Bucks’ George Hill ripped for throwing Halloween party during pandemic
Milwaukee Bucks point guard George Hill is getting ripped on social media for throwing a Halloween party while the COVID-19 pandemic is still going on.
Sure, this seems like a good idea during a pandemic. Why not? pic.twitter.com/AG2HT5tmZy

Struggling to imagine a more absurd way to catch the virus than "I was at George Hill's Halloween party." I mean, "I got it directly from the President" is still there, but this is a close second. https://t.co/4oS1ufvCzq

The comments section of Hill’s Instagram post about the party is also filled with disbelief, as people question him for the decision amid the coronavirus pandemic.
This is certainly not a good look for George Hill. Hopefully, the Bucks guard faces enough backlash on social media and decides to cancel the party.
People in America are still dying from COVID-19. Even though the Halloween party will likely have the guests wearing masks, it’s not a safe thing to do since there will be a lot of people in attendance.
Hill and the Bucks made positive headlines at Walt Disney World in the NBA bubble when the team decided to boycott their playoff game on its scheduled date after Jacob Blake was shot by police officers in Wisconsin.
With that being said, it would be extremely disappointing if Hill goes through with this Halloween party, as all the good work he did in terms of fighting racism and police brutality could go out the door rather quickly.
The Bucks lost to the Miami Heat in the second round of the 2020 playoffs in five games. Hill averaged 9.5 points and 3.1 assists in the 2020 postseason in 10 contests against the Orlando Magic and Heat. He shot 47.8 percent from the field, 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free-throw line.
