* Creator/{{Konami}} seemed to have fallen into a death-spiral in 2015; they basically forced Creator/HideoKojima out by rushing out ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV'' and cancelling his upcoming ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' project that most agreed would've revitalized the franchise, have completely shut down all AAA game development save for ''VideoGame/ProEvolutionSoccer'', resorted to draconian business practices that could see seasoned veterans of game creation relegated to menial labor like ''assembly line work'', and have refocused almost all of their efforts on Mobile and Pachinko game development, the latter of which they've lashed some of their most treasured IPs (like ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' and ''Franchise/MetalGear'') to. While some of these decisions are mitigated to their Japanese audience who will at least get the pachislot games, most of their Western fanbase has been calling for the heads of every executive and marketing guy Konami has, and Konami has done nothing to mitigate this other than dig themselves further into this hole.

* {{Creator/Gallagher}}'s stand-up career has never recovered from his previous fame in the 80s, where he was still viewed as more of a novelty act than anything else; over the years, his routines have become decidedly more racist and misogynist, and [[RantInducingSlight his vocal criticisms of basic, inconsequential things that modern stand-up comedians do]] (such as talk about themselves on stage or drink water) haven't even led to him being perceived as "edgy" or "controversial" -- instead, most people in the industry either pity or mock him. [[http://www.avclub.com/article/gallagher-36622 His bizarre, rambling interview]] with ''The A.V. Club'' or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ts8Wn4bD5pE storming off the set]] of ''WTF With Marc Maron'' don't lend much credence to his claims of "professionalism", either.

* TV presenter and journalist Vanessa Feltz, famous for TV chat shows and her stint on Radio/ChrisEvans' groundbreaking ''Series/TheBigBreakfast'', entered ''Celebrity Big Brother'' only to completely collapse under the pressures of being on camera continually and having nowhere to retreat to. Fellow contestants repeatedly signalled alarm at her erratic behaviour and clear mental distress, but the TV company involved did not pull her out until she'd had a pretty near total breakdown on set. Archive film remains very uncomfortable viewing. Interestingly, Vanessa now works in radio covering Radio/SarahKennedy's old slot. Which some commentators consider potentially interesting.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaughn_Meader Vaughn Meader]] suffered a similar fate after November 22, 1963; even though he was a multi-talented comedian and entertainer, no one wanted to hear jokes of any kind from someone whose main claim to fame was a dead-on impersonation of JohnFKennedy. Fortunately, he was able to pull himself together and settle into a second career as a bluegrass musician in his native Maine.

** To top this, Michelangelo portrayed the known writer Pietro Aretino as st. Peter. Aretino had been scoffing Michelangelo publicly for sometime, and Michelangelo portrayed ''himself'' as the flayed skin of st. Bartholomy, hanging in the hand of Peter (Aretino). The best way to tell the world, and posterity: "This is how I feel about this".
