How to use belittling in a sentence?

  1. Rachael Ray:

    I grew up on sets -- that is the family I grew up with and those people become your families. You spend more time with them than you do your own families sometimes, i'm never coming in jaded, I'm never coming in inexperienced, I'm coming in as a member of the team, and that's why I'll never call this my show. Because I don't think I deserve to call it my show. That's belittling of every person that puts their effort, energy and time into making this show.
