- Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale–themed party for her best friend Stassie Karanikolaou.
- People are accusing Kylie of being hugely tone deaf, and she’s getting dragged on Twitter.
Today in news I wasn’t even a little mentally prepared for, Kylie Jenner spent the weekend doing the absolute most and throwing her best friend
Jordyn Woods Stassie Karanikolaou a 22nd birthday party. But not just any 22nd birthday party. A Handmaid’s Tale–themed birthday party.
You know? The Handmaid’s Tale? The dystopian show about the patriarchy stripping women of their rights and stealing their children? Yeah, well, not sure what about it screams “WILD 22ND BIRTHDAY PARTY RIGHT THIS WAY!” but Kylie loves herself a theme and she turned it out. Or something.
Instagram is full of super-WTF-inducing pictures and images from Kylie’s party—which featured the show’s signature Handmaid costumes (complete with red dress and white bonnet), Gilead flags as decor, and random actors cos-playing as Marthas. And naturally/understandably/inevitably, the internet is spiraling.
Fans are calling Kylie out for being incredibly tone deaf, and this tweet probably says it best: “Women’s bodies get policed on a daily, some states are trying to ban abortion, yet Kylie Jenner thought a Handmaid’s Tale theme party was a good idea.” Oh, and this one: “Can someone please reassure me that ‘Kylie Jenner’s Handmaid’s Tale–Themed Party’ is a phrase I hallucinated on this festering grease trap of a hellsite.”
Welp. Summer 2019, everyone. What a (super-weird) time to be alive.
