Solution

You’ve declared lateinit var share_post_buttom:Button as Button but on your XML it’s an ImageView

<ImageView
                    android:id="@+id/share_post_buttom"
                    android:layout_width="40dp"
                    android:layout_height="40dp"
                    android:layout_alignParentEnd="true"
                    android:layout_marginTop="5dp"
                    android:layout_marginEnd="10dp"
                    android:contentDescription="@string/share_the_post_into_feed"
                    android:src="@drawable/tick">

That’s why your logcat shows:

 androidx.appcompat.widget.AppCompatImageView cannot be cast to android.widget.Button
