sus (3)

clipping adjective
weird, of an activity or person’s behavior
 
This slang term is used in very informal contexts to express nearly any situation of discomfort around a person or behavior.
Etymology : : Clipping of “suspicious” after the first syllable. However, it has a less formal connotation than “suspicious”, and more accurately means “weird”. The meaning of the word broadened to encompass anyone that induces uneasy feelings upon viewing.
