Entertainment News: Kim Kardashian & Kylie Jenner Tease Their Makeup Collab Watch Now!

Kim Kardashian honored her heritage Monday and spoke out on the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian genocide.

“Thinking of Armenians everywhere. 102 yrs ago, Ottoman authorities began a slaughter that would kill 1.5m,” the reality TV star tweeted Monday afternoon.

April 24 marks the anniversary of the day the Ottoman Turks began the eradication of 1.5 million Armenians.

Kardashian, whose father, Robert, was a third-generation Armenian American, has previously spoken out about the Armenian genocide, including last April when the Wall Street Journal ran a full-page ad from Fact Check Armenia, which denies the genocide happened.

"Advocating the denial of a genocide by the country responsible for it — that's not publishing a 'provocative viewpoint,' that's spreading lies," she wrote in the blog post. "It's totally morally irresponsible and, most of all, it's dangerous,” she wrote in a blog post.

"We must talk about it until it is recognized by our government because when we deny our past, we endanger our future. When we allow ourselves to be silenced by money, by fear and by power, we teach our children that truth is irrelevant."

She took out a full-page ad in the New York Times relaying a similar message.

Kim and Khloe Kardashian, along with Kanye and North West, visited Armenia in 2015 ahead of the 100th anniversary of the genocide.
