If you mean antisocial in the literal sense, you could and should probably have clarified that originally.

If you mean it in the usual sense, where it's approximately synonymous with labelling Brian as 'offensive' or 'uncaring', then the charge of 'mean and unfair' seems reasonable.

Either way you shouldn't be surprised that someone would interpret in the usual sense and consider it unfair.

That's not really an accurate representation, I'm trying to say that it's anti-cooperative, which it mostly is, moreso than offensive or uncaring.
