Kylie Jenner is no stranger to social media backlash. She’s recently gotten into hot water for her face washing technique, being called “self-made” by Forbes Magazine and even for her questionable choices when selling T-shirts.

Her latest online faux pas? The reality star is getting backlash for throwing a “Handmaid’s Tale”-themed party for her friend Anastasia Karanikolaou over the weekend.

Jenner’s Instagram timeline was filled with negative comments after she posted videos and pictures of her and her friends in the red robes and white bonnets worn by titular handmaids, oppressed female characters in Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel. The Handmaid’s Tale explores the story of fertile women who are trapped in sexual slavery under a dictatorial government.

According to the BBC, Jenner welcomed guests by saying: “Praise be, ladies. Welcome, welcome. You know The Handmaid’s Tale is my favourite show ever… welcome to Gilead.”

Many social media users were annoyed by the party’s tone-deaf theme and criticizes her for not understanding the plot and making a mockery of the book/TV series.

What do you think? Is this harmless fun or controversial given the political landscape?
