Kim Kardashian’s Armenian Genocide post

On April 24th 2021, Kim Kardashian took to Twitter and Instagram to share a post thanking US president Joe Biden for recognising the Genocide.

For many years, the Armenian Genocide hasn’t been recognised as such. Now, 106 years since the beginning of the mass killings, Joe Biden used the term “genocide” to give recognition to the estimated 1.5 million Armenians killed between 1915 and 1923.

Kim’s post read: “…today the Armenian people received the recognition we have all been hoping and praying for…“.
