Yes it is, because the ego-self believes it has something to defend, when in truth it does not.
The nature of the ego-self is to think in terms of right and wrong, better than or worse than, less than or more than etcetera, the world of opposites, comparison and judgment. Thus, if someone says something to a person, who's pretty much controlled by their ego-self; they immediately filter and interpret what's being said through their negative belief systems and then their comparison engine kicks in and causes them to feel inferior in some way.
The outward physical expression of this, as you know, is to glow red like a cherry. I've been there countless times :)
In a sense, this kind of ego action is a form of self-judgment. There are many ways to realize the truth about the nature of the ego-self and thus to transcend it. However, imho, awareness of the action of your mind is both the key and the catalyst to moving beyond the control that your ego-self has over you.
If a person has reached the epitome of being positively self-confident, then they will never be embarrassed because they've moved beyond any control by their ego-self, so they no longer have anything to defend. When I reach that place I won't bother telling you :)

partially yes, but when u look deep, embarrassment is a result of inability to love yourself unconditionally. When we do this we learn that there is nothing wrong with us, only the faulted ways of non acceptance of others.
Love, Light(wisdom), acceptance
