    No personality label is needed to be given to this behavior .people are a complex creatures that behave according to there moods at a particular time without thinking .more information about that person is needed before we condemn this person.

    A psychopath would do this. Psychopaths lack empathy & find joy in others pain. I would say they are evil and strange. But maybe not all of them are evil & strange. It just depends how severe the psychopath's character/behavior/actions are.

    Innocent ignorance, and too much pressure.

    Not a defect at all, according to Freud. Read his "Analysis of Wit and Humor".
