Kim Kardashian may be a busy woman who is trying to balance her career comeback after her divorce from Kris Humphries, a brand new relationship with Kanye West and her endorsement deals, but she wants her millions of Twitter followers to remember a piece of her heritage and history.
One of the first tweets Kim sent out this morning was regarding the Armenian Genocide and how people should remember this horrific event. If it wasn't for Kardashian, many people wouldn't know about it, as the girls often talk about their proud Armenian heritage on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Lamar & Khloe. In fact, recently Lamar was asked to play in Turkey and Khloe felt weird about it because of her Armenian heritage and the genocide.
Kim Kardashian decided to remind all of her followers of the Armenian history. "Today lets all stand together & remember the 1.5 million people who were massacred in the Armenian Genocide. April 24th, 1915," she tweeted, adding the hashtag #neverforget.
If it wasn't for Kim, many younger people probably wouldn't know about the genocide. Although Kim probably doesn't take the title of educator, she is often speaking out on the issue to keep reminding people that this event actually happened.
Whether Kardashian is liked or not, the Armenian people will surely appreciate that someone with such a large following and fan base is using it for something good and educational.
Do you think Kim is doing the right thing?
