Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid's Tale-themed party, and Twitter is pissed
The Kardashian-Jenners know how to throw a themed party. Case in point: their annual Christmas Eve bash. But Kylie Jenner’s recent Handmaid’s Tale-themed celebration raised a lot of eyebrows online. On Saturday, June 7th, the Kylie Cosmetics mogul threw her friend Stassie Karanikolaou a 22nd birthday party that featured red robes and bonnets similar to the outfits worn by the handmaids on the Hulu series.
Jenner shared a series of photos and videos to her Instagram Stories that show just how committed she was to the theme. Her home was decked out in Gilead flags, actors dressed up as Marthas, and she served “Praise Be Vodka” cocktails.
Check out a few photos and videos taken at the party below—including a snap of Scott Disick’s girlfriend, Sofia Richie.

And here’s another of them all dressed up in their Handmaid’s Tale outfits.
Though we don’t doubt that Jenner seems to be a genuine fan of The Handmaid’s Tale, many people on social media weren’t exactly thrilled about the theme of her party—especially because the show depicts a dystopian society in which women are stripped of all rights, regularly raped, and forced into childbirth.
It didn’t take long for people to call Jenner out for the party. And let’s just say that Twitter had a lot to say about her glamorizing Gilead.
Many people called the theme “tone deaf” given today’s political climate and recent abortion bans.
Others questioned if she even understood the show at all.
Jenner has yet to respond to the backlash, but stay tuned to see if she speaks up.
