Kobe Bryant's Latest Commercial Offends 100,000 Lakers Fans

Oops! When Kobe Bryant goes to cash the check that Turkish Airlines cut them recently for his role in the commercial posted below, he might want to think twice about the endorsement deals he accepts in the future. KB24 is under fire right now from the Armenian-American population in Los Angeles (which, for the record, tops 100,000) for accepting an invitation to endorse the government-run Turkish Airlines, despite the fact that Armenian-Americans (including Kim Kardashian!) have been fighting for years now to try and get the Turkish government to accept the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in the early 20th century as a genocide. And while we can't really blame him for getting his paper, we're pretty sure he didn't know he signed up for all this when he agreed to jump into this commercial. Sooo...who's getting a towel thrown in their face for this one? [via Ball Don't Lie]
