Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale-themed party, also Twitter is pissed
The Kardashian-Jenners understand just how to throw a themed celebration. Case in point: their annual Christmas Eve celebration . But Kylie Jenner’s recent Handmaid’s Tale-themed party raised a lot of eyebrows on the web. On Saturday, June 7th, the Kylie Makeup mogul drove her friend Stassie Karanikolaou a 22nd birthday celebration that featured red robes and bonnets similar to the outfits worn by the handmaids about the Hulu series.
Jenner shared with a set of photos and videos to her Instagram Stories that reveal exactly how committed she was on the subject. Her home had been decked out in Gilead flags, celebrities dressed up as Marthas, and that she served”Praise Be ” cocktails.
Check out a couple of photographs and videos shot in the celebration below–including a snap of Scott Disick’s girlfriend, Sofia Richie.

Although we do not doubt that Jenner appears to be a real lover of The Handmaid’s Tale, many people on social media were not exactly ecstatic about the subject of her celebration –particularly since the show depicts a dystopian society where women have been stripped of all rights, frequently disputed, and forced into childbirth.
It didn’t take long for folks to call Jenner out to the party. And let’s just say that Twitter had a great deal to state regarding her glamorizing Gilead.

Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party. Because nothing says”fun” such as dressing up as girls who are routinely raped and denied fundamental human rights. pic.twitter.com/NBlbb7LExW– Santa Claus, CEO (@SantaInc) June 10, 2019

Women’s bodies get policed on a daily, a few nations Are Attempting to prohibit abortion, nevertheless Kylie Jenner believed a Handmaid’s tale theme celebration was a good thought pic.twitter.com/W80sm0RMpn– Ilke Nackerdien (@ilke_zuleika) June 9, 2019
@KylieJenner is having a Handmaid’s Tale celebration right now… Dressing up in costume and laughing at what? Violations of human rights and perpetual rape? Very confusing, disappointing, and intentionally disgraceful– Jessica Mauch (@jessicamauch) June 9, 2019
Lots of people known as the theme”tone deaf” given today’s political climate and current abortion bans.
Kylie Jenner throwing her friend a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday celebration complete with charm, Gilead flags,”Praised be” vodka and”Underneath his attention” tequila is so tone deaf, at any moment, but especially when women’s liberty and rights are especially under assault. Disheartening. — Ana María (@anamgom) June 9, 2019
The Kylie Jenner Handmaid’s Tale celebration thing isn’t tone-deaf because it’s making light of this oppression of women, it is tone-deaf as if we actually WERE in Gilead, a wealthy girl like Kylie wouldn’t BE a handmaid – she would be a spouse and possess a handmaid of her — francesca (@FranciFrown) June 10, 2019
I try to not comment on things these people do @KylieJenner projecting a Handmaid’s Tale celebration is the most tone deaf thing. We’re literally living in a period where states are slowly taking away women’s physical liberty and she is celebrating the enslavement of girls. — Katy Beth Morgan (@KayBee0311) June 9, 2019
Others questioned if she even understood that the show in any respect.
Kylie Jenner deadass threw a handmaid’s tale themed celebration…. in 2019…. Does she know what it is about??? — Ragaa (@Itsragaa) June 9, 2019
But why is Kylie Jenner using a handmaids tale party… she does realize it’s all about rape & oppression… right? — christina (@tinatheweina) June 9, 2019
I frankly believe Kylie Jenner did NOT know The Handmaids Tale if she is throwing a themed celebration about it. — Boss (@Thebossthehoss) June 9, 2019
Jenner has yet to react to the backlash, but stay tuned to find out if she talks up.
