Defamation Law Fact: Specific types of statements may be considered so inherently defamatory that a defamation plaintiff need not prove they suffered any harm or injury as a result. In the wild world of defamation and libel law, such statements are generally classified as ‘Per Se’. Most states recognize four types of statements as ‘defamatory per se’: (1) Statements charging a person with having committed a crime, (2) Statements imputing unchastity on a person, (3) Statements alleging an individual has a sexually transmitted disease (or other loathsome disease), and (4) Statements injuring an individual in the course of their trade, business, or profession.

The Online Abuse Stops Now!
The Facts: What is CheaterXposed.Us?
CheaterXposed.Us is a new and growing homewrecker and cheater shaming/exposing website for users to publish reports on unfaithful husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, spouses, and more. According to SEMRush (a marketing analytics and keyword research platform), CheaterXposed.Us only began to catch traction back in January 2019. It has since amassed a loyal user-base and hundreds (if not thousands) of cheater and homewrecker exposing reports.
Most cheater exposing and reporting bulletin boards began with an honest intention to help protect others from unfaithful spouses and individuals. Unfortunately, due to the rise of user-generated content platforms, the spread of the Internet, and protections granted to anonymous speech online, CheaterXposed.Us and countless other cheater reporting websites have morphed into hot-beds for online defamation and libelous attacks.
It’s important to note that CheaterXposed.Us is separate from CheaterXposed.com – CheaterXposed.com is owned by CyberExtortioner.com and hails itself as a truly open and free platform for speech. CheaterXposed.com’s ‘About Us’ page accuses CheaterXposed.Us of being a website set up purely for extortion, which leeches reviews and reports from other popular sites and then charges for its removal.
When landing on CheaterXposed.Us’s homepage, users are encouraged to “Expose Against Cheaters, Homewreckers,” and may sort through posts by name, geographic region, or profession. Images of accused cheaters fill the site, along with damning allegations of individuals being “rapists,” “woman beaters,” and “sluts.” And, there’s no comprehensive registration for users looking to “dish” on unfaithful persons, with CheaterXposed only requiring users to provide an email address – something which can be easily circumvented with a throwaway email.
While identification of malicious online posters and defamers once seemed impossible and unnecessarily time-consuming, that’s no longer the case. Let’s now turn to how you can secure a guaranteed defamation and post removal from CheaterXposed.Us (and other popular cheater shaming, scam reporting, and consumer advocacy websites).
Libel Removal Tip: While you might think responding to an Internet defamer and online troll is the best course of action to combat online defamation, it generally isn’t. Before doing so, we strongly recommend considering the pros and cons of doing so. One one hand, the malicious online troll/poster could step down and remove the content, post, or comment. On the other hand, they might further disseminate the post across countless other user-generated content platforms and websites, making for an even more difficult removal process.

U.S. Defamation Law Fact: There’s numerous defamation defenses a defendant may rely upon when confronted with a libel or slander action in the United States. Three of the most common defenses to libel and slander lawsuits include: (1) Opinion, (2) Truth/Falsity, (3) Privilege.
Are CheaterXposed.Us & Cheater Shaming Websites Legal?
Simply put, CheaterXposed.Us and other cheater exposing and shaming websites ARE legal in the United States.
CheaterXposed and other cheater, scam, homewrecker reporting websites are classified as user-generated content platforms, and protected under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) – a landmark piece of Internet legislation drafted in the mid-1990s. Specifically, Section 230 of the CDA reads:
“No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”
Just as telephone companies are not held liable for the sometimes criminal and malicious acts discussed on their landlines, CheaterXposed.Us and other user-generated content platforms will not be held liable for information and content posted by third-parties to their website or platform. However, the website or online bulletin board/platform must generally satisfy the following three-pronged criteria to enjoy immunity under the CDA.
- The website or platform must be a “provider or user” of an interactive computer service (ISP),
- The cause of action must treat the website or platform as the actual publisher or speaker of the contentious information and content at issue,
- The information or content was in fact provided by a third-party information content provider (ex. A commenter or poster).
Unsurprisingly, Section 230 of the CDA has generated considerable controversy due to what critics opine to be a failure to properly balance free, anonymous online speech and necessary protections for specific endangered classes. Additionally, other critics say that it grants near complete immunity for internet service providers (ISPs) with regard to the torts committed by users, posters, and commenters.
There are however several exceptions to the Communications Decency Act, which will require a website or ISP to act expeditiously or risk losing immunity granted. Several fundamental exceptions to the CDA include:
- Copyright and intellectual property infringement:
- Criminal law violations,
- Material editing of content by the website/ISP,
- Promissory Estoppel, and
- Encouragement to post illegal content.

Defamation Removal Tip: Determining the scope of online defamation can sometimes be extremely difficult, however, it may help better provide an attorney or defamation removal expert with a better base to work off of. Before bringing an online defamation claim, we recommend documenting several notable details surrounding the defamatory/libelous article/post/content, such as; the date you first discovered it, the website(s) it was published on, and (3) the search results entered to find said link/content/post.
How to Prove Defamation of Character
Defamation of character simply refers to any false assertion of fact communicated to a third-party, which subsequently causes harm or injury to another person’s reputation. Defamation of character, also known as ‘defamation’ for short, may be broken down into two core categories; namely, libel and slander.
- Slander: a false spoken statement disseminated to a third-party, which subsequently causes harm or injury to another’s reputation.
- Libel: a false written (including photographs, videos, and other media) statement published/disseminated to a third-party, which subsequently causes harm or injury to another’s reputation.
When proving both libel and slander (defamation of character claims), a defamation plaintiff will generally be required to prove the following four elements:
- A false statement of fact ‘of and concerning’ the plaintiff,
- Published to a third-party,
- With at least ordinary negligence,
Do note however that there are specific types of statements which United States defamation and libel law recognizes as so inherently defamatory and inflammatory, that a defamation plaintiff need not prove the fourth element (damages). Such statements are referred to as “defamatory per se.” Most states recognize four types of statements as ‘per se’; (1) statements charging a person with having committed a crime, (2) statements imputing a sexual or loathsome disease on a person, (3) statements imputing unchastity on a person, (4) statements which tend to injure a person in their trade, profession, or skill.
So, how is defamation per se relevant to CheaterXposed.Us and cheater shaming websites?
Well, some of the most popular types of allegations lodged on CheaterXposed.Us and cheater reporting websites include those of unchastity and having a sexually transmitted disease. Additionally, it’s not uncommon for libelous statements to attack both a person’s sexual and personal history, along with their professional history as well.
Do understand that when confronting libelous and defamatory online attacks on CheaterXposed that it may give rise to a ‘per se’ action.
Internet Reputation & Brand Management Tip: If you’re a company or service with an online presence, it’s important to approach online defamation with caution, as it could ultimately stand to close down your business/service for good. Before responding to libelous and false online attacks/reviews/posts, consider whether there are any legal obligations (ex. Hippocratic Oath) required you uphold by your profession, the scope of defamation, and the potential fallout from responding.
