: In the case of this phrase, at least in the U.S., there is really only the literal sense. The other sense is conveyed by "look down on." Another phrase is: Looked down her nose at him. In Italian, you can say, "Da alto in basso," which means "From high to low." SS

"Dissed" in current slang. Disrespected, in full form. Or how about belittled, derided, despised, disregarded, put down, rejected, ran down, spurned, or undervalued?
