Kylie Jenner Receives Fierce Backlash Over ‘Controversial’ Party Video

Do you think they have a point?

Kylie Jenner has faced a backlash from fans after she held a party themed around popular TV show – A Handsmaid’s Tale.

Jenner threw the party for her friend, Anastasia Karanikolaou. However, all the female guests were sporting the red robes and white bonnets synonymous with the show.

Watch her Instagram story here…

The show is based on a dystopian book by Margaret Atwood, where women are held as slaves. The city (formerly known as the United States) is called Gilead and is now ruled by a fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state. The world is faced with environmental disasters and a plummeting birth rate. So in a desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world, the few remaining fertile women are forced into sexual servitude.

The problem a lot of her fans have with the party is that they feel that it is ‘celebrating misogyny’.


As you can see in the video of the party, women were seen greeting each other with phrases from the show, including: “Praise Be,” and “Under his eye.”

Fans took to Twitter to criticise the social media star.

Another fan added: “Uhhhhhhh Kylie Jenner hosting a Handmaids Tale themed party when the rest of us are literally living in a women hating theocracy government feels uhhhhh tone deaf as f*ck?”

Another said: “I’m legitimately DISTURBED that Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaids Tale themed party for her friend. Do they realise the show is about female oppression and r*pe???? Jesus Christ.”

However one fan decided to stick up for her.
