The Armenian Assembly of America has stated that McCarthy lent support to the Assembly of Turkish American Associations, which led an effort to defeat recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the U.S. House of Representatives in 1985.
McCarthy is a member of the Middle East Studies Association, Middle Last Institute, Turkish Studies Association, Economic History Association, Institute of Turkish Studies and Turkish Historical Association.
Justin McCarthy has faced much criticism from Armenian scholars such as Peter Balakian including accusations that he is an "agent for the Turkish government." Justin McCarthy has been the target for hate campaigns to label him as a "genocide denialist" and "revisionist". Including continuous vandalism of his Wikipedia page to discredit his historical credentials.
In November 2013, three planned meetings at the Australian Federal Parliament, University of Melbourne and Art Gallery of New South Wales were canceled on the grounds of opposition to McCarthy's academic stances and due to pressure from groups who claimed that his view that there was no systematic and deliberate effort by the Ottoman Empire to wipe out populations amounts to genocide denial.
McCarthy married Carolyn Lamka on August 17, 1974. The couple has 4 children, Justin Nicholas, Caitlin Elizabeth, Anne Maureen, and John Patrick.
