There is different routes one could take to deal with situations like this.
Since bullies are people too, some tactics might work better against some then others.
Here's the 3 tactic options I recommend.
1. Ignore them - If they aren't ks'ing you, or stealing bosses and its just verbal, you can block them(or don't so you can hear what they say/make sure they aren't misleading people).
2. Try to reason with them - Since they are a person, you can reason with them. Some bullies don't even know they are bullies, and just need to be told so. Some people might have to be threatened with action if they continue, just don't let it turn into a slanderfest or curseout.
3. Stand up to them - Most bullies only pick on people who will allow it to continue. If you make it known that them messing with you is a bad idea, then they will probably learn and respect it. You will have to use your imagination and wits for this one. You can either try to disprove everything they say+maybe reverse it on them, or bring up the situation to the community so the karma hits them. Those are just some examples, not everything to it.
Number 3 is my go-to for everything personally, since I'm not the type to take crap from anyone. It's not because I'm closed minded, in fact I'm very open minded, but if someone tries to put me down they are going to regret it. In lugh, before my main was endgame(back in 2013 not now), I was involved in some drama with people trying to bash me or disagree with me. Basically everything negative that was said to me though, I disproved or fought. When the world later split into two sides that were fighting each other, and I chose one, people from both sides still respected me for not backing down or caving in on anything. Even the leaders of the enemy clan secretly liked me, but it might have been more of a fear thing knowing that if they said anything about me they would be disproven really quickly and look bad as a result of it.
