'Handmaid's Tale' Wine Pulled After Social Media Backlash

"The Handmaid's Tale"

A line of "Handmaid's Tale" wines has been nixed following social media backlash from fans who believed it was in poor taste. 

The three themed wines by Lot18 and MGM were named after characters on the hit Hulu series based on Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel — Offred was a pinot noir, Ofglen a cabernet sauvignon and Serena Joy a Bordeaux blanc. 

Announced Tuesday morning, the line was swiftly pulled after critics took aim, calling it an "entirely misguided" capitalistic endeavor and "one big smh."

By Tuesday evening, the line couldn't be found on Lot18's website. 

"The Handmaid's Tale" is set in the fictional Gilead, where women are property of the state and forced into sexual submission.

The show's second season finale went live on Hulu Wednesday.
