The OP shared a story about how her best friend let her down when dog passed away unexpectedly.
She called her best friend of six years for comfort, asking him first if he was available to talk. He said yes, so she called and told him what happened.

When he came off mute, he asked if she could hear him, and she said she could - but it turns out, he wasn't actually talking to her.
The OP ended the call and ignored all of her friend's text messages after that.
She was hurt that her friend would do that to her since he promised to always be there when she needed him.
Here's how people reacted.
"Your friend should have listened to you when you needed him."
"Consider forgiving him."
"The fact that he put you on mute meant he was seriously not even listening."
"Unfortunately, your friend wasn't what you needed at the time."
"You are definitely NTA here."
Maybe he just doesn't understand.
It's "just a miscommunication."
An "ignorant friend."
"Rude & inconsiderate."
"That's not a friend at all."
He's just a kid.
"Rude as hell."
"That was so disrespectful."
What's your take on this situation? Do you think the OP was overreacting, or is it understandable that she would feel hurt by her friend's actions?
Either way, it's undeniable that emotions would have been heightened in this situation. OP was already hurting, and then she felt let down by her friend on top of it.
