Tristan was also present at the venue - which was staging the birthday party of Stassie Karanikolaou - and though he walked up to the area where Kylie and her older sister Kendall Jenner were seated, only the model spoke to him. Another user also reached out to other netizens for help and said, "Who wants to be the one to explain Handmaids tale to Kylie Jenner". Of course, Kylie went the extra mile and transformed her residence to resemble Gilead, the fictional setting of the show, and served cocktails with names, like "Praise Be Vodka" and "Under His Eyes Tequila".

Obviously, there were some mutual friends there, too, as one of 'em was having her birthday party, which brought about the whole meeting in the first place. The Handmaid's Tale's storyline centers on the rape and enslavement of women.

While videos and photos gained traction on social media, the reality star soon began to face backlash for celebrating a show which highlights serious issues like women's rights violations. Another said, "Kylie Jenner threw a "handmaids tale" themed party because she loved the show?"

She seemed to be completely unbothered and even flipped off the cameras. "The ignorance and privilege JUMPED out".

Many others chimed in and called out Kylie Jenner for her lack of knowledge of the show.

While those protesting the recent wave of abortion bans have taken to wearing the costume as a symbol of resistance and a physical sign of oppression, some brands have attempted to capitalize on the series' success by offering "sexy" handmaid outfits - something the cast and crew, including costume designer Natalie Bronfman, condemns.
