How to use insensitive in a sentence?

  1. Sean Spicer:

    I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. Frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which there is no comparison, and for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.

  2. Suzanne Bonamici:

    Our nation has an unforgivable history of murdering Black men and women, comparing a lynching to holding the president accountable is hurtful and insensitive, and ignores the overt White supremacy on display during the insurrection Wednesday.

  3. Russell Simmons:

    Bernie Sanders is over-promising. He's insensitive to the plight of black people, and what good is it if you don't take lobbyist money and don't acknowledge the No. 1 threat to America and to the world is the factory farming lobby because it is poisoning the planet quickly.

  4. Winterville Charter Academy:

    The school leadership team acted immediately upon learning about a racially insensitive lesson and student remarks, and is currently working to address ongoing concerns from parents that racially insensitive student remarks continue, while student and staff privacy rights prevent me from sharing specific details, what I can share is that we will not tolerate racism in our school community and will continue taking swift action that addresses these issues.

  5. Bill Murray:

    You know what I always thought was funny as a little kid isn't necessarily the same as what's funny now. Things change and the times change, so it's important for me to figure it out, i think the most important thing is that it's best for the other person. I thought about and that it's not best for the other person, doesn't matter what happens for me. And that gave me a great deal of comfort and relaxation because your brain doesn't operate well when you're in the unknown, when you're thinking like,' well, how can I be so... how can I misperceive ? How can I be so inaccurate and so insensitive,' when you think you're being sensitive to some sensibility that you've had for a long time.
