In the play "Julius Caesar", Caesar's "friend" Brutus kills stabs him and Caesar says "Et Tu Brute?", which is where the title of the post came from.

Caesar and Brutus were great friends, but Brutus had strong feelings about upholding the will of the people and doing what's in their best interest, a group of Brutus' friends managed to trick him into thinking that Caesar was going to become a powerful dictator and bring misery to the people so he was in on the plot to kill Caesar. the words "Et tu Brute" were Caesars last words as Brutus stabbed him and has now become a way to convey a feeling of betrayal towards one you consider to be your friend.

Wasn't Brutus still Caesar's friend? He was the only conspirator to truly believe that killing Caesar was for the good of the people and not advancing his own goals, and did it to protect his friend from becoming a tyrant. Just what I can remember from it.

that's exactly it, but the line is meant to convey a feeling of betrayal of someone you consider to be your friend.

Pretty much. The play also tells you, though, that despite Brutus being an honorable man, he has a pretty ****** judge of character.

I don't think the play had to tell anyone that, it was really obvious that he was a ****** judge of character.
