You have probably been complimented on something, but intentionally or unintentionally, the comment was actually offensive. A compliment is a way in which we express admiration, appreciation or praise for someone's qualities, skills, achievements or appearance. But when can a compliment be snarky or insulting?
A "compliment" can be insulting or sarcastic if it is insincere or inappropriate. For example, if someone comments on a person's physical appearance in a way that sexualizes them or puts them on a comparative scale, it can be offensive. It is therefore important to consider the context, tone and intent of a compliment.
