* Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway's Ryan Stiles is often mentioned to be 6' 5'' tall, with jokes about his height being fairly common, but overshadowed by the bald jokes aimed at his nearly-as-tall partner in most scenes, Colin Mochrie. Ryan's height actually makes you forget that several others, including Colin and frequent guest Brad Sherwood are well over 6' themselves.

* In the documentary ''Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World'', Muslim comedian Ahmed Ahmed recounted how he once went in to read for a stereotypical Arab terrorist role. Since his stand-up comedy career was starting to flourish, and because he considered the role an offensive stereotype, he decided he'd go in and treat the audition as a complete joke, completely mocking the role and the producers. Ahmed proceeded to read the part as the most crazed, screaming ethnically offensive Large Ham stereotype he could manage. [[SpringtimeForHitler The casting director loved it and promptly offered him the part.]]

Because of the Soviet Union, a little thing called the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, and a good deal of old Czarist Russia, the peoples of Eastern Europe are widely mocked or cast as villains in action films because of the Cold War. Often portrayed as outwardly cold or immoral for their part in the former Soviet Union. Icy relations with the West are slowly seeing the resurgence of old stereotypes.

* ‘’Literature/{{Disclosure}}’’ is about an evil woman in an executive position who [[SleepingTheirWayToTheTop gained her position by having sex with powerful men]] and then uses a FalseRapeAccusation against the protagonist. It’s noted that the villain was also assigned her position over a much more qualified (but less sexually-attractive) woman.

[[folder:Live-Action Film]]
* Remember that hilarious scene in ‘’Film/{{Airplane}}’’? The one where the woman loses control and there’s a long line waiting to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slap her]]? While slapping is a bit taboo these days, ridiculing these sorts of women or mocking them is still frequent.
* ‘’Film/JurassicWorld’’ has an entire segment about its main heroine having no desire for children, and being forced to take care of her nephews because of her lack of motherly instincts.
* ‘’Film/TheCabinInTheWoods’’, which is built around various horror tropes, specifically points out how prevalent [[DeathBySex “the Slut” character being killed]] is.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Videogames]]
* There’s an entire quest line in ‘’Videogame/{{Skyrim}}’’ which is about shaming a woman named Haelga for having a lot of sexual partners. While there are other ways to complete the quest, there is no way to tell off the woman who is SlutShaming her, and Haelga states that she has to do it in secret, because sex is the primary way of worshipping [[LoveGoddess her goddess]].

Added DiffLines:

'''"Bad" Women'''

Yes, women can still get this treatment -- but more specifically, the [[MadonnaWhoreComplex “wrong kind”]] of women are the ones that get it. Women who [[SlutShaming have too much sex]] (or even ‘’accused’’ of doing so), who [[HystericalWoman can’t control their emotions]], or don’t care for womanly things like [[IceQueen wanting a man]], [[NotWantingKidsIsWeird having babies]] or [[MaternallyChallenged not knowing how to raise kids]] are portrayed as misguided at best.

If a work runs on GirlsNeedRoleModels, male characters are typically portrayed as [[UselessBoyfriend useless]], [[WomenAreWiser incompetent]], [[MenAreTheExpendableGender expendable]], [[HighHeelFaceTurn evil]], or [[ButtMonkey made to suffer]]. But even if it doesn't, male characters that are mocked, victimized or seriously flawed are often more readily accepted than female ones, and are more likely to be PlayedForLaughs.

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' takes this to the extreme with the two leads: a girl who "[[GirlsNeedRoleModels can do anything]]" and a boy who [[ButtMonkey is treated as an all-around loser for whom things never go right]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', with its mostly female main cast, intentionally shows that there are [[GirlsNeedRoleModels so many different ways to be a girl]], while TheOneGuy serves as the series' ButtMonkey and is often not even treated like a proper member of the group.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' had ''Carbombya'', an obvious jab at Libya. Lebanese voice actor Casey Kasem left the show at that point, finding it in unimaginably poor taste. That's why Cliffjumper has no lines afterward.
