Is "finicky" the right word?

Perhaps the neighbors were offended for good cause, but if not is "finicky" the right word?

I understand "finicky' to mean 挑剔,  but the neighbors are most probably overly sensitive or "touchy", meaning 过度敏感.  

For example, we say "he's a finicky eater", but "don't say anything to him about his bald head; he's very touchy about that."

I understand that people here are very touchy about corrections and I do not wish to offend. This "touchy" is not the same as in the phrase "touchy-feely".

After asking a native speaker,I think
"offend" may be the only word that fits

一般口语里就是offend了

如果细分,还有 exasperate, irritate, displese等。语境不同,作者不同,可能选择不同。
