Schadenfreude - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Schadenfreude (IPA: [ˈʃaːdənˌfʁɔʏ̯də] Audio (German) (help·info)) is enjoyment taken from the misfortune of someone else. The word has been borrowed from German by the English language[1] and is sometimes also used as a loanword by other languages. German philosopher and sociologist Theodor Adorno defined it as 'the largely unanticipated delight in the suffering of another which is cognized as trivial and/or appropriate'.[2]"
