Kylie Jenner is being criticized for throwing a Handmaid’s Tale-themed birthday party for her bestie Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou. E! reports that Jenner shared a variety of videos on social media this weekend which showed party guests wearing red robes and white bonnets, similar to the outfits worn by the handmaids on the series. The show itself depicts a dystopian society in which infertile married couples of high ranking keep fertile women as sex slaves and subject them to monthly rapes in a bid to get them pregnant, which led many fans to describe Jenner’s party as “disheartening.” “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,” one person tweeted. “But especially when women’s rights and autonomy are particularly under attack.” Another added, “So…who’s gonna tell her that her party is literally celebrating female enslavement for their biological reproduction??” Guests at the party included Scott Disick's girlfriend Sofia Richie and Jenner’s assistant Victoria Villarroel, as well as Tiffany Sorya and Star Lash Extensions CEO Yris Palmer.
