Opprobrium is a noun that means public disgrace.

Our word of the day comes directly from Latin. It combines the prefix ‘O-B,’ meaning ‘against’ with probrum (PRO broom) which means ‘disgraceful act.’ 

Public officials who get caught taking bribes get no symphony from me. I say let them spend the rest of their careers in opprobrium.
