When Julius Caesar was stabbed by a large group of overthrowers, one stab in particular truly bothered him.
Turning to his great friend and confidant, he managed to utter “Et tu, Brute?” just before succumbing to his wounds.
Or at least that’s how Shakespeare decided to tell the story when he wrote about it. “You too, Brutus?” (the English translation of that Latin phrase) has come to be a universal expression of how awful it feels to get betrayed by someone you thought you could trust.
I mean, sure, the rest of the world is gonna hurt you, but when your friends do it? Well, just listen to these anonymous contributions.

Dang son, that’s some Machiavellian crap right there.

Or would you rather stab it?

Friends don’t do each other like that, man. They just don’t.
