Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston has urged her more than 35 million followers on Instagram to avoid casting their ballots for rap superstar Kanye West for US president.
The “Friends” star revealed voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for US president and vice president respectively in the 2020 national election.
“It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible,” said Aniston on Instagram Oct. 30.
West replied to Aniston’s post and said: “Friends wasn’t funny either.” The musician has deleted his tweet.
Aniston’s full post:
“#IVOTED for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I dropped my ballot off, and I did it early 👏🏼 I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies. Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died.
“I urge you to really consider who is going to be most affected by this election if we stay on the track we’re on right now… your daughters, the LGBTQ+ community, our Black brothers and sisters, the elderly with health conditions, and your future kids and grandkids (who will be tasked with saving a planet that our leadership refuses to believe is hurting). ⠀
“This whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency. ⠀
“PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”
