Kanye West reacted Friday to Elle magazine’s voter registration stunt involving getting readers to click on a link about him and Kim Kardashian’s relationship to get them to register to vote.
The 41-year-old rapper tweeted, “I agree,” in response to a tweet from The Daily Caller’s Peter J. Hasson who called out the magazine for tricking readers. (RELATED: Kanye Overcome With Love, Hugs Trump In Oval Office)
“Just wanna go on the record as hating this. If someone has to trick you with celebrity clickbait to get you to register to vote, maybe you shouldn’t be voting,” Hasson tweeted, along with a link to the since-deleted post from the magazine.

But the link actually went to a voter registration page, that read, “So far in the primaries, women have beat long-time incumbents and created historic races, all while redefining what it looks like to be a woman in politics.”
“And now you have the opportunity to vote for them or whomever you choose in the midterm elections. No matter your party or state,” it added. “It’s more essential than ever to make your voice heard. Take a few minutes to complete the form below, and be sure to cast your vote on Nov. 6.”
