Kobe’s Turkey Ties Ire L.A. Armenians Like Kardashian

Armenians in Los Angeles will campaign against Kobe Bryant’s sponsorship deal with Turkish Airlines and are urging him to drop it, the western U.S. chapter of the Armenian Youth Federation said.

Turk Hava Yollari AO, also known as Turkish Airlines, announced that it signed Bryant, a guard for basketball’s Los Angeles Lakers, to be a “global brand ambassador” yesterday as it seeks to publicize the start of direct flights from Istanbul to Los Angeles.
