The Milwaukee Bucks deleted a pretty awkward Grayson Allen Tweet after his foul on Alex Caruso on Friday night. The Bulls’ social media team responded and were clearly unimpressed.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Grayson Allen was ejected during Friday night’s game against the Bulls for a flagrant 2-foul on Alex Caruso.

The play occurred late in the third quarter as Caruso was driving for a layup. As he glided towards the basket, Allen undercut him and used his left hand to hook Caruso’s right arm, sending the Bulls guard crashing to the floor. 

Allen was ejected from the game, and Caruso stayed grounded for several minutes afterwards.

Bucks post poorly-timed Grayson Allen tweet before swiftly deleting it

The Bucks and Bulls aren’t exactly the best of friends, but Milwaukee may have strained their relationship even more with a pretty ill-timed Grayson Allen tweet.

On Saturday morning, the Bucks tweeted a video of Allen eating a doughnut, with the caption: ‘good morning.’ It was terrible times given what happened the night before, with NBA commentator Robe Perez saying: ‘has there ever been a tweet more guaranteed to get deleted than this one.’

The tweet has since been deleted by the Bucks, but not before it was screenshotted.

The Bulls’ social media team even responded to the Bucks’ Grayson Allen tweet and were clearly not impressed. They wrote under the deleted tweet: ‘Seriously???’

Caruso responds, is out for six to eight weeks

After the game, Caruso said the foul was “kind of b*******’. “Dude just grabbed me out of the air,” Caruso said. “I don’t know what else you can do about it. I’m just glad that I didn’t have any major scary injuries right away.”

“For Alex to be in the air and for [Allen] to take him down like that, he could’ve ended his career,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan added. “He has a history of this. That to me was really — it was really dangerous. I hope the league takes a hard look at something like that because that could have really, really seriously hurt him.”

Allen has somewhat of a reputation after his history playing college basketball at Duke. However, this was his first flagrant foul of the season.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Bulls have “expressed public and private outrage” to the league office in regards to Allen’s actions. On Saturday, the Bulls announced that Caruso sustained a fractured wrist, and will be out for six to eight weeks. He will undergo surgery next week.
