the slang “reaching” can be used in a couple of ways. you’re able to use it when someone’s over exaggerating something to make it seem worse than what it actually was, or taking something too far.
-example 1, over exaggerating-

person 1: *accidentally bumps into somebody*
person 2: hey !
person 1: oh, i’m sorry !
person 3: what happened?
person 2: they hit me on purpose, and they also insulted me for no reason ! *cries*
person 1: you reaching, fool...

-example 2, taking it too far-

*two students roasting each other for fun*
person 1: and that’s why you balding at the age of 16.
person 2: oh yeah? well that’s why your parents left you, and told you straight up, that you’re a waste of oxygen and space. it all makes sense why you’re so disrespectful towards everybody knowing that you got family issues, i mean... it’s not like you have a family.

everybody: *silence*
person 3: yo, you reaching...
person 1: *cries in orphan*
