Play stupid games and you’ll win stupid prizes.

I’ve always been a fan of that saying and I gotta say that this story falls perfectly into that category.

But did this girl go too far with her actions?

She told readers that the story started with her friend who happens to be a Muslim.

AITA for helping my friend get a girl removed from the soccer team?

“I (16f) have a friend named Aysha (15f). Aysha is Muslim and wears a hijab to school which often causes people to give her dirty looks, comments, etc. I don’t know why. It’s just cloth.

There’s a girl in school who sounds like a real piece of work.

Anyway the worst instance possible was with this girl named Megan (also 15f). When we were sitting together at lunch she came up to Aysha and I and told Aysha she dared her to take her hijab off, taunting her saying she would look so pretty without it. (This was with malicious intent because I told her one time thinking she was just clueless and wanted to educate her).

She decided to take action on behalf of her friend.

Then she forcibly tried to remove her hijab. I moved her hand away and we went to the principal. Instead of getting a punishment, Megan made up a sob story about how it would harm her position on some prestigious soccer club she was in.

Fast forward to a few days ago. She makes a TikTok that said “when you get called to the principal’s office for telling the Muslim girl to take off her durag”.

She decided that this girl needed to be taught a huge lesson.

I was so livid for her. Aysha is very shy and didn’t want to seem like a snitch, so she asked me personally to email the soccer organization.

Well, I did, and she was immediately kicked off and other organizations in the area were notified of her behavior.

Now, all of her friends are in my DMs saying how horrible I am, how I’m a retard, how I need to take a joke, etc.

My parents think I should have stayed out of it, but I think I did the right thing.


Now let’s see what folks had to say about this.

This reader said she’s NTA and that she definitely did the right thing.

There’s no reality that anybody should stand for behavior like that!
