Why are people weird after being confronted with what they did?

There was a person who misunderstood something I and one of my friends did. I explained her that what she heard wasn't all that was said and I didn't mean to do anything wrong. It was a very silly misunderstanding and not a big deal at all and me and my friend explained her the whole thing. After a few days I started hearing back a twisted version of the same story. Now some people think I did something I really didn't do and did not want to do at all and I never did anything similar to what they think I wanted to do. I confronted the person asking why they spread lies and now they are acting weird-talking down on me like I'm the one who is wrong. I have said people act like this-of course not everyone but many times this happens. Why?

Update:

What is said about me has an impact on my reputation/buiseness. I do care about it. I came out as a dishonest person for no reason who cant be trusted-its ruining my chances to grow my buiseness. My friends dont believe it but some people do.

    They had already made up tier minds based off of what they had seen/overheard, whatever. So all that explaining that you did, fell on deaf ears, ears/a person, who was not willing to listen and understand. Then, when called out on it, they refuse to believe that they acted or did anything,less then moral or upstanding. 

    This is a behavior we see from the time we are born to the time we die.

    Because all this hostility and confrontation over minor slights is annoying to most people.
