If you recommended someone for something, for example, a job, as an adult obviously, they would be responsible of their own actions. However, unacceptable misbehavior or unacceptable incompetence would affect you (not legally but rather socially) because you recommended them.
Is there an idiom or idiomatic expression to express the part where you would be blamed or ashamed of actions of someone whom you recommended or probably praised?
There might be many but there is this Libyan idiomatic expression the literal translation of which goes: "it would be in your face". The meaning is unacceptable or embarrassing things they do, as a result, would disgrace/embarrass you.
The lose face came to mind but I guess there might or should be another one that is more apt or specific in this common situation.
A made up example:
No, he cannot do as he wishes. I am after all the one who brought him here; any stupid mistakes like that would be "in/on my face".
