Kirsten Dunst Doesn't Understand Why Kanye West Used Her Picture in His Campaign Posters

Kirsten Dunst was featured on Kanye West's campaign poster, which he just debuted on Twitter, but the actress expressed confusion over her inclusion.

  • Earlier this week, rapper/self-proclaimed presidential hopeful Kanye West (opens in new tab) debuted his campaign poster on Twitter.
  • On Tuesday, West shared the poster, which features pictures of several people, including actress Kirsten Dunst (opens in new tab) and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. 
  • Dunst doesn't appear to have given permission for her image to be used on the poster. The actress replied to West's tweet, writing, "What’s the message here, and why am I apart of it?" along with a shrug emoji.

Kanye West (opens in new tab) debuted his presidential campaign (opens in new tab) poster this week and Kirsten Dunst (opens in new tab) is, well, pretty confused, TBH.

The 38-year-old actress is one of several people (including Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour) featured on the poster, which West debuted on Twitter Tuesday in a tweet simply captioned "#2020VISION."

Don't assume that this means the people featured in the campaign poster are supports of West's presidential run though. Dunst (opens in new tab), for example, doesn't appear to have given permission for the smiling photo of herself to be used on the poster. The actress took to Twitter to reply to West's tweet, writing, "What’s the message here, and why am I apart of it?" along with a shrug emoji.

As of this writing, West had not replied to Dunst's tweet. According to ET Online (opens in new tab), he's pushing forward with his presidential campaign (opens in new tab), even though he missed the deadline to be put on the ballot in many states. He's reportedly still working to get his name on the ballot in several states, including Oklahoma, New Jersey, Missouri, and Illinois.
