Khloe Kardashian Should Have Told Lamar Odom About The Armenian Genocide

Mon, March 12, 2012 8:26am EST by 38 Comments
Khloe Armenian Genocide

Lamar gets an offer to play basketball in Turkey, which upsets Khloe because of the emotional history of her Armenian ancestors with the country — should she have told him?

Khloe Kardashian is usually SO honest with her husband Lamar Odom, but on the March 11 episode of Khloe & Lamar, the reality star is scared to tell her husband about the history of the Armenian Genocide! Do you think it’s wrong for Khloe to keep her feelings bottled up?

Khloe was totally wrong for not telling Lamar how she really felt about him playing overseas. The Armenian Genocide is also known as the Armenian Holocaust, it took place between 1915 – 1923, right after World War I. The deathtoll is said to be between 1 million and 1.5 million people.

Khloe was rightfully upset during the episode of Khloe & Lamar because she went on to explain that Turkey refuses to admit that a genocide ever happened. Her siblings Kim Kardashian and Rob Kardashian both agreed that Khloe was in a sticky situation and should definitely tell Lamar.

Khloe eventually told Lamar about her family’s history and he completely understood and told her they’d make the decision about his NBA future together.

This episode of Khloe & Lamar managed to be very informative about a topic that not many know about. Khloe did a good job at giving a history lesson but not forcing her fans to take sides. Khloe made a point to say that she doesn’t hold the modern day people of Turkey accountable.

I’m Turkish and i’m not offended by khloe.
I respect her and respect the things she believes in and respect her roots. I have armenian friends and we get along just fine.
We talk about it and I listen to their story.
Because i was not the at the time i can’t say it’s not true.
Statistics don’t lie. Don’t get me wrong, i am proud to be Turkish.
But i hope that one day we all can put it behind us and give them the peace they need to put it behind them.

Khloe’s my fav and it was sad seeing her like that cuz she’s a good person. I hope in that the armenian and turkish people make peace.

Turkey is guilty of denying their past history and viciousness towards their innocent and indigenous populations which included the Armenians and Greeks. These populations endured centuries of fear and terror under the Ottomans. At the time of the attacks Turkey was the Ottoman Empire. Yes, modern day Turks are not responsible but they are responsible for recognizing and making amends to those they hurt. There is not only an Armenian genocide but a Greek one as well. For those who perished and for those who escaped but lost all property, possessions and dignity as refugees let us remember them with respect. Thank you Kardashians for bringing this information to us.

What you just said is so ridiculous! Pick up a history book and you will not only see that there was no only NO genocide in Turkey but Greeks brutally killed many Turks in Cyprus. I have no hadrid towards Armenians Greeks but DON’T make turkey sound like some kind of villain, especially for something they did not do.

Seriously! These chics arent even real armenian FOBS!! For them to be hating on modern day Turkey for something that happened almost a 100 years ago is ridiculous. First off, GET OVER IT!!! Whether Turkey is at fault or not. Do not hold hatrid over a nation that probably no longer carries anything against Armenians. Its like the Mexicans and Latin Americans hating the Spanish (Spain) for the Spanish Inquisition. And Jews hating Germans for their “genocide”. These b**tches need to get over themselves. They just want something to b**tch about!! GET OVER it Armenians!

Everybody leave K and L alone. She will go wherever he goes. Her marriage is more important than the fame of that ignorant … Show. Ppl leave them alone. And whatever you do K don’t listen to your mother. She loves L much more than the show, and that is all that counts. Let them get back to their happy life together. This is crazy to let anyone or anything interfere with your love, commitment and long-term marriage. Drop dead haters!

I think that their relationship is good and that like any damn thing else good if others get a chance to destroy it then it will be done. I feel she is very supportive and overly supportive which shows there is no way for her to destroy her husband’s career, that is just a way to interfere with happiness no matter what. I believe in Love and people do actually have that still in the world so both of them need to stick together and not let people ruin them.

Khloe is doing a correct human gesture.
Doesn’t matter if someone is Armenian or not.
Anyone with a human dignity, should acknowledge a Genocide and respect the victims and blame the instigator.
It’s a proven fact that Turkey has committed a systematic elimination of a race. The word “Genocide” was termed by a Jewish lawyer after what he read about the Armenian Genocide.
I respect Khloe and Kim for their initiative.

Comparing the Armenian Genocide with the Holocaust is lame. Germany have accepted their guilt and until now are paying to the Jews. Turkey has still to accept their guilt, return the lands, stop cultural-destruction, stop the killing of it’s minorities, etc.
There is no human rights in Turkey, they can kill anyone who is not a Muslim without being punished. They have a legal Bill-301 that is directly linked to this fact.
All non-Muslims in Turkey are referred to as Kafirs and can be killed at will with full protection of their legal system!!
Please Google Armenian Genocide and educate yourself about the facts.

Bravo, Abris Khloe and Kim!!

Turkey should just admit it was genocide and move on. Instead they want to deny it forever. That is wrong. Because turkey has more money than Armenia they can blackmail/buy governments and people to keep quiet or even speak against the Armenian Genocide. The truth is on Armenia’s side. It’s even more sad that many Turkish people do not even know their own history……

Shout up khloe,she is just trying to bring up something. You know I laugh at these girls how they fake each and everyday. No wonder Jon said they are foolish idiots. I agree with him 100%. So who care,there is nothing educative about what she is saying,what happened was years agoso what has it got to do with your lame husband going to play in turkey. Let go check Lamar DNA and let see where he comes from. These people are modern day Turkish so shut up because you are of no talent. Your husband the douche bag needs money to feed a douchess like you and he will probably be paid playing in turkey. Am sure her dump head mum is behind all this trash. Who is hungry than the kardashian family,all of you deserve slaps. Don’t use the country by messing their name and make money of them. No wonder the kardashian will do anything for money. How on earth does kris humphries have the same account with Kim. This is typical fraud,is that how kourtney and Scott keep their money. Kris Jenner is vile beast. These family has lost all their shame

If you are not Armenian, you have absolutely no right to say anything bad about last night’s episode. Also, if it were about the Holocaust, I am sure everyone would have praised her instead. Think about that.

Armenian Holocaust…seriously Khloe…get over yourself. You are so removed from that. You swear something that happened in 1923 is affecting you so badly that you cannot move to that country. Your soooo lame! Your bearly Armenian anyway. You are just as much Armenian as I am German. Just like my ancesters moved here in the early 20’s. We are both AMERICAN. Stop seeking attention and being such a spoiled brat. Turkish people are actually really cool and I think you would really like it there. Its beautiful! Did you know that California put Japanese people in concentration camps. You don’t have a problem living here.

So you get to comment without being an ”idiot” while others are for sharing their own thoughts? U have really big issues! You don’t have a good life do you? If you love your country that much, then do something productive, instead of spreading false ”history”.

This is so scripted it’s laughable. In fact, their entire marriage is scripted and Khloe don’t have any Armenian ancestors anyway so she can stop with the fake pretense of being scared to tell Lamar about the history of the Armenian Genocide!.

the correct analogy would be “i’m a jew and germany denies the holocaust even though they ruthlessly slaughtered my grandparents … does that mean i shouldn’t go to germany?”

do some research on the subject :p

Genocide or not… Cant be proven without archives… Either way it is almost 100 years old. Besides the turkish republic was founded in 1923, 8 years after this tragedy. I cannot find any logical reason why the turkish people should be blamed. And i think the goverment has the right to deny it since officially they didnt do anything. Im not biased but it doesnt make any sense to me. In 1915 in istanbul there was a great population of armenian people. If the king or the sultan ordered to kill the armenians would he skip the ones closest to him? Besides considering turkey’s economic power and turkey being the only ally of the us in near east-it is a horrible idea to piss them off. DEAR KARDASHIANS YOU ARE AMERICANS NOT ARMENIANS. HATEING ONE OF USA’S BIGGEST ALLY IS JUST REALLY STUPID. Really stop talking about the armenian genocide. It is like blaming the jews for killing jesus christ. If you are really connected with your roots. Go to armenia, learn armenian. I guess you are having no problem living in beverly hills blaming other countries for their history. It is just wrong. I am jewish and i dont find the modern germans respinsible for my ancestors’ death. So please get over it like everybody else.
