So I was watching a video on youtube (https://youtu.be/hfXXbmTpkrw?t=377) where the "host" of the show (I don't know if you can call him that) is commentating on a video of a famous youtube personality being offensive to one of his fans. He uses this sentence:
(the "host" of the show): He's being incredibly insultive to the guy.
Now, why didn't he use the adjective insulting to refer to the guy, as in:
He's just being incredibly insulting to the guy.
Mind you, I wasn't able to find a definition of the word "insultive" in many well-known dictionaries online such as, Cambridge, Collins, Or Webster, but some lesser known dictionaries provid a definition, stating that it's synonymous with insulting.
Also https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/insultive says about it:
This word (insultive) is about 0.01% as common as insulting and does not appear in most dictionaries.
I also did an Ngram look-up which confirmed the above.
is the use of "insultive" totally and utterly wrong? should it be avoided?
