* UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump is a [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment particularly divisive example]]. Numerous scandals have been levied against him, some of them sex-related, but he's gained a reputation for being near-impossible to discredit with his core base of supporters, gaining him the nickname "Teflon Don" (in reference to a member of the Gambino Crime family who became a KarmaHoudini). It's not helped by the fact that before he ever became a politician, he was already widely known as a billionaire playboy, so he never really had a morally pure public image to protect in the first place.

* Creator/KirstenDunst is another notable aversion who made her breakout role as a child vampire in the ''distinctly'' family-unfriendly ''Film/InterviewWithTheVampire'' at the age of 12. She broke out of the "cute fluffy blonde" image as Lux in ''Film/TheVirginSuicides'' (she was 16 during filming) after doing some [[LittleWomen children's movies]] and the odd [[BringItOn teen flick]]. In her twenties, she admitted to occasionally smoking weed and drinking too much. This doesn't seem to have caused much outrage except among a few fringe loonies who can't distinguish Dunst from [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy Mary Jane]].

* Likewise, Creator/LindsayLohan, who owes her career to her early Disney films even more than Hathaway does. Before Lindsay was cast in ''Film/MeanGirls'', it was written to be a racy R-rated affair with (to quote Tina Fey "wall to wall titties"). As she was considered a family-friendly actress, it was changed to PG-13 and much of the racier content was cut. Lindsay also turned down an offer to pose for ''Playboy'' as she had a Disney film coming out, and tried not to dress too skimpily in public out of fear of upsetting her younger fans. And it's precisely for this reason that her party girl antics and drug abuse was such big news.

* US Congressman Anthony [[PunnyName Weiner]], Democrat for New York, from 1999 to 2011, had his political career shot down after he posted a link to a sexually suggestive photo of himself on his Website/{{Twitter}} account. He first denied that he had posted it but later admitted that he had and that he had exchanged sexual pics and messages with at least six other women. Weiner initially [[TheDeterminator refused to resign despite enormous pressure]] from his fellow Democrats and President UsefulNotes/BarackObama, only relenting after a sexually explicit photo was leaked. And then, a similar but different scenario (sexting women other than his wife) shot down his bid for New York City mayor, and his own attitude towards it has pretty much put an end to his political career (and, perhaps, his marriage).

** Creator/EmmaWatson has let it be known that she's willing to do nudity in other films, which means it's just a matter of time before the Moral Guardians scream about Hermione Granger showing her breasts in some movie or another. Watson has also been berated by MoralGuardians for the shocking crimes of... [[FelonyMIsdemeanor going to a nightclub and drinking]]. There's also a ParisHilton-esque crotch shot, which those guardians must have been specifically looking for in order to find it.

** The same holds true for JapanesePopMusic idols, even with its own infamous example! In 2013, Music/{{AKB48}} member Minani Minegishi was caught leaving the house of a member of Japanese Boy Band Music/{{EXILE}}. AKB fans[[note]]in Japan; western fans were either much more sympathetic towards her or didn't really care beyond "it's her fault for breaking the rules of the group"[[/note]] were ''pissed'', so much so that she shaved her head (a symbol of remorse in Japan) made a tearful apology video begging not to be kicked out of the group. She was instead demoted to the Kenkyussei unit. The whole thing was fairly controversial, sparking some moral debates that [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement we won't get into]]. These days, she's pretty much back to star status.

** Of course, this only applies to more "traditional" idols like Kashiwagi Yuki and Mayuyu Watanabe. Sashihari Rino was also caught in a similar incident as Minami but despite suffering from a demotion by being put into the smaller NMB48 and later to HKT48, she managed to spin it to her favor and proceeded to become the most popular of the NMB48 elections after the scandal and secure second place in the 6th Senbatsu General elections.

* This happened to MCHammer when he tried to get a tougher image. The {{irony}}: earlier in Hammer's career (before the mainstream success), he ''was'' a hardcore rapper. He later crossed over with a more dance-oriented sound, which was given note in the Music/IceCube diss track "True To The Game".

* In 1988, sixteen-year-old Creator/WinonaRyder, known at the time for family-friendly roles in films like ''Film/{{Lucas}}'' and ''Film/{{Beetlejuice}}'', was begged by her agent not to star in the R-rated BlackComedy ''Film/{{Heathers}}'', fearing that her career would be over. The same week Winona received the script, a schoolmate of hers committed suicide, which inspired her to do the film (whose plot revolves heavily around teen suicide) in spite of potential career damage.

* In a second season episode of ''Series/{{Elementary}}'', a man's latex-clad body is found by a dominatrix. As it turns out [[spoiler:the man is not at all into S&M - he was an important executive and upon retirement or death, his company owed him over 100 million dollar. The man who first found him was one of his coworkers. He dressed the body in the latex costume and called the dominatrix in order to later invoke the morals clause of his contract and void the payout. Ironically, the victim absolutely was violating the clause, just not because of any taste in S&M - [[AssholeVictim he was sexually abusing his own son.]]]]
