Drag

verb
To insult someone. Often used as a challenge when one feels they have been insulted by someone. Martha: “Cynthia, you might want to lay off the wine. You’re starting to look a bit drunk.” Cynthia: “Drag me, Martha.”
 
The term is a metaphorical shift, associating the act of dragging someone or something along the ground with insulting or disrespecting them. The term may be related to the phrase “drag through the mud”.
Etymology : From the Old Norse draga “to draw” (etymonline)
