Chrissy Teigen threw a Squid Game themed party for friends and her, and though it may look fun, several people have been slamming Teigen for being tone-deaf. The South Korean show follows the story of around 400 people gravely in debt, recruited to play six childhood games to earn money. Directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show also features a set of evil VIPs who bet on the players for large sums.
The show sounds morbid, and having a party based on that, doesn’t settle in well with the fans. Teigen shared photos of the night on social media. Several celebrities could be seen partying with her and her husband and singer, John Legend. Shay Mitchell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson are a few of the many actors who joined.
“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 Teigen captioned her Instagram post, featuring several photos from the Squid Game themed party.
Fans quickly started to comment, and some even took to Twitter to express their opinions of the Squid Game themed party thrown by Chrissy Teigen. “Big yikes bro. Imagine watching an entire series front to back and not understanding it even one little bit,” one user said. “Chrissy Teigen threw a Squid Game themed party and once again missed the entire point,” said one user.
Another user said on Twitter, “I’m sorry rich people are literally so tone-deaf. 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.”

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.

Usually I’m a fan of Chrissy Teigen but there’s something super fucked up and weird about spending the weekend cosplaying Squid Game with your incredibly rich friends.
