* "Outside of a Small Circle of Friends" by Music/PhilOchs.
-->Oh, look outside the window, there's a woman being grabbed\\
They've dragged her to the bushes and now she's being stabbed\\
Maybe we should call the cops and try to stop the pain\\
But Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the game\\
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody\\

* The case of [[https//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Kitty_Genovese Kitty Genovese]], who was raped and stabbed to death near her home in Queens, New York in 1964, is usually cited as an example of this. The media reported that thirty-eight witnesses saw the crime, but nobody called the police. As is often the case, the truth is much more complicated (the event is discussed in detail [[http://www.wnyc.org/story/131359-the-witnesses-that-didnt/ here]]). Nevertheless, it inspired the investigation of the phenomenon, called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bystander_effect bystander effect]].

* On many art sites many artists, most often those who constantly get bashed for producing low quality artwork or FetishFuel, will often use DontLikeDontRead or some variation thereof in order to try and invoke this. The main reason being these individuals either CantTakeCriticism or hope that, by telling users DontLikeDontRead or making a DearNegativeReader, people will leave them alone so they can continue to create those works.

* Hatred at the population of the Glades turns out to motivate the plans of the BigBad of Series/{{Arrow}}'s first season to KillThePoor: when his wife was stabbed in a mugging gone wrong, despite being both out in the open and a wealthy philanthropist who worked in the area (in fact, [[DeathByIrony she was coming home from a free clinic she founded/ran when she was stabbed), nobody lifted a finger to help her. With the revelation she only died because nobody even called the police during the ''hours'' she spent bleeding out, with people walking past her indifferently all that time, one can almost [[VillainHasAPoint sympathize with the big bad's views about the need to destroy such a]] WretchedHive.

* {{Parodied|Trope}} in ''VideoGame/CrashTwinsanity'', where Crash Bandicoot and Dr. Neo Cortex end up in a Wumpa Fruit farm, and the farmer happens to have one of the crystals they need to travel to the Tenth Dimension. However, the farmer refuses to give it to them unless they exterminate the worms infesting his orchard before the farmer's market opens the next day. Cue Cortex blasting the farmer and saying something to the effect of "ThisIsReality".

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Jaime mentions this trope when describing the Mad King's execution of Ned's father and brother in "Lord Snow":
--> '''Jaime:''' Five hundred men just stood there and watched. All the great knights of the Seven Kingdoms, do you think anyone said a word, lifted a finger? No, Lord Stark. Five ''hundred'' men, and this room was silent as a crypt. Except for the screams, of course, and the Mad King laughing.
** In "Sons of the Harpy", Loras is seized by the Faith Militant just after a sparring match, but neither his squire, nor his sparring partner, nor any of the nearby nobles make any attempt to intervene as the Queen's brother is manhandled by commoners.
