Low quality individual. Basically, any person deemed to be of inferior intellect, common sense, social skills, etiquette, savoir faire, etc. Usage of the term would become appropriate following a demonstrable offense of the above (someone doing something tactless, tasteless, idiotic, or that which breaks either general or local unspoken rules of society).
