Spanish term or phrase: vardiaran
I am trying to find the meaning for "vardiaran". I can't find this word anywhere and the following is all I have for context. Could it be misspelled? I believe the text is from Argentina.

"Lo peor de todo es que sí según vos me quieres porq dejaste que tú hermana y tus amigas me vardiaran?"

bardearan > humiliate, insult
Explanation:
I'm sure it must be a misspelling of "bardearan", from "bardear":

"Que significa bardear?"
"Es como agredir, humillar, descalificar a otro. Lo está "bardeando" (lunfardo contemporáneo argentino)"
"hola, significa insultar
saludos"

Or maybe "bad-mouth".

This source suggests that it means "tell lies about":
""bardear" en glosario de jergas y modismos de Argentina:
(pop.) Contar algo falso; dar una información falsa."

"Bardo" apparently means mud:
