A word to the wise: when you "deeply hurt" the feelings of the Great and Powerful Oz (y'know, that little green dude who is "highly venerated by his subjects," but has only been "using a lot of elaborate magic tricks and props to make himself seem 'great and powerful'") by making a statement COMPLETELY UNRELATED - just poorly (and seemingly coincidentally) timed - to said Supreme Ruler (even if it can, unfortunately, apply to the situation), you WILL feel his mighty little wrath.
(Although, if you immediately and automatically jump to the ASSumption that a disapproving comment MUST! BE ABOUT! YOUUUUU!, maybe what you did/said wasn't cool, hmm?)
To be a) publicly called out, b) privately chastised, then c) discarded by multiple people over one interpretation of my comment - without getting MY SIDE OF THE STORY - is a slap in the face. However, I'd rather have a red cheek and know the truth than continue to be "friends" with people like this: clearly these people don't know me well enough to be called my friend any longer.
ETA: Amusingly enough, my "conversation" is now one-sided as the other party deleted all replies to me. I won't delete my words: I put 'em out there, so I'll STAND behind them.
