Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale-themed party for her BFF Stassie Karanikolaou's birthday on Saturday.
What ever happened to classic themes, such as '80s or under-the-sea? I guess Jenner thought “eerily familiar dystopian future” would be more fun. And although the point of the party was also to all watch the first episode of the series' new season, some fans are still a bit annoyed at the choice of theme.
The Handmaid's Tale depicts a future where women are enslaved and used for having babies for the barren upper class. Many fans are calling Kylie out on Twitter for being culturally tone deaf, especially in light of the recent abortion bans happening around the country. Kylie has not responded publicly to the backlash.
The viewing party occurred just a day after Jenner was spotted at WeHo club Bootsy Bellows for Karanikolaou's birthday, a shin-dig her ex-best friend Jordyn Woods, and Khloé Kardashian’s ex, Tristan Thompson, also attended.
Woods and Jenner split as besties in February when it came out that Thompson and Woods had kissed. Though it has been reported that they are patching up their friendship, things are still apparently tense between the two.
For the Handmaid's Tale event, Kylie committed to the theme, decorating her home with details from the series, including crimson touches and personalized letters for the table place cards.
The party was also attended by Sofia Richie, who is currently dating Kourtney Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Scott Disick.
