Cursed

analogy; adjective
Very upsetting, uncanny, or unsettling, typically because of something being really out of place.
 
This word was produced through a metaphorical extension of the word curse. Objects or images described as cursed do not literally have a supernatural hex on hem, but instead give feelings that are similar to what you might imagine you would feel in the presence of a curse. Cursed is a word typically either used on the internet or to describe things on the internet though it is becoming a more common expression in everyday speech.
Etymology : Cursed is a metaphorical extension of the word curse in its meaning as ‘evil which has been invoked upon one, that which causes severe trouble’. Curse is descended from the Old English word ‘curs’ meaning ‘a prayer that evil or harm befall one; consignment of a person to an evil fate’.
