The artist also took time to respond to Aniston’s scathing Instagram post condemning people who think it‘s “funny” to vote for him in the presidential election. Aniston posted a photo wearing mask and dropping off her mail-in ballot and made it clear who she was voting for in the caption. The actress wrote, “#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 🙏🏼”
According to the Daily Mail, in a since-deleted tweet, West responded to Aniston by posting a screenshot of a Vanity Fair article titled “Jennifer Aniston Endorses Joe Biden, Tells Fans ‘It’s Not Funny to Vote for Kanye.” He added, “Wow that Rogan interview got em shook Let’s gooooooooo.” Referring to his three-hour-long interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast which had mixed reviews to say the least. He then attempted to hit Aniston where it hurt and added in another deleted tweet “Friends wasn’t funny either.”
After he roasted Friends and announced the “city of the future” West voiced some concerns about his follow count on Twitter. West wrote, “I was at 31 million followers 4 weeks ago and now I’ve been held at 30.9 million followers for the last 4 weeks” along with several suspicious emojis.
