    I am British, and I do not observe many Britons using 'stupid'.   But I do observe many Americans using 'stupid' as a sort of reinforcing word, which could be seen a a mild sort of swear-word.

    It is an insulting word usually used to hurt someone's feelings, so that can make it a swear word.
