Another day, another Kardashian scandal.
Kylie Jenner has faced considerable criticism for throwing a Handsmaid's Tale-themed birthday party for her mate, despite the book and TV show's grim subject matter and relevance to the fight for reproductive rights in the US.

Kylie Jenner was slammed as the party's theme revolved around the popular show The Handmaid's Tale and the beauty mogul and her girl gang donned red robes and white bonnets just as in the show. 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".
"Praise be, ladies!" Kylie is heard saying in Snapchat videos while welcoming guests. Costumes evoking the show have been used in protests over women's issues in the U.S. over the past few years, particularly to mark or warn against the erosion of reproductive rights.

The party's theme was the target of particular ire, given the fact Alabama lawmakers last month passed a bill banning abortion in almost every circumstance. Other states including Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and OH have also passed heartbeat bills this year that ban abortions after six to eight weeks of pregnancy, when doctors can usually detect fetal heartbeats.
It didn't take long for people to call Jenner out for the party.
