I find this usage odd as well as unusual:
A sign seen this evening near Scranton PA, advertising
a company that does something to/for bathrooms:

"[Are You] Embarrassed of Your Bathroom?"
'Coulda been poetic license, I guess, though I think
they could have fit three more letters on the sign so
as to suggest embarrassment ~about~ one's bathroom.
