Kourtney Kardashian received a backlash this week after she publicly supported her brother-in-law Kanye West’s presidential campaign by sporting a “Vote Kanye” ball cap.
The reality star, 41, shared the image on Thursday with a post on the Poosh blog on his website about the trendy “voter merchant,” which includes two of West’s fashion pieces retailing the site for $ 40 .
