The 20 Most Brutal Reactions To Kylie Jenner’s Problematic ‘Handmaid’s Tale’–Themed Party

Apparently, Handmaid’s Tale is Kylie Jenner’s very favorite TV show. She loves it so much, in fact, that she decided to fight for abortion rights, no wait, sorry, she decided to throw a Handmaid’s Tale-themed birthday party.

She took some video footage of the event, revealing her home decorated to look like the show complete with red-cloak-and-white-hat costumes for herself and her female guests to wear, and cocktails with names like “Praised Be” and “Under His Eye.” It doesn’t get any weirder than this.

If you didn’t know, the Handmaid’s Tale is a horrifying dystopian future story based on a novel by Margaret Atwood about a totalitarian regime that forces its few remaining fertile women into sexual slavery and baby incubating.

It has a lot of cultural relevance today in a country where abortion rights are under direct assault by a group of people some might argue want to see the Handmaid’s Tale become a reality, and also if you really wanted to, you could use it as a theme for a birthday party.

Predictably, people are not entirely happy with this strange and poorly-timed celebration of a piece of fiction that is far too close to becoming a reality in the U.S.
