Schrat: What does the word of Jerks.?

Christian Ulmen has launched together with colleague and friend Fahri Yardim the first German production of a streaming provider. And right in the first episode of the first season of Jerks. referred elm himself as Schrat. We ask at this point the question of meaning, use and origin.

Elms and Yardim sit together with her friends at the table and eat. Then the conversation turned to Collin Fernandez and their series relationship comes with Kay One and continues with comments on the former relationship between elms and Collin. In this conversation to elm calls himself Schrat and feature-Pretty - and as Schrat of course does not fit Collin Fernandez. Is Schrat therefore an insult?
