"I felt played, but realized that if I instantly thought the video was about them then the friendship probably wasn’t the best for me anyway,” she explained
It all started when TikToker @drewbdoobdoo or Drew shared a video on the platform to let 'Marissa from New York' know that her so-called friends were not her allies. They were in fact saying mean things about her and making plans excluding her.
In the video, he said, “I hate to be the one to stick my nose where it doesn’t belong, but if your name’s Marissa, please listen up. I just walked by your friends, and I need to tell you that the weekend you’re away is not the only time that they could do their birthday party. They are choosing to do it the weekend you’re away, and you need to know," The video eventually reached @Marissameizz or Marissa who was happy that she got to know their true colors. She responded to Drew saying that she had been sent his video repeatedly and confirmed many things. She had in fact gone out of town that weekend and the friend refused to reschedule the birthday party.
According to the Daily Dot, Meizz shared that they had all met just a day before and had declared themselves besties for life. Meizz explained to BuzzFeed that she was hurt by the situation but she quickly realized that they were not good for her in the first place. “I felt played, but realized that if I instantly thought the video was about them [her friends], then the friendship probably wasn’t the best for me anyway,” she said. She then explained the reason they didn’t want her at the party and it is petty. “They wanted the boys at the party to be interested in them and not me (I think that’s a terrible reason to not invite someone),” she told Buzzfeed.
“They have yet to apologize or even reach out to me about any of this. I have decided to part ways with them and take my positivity elsewhere to create more loyal and amazing relationships," she added. Meizz went on to create 'Marissa’s Friend Club' on Instagram which helps people 'who have bad friends' to connect and organize meetups.
She shared a TikTok that the first meetup drew about 160 people. “Yesterday we had our very first meetup in Central Park in New York City, and we had about 160 people show up. We are a safe space to make friends, especially coming out of this pandemic. We know how hard it took on friendships, mental health, everything of the above," she explained, according to the Daily Dot.
