The villain plays the victim so well

I have a group chat on FB Messenger with my classmates in high school. Every now and then, members send pictures of their new cars or their new-born babies. Most often than not, they gossip about our classmates’ posted pictures on FB and laugh about it. They haven’t grown even a bit, sad to say, despite the many years after graduation. They are still immature bullies. Yesterday, one of my classmates posted a picture of him and his new boyfriend on FB. He is gay, proud of it and is flaunting it. His new bf is somewhat younger than him but I didn’t mind. Well, a member of the group chat dragged the couple’s picture and posted it there for others to see. The bullies feasted. Some labelled my gay classmate as a ‘corrupting minor’, and others mentioned about ‘child trafficking’. He tried to defend himself but what do you expect from them losers? They are deaf to their victim’s pleadings. As a result, he deleted the picture from his FB page. The bullies won. I’m still considering whether to leave the group chat or not.

@kepweng Those guys will never grow up, they only take pleasure in bullying the others, better to let them alone.

I don't know what you decided, but I would leave the group immediately. I can't stand a toxic environment like that, offline or online.

I have the same sentiments regarding with my bully high school friends. We also have this group chat on messenger. The ever bully is the one who gave me the iPhone. I just ignore them.

Thought I left a comment for this before, but perhaps I left it in the sink in the kitchen instead . I avoid FB for that reason.

@sol_cee Not at all. Even just for a second.

it's the gossiping behind your back and sharing your stuff with others without your knowledge that made me wary of it.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm in the group chat but I don't comment anything. Just observe what is happening.

Good thing he just deleted his picture. Your schoolmates act like children up to now! They're not a good friends online.

I think you should definitely leave the chat. These are terribly immature people and they do not care about anyone's feelings.

Our HS batch has a chat group also. Usually, those who are active there are those wives married to rich men. They would talk about what country to visit. I just would always see what they are talking about. Funny, how they flaunt their richness.

That's why I don't have fb, too many dramas and bullying there. I'm sure when the bullies goes to mylot, they got banned for sure.
