2. A person says something so incredibly stupid that it doesn't deserve a response, thus the person is ignored.

A form of body language what occurs when a person is ignoring you completely. It is usually an action represented by turning your black/shoulder towards the target and not communicating to them even though the subject is obviously attempting to talk to you.

It is usually caused when you do something worth deserving that amount of ignoring such as date raping them, completely disregarding their needs, and, but not limited to, abusing their attributes for your own bitch-ass needs.
When you do something completely uncalled for and is very hateful of you for doing that and (s)he ignores you for the longest time.

Or when you try to talk to someone but they just walk away or turn their back towards you.

"Dude, stop giving her cold shoulder just because she dumped you."
