Another common manipulation tactic is the attempt to get "everyone" to agree not to "like" a certain person anymore.

This is often done by those who have envy issues, social insecurity issues, and also those who have actually betrayed, scammed, abused, slandered, lied to, or otherwise hurt the person they're targeting.

(Instead of owning up to their behavior and apologizing or making amends, they try to turn the whole situation upside down and put the blame on the person they hurt.)

A person with codependency or Stockholme syndrome may also do this to a person who has STOOD UP AGAINST a bully, a gossip, or an abuser on someone else's behalf. They become the new target/scapegoat because they stood up for someone else who was being treated poorly.
