Chrissy Teigen is being slammed as out-of-touch for throwing a Squid Game-inspired party for her VIP friends last week.

At the cookbook author’s soiree guest dressed up like the characters and played high-stakes children’s games, like in the dystopian series from South Korea, where indebted players take on a life-or-death competition for cash.

The internet was quick to call out Chrissy, 35, for her ‘tone-deaf’ celebration, pointing out the irony of the ultra-wealthy masquerading as the poor, desperate characters from the show.

‘I’m sorry rich people are literally so tone deaf,’ one critic tweeted. ‘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 reenacting it in her mansion.’

‘Tone deaf’: The internet was quick to call out Chrissy, 35, for her ‘tone-deaf’ celebration, pointing out the irony of the ultra-wealthy masquerading as the poor, desperate characters from the show

Another Twitter user said: ‘Taking personal offense at the complete lack of self awareness Chrissy Teigen must have in order to throw a Squid Game-themed party where she watches her rich friends “fight to the death.” The commentary just writes itself…’

Guests included Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell, according to People.

Servers were costumed as the show’s anonymous henchmen and the party was decorated with a huge piggy bank full of cash hovering above, just like in the show.

Social media from the event revealed that the guests had been competing for a trip to Napa and dinner at the Michelin-starred French Laundry restaurant. 

One person added: ‘Usually I’m a fan of Chrissy Teigen but there’s something super f**ked up and weird about spending the weekend cosplaying Squid Game with your incredibly rich friends.’

Another remarked: ‘Yknow what, I’m tired of being self aware and trying to live a judgment free life. 

‘I wish to be as ignorant as Chrissy Teigen hosting a Squid Game party with her rich LA friends.’ 

Someone else reminded the internet of Kylie Jenner’s poorly thought out Handmaid’s Tale fête from 2019, asking: ‘Who do you think missed the point more: Kylie Jenner and her Handmaid’s Tale party or Chrissy Teigen with her Squid Game party?’ 

‘The simply unmatched irony of john legend and chrissy teigen hosting a squid game party for all their rich celeb friends,’ another posted along with gleeful photos of the soiree.

The help: All of the event’s servers were costumed as the anonymous orange jumpsuit-wearing henchmen

Taking to Instagram to share a look at the festivities, she wrote: ‘Where do I even begin!! 

‘What an absolutely epic night. 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.’

Chrissy and John did not dress as the desperate characters, but instead played the murderous Robot Girl from episode one and a wealthy benefactor enjoying the battle royale in the later episodes. 

Teigen recently began her first media tour of the year to promote her latest cookbook, Cravings: All Together, a stark contrast for the usually public-facing persona who took some time to reflect on the past these last few months.

Teigen has been the target of backlash since her abusive tweets originally made in 2011 resurfaced online, including one that urged a then 16-year-old Courtney Stodden to kill themselves.   

Stodden recently claimed that Teigen has yet to personally apologize for her actions, but Chrissy told TMZ in September that she ‘reached out to’ Stodden via text.

During the same interview, Chrissy was asked about Addison Rae’s backlash for introducing herself to Donald Trump at a UFC fight, which she replied: ‘I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s**t ever again.’

Chrissy attempted to right a few of her wrongs with an apology shared to Medium in June — which was her first time speaking out since taking a social media hiatus after a host of bullying allegations came to light.

‘Hi all. It has been a VERY humbling few weeks,’ she wrote. ‘I know I’ve been quiet, and lord knows you don’t want to hear about me, but I want you to know I’ve been sitting in a hole of deserved global punishment, the ultimate “sit here and think about what you’ve done.”

She added: ‘Not a day, not a single moment has passed where I haven’t felt the crushing weight of regret for the things I’ve said in the past.’
