As the United States presidential election draws near, candidates are upping their campaigns and it is no exception for rapper and record producer Kanye West.
The 43-year-old unveiled a promo for his 2020 presidential campaign on Twitter on Wednesday (Singapore time), featuring the phrase "Kanye 2020 vision".
The promo highlights a checked collage which features activists and celebrities including Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actress Kirsten Dunst.
The image of Dunst was lifted from a 2002 Vanity Fair profile, while the picture of Wintour, one of her at the Donna Karan Spring 2012 fashion show, can be found through a quick Google search of "Anna Wintour laughing".
However, the images have been the source of much confusion and perplexion, among both netizens and the featured individuals alike.
A source close to Wintour confirmed to People Magazine that she has not agreed to the use of the image. A representative for Dunst confirmed that the actress had not agreed either.
"What's the message here and why am I a part of it?", wrote the 38-year-old star of movies such as Marie Antoinette (2006), accompanied by a baffled emoji.
West's campaign for the presidency, launched on July 4, has been the source of much incomprehension - his political team rarely, if ever, responds to media requests for information.
Since the launch of his campaign, West has appeared, as an independent candidate, on a handful of state election ballots, including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Illinois and Missouri, Forbes magazine reported.
