Jennifer Aniston urged her fans who are voting in the upcoming US elections to be responsible, adding that “it’s not funny” to vote for Kanye West.

The Friends star made the remark as she revealed that she voted early for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The actress dropped her mail-in ballot at an official ballot box, as seen in her Instagram post on Oct. 23.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

#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 🙏🏼

“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,” Aniston said.

She also criticized incumbent US President Donald Trump, who she said believes racism is a non-issue.

“He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science… too many people have died,” the actress added.

“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,” Aniston stated. “[Y]our 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).”

Aniston then reminded her fellow voters that the election is not “about one candidate or one single issue.” Instead, she told them that it is about the future of the US and of the world.

“Vote for equal human rights, for love, and for decency,” she stated.

As she ended her post, Aniston pointed out that voting for West is “not funny” and appealed to her fans to be responsible.

West is on the official ballot in only a handful of US states and has no mathematical chance of winning, according to US media. Despite this, the 43-year-old rapper continues to campaign for himself and has asked his supporters to vote for him as a write-in candidate.

West launched his campaign for the White House on his social media accounts back in July.
