Wall Street Journal

by

When Robert Kelly appeared on BBC World News last Friday, we doubt he knew what he would be facing in the days that followed.

Robert and his family became an Internet sensation after his two kids burst into the room that he was doing a live interview in.

The clip went viral and we all instantly fell in love with the family.

And now, Robert and his wife, Kim Jung-A, have finally spoke out about what happened that day.

Robert and Kim sat down with the Wall Street Journal, with Kim laughing that "he usually locks the door!"

The mum-of-two said, "Most of the time they come back to me after they find the locked door. But they didn't. And then I saw the door was open. It was chaos for me."

In the interview with the WSJ, Robert then got a moment to speak by himself, but of course, his children came crashing back down the corridor.

"This is my life, man!" he exclaimed in the interview.

Ah, we love this family!

To some, Kim Kardashian is nothing more than a poster girl for nude selfies and high-profile marriages, but to millions more she is an astute businesswoman who often lends her voice to discussion surrounding race relations and various other cultural issues.

And as a woman of Armenian descent, Kim took exception to the Wall Street Journal's decision to accept for publication a full-page ad which denied the Armenian genocide of 1915.

In response to the ad which ran in April of this year, Kim, who recently visited her ancestors' homeland, took out a full-page ad in the New York Times deriding the WSJ's decision to run the denial.
 

While Kim spoke of her disgust in a blog entry at the time of the ad's publication earlier this year, the reality star knew she would reach a different demographic by reiterating her thoughts in the New York Times.

"Money talks, and right now it’s talking crap," she wrote. "My family and I are no strangers to BS in the press. We’ve learned to brush it off."
 

"Lies make good headlines, good headlines make great covers, great covers sell magazines. But when I heard about this full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal denying the Armenian genocide, I couldn’t just brush it off," she continued.

Addressing the theory that Armenians were to blame for the 1.5 million deaths in 1915, Kim wrote: "For the Wall Street Journal to publish something like this is reckless, upsetting, and dangerous."

"It’s one thing when a crappy tabloid profits from a made-up scandal, but for a trusted publication like the WSJ to profit from genocide –  it’s shameful and unacceptable," she said.
 

 

An emotional day at the genocide museum.

"If this had been an ad denying the Holocaust, or pushing some 9/11 conspiracy theory, would it have made it to print?" she asked. "We have to honor the truth in our history so that we protect their future. We have to do better than this."

Kim has been commended for her contribution to the argument, with many taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.

"KimKardashian please do more like this, your voice is so powerful & strong, so many people begging to be helped and heard." wrote one of the star's followers this week.
