Somebody who does not demonstrate strong moral values. They may use sophisticated words occasionally but their actions are often barbaric. They feel like they know better than others but their actions suggest otherwise. You may call somebody a "plebian" when they are irritating because of their self-entitled nature. They have a big head and think they are smarter than others even though their actions demonstrate they have no good reason to think this. In general, and perhaps more traditionally, a plebian is a commoner or peasant.
"You say you do the dishes but you only ever do your own dishes and only when you feel like it, stop being a useless plebian".
