No it makes you look guilty for defending him. I've made that same mistake myself. My first game despite being town, I tried to call the person sussing me sus for sussing me. I also tried defending someone who was sussed. I then died D1 despite being town.
Perhaps things are different here, but in the games I've played it is never a good look to try to turn the sus on someone sussing you or to try to side with someone who is getting sussed. It's best to leave them to defend themselves.
You're making a mistake by sussing me, just like Reborn did when HE was the aggressor in sussing others for unfounded reasons. Now I'm defending myself for defending someone else...this doesn't make much sense to me.
So far I think Jew is town. Reborn could be town. Don't let his aggressiveness turn you guys off. He is like this and he is a smart player. But be wary of him overall. If Queen gives town vibes, that's great. Shakkey's also real good.
