Viral Message: “Khloe and Lamar” talk Genocide


The American hit “reality” television series “Khloe and Lamar” was an unlikely but effective platform for educating television viewers about the Armenian Genocide Sunday.


The television show – starring the Kardashian sister and her husband, Dallas Maverick basketball player Lamar Odom – included the Genocide topic as part of a discussion by the couple over whether Odom might have played basketball for a Turkish team, during last winter’s National Basketball Association players’ strike.

According to a ratings system, more than 2.1 million viewers tuned into the show, and on March 11, the term “Armenian Genocide” was the 10th most-searched term on Google.
