Is this a common slang in US? If this is common, what is the meaning of it? I found only one hit from google search. It's here.

  • @snailplane In that case, can you please give a slang word having similar meaning? Apr 26, 2014 at 14:50
  • I think it is just one step evolved from "do someone dirt", which, according to Macmillan, means "to treat someone very badly". Apr 26, 2014 at 15:04
  • Lol. I'm not a native speaker but why I immediately understand (or misunderstand) it as some category on a porn site?!

  • "Hardcore" means "the most intense" but it has a close connotation with porn. You would not use "Hardcore" in a formal context. However, it's frequently used in less-formal settings and few will be confused: "This is hardcore coffee" to mean strong coffee, Hardcore punk is a specific type of punk music, etc.

As a native speaker of American English (Midwest and East Coast) I've never encountered the word dirted in slang or any other use. An appropriate alternate word would be dissed, meaning 'disrespected'. In the original context the phrase would change to:

...you were dissed hardcore.

In this context, hardcore means 'intensely' or 'severly', as in definition 2 here. It is worth noting that while the definition shows 'hardcore' as an adjective, it can also be used as an adverb in cases such as the above example.

Hope that helps.
