Inside Travis Scott's Much Less Controversial Birthday Bash

Bradley Whitford sounds off on the controversial celebration.

Kylie Jenner's elaborate birthday bash for one of her best friends just drew even more backlash from a star of the show which inspired it: "The Handmaid's Tale."

In case you missed it, Twitter exploded over the weekend after Jenner chronicled the party for Stassie Karanikolaou on social media. The young makeup mogul went all out with decorations and elaborate costumes and even had everyone getting into character, with "Marthas" (AKA servants), Commanders and women in red whose names all began with "Of."

They even had "Praise Be" cocktails.

Appearing on "The Talk" this morning, Bradley Whitford was immediately asked for his thoughts on the soiree, which had already been torn apart online. Whitford joined the show as Commander Lawrence last season.

"I don't know, it seems a little tacky," he said on the show. "That costume is so kind of iconic, and it's interesting how it's changed from initially a sort of symbol of oppression to now, as the show is moving ahead, to a symbol of resistance."

Most recently, the outfits were used to protest Georgia's anti-abortion legislation.

"So, yeah, a cocktail party seems to sort of dash all that significance," Whitford added with a laugh.

Here's just some of went down inside the celebration:

Below is just a sampling of the outrage, to which Jenner hasn't responded.
