* Music/OzzyOsbourne has suffered at least four or five: One when he was fired from Music/BlackSabbath, another when his HeterosexualLifePartner Randy Rhoads died, another when he was mistakenly labeled as HIV positive (in the 80s this was a death sentence, and it turned out all the drugs and booze he was consuming made his immune system just stop working), yet another when his wife Sharon was ''correctly'' diagnosed with colon cancer (again, he assumed it to be a death sentence), and an arguable one when his mother passed away.

** The Admiral in command of the HMS Hood, Vice Admiral Lancelot Holland, appears to have entered this state after his ship suffered it's fatal explosion. One of the three survivors of the Hood, Signaler Ted Briggs, was on the bridge with the Admiral when the ship sank. The last time Ted saw Holland, the Admiral was sat in his chair, making no attempt to save himself. Moments later, the bridge was underwater.

* Rather infamously in the case of Herbert Morrison, trope namer for OhTheHumanity. He became so horrified [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUVDmXvXcbk during the report]] of the [[Main/{{Hindenburg}} disaster that made him famous]] that he became a sobbing, incoherent mess for a few seconds, before he finally had to walk away from what he was seeing. He recovered within minutes and continued to report on the firefighting and rescue attempts afterwards.

* General UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur is said to have suffered a similar one shortly after the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Japanese launched their attacks on Hawaii and the Philippines]]. The 7th and 8th of December saw a series of CurbStompBattles in Japan's favor ([=MacArthur=] lost most of his airpower in the Philippines in the first day) and it seems he simply became overwhelmed.

* The entire FormulaOne community had one after the events of the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. [[XDaysSince There hadn't been a driver death since 1982.]] Rubens Barrichello's near miss on Friday practice seemed to reassure everyone the sport was safe. Then Roland Ratzenberger, in only his third race, gets killed instantly on Saturday qualifying. The following day, Ayrton Senna, widely considered as one of the greatest drivers of all time, is killed during the race itself. One look at any of the footage post-crash just shows drivers and staff in a state of utter shock, barely able to comphrend what happened.

* The city of Liverpool went into a collective HeroicBSOD when the Hillsborough Disaster happened. Everton and Liverpool fans alike went into mourning; many had friends or family who died. The anger and grief felt throughout the city because of Hillsborough was so great that when the ''Sun'' printed lies about Liverpool fans robbing and urinating on corpses, sales of the paper dropped on Merseyside due to boycotts, and have never recovered since. In fact, it is not only not bought, but actively campaigned against, and almost no newsagent carries it.
