Sarah Michelle Gellar Slams Kim Kardashian Vogue Cover, Talks Cancelling Magazine SubscriptionBy: Meaghan Ellis - March 22, 2014
Sarah Michelle Gellar feels some kind of way about Kim Kardashian – or at least that’s the way it comes across.
On Friday, Mar. 21 the Crazy Ones star took to Twitter to express her disdain of Kim and her fiancé’ Kanye West on the cover of Vogue.
“Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription,” Gellar tweeted. “Who is with me???” The 36-year-old actress’ bashing comment came shortly after the Anna Wintour-inspired April issue cover was unveiled.
While her tweet was relatively evasive, everyone obviously got the point. The tweet quickly began circulating around the social media platform, catching the attention of the news outlets and gossip sites. Although numerous Gellar fans were in agreement with her subliminal jab, there were others who didn’t agree with her remarks.
Spindustry star Jonathon Cheban definitely took offense to Gellar’s comments. However, Cheban’s reaction wasn’t too surprising since he’s close friends with the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star. “Do u matter?” he defensively quipped, re-tweeting Gellar’s retort.
According to US Weekly, Cheban celebrated the couple’s “fashion bible coup” with Kardashian’s family on Friday. The publication also reports that Wintour has upheld her decision to feature the reality TV starlet and the Yeezus rapper on the cover. The critically acclaimed Vogue editor shared her sentiments of the controversial decision in her Editor’s Letter.
“As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort,” Wintour wrote.
“Kanye is an amazing performer and cultural provocateur, while Kim, through her strength of character, has created a place for herself in the glare of the world’s spotlight, and it takes real guts to do that.”
So, in a nutshell, anyone who finds the cover distasteful will just have to deal with it. The executive decision has obviously been made!
