Ana Kasparian was born on July 7, 1986 in Los Angeles, California, USA as Anahit Misak Kasparian. She is a producer and actress, known for Hopeless (2010), The Young Turks on Fusion (2016) and TYT Arm Wrestling Tournament (2012). She has been married to Christian Lopez since 2016.
Ana Kasparian is very controversial in the Armenian community for her association with Cenk Uygur and the show The Young Turks (2005). The name is highly offensive to the Armenian community because of the historical significance of the term 'Young Turks': In 1908, the political group called the 'Young Turks' came to power in the Ottoman Empire after overthrowing Sultan Abdul Hamid. The main figures of the Young Turk movement, Mehmed Talaat Pasha, Ismail Enver Pasha, and Ahmed Djemal Pasha, began a nationalistic Turkification campaign leading up to the events of the Armenian Genocide between 1915 and 1923. The Young Turks organized the systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians and other Christians by killing squads, starvation, death marches and other methods. Although the company's founders have denied any linkage to the name's historical significance, it's undeniable that Cenk Uygur had published a college article denying the Armenian Genocide.
