Defamation or slandering
If someone calls your child gay and he is not, and they are spreading the story to other family members and friends what legal recourse do I have to remedy this situation
Hi Brendon. Understandably being called Gay in your community may carry a stigma, even though the constitution is clear that there should be no discrimination against sexual orientation. Ignorant and unenlightened people still do it in this present day. Even though your child is not gay what they are doing may be hate speech. I suggest you go and lay a charge against them at the Equality court. Enquire at a Magistrates court near you.
