Definition - What does Nastygram mean?

A “nastygram” is an email or other communication that is hostile, threatening or malicious. This term can be applied to any medium of communication, but in the digital era, it is commonly applied to formats like email, chatting or mobile SMS texting.

Techopedia explains Nastygram

The term “nastygram” simply refers to something that is written with a hostile intent. Nastygrams are often vulgar and demeaning to the recipient. They may include death threats or threats of violence, or they may include language that tears someone down or attacks intended to scare. However, any kind of message that is overtly negative and emotional in turn could be considered a nastygram.

In some cases, the nastygram is simply a message that someone considers an excessive overreaction to some event. For instance, someone might say something like – “I violated company policy, and my boss sent me a nastygram. (He/she) is a stickler!”
