Gatsby ultimately becomes enemies with Tom because he is a bootlegger and makes his relationship with Daisy all too clear to see. He accepts an insincere dinner invitation which angers Tom even more because he begins to realize there is something going on between Gatsby and his wife.

He made little to no effort to hide it and Daisy does not help. Gatsby also tells many lies (mostly to Nick) throughout the course of the novel.

It is easy for someone to say revenge is bad when they have never felt the need for revenge. Most people would seek revenge on someone if something bad happened to them.
