"What is the message here and why am I (part of) it?" Dunst tweeted at Kanye West.
Kanye West's presidential bid was one of pop culture's wildest rides in a year that's already filled with many. Beginning with a bombastic rally in South Carolina in July, West has embroiled itself in an already controversial political race with a lot of controversy and a lot of headaches. But things don't look good for the outspoken artist who was banned from voting in Illinois, Montana, Ohio, West Virginia and Wisconsin for negligent filing. Nevertheless, he rushes forward and in the latest development West revealed a puzzling campaign poster on Twitter, which includes the face of Kirsten Dunst. The actress, who tweeted in response, first wants to know why she's part of his promotional materials.
"What is the message here and why am I separated from it?" Haze tweeted. Anna Wintour is also one of the faces depicted on the poster below. It turns out that Dunst's photo was taken by Mario Testino for a Vanity Fair shoot in 2002. Prior to the primaries, Dunst publicly endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who recently made a remark at the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Dunst was last seen in the dark comedy series "On Becoming a God in Central Florida," which aired that fall and was recorded for a second season shortly thereafter. She will next appear in Jane Campion's "The Power of the Dog" and stand up for Elisabeth Moss, who had to withdraw from the film.
West has run for election in several other key states including Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia, but it is not yet known whether he will qualify for candidacy. West has been the target of control since the president's rally, reflecting on everything from Harriet Tubman's role on the Underground Railroad to his views on abortion, sparked a major discussion on social media about the state of mind of West. West has admitted to being bipolar. His wife, Kim Kardashian West, later came out asking for empathy as the family dealt with West's mental health.
What is the message here and why am I separated from it? 🤷🏼♀️
