* The ''[[Franchise/TalesSeries Tales]]'' series loves this. Especially ''Abyss''. And ''Symphonia''. You'd think racism and genocide aren't apparently such a big deal in the worlds of the Tales universe, the way the main characters constantly have to denounce it.

* Happens all the time in the Internet comments threads for news stories describing any sort of scandal or real-life villain, as the ''{{Cracked}}'' website once pointed out. Every single poster will feel compelled to condemn the immoral action for fear of seeming insensitive to whomever suffered as a result of it, but it won't be long before the condemnations start to become redundant. When that happens, posters will just ramp up the vitriol, pumping the immorality up to [[UpToEleven absolutely insane levels]] and clamoring for [[DisproportionateRetribution ever-more draconian punishments]]. (Think of it as the cyber-era equivalent of "You ought to be horsewhipped!" or "Kill the umpire!")



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHZnzFVZ3_o Charles Barkley.]] And that's turrible.



* In Wiki/TVTropes, Tropers will say this as a reaction to things they disapprove of and {{Pothole}} it to this page. [[OverusedRunningGag And That's Terrible]].



* Arguably invoked in American politics whenever liberals advocate for the human rights of terrorists, criminals and various other ne'er-do-wells. Conservatives will [[SarcasmMode "ask"]] why villains are being defended when there are plenty of innocent people out there having their rights violated. But then, of course, innocent people will always be defended by default, because wronging innocent people is, well, terrible. [[note]] Ironically, conservatives themselves sometimes contribute to the problem by characterizing innocent people as StupidGood (pacifists, appeasers, etc.) and suggesting that being ''too'' innocent is not only a character flaw, but [[ARealManIsAKiller a moral failing]]. Apparently, to be a good guy, [[GoldenMeanFallacy you have to beat up or even kill bad guys, but never do that to anyone who is the slightest bit innocent, no matter how much of a jerk they might be]].

* The clickbait practice of appending a headline with a statement telling you how you're supposed to feel about the story in advance ("<story> And It Was Awesome!"; "<story> Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day!"; "<story about someone doing or saying something objectionable>, And It's A Problem.")

* In issue #709 of Franchise/{{Superman}} [[http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/124/317/cakes.png a flashback]] reveals the young Comicbook/LexLuthor was placed in detention for, you guessed it, ''[[Comicbook/TheSuperdictionary stealing cakes]]''. Forty of them from his school's bake sale, in fact. And that's terrible. ''[[AscendedMeme Terribly awesome]]''.

** From Chapter 19:
%%--> Professor Quirrell's lips were set in a thin line. "I will reluctantly teach you enough trivia for a passing mark on the Ministry-mandated portions of your first-year finals. Since your exact mark on these sections will make no difference to your future life, anyone who wants more than a passing mark is welcome to waste their own time studying our pathetic excuse for a textbook. The title of this subject is not Defence Against Minor Pests. You are here to learn how to defend yourselves against the Dark Arts. Which means, let us be very clear on this, defending yourselves against Dark Wizards. People with wands who want to hurt you and who will likely succeed in doing so unless you hurt them first! There is no defence without offence! There is no defence without fighting! This reality is deemed too harsh for eleven-year-olds by the fat, overpaid, Auror-guarded politicians who mandated your curriculum. To the abyss with those fools! You are here for the subject that has been taught at Hogwarts for eight hundred years! Welcome to your first year of Battle Magic!"
%%--> Harry started applauding. He couldn't help himself, it was too inspiring.
%%** And from the same chapter:
--> Professor Quirrell's voice was sympathetic and seemed to fill the whole room. "Knowing things isn't always enough, Miss Granger. If you cannot give and receive violence on the order of stubbing your toe, then you cannot defend yourself and you will not pass Defence. Please rejoin your classmates."
--> Hermione walked back towards the Ravenclaw cluster. Her face looked peaceful and Harry, for some odd reason, wanted to start clapping. Even though Professor Quirrell had been ''right''.

When the bad guy's acts are unquestionably evil, but the show's writers feel the need to have characters or the narrator say this out loud. Frequently a sign of a DesignatedVillain; like for the DesignatedVillain trope, more often than not the sentence is used to make sure that the reader knows that what the villain does is wrong, when out of context it wouldn't seem that evil.[[note]] See the picture on the right for a good example.

* In ''VideoGame/TheWitcher'', Salamandra attempts to [[DrugsAreBad gain control the drug trade]] at one point. Every non-addict (and even some of them as they are concerned about their supply) in game seems to think it is bad. This is silly because they already include murderers and rapists, both of whom net nowhere near the response by the game or {{NPC}}s. It is also unfitting for the entity of a [[GrayAndGreyMorality morally ambiguous]] WorldHalfEmpty to show universal contempt for anything. Not helped in the least by the [[{{Narm}} "dealing in death"]] line red shirt guards use during the quest.
