While the Kardashians are the 21st-century embodiment of the American dream, the OG children are ethnically Armenian thanks to their dad Robert—and the kids paid their respects to their native homeland over social media in recent days.
The Kardashians' social media messages refer to the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, specifically over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh. Nagorno-Karabakh is in Azerbaijan but has a majority Armenian populace, according to Foreign Policy. After fighting increased in the area in the past week, the Kardashian kids threw out their prayers. To which Azerbaijan's ambassador to the U.S. said, "Bitch, please." More or less.
Elin Suleymanov's exact words were, “She’s very famous and beloved by her fans, but matters of war and peace are a little too serious for a reality-TV star." Suleymanov addressed Kim's involvement during a chat with Foreign Policy. Dude totally isn't on Twitter or Instagram because he failed to realize that Kim's three siblings are praying for Armenia, too.
After dissing Kim, Suleymanov added, "I personally would be a very bad reality-TV star, so I try not to cross into areas I’m not familiar." Yeah, agreed.
“I’m not sure Ms. Kardashian is a military or political analyst," he said, "so maybe we should all do what we do best." And Kim sure knows how to do reality TV.
Ironically, for all Suleymanov's negativity, Kim and her family have probably gotten more people learning about Armenia-Azerbaijan relations than ever before. Someone should tell Suleymanov that any PR Kim does for the Armenians is balanced out by the number of people who hate her and therefore think Azerbaijan makes some good points.
