How to use inappropriate in a sentence?

  1. Theo James:

    It would be inappropriate to have them having tiffs or canoodling for hours while people are getting executed.

  2. Louis Nero:

    But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years.

  3. Malcolm Hoenlein:

    I found it very disturbing and inappropriate.

  4. Aneelah Afzali:

    I fear the narrative may shift again because we often see the wholly inappropriate conflation of the brutal behavior of groups like the Taliban with the teachings of Islam, which drives Islamophobia, and with the looming Afghan refugee crisis, we may also experience an increase in xenophobia as well.

  5. Donald Trump:

    Based on the fact that the Democratic nominating process is totally rigged and Crooked Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman Schultz will not allow Bernie Sanders to win, and now that I am the presumptive Republican nominee, it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second place finisher, likewise, the networks want to make a killing on these events and are not proving to be too generous to charitable causes, in this case, women's health issues. Therefore, as much as I want to debate Bernie Sanders -- and it would be an easy payday -- I will wait to debate the first place finisher in the Democratic Party, probably Crooked Hillary Clinton, or whoever it may be.
