God's Law: Do not Commit Character Assassination

Exodus 23:1
“Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.”

I don't care how mad you get at someone, you are not supposed to lie about their character or their actions to make yourself look good, or to get revenge.

This is called "character assassination".

This is also why it is wrong to gossip about other people. You could be spreading falsehoods that make life harder for them if they are already struggling.

Not to mention, it is also illegal in court to lie on the witness stand about someone.

It is also a sin to conspire with others to ruin someone's character in such manner.
