Man faces backlash for kicking girl out of friend group 🤔

A man's decision to exclude a girl from his group of friends has caused a stir on social media. The man had a casual friendship with the girl, who was also part of his long-standing friend group. He had previously expressed interest in her, but she made it clear that she only wanted to be friends.

After she complained about paying full price at his bar, and caused drama with another girl he was talking to, he asked her not to show up at the bar anymore. This led to her friends confronting him and accusing him of unfairly isolating her from the group.

While some people on social media are calling him an a**hole, others are defending his decision. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below about the situation.
