Ramadan is not only about abstaining from food, but involves being patient and learning to control your mouth, eyes and limbs from committing haram.
The Prophet ﷺ said, “Whoever does not give up false speech and acting upon it, Allah has no need of his giving up his food and drink.”
False speech includes all kinds of speech that are haram, lying, backbiting, slandering, insulting and cursing.
Are You Really Fasting?
If you are being mocked or insulted whilst you are fasting, respond by saying I am fasting, I am fasting as the Prophet ﷺ instructed us to do. Also if you are in an argument walk away and try to refrain from such actions.
As the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “When one of you is fasting he should neither behave in an obscene manner nor foolishly, if a man fights or abuses him, he should say, I am fasting I am fasting.”
