Kim Kardashian BLASTS The Wall Street Journal For Running An Ad Denying The Armenian Genocide

Kim Kardashian condemns Wall Street Journal.

Kim Kardashian West, FTW!!!

After finding out that an ad denying the Armenian Genocide ran in the Wall Street Journal during the 101st anniversary of the massacre, Kim took to her website to write a passionate condemnation of the newspaper:

"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 continued:

"The ad was paid for by Turkic Platform. I won't list the group's website, as I don't want to give them the traffic, but basically they say that not as many people died as historians say, and that the Armenians were to blame. For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting and dangerous. It's one thing when a sh–ty 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 that every time we take one step forward, we take two steps back?"

We couldn't agree more. It was shameless and irresponsible for the Wall Street Journal, and the reasoning they provided to Gawker is appalling:

"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."

That is so interesting. Would they also run "provocative" ads denying the genocide in Darfur, the Holocaust, the Trail of Tears, slavery, and every other atrocity throughout human history?

Stay classy, WSJ! Hope that ad revenue was worth it!

MAJOR props to Kim for calling them out!

That's so touching! The 29-year-old continued to explain to her younger self why all body types are beautiful, adding:

"There are some women who look some way, and there are other women who look another way. Like a whole other way. And the way that the other women look, people love. Because they look like women."

The lovely lady also offered up advice about pursuing her passion, even though it's been a difficult journey and the acting endeavor hadn't quite taken off at that point:

"There are going to be times when someone says, that dream that you've had, your entire life, the moment that someone says that's impossible, it is. I know you didn't get into drama school this time around, but, you will. You have the strength to overcome it."

She also prepped Young Emilia for the powerful pain of heartbreak and breakups:

North Carolina Has No Future Now With Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato! They Cancelled Their Tour Stops Because Of That Anti-LGBTQ Law!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinutePolitikInspirationDemi LovatoBusiness BlitzNick JonasTransgenderControversyLGBT

Way to go, you two!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have decided to cancel their upcoming tour stops in North Carolina.

The pop powerhouses were supposed to play shows in both Raleigh and Charlotte, but have decided to pull the plug on those performances because of the state's anti-LGBTQ legislation.

About a month ago, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which states that local cities and towns can no longer create their own rules banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

HB2 also says that transgender individuals must use the bathrooms that match the "biological sex" on their birth certificates in public schools, government agencies, and public college campuses.

In light of this terrible piece of legislation, the musicians announced on Monday that their Honda Civic Tour: Future Now will not be stopping in NC, sharing their joint statement on Instagram.

We imagine this is exactly what Prince would want.

He was truly a beloved soul.

On Thursday, Prince was found unconscious in his elevator, as paramedics were unable to revive him. He was eventually pronounced dead that afternoon.

When news got out, several artists and politicians spoke highly of the Purple Rain artist's legacy, for both his work in music and his humanitarian efforts.

On CNN, political commentator and friend Van Jones spoke about the 57-year-old's life that only his inner circle knew about.

It turns out the legendary musician funded several charities including Yes We Code and Green For All that respectively gave underprivileged youth technical jobs in Silicon Valley, and provided homes with solar panels.

Last year, Prince famously performed in locations such as Chicago, New Orleans, and Baltimore. According to Jones, he did these concerts in order to help local organizations deal with police brutality and social injustice.

As a Jehovah's Witness, the Minnesota-native did not allow himself to speak publicly about his good deeds. However, his actions spoke so much louder than words, and touched so many lives.

He will definitely be missed.
