Slang: Cringe-worthy

This expression describes something that is so horrible that you feel embarrassed. The horrible thing cannot involve the person who says cringe-worthy.

Annie: Hey, did you see John insulting the boss yesterday?

Jennifer: Yes, I did. It was cringe-worthy when the boss came around the corner and heard him being rude!
