Chrissy Teigen called "tone deaf" after throwing Squid Game-themed party
"Squid game is about people whose lives were so awful because of being poor... and Chrissy Teigen is re-enacting it in her mansion."
Chrissy Teigen has been met with massive criticism after hosting a Squid Game-themed party.
The TV personality shared images on Instagram from the party, where she dressed up as the infamous ‘Red Light, Green Light’ doll from Netflix's hit series.
Masked guards were seen serving drinks to guests who wore green tracksuits like the game participants.
The party also featured a giant piggyback centrepiece - the place where all the prize money is held in the show.
"Where do I even begin!! What an absolutely epic night," Chrissy captioned the controversial photos.
“My dream came true of watching my friends fight to the death! Dunk tank, musical chairs, hide and seek followed by a very riveting final game of pin the tail on the donkey.”
Fans were quick to criticise the 35-year-old for completely missing the point of the show.
Squid Game tells the story of people who find themselves in severe financial debt and, with nowhere else to turn, are forced to partake in sadistic games where they fight to the death to win money - all for the entertainment of the rich.
"This is so beyond tone deaf as a millionaire to invite your rich friends over and re-enact squid games which is rooted in the violence of capitalism," one person wrote.
"Complete lack of self awareness," another person said.
"Rich people dressing up as characters from Squid Game... way to miss the entire point of the show. Super tone deaf," a third added.
"Squid game was literally about people whose lives were so awful because of being poor that they’d rather play a game of literal life or death to escape going back to poverty and Chrissy Teigen is really re-enacting it in her mansion," another said.
Chrissy has since limited comments on the post.
