He Humiliated His Disabled Friend Because He Made a Joke About Him in Front of A Girl He Liked – Who’s Right and Who’s Wrong?

A man recently asked if he did something wrong by mocking his disabled friend, whom he has known for a long time. The friend joked about the man in front of a girl, and he got annoyed. Here’s what he had to say.

He’s Got a Best Friend

The man, who is 20 years of age, has been best friends with a man called George, 19, since they were in primary school together.

They went through school together, and their parents were also good friends.

The two have spent loads of time together over the years, and the man considers George a brother rather than just a friend.

The friends now live next door to each other.

Two years ago, George was unfortunately involved in a tragic car accident that resulted in him losing both of his legs.

He now has to use a wheelchair.

“After his accident, a lot of his old ‘friends’ stopped hanging out with him, but not me,” the man said.

“I still consider him my best friend, even though we spend less time together because we aren’t able to engage in some activities we used to do together like going hiking, playing soccer, etc., for obvious reasons.”

The Two Always Make Fun of Each Other

The man and George have always engaged in friendly banter with each other long before the unfortunate accident.

They will exchange phrases with each other, for example, “Hey, stupid,” though they usually do this when they are by themselves.

But the Man Draws the Line at George’s Disability

The man has never used George’s disability to tease him as he obviously, thinks such a thing is way out of line.

Recently, the man and George were hanging out in their neighborhood.

As they were, they stumbled across Sarah, someone the man had a crush on.

George is well aware that the man, his best friend, is attracted to Sarah.

The two were having a friendly conversation with the girl, and the man then asked her what she was doing later that day, and if she wanted to meet up.

Out of nowhere, George said: “Why are you asking? You are too ugly for her anyway,” with a big smirk across his face.

The man was incredibly frustrated with his friend for saying such a thing in front of his crush, Sarah.

“Without much thinking, I hit back with ‘woah, hold there, wheelchair guy, at least I can still walk,'” he said.

The man realized immediately that what he had said was wrong and felt that it was not even particularly funny.

For some reason, however, Sarah burst out laughing upon hearing the man’s comment, which only made the situation more awkward.

She then agreed actually to meet up with the man, and the two got a coffee together later that day.

In the days following the event, George has not returned any of the man’s messages or calls to him.

The man has told his friend that he is sorry for what he said and acknowledged that it was out of line.

He is sincerely worried about his best friend, as he has no other friends left apart from the man.

The man is worried that if George spends days alone inside his house, he might spiral into depression.

Though the man is well aware that he should not have said what he said, he feels that the entire situation would not have happened if his friend George had not made the tasteless comment that he did in front of Sarah.

Was He Wrong for What He Did?

As such, he has asked the internet whether he was in the wrong for what he said to his friend.

People Responded

“You were trying to ask out your crush, a brave and difficult thing to do, and he made a derogatory joke,” said one commenter.

“Sarah is an outright jerk for laughing at that comment, and if I were you, I would not want to date someone who can find that sort of insult funny, especially when it was directed at your best friend.”
