Back biting someone who is more sinful

Q: If anyone back bites another person but then the other person done more sin than the person who has back bited, and Allah knows that the person who has back bited has less sin than the other person, will Allah calculate to remove the sin for the person who back bited?

A: Any act that violates the command of Allah Ta`ala is a sin. So both are responsible for their sin. Both should make taubah. 

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
