To be pissed off with DH?

DH can be quite opinionated and clashes with some political beliefs with a close friend of mine. I believe everyone is entitled to their view but he will say to me that my friend is wrong etc etc but I think he should just ignore it, she doesn't try to ram anything down his throat but does post a few comments on Twitter. Today she posted an innocuous comment and he replied with a crying with laughter emoji. He only just told me and I made him delete it because I think he's just publicly mocking her and should have just left it. He's saying I'm over reacting. AIBU to be annoyed?

Yab a bit u

Sounds like they are both really strong personalities and when you publicly air your views you welcome both praise and criticism... If your not like that as a person you can see it as goady and mocking but it her people welcome debate

HOWEVER laughing emoji how immature could he not have gave his strutted rebuttal I'm sure she would have appreciated that more!!
I'd say don't get involved and let them carry on their political debates

The thing is she wasn't saying anything provocative, it was just a generalised statement.

Sorry I've had a wine my reading skills go to shit blush
Ok well if that's the case and he's replied with the immature laughing emoji then I would be pissed off too. It's hard you can't exactly apologise for his behaviour he's a grown up... but yanbu to tell him you think his reaction was out of order

Depends if she's Britain first/fascist. I couldn't hold off from expressing an opinion about disgusting bullshit like that.

JuvenileD Sat 25-Mar-17 21:06:54

She definitely isn't a fascist of any kind! Very liberal.

AtrociousCircumstance Sat 25-Mar-17 21:09:07

Ah. So your DH is right wing?

JuvenileD Sat 25-Mar-17 21:29:15

No both left wing but disagree about certain elements- Corbyn and non Corbyn.

A laughing emoji is ridiculous and childish. Hibu for thinking that it's any kind of argument to anything

Grilledaubergines Sat 25-Mar-17 21:31:07

I'd stay out of it. I'm sure they can both fight their corner.

ThePiglet59 Sat 25-Mar-17 21:31:47

They are both adults. Why should you even get involved?

'I believe everyone is entitled to their view.'

Not really.

You aren't his dm so you shouldn't have told him off!!
And you have contradicted yourself that everyone is entitled to their opinion by saying he is wrong!!

JuvenileD Sat 25-Mar-17 21:34:09

Not wrong in his opinion wrong for commenting a mocking face on her Twitter.

Christ sake. Twitter? Emojis? How old are you? Stop making passive aggressive statements on social media and let them thrash it out over a pint at the pub.

Or if he cannot control himself on social media, then he should get off it or at least unfollow/de-friend your friend as he is embarrassing you.

AtrociousCircumstance Sat 25-Mar-17 21:51:34

Oh wow. Yeah. Your DH was being a patronising, mocking dick, I'm afraid!

RunRabbitRunRabbit Sat 25-Mar-17 22:03:04


He posted a laughing emoji over a political comment he disagreed with, that your mate knows he disagrees with, and you made him delete it Holy fuck woman. That is major controlling shit.

You should dump that friend btw, you obviously think she is some sort of fragile idiot who needs protecting from emojis and opinions. Who needs enemies with friends like you?

I would be angry with DH in the OP's position, or at least if the person was much more my friend than his. If it were my friend it would be my shit to deal with or ignore. I wouldn't be impressed with my DH potentially making things awkward between us for the sake of looking clever on Twitter. If she hangs out with both of you and they're pretty close/are capable of having robust discussions already without hard feelings though, YABU. But only in that case.
