For future reference learn to have a mind of your own. Never follow fools just to remain friends with them or to pacify or please them. It's obvious you made a wrong decision and now you have to pay for that by losing someone that was special in your life. Good people are hard to come by and if and when you find someone like that, don't allow fools to come between whatever relationship you two have. 10 times out of 10 those fools will never match up to the individual you are no longer friends with. If they can be hateful towards her just because..... what makes you think they are your real friends to begin with. Their simple emotions will abruptly lead them to behave recklessly at any given time. I thought peer pressure started and ended in high school.
My best advice is to apologize to your friend (that is if you still want their friendship) be sincere and thorough with your apology and leave them alone. If they understand and cherish your friend outside of what you did, in time you will be friends again.
