    Arrow spat my name at me

    Judd, who was among the first to allege sexual harassment by Weinstein, says a couple of years later she was seated across from Weinstein at a dinner. She says he brought up 'the little agreement we made," and claimed he was "looking around for the material." Then he said, " You know, Ashley, I'm going to let you out of that little agreement that we made." Judd says by then " I had come into my own, I had come into my power, I had found my voice. And I said, ' You do that, Harvey. You do that.' " And he has spat my name at me ever since." (What does the phrase in the last sentence "spat my name at me" mean).

    He used a sharp, cold delivery when he said her name.

    Don't put a space after an opening quotation mark. Make sure opening and closing quotation marks match - if you start with a single quote, you have to end with the same kind.

    Imagine that the speaker nearly spits whenever he says her name because of the hate he feels for her. Some people struggle even to say someone's name, and this is an example.

    The paragraph was excerpted from a news item in the Hindustan Times Daily (New Delhi edition) dated 29.10.2017 captioned "Judd made a deal with Weinstein".
