Ugly American is a term that describes rude behavior by some Americans when they are guests in other countries, such as disparaging their hosts or vandalizing property.

Overrated Sports Star Ryan Lochte did both near the end of the 2016 Summer Olympics, creating a massive news story of falsehoods that disparaged the gracious host country of Brazil at a time when they should have been receiving credit for their hospitality.

The term "Ugly American" can also refer to self-centered, self-aggrandizing behavior by Americans in international sporting events, contrary to basic standards of sportsmanship.
