Jennifer Aniston sure knows how to rile up people on the internet — even when she is merely performing her civic duties.
Luckily, the former Friends star had the unwavering support of her ex-husband, Justin Theroux, and countless famous pals, including Rita Wilson, Julia Roberts, Zooey Deschanel, and Julianne Moore.
The actress recently angered many, including Kanye West, who took a few swipes at her after she told her millions of followers that this election is not a joke, and therefore, they should not vote for him.
West, who is dreaming of the White House in the middle of a deadly pandemic, told his fans to write his name on the ballot when they vote in the 2020 presidential election.
Aniston shared a post on social media, explaining that this is not the time to waste a vote or goof around. She urged her fellow Americans to vote and ignore West’s wild suggestion.
She wrote: “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.”
Kim Kardashian‘s husband was quick to respond by sharing 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 the following caption: “Wow, 😳 that Rogan interview got em shook. Let’s gooooooooo.”
West sat down for an intense three-hour interview on The Joe Rogan Experience, where he spoke about his so-called presidential campaign.
He claimed: “There are people who say to me: ‘Well, music is bigger, or more influential than politics or celebrities are more influential. I thought of it like if I was a pastor of a 100,000-person church, but then I was also a captain, a sailor, and then we went to war, and I said: ‘I’m gonna man this ship that has 1000 people on it because God is calling me to take this position.'”

#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 🙏🏼
A long list of celebrities, including Theroux, stepped in Aniston’s comment section to show support amid the backlash from Donald Trump voters.
The actor applauded his former wife by sharing: “👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼.” Critics attacked Theroux by telling him to stay in his lane and to move to another country.
An angry social media user stated: “@justintheroux yes, let’s clap to a white woman saying not to vote for a black man; you bubbleheads are unbelievable.”
A Trump backer shared: “@justintheroux What the hell are you clapping for. Unfollowing. Move to Cuba or Venezuela!”
This critic wrote in response: “@justintheroux You live in NY……Have you seen what the Dems have done to that city? Yeah, keep voting for them. They have ruined the city.”
Things get messy very fast on social media.
