Can I get charged with harassment for sending a hate message over Instagram?

I sent a message to someone over Instagram saying what a piece of trash he is. There is no racist remarks in the message or threats to him. Just a hate message. Then I got a message on Facebook from his brother threatening to call the police on Facebook. I reported his message then I blocked him.

    You wont get Charged Because you did not Make any Direct Threats to Hurt him or anything

    Police will only get Involved if you made any Threats

    Delete your post. Leave it at that. The police don’t have time for name calling.

    Hate messages are not covered by the First Amendment. Watch it. You are treading on thin ice.

    The police would only care if you continued to harass them, otherwise they won't waste their time with some one time thing like this.
