Buffy actress says she's cancelling her subscription to fashion mag...
The actress tweeted: "Well... I guess I'm cancelling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???" after it was revealed the pair would grace the front of the April issue.
Others who objected to the cover included influential fashion blogger Bryanboy who wrote: "Twenty four years of loyalty to American Vogue and then this."

Their reactions were in sharp contrast to Kim Kardashian who excitedly told her followers earlier this week: "This is such a dream come true!!! Thank you @VogueMagazine for this cover! O M GGGGGG!!! I can't even breathe!”
Perhaps anticipating a backlash, Vogue editor Anna Wintour explained the decision to feature the pair in her Editor's Letter in the latest issue.
She told readers: "Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it.
"I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)"
