I can understand your frustration that she gets to do whatever she wants with impunity and it's not fair. Keep your own power and don't give one whit of it to a person who isn't worthy.

And while you are keeping your own power, ignoring SPQ and her antics, and NOT allowing her any more rent free headspace, it is time for a new thread

A "friend" will not "stand by you" no matter what you do. That is NOT a friend. That is an enabler. That is an accomplice.
A REAL friend will sit you down and tell you to your face to stop being a firetrucking idiot before you ruin your life and the lives of those around you.

Oh man DF, that sucks.  I'm sure he was pretty uncomfortable.  Sometimes, third parties just tolerate the way things are as a means to keeping the peace.  I have had to see that too.  Mutual friends that have liked things on social media that my MLCEdgar or his Covidwifey have posted.  I try my best not to look these days.  And if I inadvertently see something I just repeat the phrase "water off a ducks back" until I no longer care.

The Apology Every LBS Deserves

My Journey
