A 17-year-old woman decided to ditch her friends while they were grieving the loss of their father. It turns out she caught them sending racist messages about her other friend. Here’s how it happened.
The Girl Had Two Friends
The young woman was friends with twin sisters named Lisa and Layla. They were inseparable for over ten years, and things were going well. “They were the pretty blonde white girls who were so kind as to guide me through school and defend me from bullies and racists,” Sam said.
She Had Mixed Ethnicity
The woman was a mix of Native Hawaiian and Arab. Because of her mixed ethnicity, she often became an easy target for bullies in high school. But she found comfort in the company of other kids like her who understood her struggles, like Andrew, who was half Azerbaijani and half Chinese.
Andrew Disliked The Twins
Andrew never really clicked with Lisa and Layla. Every time they got close to the woman, Andrew would distance himself from her. It seemed odd because the girls were generally considered kind and friendly. “When I hung out with Andrew after the pandemic ended, I noticed he’d leave my side once the twins came close to me. I found that very weird because those girls were known to be nothing but kind,” Sam explained.
No One Would Tell Her Why
So, she decided to ask Andrew about his issue with the twins. But he didn’t want to say. She also asked Lisa and Layla several times why Andrew was avoiding them. They pretended to have no idea, but their secretive giggles and sly looks made the woman suspicious.
The Twins’ Father Lost His Life
Sadly, tragedy struck. Lisa and Layla’s father died in an accident. Trying to be a supportive friend, the woman started spending more time with them, offering kindness during their difficult time. But during one hangout, something caught her attention. Lisa left her phone unlocked and unattended while she went to the bathroom to comfort her sister. Curiosity got the better of her, and the woman couldn’t resist scrolling through a private Instagram chat.
She Couldn’t Believe What She Saw
She was shocked as she read through the messages. “It was FULL of old messages about Andrew, how he ‘brought COVID to school,’ and questions like, ‘Has he ever eaten a dog?’ They even questioned how I managed to hang out with him,” the woman recounted. It was a shocking betrayal that left her feeling angry and hurt.
The Girl Cut All Ties
She’d had enough of these toxic friends. She boldly decided to stop talking to them, blocked them on all social media, and ignored their calls and messages. When they showed up at her house, she stayed in her room and asked her family to send them away. She also told Andrew everything; he supported her decision and thanked her for being honest.
People started criticizing the woman, claiming she should have stuck by her friends and cut them some slack because they were grieving. Some other friends called her a bad person for snooping through Lisa’s phone and ghosting them during their grief.
Was She Right To End The Friendship?
For some time, she remained unsure if she would ever reconcile with Lisa and Layla. She knew they crossed a major line, but a small part of her wondered if she should have been more considerate of their recent loss.
Online People Responded
There were many responses online. One person strongly supported the woman, saying, “Your friends are racists, and they got found out. Cry me a river. I couldn’t care less that you went through their phone; they’ll just use that as an excuse to make you the bad person in this situation.”
Another user added, “Your former friends gave you signs that something was off; you trusted your intuition and found proof of their racist behavior, then you used that proof to end any relationship with them. Actions have consequences, and this is their consequence.”
