Kim Kardashian became one of a long line of celebs to share the news that they'd voted in the US General Election, proudly displaying her "I Voted" sticker. But some fans have demanded to know whether she voted for hubby Kanye West, who announced his bid for the presidency in July, or whether she chose Donald Trump or Joe Biden.
"I VOTED! Did you?!?!" Kim tweeted, "If you are in line when the hours of operation close at the polls, they are required to stay open and allow you to vote, so do not get out of line." Kanye tweeted in July that he was running for the White House, following it with a tearful campaign launch in South Carolina.
And while some assumed that Kim voted in favour of her husband, others wanted to know if she'd opted to another candidate. YouTube star Tyler Oakley wrote: "tell us who you voted for." "For who tho?" another needed to know. "For Biden right?" a third commented, "Not Kanye." "Did you vote for Kanye?" a fourth bluntly wrote.
Others, however, reckoned the red dress was a hint that she'd voted for Trump - red being the traditional colour of the Republican Party. And after she'd re-posted, fans picked up on the edited version. "We all know it was a red dress," one wrote. Another told Kim: "Wait why did you make it black and white?? U had a red shirt on, it's ok."
Kanye had earlier tweeted a video of a ballot with his name written in, penning: "God is so good Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it's for someone I truly trust…me." He launched his campaign over the summer, holding a rally in South Carolina where he touched on topics from abortion to race relations to space travel.
And the event even saw him tear up, recalling how he had wanted Kim to get an abortion when he found out she was pregnant with eldest child North, now seven. With just a week to go before the US decides its future, Kanye made his long-awaited appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
During the show, he told host Joe that he feels his potential presidency is part of "God's plan", and that if it doesn't work out next month then he'll definitely win come 2024. "It was something God put on my heart back in 2015," he explained, "A few days before the MTV Video Awards, it hit me in the shower. And when I first thought of it I started laughing to myself. All this joy came over my body, through my soul. I just felt that energy; I felt that spirit."
Kanye later added: "I believe my calling is to be the leader of the free world. If it's in God's plan that part of my path is to be the governor, that's fine. But my calling is to be the leader of the free world."
