Jennifer Aniston has urged her fans not to vote for Kanye West in the upcoming presidential election, saying doing so is “not funny”.

The Friends star took to social media to tell of her visit to the ballot box on Friday (23 October) and shared she had voted for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the US is “more divided than ever”.

Aniston uploaded images of herself at the ballot box to Instagram.

The 51-year-old captioned the snaps: "#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."

She ended the caption: "PS - It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible."

West announced his plans to run for president via Twitter back in July.

He wrote: “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States!”

In a campaign video released earlier this month, the 43-year-old said: “By turning to faith we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people, God intends us to be.”
