I think that most people would retaliate and scold back whoever scolded them unreasonably in the first place.
I doubt that most people who got scolded for no reason would suffer in silence and not do anything in return.
I would voice out my unhappiness and dissatisfaction at anyone who verbally abused me for nothing.
It is good to fight back, as it gives a signal to the bully that you will not be easily harassed and pushed around.
People who just keep quiet are just going to continue to be abused and bullied, until they stand up to the bully themselves.
