Kim Kardashian West used her social media prowess on Saturday to urge Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott to halt a death row inmate’s scheduled execution.

"Please @GovAbott How can you execute a man when since his trial, substantial evidence that would exonerate Rodney Reed has come forward and even implicate the other person of interest. I URGE YOU TO DO THE RIGHT THING."

Kim Kardashian wants to help Greta Thunberg's social media presence

Kim Kardashian told Reuters Tuesday that she'd like to help teen climate activist Greta Thunberg's parents manage the 16-year-old's social media presence because "speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities."

Why it matters: The reality TV star has proven herself to be an effective political navigator in the Trump administration, helping to free over a dozen inmates in 2019 and bringing rapper A$AP Rocky's detention in Sweden to President Trump's attention. Thunberg has more than 10 million followers between her Instagram and Twitter accounts while Kardashian has nearly 150 million on Instagram alone.
