    Depends on the situation.
    If said thing was done in front of me I might say something to them.
    If it was extremely bad or I felt in danger then I would have to say that I would not mention anything.
    Sometimes to prevent awkwardness I may not say anything if it's bad/wrong/disgusting but there's always a lot to consider what can actually be got from calling someone out. It may even make things worse.
    Maybe it were better for myself being not so directly in the past. Sometimes *it is better to weigh situations up instead of being so honestly to people.*

    As long as it's not malicious. If you and your mate are talking about something interesting/entertaining involving other people, I think that's find, but spreading rumours and secrets is awful.
