    Welcome to ELL! You are expected to provide more details, like an actual example sentence and any research you have done to answer your own question. Questions that can be easily answered by a dictionary or quick google search are off-topic. I suspect you will want to consult this dictionary entry: put off. – Em. Sep 13 '16 at 8:30

Put off is a phrasal verb that means "to be offended" or "to lose enthusiasm."

If a claim has caused someone to be offended or lose enthusiasm, then you can say "He/she was put off by the claim."
