What to say when someone calls you a liar

Comebacks and roasts if you are called a liar

Most people tell white lies to protect another person’s feelings. After all, you don’t want to tell your friend Laura that another friend said that she has a big honker of a nose. Maybe you just don’t mention it or tell Laura that people think her nose is fine, really it is the kind thing to do.

It can be kind of ironic if your parents turn around and accuse you of lying to them. After all, they were the ones to tell you whopper lies like Santa Claus and the Easter bunny exist.

There are people who lie habitually for no reason without anything to gain from lying. These folks change their stories constantly and are sneaky and lack empathy.  If you only tell white lies to protect friends, you would not be included in this category.

Next time your parents or a friend call you a liar use one of our clever comebacks. If you can think of an even better comeback, let us know in the comments below.


Our FREE Starter Guide will show you the 3 simple steps you can take right now to stand up for yourself so that you can feel confident. It’s a game changer–get it free for a limited time!

  1. Bully “You’re such a liar!”
    Me “Your whole life is a lie!”
    Others “OOHHHHHHHHHH!!!”
    Bully *Crys in background…

  2. What can I say when people say I act like a two year old? I don’t actually they’re just jealous of my beauty, intelligence, and ability to draw well.

  3. If someone is being mean like saying you’re stoopid and you lie and stuff, just agree with them or say “Ok. Ok. Ok.” They’ll get really mad.

  4. Hmmm tell them,” Just remember without stupidity there would be no intelligence and without uglyness there would be no beauty so… the word needs you after all.” Good Luck
