I believe it's the 3rd time. The first time, I did nothing but just walked away and kind of giggled. The other times (including this recent one), it wasn't too funny anymore but I just walked away.
Still, I didn't participate in that. Is it still wrong to do nothing?

Yes, although you didn't participate, it was still wrong to do nothing. When it comes to bullying, silence is a form of accepting the injustice that is going on.
If you want to shut a bully up then throw some verbal jabs at them with a ton of confidence and a smirk. Redirect the spotlight onto them loudly, drawing negative attention to them for once and crack a couple of jokes with a devlish grin. :) That's always what's worked well for me but if you aren't self-assured or confident enough to do that then let an authority figure know what's going on. Extreme confidence and being very vocal with a bit of smart-assery is bully repellant. Bullies feed off of passive behavior, silence, and no objection.1
