Kylie Jenner threw a birthday party for her bestie Stassie Karanikolaou.
The theme of the party was the Handmaid’s Tale. Kylie had everyone go all out with the costumes. Well social media lit fire under Kylie for the tone-deafness of the theme. One person wrote, so who’s gonna tell her that her party is literally celebrating female enslavement for their biological reproduction.
Another wrote, does anyone want to tell her that handmaids are literally raped, stripped of their freedom and treated as cattle? What do you think of the party theme? Are people overreacting?

And I am sure you can guess how people reacted……
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.— Ana María (@anamgom) June 9, 2019
