At work we were discussing a topic that ended up being offensive and funny at the same time. As a result of this discussion, we decided we need to know if there is an adjective that would mean the something is both offensive and funny.
(As suggested following my earlier comment) Scurrilous:
Humorously insulting: a very funny collection of bawdy and scurrilous writings (-- Oxford Dictionaries Online)
I think it suggests mischief rather than hilarity, but it may be as close as you'll get. Humour and Horror aren't natural bedfellows (which is why the combination can be so delicious).
I can come up with "coarse humor"
- coarse - rude or offensive
"She found the coarse humor of her coworkers offensive."
"grossly comic" means that in addition to being funny, something is also rude and offensive.
Did you find the play funny ?
Yes, funny, grossly funny.
I'm not sure there's a exact match for this but outrageous has the correct connotations --it has a literal sense of offensive, but is often used in reference to things that are funny ("outrageously funny").
shockingly bad or excessive.
wildly exaggerated or improbable.
very bold, unusual, and startling.
Hilariously offensive describes something offensive and funny at the same time. You can visit the Forbes Magazine link to see what it means.
When you google it, you will find a lot of hits that show how some pictures and words are hilariously offensive.
Hilarious means "very funny" and it is broadly used by U.S. comedians and media because of its pronunciation.
I don't think one adjective is enough to express it.
Sarcastic: using or showing sarcasm.
Definition of sarcasm:
- sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain
- a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual, e.g. an offensive weapon.
Also derisive (characterized by or expressing derision; ridiculing; mocking)
Use the adjective derisive to describe something or someone that mocks, expresses contempt, or ridicules. You may sometimes catch your kids making derisive comments — especially if you ask them to do chores instead of whatever they think is more important. Source: vocabulary.com
EDIT1 (to respond to a comment stating that sarcasm isn't offensive):
The above definition of "sarcasm" indicates that it is "usually directed against an individual", whilst offensive is defined as "characterized by attack; aggressive".
EDIT2 (to respond to a comment stating that derisive cannot be funny):
"Derision" definition by MW:
- the use of ridicule or scorn to show contempt;
- a state of being laughed at or ridiculed: a state of being derided.
"Ridicule" definition by MW: the act of making fun of someone or something in a cruel or harsh way; harsh comments made by people who are laughing at someone or something.
