Disrespect for the Christian religion. Extreme disrespect, I might say. It is used by "devil worshipers", who are fools for asking favors of a being who, if he exists at all, would never keep any bargain he/she made. Some people wear it as a statement to say "I don't care what anybody thinks"; which is a lie or why are they trying to convince people they are "tough."
It's a satanic symbol. It's making a mockery of the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross. Satanists often use Christian symbols and rituals only backward, upside-down or otherwise twisted in order to pervert or desecrate the original meaning. They'll even perform a mock communion ceremony but doing it in a sacrilegious way. My advise (though you didn't ask for it), stay away from anyone who uses a cross in that manner.
It's mostly used as a Satanic or anti-Christian symbol. It's called "The cross of St. Peter" because he was crucified upside down. I think some churches use this cross to honor him. Rarely ever see it used that way though.

The Cross of St. Peter or Petrine Cross is an inverted Latin cross traditionally used as a Christian symbol, but in recent times also used widely as an anti-Christ symbol (a meaning which is not valid with respect to traditional conventions of Christian symbolism)......http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upside_down_cross
A lot of people will give you the tv and movie version of what an upside down cross means, but the Apostle Stephen was crucified upside down on a cross. It is said that he did not feel worthy to die like Christ and so they did so to him upside down, at his request. He was martyred. That is the answer to your sign.
Ask lady gaga or lil wayne. he wears the upside down cross and ppl love him. i feel that wearing that symbol is the most disrespectful thing you can do. people pay homage to rappers and celebrities even when they disrespect GOD/JESUS. GOD says we should have no other Gods before us. it is blasphemous and disrespectful. Satanic worshippers and celebrities wear that symbol and many other symbols. ...watch who you honor!
