An insult is a spoken or written phrase or a physical act that is degrading or offensive to others and which may be done intentionally or accidentally.

Insults may range from a single derogatory word (such as calling someone an "idiot" or even something more profane), to complete articles or books.

Insulting acts may comprise making an offensive gesture, desecrating a holy book or defiling symbols of national identity like the flag. Accidental insults may result from unfamiliarity with other cultures.
