Defamation

Defamation or “defamation of character” is spoken or written words that falsely and negatively reflect on a living person’s reputation.

A great example of defamation would be accusing someone of sexaul misconduct. For instance the Michael Jackson lawsuits. The young boys family went all those years saying that Michael Jackson did inappropriate things to him. But when Jackson passed they came out and said it was a lie. Now the whole world thinks differently of him because of a lie. That’s defamation of character.
