Being Jewish made me lose my lab partner 💔

A Jewish student lost her lab partner and friend after revealing her religious identity. A classmate who initially became study buddies with her and exchanged numbers eventually switched lab groups after finding out that she was Jewish. The student's professor was informed about the situation, but the classmate denied everything and blamed her for his absence. Was she wrong for telling her professor about the incident? Read on for the reactions and comments on this incident.
