It's the worst you can have. It means you have earned negative whistle points. You apparently flagged reviews or movies that were not abusive in the eyes of the administrator or moderator.

Check out the FAQ under "Whistle Status" to see what is truly should be flagged.

From the Help/FAQ section of the site:

Whistle Status
Q: What is the Whistle and what does it do?

A: Due to the large amount of abuse to Newgrounds by malicious users we have implemented features that allow users to help police the site. A user's Whistle level can go up or down depending on how accurately the user flags questionable content. If a user abuses their use of the whistle to flag portal entries and reviews that do not violate our terms they will lose points and eventually be stuck with a broken whistle.

Users with broken whistles have no effect on anything they attempt to flag.However, users with a broken whistle may still receive negative or positive points so they can either dig themselves a deeper hole or try to regain a normal level and effectively flag entries once again. Users who blow the whistle accurately many times can increase their whistle level to bronze, silver, gold or deity levels. Users with a higher whistle level pull more weight when they use it.
