Jennifer Aniston labeled ‘Karen’ for warning on Kanye: ‘Entitled liberal white women telling us how to vote?’
‘Friends’ star Jennifer Aniston gave a warning to not vote for rapper Kanye West and President Donald Trump for presidential elections on October 24 as the actress cast her ballot early. The 51-year-old television and film icon voted for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his party’s vice-president nominee Kamala Harris. “PS - It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible,” wrote the actress in her post attacking Kanye West. A user posted about her Instagram post.

The actress wrote a long Instagram post with a picture in which she is seen wearing a mask and shades and donning a casual blue sweatshirt as she holds her ballot. The actress wrote about some critical issues in her post that America is facing and how the choice of candidates can affect a certain section of people. Showing solidarity for the Democrats, Aniston began her post by saying, “I VOTED for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. 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.”
The actress continued, “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).” She concluded, “However, 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.”
Rapper Kanye West’s name has constantly grabbed the headlines since he announced his presidential campaign on July 4 in 2020. Many celebrities and high-profile personalities have shown their displeasure with his decision, and Aniston has just joined their bandwagon. Some of the notable personalities who are against Kanye’s candidature or have trolled him for his decision to run in US elections include actor Octavia Spencer, comedian-actress Tiffany Haddish, actor Eric Balfour and actress Hilary Duff to name some.
No sooner than Aniston wrote against Kanye, Internet started to pour in their scathing attacks on the actress. Some felt she was being Karen and a White privileged woman preaching them over racism, while others supported Aniston. A user wrote: “Interesting to see her comments about how the president has made racism a nonissue. It’s interesting because she was on ‘Friends’, the 6 characters lived in NYC. ALL white. You mean to tell me there wasn’t a single person of color to befriend in a city the size of NYC?” A person supported Aniston and her show ‘Friends’, “#1 casting wasn't her job and also pick an rl scenario. A show she acted on does not reflect her as a person.”

Another fan expressed displeasure with Aniston, “Jennifer Aniston tells fans not to vote for Kanye and now Julia Roberts agrees with Aniston. What's with these entitled liberal white women telling us how to vote? Julia Roberts lauds Jennifer Aniston as Kanye West fans criticize 'Friends' star.” “Aniston is officially Karen,” read a tweet. “You know how it is, privilege. People can think for themselves, we don’t need old cat lady celebrities to tell us how to think,” said another. A user wrote against celebrities, "When will these celebrities realize we do not care who they support! Such a joke." However, a user-supported Aniston and echoed her message, “THANK YOU JENNIFER ANISTON. This election is critical & the future of YOU & your loved ones is at stake. So don’t waste your vote on Kanye or any other clown. And if you think her plea is racist, keep your dumbass opinion to yourself b/c IT’S NOT.”
