* The famous "Trolololo" meme featuring Russian singer Eduard Khil (which was frequently associated with the {{Troll}} movement on the Internet) has become a lot less funny after the FBI confirmed in 2017 that the Russian government used entire ''armies'' of trolls to astroturf across the Internet and target undecided voters with propaganda, which in turn may have led to the 2016 Presidential Election's hugely contested and controversial outcome.

* During a late night chat on WebVideo/LordKat's livestream (circa September 2010), a conversation between [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], SeanFausz, and Skitch was interrupted by a sudden ''THUD'', after which Spoony's line went quiet.[[note]](He later explained that he dropped his laptop and ran out of the room because his dinner had caught fire on the stove.)[[/note]] After about five minutes of silence, Skitch jokingly speculated that Spoony had "dropped dead from a heart attack"; Sean replied, "Oh, well. [[SiblingTeam Miles]] will find him and give him a eulogy." A little over a month later, Spoony started having fainting spells and ended up making numerous trips to the hospital...because of a previously unknown heart condition. Ouch.

** This also taints a great deal of JonTron's episodes, most especially "Food Games," which outright depicts Jon owning a slave named Grimbo.

* Also, in December 2010, someone ([[NoNameGiven whose name was never revealed]]) wrote on {{Twitter}}: "predictions for 2011... Twitter will be super-regulated #ladygaga". This may have been considered funny/highly speculative at the time, but not now that the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2011_British_privacy_injunctions_controversy 2011 Twitter gagging order row]] has happened, and it's definitely uncomfortable to read, particularly as this got quoted around a few football forums too.

* During [[{{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} Chuggaaconroy's]] Let's Play of ''{{Super Mario Sunshine}}'', a fair amount of humour came from how the game screwed him over, whether it was the time he had a power outage whilst recording, or the difficulty with the watermelon stage, or how frustrating the game was in parts. It became a lot less funny however, when (during his LP of ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'') {{LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy}} revealed that during the LP of ''Sunshine'' he'd been suffering from a {{Creator Breakdown}}, and was [[StepfordSmiler trying to hide it]].

* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Film/TheMatrix'', there was a reigniting gag of a comically overbearing and controlling boss/producer. Funny, right? Well, right around the time this review was released several producers left Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, mainly because of Mike Michaud, a seriously overbearing and controlling boss/producer. Yeah...
** He also did a scathing review of ''Film/{{Moonwalker}}'' about two and a half months before Music/MichaelJackson died. While that in itself was just a coincidence, and the movie was bad, there are some moments that are awkward now:
** The villain in "Smooth Criminal" wants to get all of the kids of the world addicted to drugs. As it turned out, a small pharmacy worth of drugs was found at Neverland Ranch. And while Jackson was legally cleared of child molestation, he was ConvictedByPublicOpinion before DeadArtistsAreBetter took effect. Not to mention that drugs were what wound up killing Michael.
** "And I have to say this is easily the best part of the movie because it starts out with Michael Jackson's best scene. People trying to kill him." His death was reported as a homicide; his physician was eventually convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Later, in his commentary for this review, half of the jokes Doug cracks are about how awkward some of his jokes have become since Michael's death. But the joke about how the best scene has people trying to kill him is not mentioned.
** There was also the example in the ''WesternAnimation/{{TMNT}}'' review where NC made fun of Master Splinter's voice. NC was instantly showered with insulting messages from fans of his voice actor, {{Creator/Mako}}. NC addressed this later, acting surprised by the backlash [[OhWait since "it's not like the guy died or some- GOD DAMMIT!]]". It's even worse when he said that it was like [[Film/TheKarateKid Mr. Miyagi]] had smoked a million cigarettes. Mako's cause of death? Esophageal cancer. At least he was able to get an amusing segue out of it.
** And it happened again during the review of ''Film/{{Sidekicks}}'', where Jonathan Brandis's character has frequent daydreams about fighting alongside Creator/ChuckNorris. The Critic comments that the kid seems more mentally ill than daydreaming, and he was right. He found out later that Brandis committed suicide in 2003. The next time Brandis popped up in a review -- ''Film/TheNeverendingStory 2'', where his character also seems mentally unstable -- he was interrupted by an elephant in the room so he could comment upon this.
** His review of ''Film/TheRoom'' ends with [[spoiler:the seahorses chasing him down because all viewings of the movie have been outlawed.]] For a while, the review was inaccessible because the movie's creator filed a copyright claim and had it taken down.
** In his collab review of ''Film/AloneInTheDark2005'' with [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] and [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]], at one point, one of the heroes jumps into the scene and starts shooting some possessed people. The guys point out that he had no idea that they were possessed, so he might as well be shooting innocent bystanders. To illustrate, the next few clips of the hero shooting are interspersed with clips of 90s Kid, Dr. Insano, Chester A. Bum, and Ma-Ti walking in and getting shot. [[spoiler:In ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'', the last one gets KilledOffForReal.]]
** During Season 1 of [[WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow Angry Joe's]] ''Hotel Awesome'', Dan "Aussie" Rizzo gave Joe a letter to deliver to WebVideo/RolloT, telling Rollo T that he's been fired from Blistered Thumbs. Not too long after that, '''Dan Rizzo''' was the one who got fired, and Joe became the head of Blistered Thumbs (for a while).
** After his departure from TGWTG, nearly every video on the site that mentions/features [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] is now a FunnyAneurysmMoment, though unlike Rizzo he is not considered an UnPerson and is still on good terms with most of the site.
** At the end of his review of ''Film/{{Twister}}'', the Burger King is hiding under the bed, so the Critic tries to coax him out, telling him, "Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman isn't here anymore. No, he's gone."

* In 2007, the StarWars wiki declared that only the movies and the [[StarWarsTheCloneWars animated series]] were canon. Fans of the [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse EU]] rejoiced that this was an April Fool's Joke. 7 years later, Disney, now the owner of Star Wars, made the same announcement--but this time, they weren't joking.

* While the first PotterPuppetPals short, "Bothering Snape," came out a few months after ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' was released, "Bothering Snape" can seem disturbing if you watch it after having read the scene in the book where James (Harry's father) and his friends bully Snape just for kicks (basically, the exams are done and Sirius is looking for some fun, and they decide to go mess with Snape who is just reading over his test). It makes Harry's "Let's go bother Snape" seem disturbingly like his father's bad side (although Harry in those shorts IS generally more arrogant and more cruel than he usually is in the books).
