Post Malone hosting virtual celebrity beer pong tournament to fight COVID-19
It’s week three (who actually knows) of quarantine in the US, and droves of artists, celebrities, and creators have taken to livestreaming to keep their fans entertained whether it be virtual concerts, live Q+As, tutorials, or the like. Spicing things up with own approach, Post Malone is rounding his celebrity friends up to put on their own virtual beer pong tournament called The Ballina-Cup.
In a video message to fans, Malone eloquently expands on the origination of the idea. The tournament is said to have 16 teams including names like Machine Gun Kelly, Jonny Manziel, country music stars Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen, ex-Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Camille Kostek, and the MLB’s Trevor Bauer. The “March Madness of Beer Pong,” as it’s deemed in the tournament’s Twitter bio, has yet to announce its start date but it will be taking place on Instagram Live to remain within guidelines of “social distancing.” Stay tuned for more details as they unfold.
