* Series/TheGoodies''. In an episode spoofing [[MoralGuardians Mary Whitehouse]], the Goodies are hired to do a sex education video by 'Mrs Carthorse'. Even though the subject is ludicrously {{Bowdlerise}}d ("This is a man...and this isn't"), Carthorse calls for its banning the moment the title appears, because it has a dirty word ("gender") in it.

** In his (alternate) Worst Films of 2010 list, he included ''LittleFockers'' just because he hated the jokes in previous movies involving Ben Stiller's character's name. He admitted to never even watching it. By alternate, we mean Spoony compiled a second list of movies that would be horrible and would probably be on his main list if he managed to watch them. Included were ''Film/BloodRayne 3'' and ''The Nutcracker'' in 3-D.

** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] with her ''{{Jem}}'' review, which she has admitted was done only because she felt pressured by its 'girly nostalgia', despite the fact she was not a fan nor ever watched the show as a kid.

* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'': One comic titled "Hell's Video Store" featured a store run by devils with nothing but the movie ''{{Film/Ishtar}}''. Larson later apologized for drawing that strip after actually watching the movie ''Ishtar'', which he had not seen it at the time he did the comic and had only used it because of its reputation. After seeing Larson admitted he found it funny.

Also, sometimes this can be {{invoked|Trope}} if some leave out the full context of complaints [[{{Demonization}} to make a show they don't like look bad]]. Sometimes character could complain about a part of a show, and it may actually be worse than the person thinks. Or they might end up disliking a show for a different reason.

* ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'': They criticised ''VideoGame/{{Hatred}}'' as having no value - which is actually rather impressive, seeing as the game wasn't even out yet and there was probably no way for them to have actually played it.
