Is this person stating this is his/her opinion or is this person stating this as a fact when it is a lie?
You won't be able to sue successfully.
The wording is exactly what needs to be said to protect the person from a lawsuit.
It is not defamation when it is someone's opinion.
However, you can certainly have a lawyer send them a cease and desist letter, threatening a lawsuit and demanding a retraction and apology and that may work,
I didn't say there is nothing you can do. I said you could not sue successfully for slander or liable (defamation) as this person is stating their opinion.
But I did say that you should have a lawyer send a letter demanding a retraction and apology.
