To be told the truth in an insensitive manner, specifically in front of a crowd; usually the crowd will consist of the same people who gassed you up and lied to you in the first place
Little Benjamin was named MVP of his team, mostly because he was funny and made everyone laugh, not because had any real athletic ability. As he thanked his team mates and coaches for their appreciation, Little Antione's dad kanyed Little Benjamin, screaming, "My son is the REAL MVP of this team! No offense to you, Ben. But we all know that this team is nothing without my son!"

Little Benjamin was mortified.

Little Antione was so embarrassed, but more for his dad than for his self. Although he (and mostly everyone else in the crowd) knew that his father was telling the truth, Little Antione shook his head and pretended to disagree.
