Kylie Jenner has been slammed online over quite the growing array of tasteless things, as of late, and this latest stunt is being added to the pile.

The make-up mogul knows how to throw a lavish party, but the theme of the soirée she held for her best friend Anastasia Karanikolaou is landing her in hot water.

The billionaire incorporated the totalitarian regime of Gilead to Los Angeles, hosting a Handmaid's Tale bash for her BFF. It's fair to say that people online are more than a bit p*ssed off…

The intimate gathering was attended by Scott Disick's girlfriend, Sofia Richie, and included the infamous red cloaks for all guests, and caterers and staff dressed up as 'Marthas'. 

There were also cocktails called 'Under His Eye' tequila and 'Praise Be Vodka'. 

Kylie's Instagram Story shows herself calling a male friend Commander, and using tropes from the famous dystopian series to show ownership of handmaids. 

"Welcome to Gilead," Jenner said in a social media video.

The 21-year-old was slammed for turning a show that depicts the oppression of women and rape as something to be mocked, referring to the party as 'disturbing' and 'tone deaf'.

The party comes at possibly the worst ever time, considering that numerous states over the last few weeks have passed a bill essentially banning all forms of abortion, which is highly dangerous.

A user named @anamgom tweeted;

"Kylie Jenner throwing her friend a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party complete with robes, Gilead flags … is so tone deaf, at any time, but especially when women’s rights and autonomy are particularly under attack. Disheartening."

Margaret Atwood's notorious novel appears chillingly close to the bone recently, with the Trump administration rolling back women's rights across the board. 

Many are seeing Jenner's apparent ignorance by throwing the party as a prime example of 'privilege'. The iconic red robes have become a feminist symbol of protest against women's oppression and sexual violence.

@QveenMai tweeted. "Does anyone wanna tell her that handmaids are literally raped, stripped of their freedom and treated as cattle?" I mean, does she even know?

Unsurprisingly, Jenner hasn't addressed the online backlash. Season three of The Handmaid's Tale premiered on Hulu last Wednesday.

We are oh-so-lucky today because Hulu announced it has renewed the chilling series The Handmaid's Tale!

The show, based on Margaret Atwood's equally disturbing novel, has been a critical success so far. It's already garnered over eight Primetime Emmy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards – and that's just scratching the surface of its accolades.

While we're not entirely surprised that the acclaimed drama series has been renewed, we are still so thrilled we get to follow June and others as they attempt to survive in Gilead.

The Handmaid's Tale may be difficult to watch at times, but it is undeniably an addictive series. The captivating show recently returned for its second season, and we are already finding ourselves glued to our couches.

Twitter lit up with excitement upon hearing that our favourite dystopian programme is getting a third season:

Think you'll be tuning in for season three?
