How do you deal with a friend who is a people pleaser?

Anonymous
I have a friend who is an extreme people pleaser. It’s getting to the point where it’s affecting our friendship. We had these roommates who weren’t very good, and my friend would always complain about their behavior to me. Some of the things our roommates did were not ok, so I would speak up about it, but not my friend. But I ended up being called a bad person for voicing my concerns to my roommates. I feel like my friend is letting me down because she feels the same exact way towards our roommates but won’t say anything. I’m not a bad person, I just don’t like being mistreated (that’s why I spoke up against my other roommates). Talking to my friend about this isn’t going to work, because she’s going to go into hermit mode, so I’m not sure what to do
