Kanye West's failed presidential campaign is confusing and has been from the moment it started, but it continues to get wildly more confusing.
In a recent tweet, Kanye shared his "2020 Vision" board, featuring a bunch of random photographs, including one of Kirsten Dunst.

Dunst herself replied to the bizarre image, asking:
"What's the message here, and why am I [a part] of it?"
The image of Dunst appears to have come from some time in the late 90s/early 2000s.
The moment was so robustly confusing that people started using memes of Dunst herself to respond to it.

Meanwhile the validity of Kanye's candidacy remains under scrutiny, as his documentation is being called into question in Wisconsin.
Closer inspection of some his campaign documents revealed signatures from folks such as Mickey Mouse and Bernie Sanders, which the state of Wisconsin is saying is likely made up or coerced. If this Kirsten Dunst faux pas is any indication, they would be correct.

Neither Dunst nor West have had anything further to say about the situation since the tweets were released, but Kanye's family continues to caution that he is currently in a losing battle with his mental health.
Earlier, Kim Kardashian West spoke about watching her husband suffer and being powerless:
"Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor."
"People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try."
So EITHER Kanye’s team thought that a Kirsten Dunst endorsement was such an obvious lock that they used this pic wi… https://t.co/jl78xntxBF— Phillip Maciak (@Phillip Maciak) 1597936212.0

Dunst does not appear, at this time, to be pursuing legal action against West. But it is unlikely that Kanye's mess of a campaign will continue for much longer.
