How to use shameful in a sentence?

  1. New York:

  2. Osama Abo El Ezz:

  3. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Indeed, ridiculously and violently, Trump administration of the United States has blown down all the rules and principles of the United Nations Security Council and its incredibility, which nations of the world had established and decided unanimously and consistently on the failure of the League of Nations for the world peace and security in a fair, and equal way. Trump's Middle East Plan, executes only the humiliation of itself; whereas, self-determination of the Palestinian nation will stay definitely with its all dimensions regardless of some Ali Babas' betrayal and treachery of slavery-minded Arabs to the Palestinian cause. One may consider such a plan as a Bare Political Mafia-ism that will result in a collapse of civilized-morality, equality, honesty, and transparent justice in the context and concept of Western and American own perspectives and values. Palestinians boldly speak; however, civilized societies cowardly stay silent. It is a sensitive and shameful matter, tragedy, and the death of humanity and human rights.

  4. Filmmaker Leslee Udwin:

    I was just so in awe of and respectful of NDTV's decision, very difficult decision for a broadcaster who has been told that broadcasting this film is now illegal, is somehow a shameful thing, to actually make that kind of statement ... was so admirable. I love NDTV. They are my heroes for doing this.

  5. Sergio Ramos:

    La Liga has lost credibility. We feel trampled upon and humiliated, it is a long time since I have seen something so grotesque and shameful that doesn't benefit us or Madrid. All of us lose credibility.
