my friend Alyson. jk a hypocrite is someone who says they are against something, but will go and do that thing. for example if i say i'm against smoking, then i go out and get high with some friends, i'm being hypocritical. btw i dont smoke lol.
Someone who tells you not to do something and then turns right around and does the exact same thing they told you not to. For example a father who has dip in his mouth and then sternly tells his kid, 'if you ever even think about putting tobacco in your mouth I'm gonna whip your butt.' They are usually trying to give you good advice but their actions prove they don't follow the same standards as what they preach.
