Why do people start rumors about other people?

I mean can't they do something better with their time?

    They do it because of their insecurities.They want to make themselves feel better so they try to bring someone down below them.They also do it out of envy and jealousy.They see something they wish they had,and they try and make themselves feel better about by trying to make the other person look bad and not as desirable.Some people do it to get attention,and make it seem as though they have the top news.

    It all comes down to insecurities

  • so they have something else to talk about other than their whack a** lives. i believe people who start rumors and start mess with others are just dissatisfied with their own lives.

  • They put others down to feel superior, like they're on top and have power
