"Sarcasm is "a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt." In modern usage, the word "sarcasm" is commonly interpreted as involving irony, or employs ambivalence, but traditionally sarcasm was not necessarily irony."
Though perhaps the better synonym to use would have been sardonic.
