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 Hulu 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 inducing pictures and images from Kylie’s party—which featured the show’s signature Handmaid costumes (complete with red dress and white bonnets), 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.”

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, but especially when women’s rights and autonomy are particularly under attack. Disheartening.

Kylie Jenner is having a party themed after the Handmaid’s Tale…..so…..who’s gonna tell her that her party is literally celebrating female enslavement for their biological reproduction??

WHO IS GOING TO TELL HER

I wanna throw hard copies of the handmaid’s tale at Kylie Jenner.

She’s been making money with products of questionable quality whilst exploiting insecurities of women, uses her employees as props & now she throws a handmaid’s tale themed birthday party. What is wrong with her?

Welp. Summer 2019, everyone. What a (super weird) time to be alive.
