Kim Kardashian took out a full-page in the NYT to troll the Wall Street Journal

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian in Florida over the past few days. Kim has been getting pap’d constantly, almost as if she knew that people were paying attention to the Emmys and she wanted to ensure she got lots of attention too. I actually made a point of not choosing any of the photos where Kim had gotten her t-ts out and she was just wandering around, fully exposed for some reason. On Monday, Kim also posted a justification for her recent spate of public nudity, writing on her app: “I have always loved sheer—I just don’t GAF, LOL.”

Meanwhile, Kim did make one interesting move that didn’t involve her breasts, surprisingly. A few months back, the Wall Street Journal published a full-page ad in which FactCheck Armenia (an organization devoted to denying the 1915 Armenian genocide) publicly claimed to WSJ readers that 1.5 million Armenians were never slaughtered in one of the worst genocides of the 20th century. Kim, as an Armenian-American, actually has a history of activism around the cause of recognizing the Armenian genocide. When she visited Armenia last year, she made a special trip to the Armenian Genocide Memorial. And when the WSJ published that paid genocide-denial ad, she spoke up at the time. And now she’s doing even more: she bought her own ad in the New York Times, just to troll the Wall Street Journal for agreeing to publish that ad:

As you can see, she paired with the Armenian Educational Foundation for the ad placement. She wrote, in part: “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 WSJ to profit from genocide – it’s shameful and unacceptable.” It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Kim paid for the ad herself. I wonder how much it costs for a full-page ad in the NYT? This is actually my favorite version of Kim – when she stops taking selfies long enough to actually engage in something political, controversial and/or community-oriented.

NBA's Jahlil Okafor — STREET FIGHT … KO's Man In Boston (Video)

NBA superstar Jahlil Okafor — the #3 pick in the 2015 draft — punched a guy in the face HARD outside of a Boston bar last night … and TMZ Sports has the insane footage.

It all went down after Okafor and the 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics — Jahlil and some friends went out on the town … and ended up in an altercation in front of Storyville Boston nightclub.

19-year-old Okafor was screaming at the other man, “We got money you broke ass n**ga.”

A scuffle ensues — people tried to hold Okafor back — but then he escapes and swings wildly at another man … connecting … and sending him flying to the ground.

In the melee, Okafor tumbles to the ground and a man in a green jacket tries to punch the 6’11” superstar in the back of the head.

We’re told everyone got up and fled the scene and no arrests were made.

We’re told the altercation began because one of the men in the other group yelled at Jahlil, “The 76ers suck.”

We spoke with a rep for Jahlil who tells us … Okafor says he was being heckled from the moment he left the club and felt threatened because people swarmed him on the street. 

He says he was with a teammate — who he wouldn’t name — and says someone got physical with the teammate … so Jahlil did what he felt he needed to do to protect himself and his friend.

They immediately left after the incident.

Tommy Chong — ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Was My Idea!!!

Exclusive

112913_tommy_chong_launch_v3
Leonardo DiCaprio owes his latest paycheck to Tommy Chong, who tells TMZ, the new “Wolf of Wall Street” movie never would have happened if not for him … and he might be right.

Chong was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked about the time he spent in the clink with Jordan Belfort, the criminal stock market genius who the movie “Wolf of Wall Street” is based on.

FYI, Chong was sentenced to 9 months in prison in 2003 for selling bongs online.

Chong says he was working on a book at the time — it was 2004 by then — and he encouraged Belfort to write one himself … so Belfort did … and that book eventually became the bestseller “Wolf of Wall Street.”

Years later … that book is now a film. We’re no math geniuses, but we’re pretty sure that means Chong deserves some royalty money. Check the clip. Funny story.
