Kylie Jenner decided to throw an 22nd birthday party for new bestie, Stassie Karanikolaou, inspired by "The Handmaid's Tale."
She had everyone getting into character, calling the men "Commander" and the women dressed in red robes and white bonnets, all being referred to with a name beginning with "Of," just as they do in the series.
The wait staff, offering food and drinks to the guests, were dressed as the servant-class Marthas from the show, while drinks and greetings picked up on the religious expressions from the show like "under his eye" and "may the Lord open."
Followers on Twitter were upset with this particular inspiration, even if it is Kylie's "favorite show ever."
Twitter outrage included THESE COMMENTS:
"Kylie Jenner throwing her friend a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party complete with robes, Gilead flags, “Praised be” vodka and “Under his eye” tequila is so tone deaf, at any time, but especially when women’s rights and autonomy are particularly under attack. Disheartening."
"Kylie Jenner is having a party themed after the Handmaid’s Tale.....so.....who’s gonna tell her that her party is literally celebrating female enslavement for their biological reproduction??"
"the fact that kylie jenner actually threw a “handmaid’s tale” themed birthday party is so disturbing. i am actually dumbfounded.
"Kylie Jenner throwing a Handmaid’s Tale theme party is making me CRINGE. Glamorizing Gilead is really something else."
