    const error = this.props.error
    if (error === 'access_denied') {

      console.log('initLiff error')
      return this.setState({ isError: true })

    if (!isLoggedIn) {
      return this.redirectLogin()

			// this is where error happend
    const isFriend = await liff.getFriendship()
    if (!isFriend.friendFlag) {
      return this.redirectLogin()

  } catch (e) {
    this.setState({ isError: true })
} else {
  this.setState({ isError: true })


Resolution Tried

originally I use @line/liff 2.4.1 and I upgrade to 2.8.1 It won't help

if I remove liff.getFriendship() completely error never occur

I console.log and try to remove everything at a time still don't get anything useful So I think cause by liff.getFriendship()
