Derogatory: adj. a critical and demeaning and disrespectful attitude

A derogatory comment is not only critical of a human’s behavior(s) and/or action(s) but it is a demeaning attitude or put down of the human which results in what can be called a disrespectful attitude also.

“It must be her mistake, she never knows what she’s doing,” or, “There’s no way she can handle that project; she’s a complete idiot,” or, “His incompetence on the project was so great that you could almost call him terminally stupid.”  are three examples of derogatory communications and/or behavior.

A criticism followed by a put down or a put down with criticism is what a derogatory communication usually is but there are communications with added insults and ridicule which embellish a derogatory commenten and make it even more disrespectful and demeaning.
