Elle magazine slammed for lying about Kim Kardashian, Kanye West breakup to promote voter registration

Friday 20:57 GMT

Elle magazine came under fire Thursday for sending a false tweet to its 6.8 million followers claiming Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are “splitting up” — but the attached link directed readers to register to vote in the upcoming midterm elections. “Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are splitting up,” Elle’s verified account tweeted with emojis of a broken heart and panicked face.

HuffPost political editor Ariel Edwards-Levy wrote, “This is a link to a voter registration page, which implies that elle readers aren't interested in voting unless they're being tricked into it with fake celeb breakup news, which seems...super insulting to elle readers, actually?” “Deceptive practices are generally frowned upon with regards to electioneering,” social media guru Jerry Dunleavy wrote.
