#stopspreadingrumours 

Some people spread rumors as a way to intimidate others and gain status or popularity. But spreading rumors as a way to turn people against someone is a form of bullying & it makes the life of the talked person miserable, it can lead to depression and anxiety too as being talked about can hurt and lower the self confidence of the person even can lower the dignity of the person into a social level, even the reputation of the taked person can change. 

all are not same some people will just ignore and some will keep on passing it, so it becomes very difficult for the talked person to tell their side of the story to each and everyone even sometimes it seems like coving up the rumours which has been spreading. 

Spreading unkind gossip in person or online is not a decent or mature way to act. It hurts the person being talked about, and it intimidates other people. It can lead to serious damage to someone’s personal and professional life too.

Sadly, when other people see this kind of thing going on, they don't always stand up for what's right. They may become less friendly to the person who is being talked about because they're afraid of becoming the next target. It doesn't mean they don't care. In fact, seeing someone else getting bullied makes other people feel bad. Bullying is like meanness pollution. It affects everyone in the environment. But as it’s verbal and slander it’s easy for the person who is spreading to deny the fact.

We don't always end up getting what we want, sometimes to overcome our insecurities and cover up our faults putting into someone else’s head is not the solution. And not liking another person doesn't give someone the right to spread rumors, gossip, or putdowns. Acting like this shows a lack of courage. It's a false way to gain popularity or status. 

Real popularity comes from feeling comfortable with ourselves. People who are truly well liked treat everyone with respect and fairness. They don't put other people down or try to gain power by having "followers." They're confident and sure of themselves, so they don't have to resort to this kind of behaviour. The only way to stop this is there should be a rule or act under which verbal rumours also to be considered as criminal offence.
