Sarah Michelle Gellar Cancels Vogue Because Of Kim Kardashian
Via HuffPo reports:
On March 21, Vogue made all of Kim Kardashian’s wedding dreams come true, debuting a cover featuring the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple with #TheWorldsMostImpracticalHashtag. The Internet was left to roll around in the gleeful approach of marital bliss (and its accompanying two-part E! special), but there were dissenters among us.
Sarah Michelle Gellar slayed #TheWorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple like it was a vampire in the late ’90s. “Well … I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription,” she tweeted. “Who is with me???”
According to the New York Post, many readers were upset with the cover and also threatened to cancel their subscriptions. Yet, in her editor’s letter, Anna Wintour was cooly confident about her decision.
The iconic editor-in-chief defended her choice, writing that her mission is to “feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)”
Basically, Sarah Michelle Gellar and everyone else can go ahead and #BoycottVogue, but Kim and Kanye will still be #DefiningTheCultureAtThisGivenMoment, K?
Apparently, she’s not alone. Others seem to have an issue with Kim on the cover as well, See what others have said.
