Crowd was seeing them and they are insulting her mother like this "so shame be with mother?". Its an external and visible conflict which can everybody see. Waverly Jong said it embarrassing me, and she said "if you want to show off, so why don't you learn how to play". It means she insult her mother at the front of the crowd.
