Crisis manager Matthew Hilzik said that he hopes everyone will be able to contextualize the case properly because there are more important things to worry about right now.
“It’s actually really sad for everyone involved. Hopefully, people will contextualize this properly in light of the real human suffering surrounding the pandemic right now,” he said.
