Kim Kardashian has finally gotten her coveted Vogue cover, which is believed to have been her lifelong dream.
However, Anna Wintour's decision to feature the reality TV star and her beau Kanye West on Vogue's April cover has created a stream of criticism, and one celebrity made the decision to openly voice her disapproval.
Sarah Michelle Gellar took to Twitter on Friday to express her distaste for the prestigious fashion magazine's decision to feature Kardashian and West on its cover.
She tweeted, "Well……I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???"
And there were plenty of people who agreed with Gellar because her tweet found itself being retweeted and added to favorites thousands of times. Although, whilst many of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star's fans agreed with her, Kardashian's fans were unimpressed with her snarky comment.
The reality TV star's best friend, Jonathan Cheban, was quick to come to her defense and retweeted Gellar's message, adding, "Do u matter?" Ouch!
Wintour must have known she would receive backlash over her latest controversial cover decision, so she preemptively chose to address the matter 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."
Gellar is probably not the only celebrity who would like to cancel her Vogue subscription now, but since she has never made it to the front cover of the fashion magazine, many believe her comments stemmed from jealousy.
Other celebrities have reacted in different ways, and the cover has been made into a humorous spoof from Seth Rogen and James Franco, who decided to Photoshop their heads over Kimye's.
Franco uploaded the picture to his Instagram on Friday night with the caption, "Seth! Love you, dog!"
