Who the hell makes insulting remarks to the faces of complete strangers on the street?

I know women who've had total strangers make insulting propositions to their faces. I have black friends who've had total strangers walk up to them on the street and call them by various racial slurs. I've heard Asians talk about being insulted by strangers in public. I know gay people who've had insults yelled at them (and worse), and I know straight people who've been taken for gay and insulted that way. I've had strangers insult me for my fatness.

It's a big old insulting world out there.

But in this case, it was teenage/young adult women making insulting appearance-based (makeup, in particular) remarks to other young women. Nothing racial or sexual about it. :/

Doesn't sound implausible to me.
