Tease a person
Tease at a person

Are they both correct? I always say "tease a person" but my friend think "tease at a person" is also right. I am not sure. Thanks all!!

    The options the dictionary gives are: tease somebody: He used to tease her mercilessly. Tease somebody about something She used to tease me about my hair.

    Yeah, so its easy to prove "tease someone" is right, but its hard to say "tease at someone" is wrong if only rely on dictionary. :(
