That was all in line with Hill's behavior in the comics, so one must assume that her creators want her to be an object of scorn.
That's a remarkably ruthless take on her actions. I interpreted them quite differently, and I would bet most people who didn't already hate her from the comics were similarly understanding of her mistakes, as they were the dumb, backstabbing and weak actions of all the other characters.
