As soon as Vogue released the April cover with Kardashian and baby daddy Kanye West this morning (Mar. 21), Wintour and Kardashian were “Twitterfied” by scores of critics.
It’s something akin to vilified, except the scorn is limited to 140 characters or less. Even so, critics had a field day with the controversial cover. Even celebrities weighed in.
“Well……I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???” Tweeted actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Added Hollywood scold Nikki Finke: “I’m loving the big backlash aimed at Anna Wintour for putting Kim Kardashian on Vogue cover. Issue should come with barf bag.”

I don't even read #Vogue and I'M insulted that they "picked" (I'm not convinced this was optional. lol.) Kim Kardashian for the cover. LOL.

Dear #Vogue, there is a difference between controversial and classless. Learn it.
