Sarah Michelle Gellar: 'I guess I'm canceling my Vogue subscription'

When Vogue presented Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as April's cover stars, not all of the glossy's readers were pleased. In fact, there was enough backlash for Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour to issue an official statement defending her decision to feature the controversial celebrities. In addition to backlash from readers on Twitter, members of the media and celebrities also expressed their disapproval.

As former Deadline blogger Nikki Finke puts it:

Meanwhile, BuzzFeed Senior Editor Matt Bellassai had an unconventional reason for purchasing the issue:

What was arguably the harshest reaction, though, came not from the media world or even the fashion industry itself, but from fellow celebrity Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Expressing her disapproval to her 234,000 Twitter followers is one way to get the point across, but the former Buffy star probably shouldn't expect a Vogue cover of her own anytime soon.
