False Celebrity News for Voter Registration
Despite the viral claim, the story about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West divorcing is just a hoax. In case of Ashlee Marie Preston’s tweet, the link in post takes the user to Vote.org website’s register to vote. The link in ELLE Magazine’s tweet again takes users to register to vote on another website whenweallvote.org. Unaware of this, many social media users bought the story and went on to share it without even clicking the link and checking the actual details.
Rumors about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West divorcing have been around since Kardashian spoke on her show Keeping Up with the Kardashians about the stupid fights she and her husband had.

ELLE Magazine, however, expressed apologies after mass backlash on their false tweet.
We made a bad joke. Our passion for voter registration clouded our judgement and we are sincerely sorry. https://t.co/cYGGrpfBCz
