Q: What is defamation of character?

A: Defamation of character is either oral words or written words, which are made to somebody and published. Meaning sent to many other people for the purpose of humiliating somebody, for the purpose of trying to bring a person in disrepute in his or her profession. The statements must be false and must be made without justification. That is defamation of character. The written defamation of character is called libel. The oral, or verbal defamation of character, is called slander. A person has a defamation lawsuit against a person or company who makes such comments about them, but they must be false statements of fact.
