Talking trash, disrespecting, saying something negative about someone or something. Subtext is that the thrower often ends up looking worse than the throwee.

I've heard two similar:

"holding anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of
throwing it at someone else; you are the only one who gets burned"
-supposedly Buddha

"resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person
to die"
-Malachy McCourt
