Sit with the person and tell them exactly what behavior they engaged in to make you lose a measure of respect. And what behavior they need to engage in to fix the problem to boost your level of respect to pre behavior levels.
They need to know exactly what happened here, because you cannot assume they know.
Now, if the person doesn't care if you don't respect them, then don't bother doing it.
