Reality TV superstar Kim #Kardashian is on damage control duty in her ancestral homeland #Armenia after her decision to produce some of her SKIMS undergarment line in Turkey drew the criticism of an Armenian-American advocacy group in September.
Footage shows Kardashian and her sister Courtney leaving Yerevan’s Alexander hotel and making their way through the cheering fans to a car on Monday. The sisters and their seven children had arrived at Zvartnots International Airport earlier that day.
While Kim herself has been leading calls for the US government to recognise the Armenian Genocide, she came under fire for choosing Turkey as one of the production sites for SKIMS.
The Armenian National Committee of America condemned her decision and demanded she change the production site to Armenia instead in a tweet.
The 38-year-old reality star who has Armenian heritage through her now-deceased father Robert Kardashian replied in a tweet saying, "… I hope to seek ways I can help increase trade and hopefully create jobs for Armenians which includes SKIMS production there in the future."
