Definition of opprobrium:

1 : something that brings disgrace
2 a : public disgrace or ill fame that follows from conduct considered grossly wrong or vicious
2 b : contempt, reproach

I can only imagine the opprobrium I would have received from my parents if I hadn’t done well in school.

Or, perhaps, many a man has received widespread opprobrium in the #metoo movement.
