Larry's hatred for Lee justified ?

Larry hates Lee because he is a murderer and wanted to protect his daughter but is his hatred for him justified ?
Larry always blames Lee for everything , he punches him even though he saved his life and wants him out of the group and does Larry even know what crime Lee comitted ?
Yes he is a murderer but if he was a real psychopath then i can understand where he is coming from but he is not only mean to Lee but to everybody who isn't Lilly and Clementine . He wanted to kill a child because he thought he was bitten , he treats everybody like dirt and he is always mean .
So is his hatred for Lee justified or not ?

  • Nothing justifies trying to kill the person who saved your life, it's the definition of being a dick, funny thing is that after episode 2 I started to like him, and he died from a heart attack.
  • Because we're playing as a criminal and players are more or less obliged to be as nice as they want to be, it can come across as unjustified since Larry is directing his hate towards Lee, and the players themselves as well.

    Had Lee been a side character rather than a playable character, I have a feeling that a few more players would be on Larry's side. He's a criminal for a reason, and he's shown to have anger issues, which lead to at least one person's death (the senator). I don't blame Larry for assuming the worse, but I do blame him for taking his paranoia and bad attitude with other people too far, even towards his own daughter.
  • absolutely unjustified, imo- the only reason he had all that hate for Lee is cause he somehow learned of Lee's past. Carly I can understand, being a reporter- Larry didnt have a job that dealt in information, iirc, worked for the Army or something like that.
    Just for lulz, I replayed the 1st 2 episodes totally agreeing with Larry, throwing logic right out the window, giving him the axe, and food- even helped to open the door while he kicked Duck out: No.Matter.What. this guy was put in the game to hate you.
  • larry sucks, rip Lee
  • Outright hatred is unjustified, but I wouldn't trust Lee either in Larry's place. I wouldn't try to kill him, Larry did because he's a dick, but Larry was right to at least not trust Lee.
  • Its just the 'way' Larry found out that I dont like (ie-insert 'Lee is a killer' into Larry's memories from TTG).
    If they gave us the opportunity to outright lie to Larry and then, maybe your're cleaning up and the newspaper article about your conviction slips out of your backpocket- then I could see this level 10 hate and distrust come from Larry that cant be reversed.
  • i don't like to say 'yes' but i think Larry's hate is justified,he grew up with different emotions,different family,an old mentality of how he sees the world,and is viewing Lee with a differing perspective than most of the group.
  • I pulled the race card on Larry (for the lulz, why not- it was my 2nd playthrough)- he seemed a little taken back, but I dont remember him denying it either
  • He seemed surprised but he did not deny it, he just did not care but I do not think he was racist, just a asshole give or take.
  • ya same, in fact his surprise almost seemed a little hurt- so I felt kinda bad, ha,
