Q: my boss seems to be treating me differently after i reported a coworker to hr for sexual comments

a coworker (female) and myself (male) went to hr about another coworker (male) for making sexual comments and asked us questions as well. after hr started an investigation the confidentality was leaked to other employees. hr said they solved both cases and until recently i found out that it was leaked from another coworker. now my boss is acting differently like not talking to me or even offering my doughnuts which he did for the whole department. rumors were spread about the leak and that the woman coworker and i are liars. i feel uncomfortable around work because i still have to work with the haresser and because my boss is acting differently. i can only imagine what is being said about me since they called the girl a "big booty hoe" for going to hr. do i have a case?
