Kim Kardashian has called on fans through Twitter to help save the ancient Armenian Christian village of Kassab. Recently, the residents of the city fled as rebels seized control of the hamlet. Hear her:
“If you don’t know what’s going on in Kessab please google it … As an Armenian, I grew up hearing so many painful stories,” Kardashian wrote in a March 30 tweet, using an alternate spelling of the village’s name. “Please let’s not let history repeat itself!!!!!! Let’s get this trending!!!! #SaveKessab #ArmenianGenocide,”
She was pushed to wade into the matter when false claims by loyalists of Syrian President Bashar Assad, said Syrian rebels desecrated the village’s churches and slaughtered residents.
Kim’s publicist Ina Treciokas, said Kim was “just voicing her support for Armenians” and said she had no additional comment.
