For the Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party, the pair went as a pilgrim and a Native American. Though Hilary Duff’s pilgrim outfit alone wasn’t horribly offensive in any particular way, Jason Walsh’s Native American costume received quite the backlash online.
Here are some of the Twitter comments berating Hilary Duff for the insensitive wardrobe choice:
I can’t believe Hilary Duff looked at her boyfriend and thought “yes this costume is perfect and not offensive.”

I’d bet my life that Hilary Duff ~meant~ no harm; she just exists in a bubble of white privilege, and ~that~ does harm
so we talk about it
