    Don't sting tone me.

    Don't sting tone me.

    Jerry stung toned Kim yesterday and they got into a fight.

    I heard it in a video but couldn't find it on the internet. Is there any word like "sting tone" or "stung tone"?

    Could you please check this video. Arnab Goswami is an Indian journalist and he is slamming the spokesperson of a party that made a derogatory remark for the soldiers and the country. Please go to 1:13 and listen. He repeats it several times. Please check it.

    Re: Don't sting tone me.

    It sounds like "don't try to shut something something". Sorry, I can't decipher what they are saying.

    Okay, but thanks for your effort but it sounded like "stung tone" to me he repeats it several times but that other person kept saying something in between so that wasn't so clear.

    Re: Don't sting tone me.

    "Do not try to stomp on me again". Maybe?

    Something like that. I wasn't sure whether it was 'stomp' or 'stamp'.

    Re: Don't sting tone me.

    I can't make any sense of the original but with some changes to the first three words, it's possible to make a grammatically correct sentence.

    Jerry's tone stung Kim and they got into a fight.

    That would mean that the tone of voice Jerry used had a negative impact on Kim.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Don't sting tone me.

    I hear the speaker clearly and repeatedly saying "Don't try that stunt on me again."

    Re: Don't sting tone me.

    The first one is very unclear but after that, it's clearly "Don't/Do not try that stunt on me again".
