Game night gone wrong 😬

A game night with friends turned sour after a comment made by a last-minute guest. The group was playing a card game where they asked each other personal questions when one of the players asked about a difficult experience. The host replied that transitioning to college was hard, but a guest, Matt, made a condescending comment about his privileged life. The host then revealed that his sister died when he was 17, and the mood turned tense. The game night ended shortly after, and the host was later accused of being a jerk. Was he wrong for speaking up or was he justified in making his statement? Read on for the reactions and comments.

Matt learned a lesson about mocking other's pain 🤕
