If my boyfriend gets mad and calls me stupid, does that mean I'm in an abusive relationship?

When I talk to my boyfriend, and he gets mad at something really dumb he calls me stupid, and has called me mean names before, my friends say that he does verbally abuse me but I don't think he does. Can someone please help me!
Update: he also called me a sk**k, sl*t and so forth
