The term "salty" is commonly used in slang to describe someone who is behaving or expressing themselves in a resentful, bitter, or irritated manner. It’s often used to describe someone who is being overly sensitive, defensive, or angry, particularly in response to criticism or perceived slights.

When someone is described as "salty," it typically implies that they are reacting with a negative or hostile attitude. The term can be used to refer to a person who is being grumpy, sarcastic, or bitter, often with an underlying tone of annoyance or frustration.

"Salty" can also be used in a playful or lighthearted way among friends or within certain contexts. In those cases, it might simply mean that someone is teasing or bantering in a humorous or slightly sarcastic manner without genuine ill feelings.
