* The city of Liverpool went into a collective HeroicBSOD when the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillsborough_disaster 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.

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. Documentaries have demonstrated that you can't even give it away. In fact, it is not only not bought, but actively campaigned against, and almost no newsagent carries it. Furthermore, in 2016, Liverpool FC went as far as banning the ''the Sun'' from all press conferences, whether at their home stadium, Anfield, their training ground, or their academy, Melwood and Kirkby.

** Another one occurred on Columbia's last flight. Like with Challenger, mission control did not have any indication that something had gone horribly wrong until all contact was lost. On one of the videos taken inside the control room, you can see flight director Leroy Cain and other controllers break down completely when they learn the shuttle had disintegrated.

* 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 pretty much 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. [[IronWoobie Poor guy.]]

* Captain Edward J. Smith, commander of the ill-fated UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic, supposedly fell into a near catatonic stupor when he realized that his ship was going down in the middle of the Atlantic. He was only briefly brought out of it by his second officer shouting at him and asking if they should order the women and children into the lifeboats.

* ''Mary Todd Lincoln'' had one after the death of AbrahamLincoln. For practical reasons, she just ceased to function socially, and one of Lincoln´s sons had her eventually interred, because she ended up staring blankly at a wall for the rest of her life.

* Similarly, this was one of the reactions expressed by the Democratic Party, both on social media and publicly, after Donald Trump won the 2016 American presidential election. This reaction was most notable among those who had unwaveringly believed that Hillary Clinton would have won in a landslide, and even more so for those who believed that thier rights could be taken away under the presidency of Donald Trump. However, for those who supported Donald Trump, this reaction could also be considered [[VillainousBreakdown another trope]]. It became even worse once it became clear just ''how much'' the disconnect between "popular vote" (which in the US doesn't count) and "electoral vote" (which in the US is the only thing that matters) was. Under virtually any electoral system but the American one, Hillary Clinton would've been sworn in as President or she would have advanced to the runoff.
