threatening to kill them if a large ransom wasn't paid.

Julie's grandfather managed to gather up all the money and gave it to his nephew to deliver for the exchange… except the family member double-crossed him and "disappeared into the night with the money."

Unfortunately, it was that very stab in the back that led to the murder of the CBS host's great-grandmother:

Rachel Berry did not fall from Broadway gracefully…

We thought it was weird that 2016 didn't have a stand out Song of the Summer… but that's because we were apparently waiting for school to start to be blessed with this mess.

Your high school-aged kids probably thought they had it bad when they were forced to go back to school last week, but at least they aren't these students!

Unfortunately for a select room of overly polite teens, a teacher named Ms. Wittle is going viral after trying her best to connect to her kids during the first day of school with parodies of today's hottest artists.

Apparently, the teacher thought singing her syllabus to hits by Drake, Rihanna, Fifth Harmony, and even Carrie Underwood would make her hip… but it only made her students cringe. (Our money's on the 3D laser light show being what set it over-the-top.)

The best part?? The whole thing lasted for at least
