I would respectfully disagree on this. I feel Lily may well have been giving her long-term friend the benefit of the doubt, by extending more of a hand of loyality and trust to him, than the other friends negative comments whom she was excusing his behaviour too. If they had any early objections to him, they might have been along the lines of him looking weird, a loner, or simply being Slytherin, the latter we see from Harry's generation how at odds the Houses are. Lily accepts him despite those things so she may have dismissed any comments/objections, even as they grew and doubt started to creep in. It wasn't until directly faced with being called a Mudblood herself, it hit her very hard what her friend was becoming and the change he was undergoing. Imo.
