LOS ANGELES—Celebrities, including Blink 182’s Travis Barker, Kim Kardashian, and Cher, rallied around the #SaveKessab social media campaign over the weekend to raise awareness about the violence being committed against the Armenian population of the Syrian town.
Travis Barker, best known for his work as drummer for Blink 182, posted a picture on Instagram on Sunday, along with the hashtags #SaveKessab and #StopGenocide.
Kim Kardashian also joined the social media campaign with Twitter posts on the same day.
Meanwhile, American singer Cher also asked her fans on Twitter to “check out what’s going on in Kessab, Syria.”
“Innocent Christians and Armenians are being killed by Turks,” Cher twitted.
The social media campaign picked up steam after international protests on Friday against Turkey’s complicity and aid in the attacks on the Armenian town. The hashtag #SaveKessab has been trending since then.
