what word means to hint at something bad or negative

I need to know the word that has the meaning “to hint at something bad or negative” because my friend said to find the word for it. I’ve tried to go on Google but it hasn’t worked, so I need your help please.

Answer

Perhaps casting aspersions is what you are looking for.

Dropping a negative hint about someone without making an outright criticism would amount to that.

Were you casting aspersions in my direction, by any chance?
