Facebook – What does “hide comment” mean? What happens if I choose that

facebookfacebook-tags

My friend tagged me in a random post and I wanted to remove the tag but unfortunately could not. I selected "hide comment" option but what exactly does that mean? Does that mean that the comment is now hidden from my friends so they can't see it anymore or does it mean the comment is only hidden from me?

From Facebook's Help Center:

When you hide a comment from a post on your Page, the comment will only be visible to the person who wrote it and their friends.

So if your friends are also friends with the comment's poster, then they would still be able to see the comment; otherwise, they wouldn't.
