adj.c.1300, “excessive, extravagant,” from Old French outrageus, outrajos “immoderate, excessive, violent, lawless” (Modern French outrageux), from outrage, oltrage (see outrage). Meaning “flagrantly evil” is late 14c.; modern teen slang usages of it unwittingly approach the original and etymological sense of outrage. Related: Outrageously; outrageousness.
