What would you do if your ex made a video about you on their YouTube channel, claiming you were emotionally abusive? For this man, the answer was to sue his ex for defamation. While he won the case, he received no compensation. Instead, he used the court ruling to call out his ex's lies in the comments section of every video she posted. Was this revenge justified, or did he go too far? Some friends thought he should have just taken the court win and moved on. But what if your reputation was on the line? Was he the a**hole for going after his ex's lies?
