* Former mayor Rodrigo Duterte is notorious for practicing vigilantism (dubbed as “Davao Death Squad” or DDS) in Davao City, Philippines which got a lot of attention from human rights groups. However in 2015, many Filipinos want him to run for President because they are fed up with the unjust and corrupt bureaucracy that had been plaguing the country for years and believe that [[TheExtremistWasRight Duterte’s methods are right]]. During the campaign period, Duterte earned more controversies such as [[SirSwearsALot his potty mouth]], his jokes such as the infamous rape joke on the dead Australian missionary, his disparage on the MoralGuardians, Pope Francis, feminist groups and several foreign ambassadors, his close ties to communist groups in the country and his hidden bank accounts. In fact, these issues could probably make him as a socialist dictator which Creator/JohnOliver even called him the "[[Creator/DonaldTrump Trump]] of the East". But he’s still popular among voters and when the results of the elections are up, it’s fair to say that '''Duterte won'''.

** Likewise, Reagan's partner in crime-Lt Colonel Oliver North ended up walking away from the Iran-Contra scandal pretty much scot-free(with the exception of having to resign from the Marines) from severe charges of high treason due to the ACLU appealing on his behalf(ironic considering how much right-wing people tend to hate the ACLU) and getting all charges dropped. Since leaving the Marines, North has had a succesful career writing novels, getting his own FOX show which ran for 16 years-War Stories with Oliver North, and even getting involved with popular video game ''CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' of all things(he was a production assistant and voiced himself in one of the missions set in the 1980s)

* Zigzagged with Creator/LindsayLohan; while her career opportunities have been negatively affected by her run-ins with the law, she still gets more offers then you'd think and pretty much anything her name is attached to will get plenty of attention. For example, out of all the SNL episodes in 2012, the one Lindsay hosted got the highest ratings. In some ways her controversy makes her a selling point -- her latest film ''The Canyons'' (penned by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Creator/PaulSchrader) probably wouldn't have gotten nearly as much attention if she wasn't involved.

Then in 2014 she starred in DavidMamet's critically acclaimed London play "Speed the Plow" and her performance received positive reviews. Since then she's largely stayed under the radar due to living overseas(where paparazzi are much less of a problem) and her past run-ins with the law have been mostly forgotten.



* DonaldTrump, over the years, has cultivated a large, boisterous, attack-anything-that-moves, take-no-prisoners personality, such that when he entered the Republican race for President in 2015, he quickly shot to the top of the polls, and stayed there even after insulting Creator/FoxNewsChannel anchor Megyn Kelly, then expecting ''her'' to apologize to ''him''. Many note that he's even more Teflon than Ronald Reagan, getting away with stuff that even Reagan wouldn't walk away from.

Though in 2016 this is becoming less true with many Republicans outright refusing to vote for him(some even going so far as to de-register themselves), and with news that his campaign is broke and won't be able to afford to run ads through the summer(due to many prominent Republicans donors, including the Koch brothers, refusing to give him any money), his teflon status is slowly starting to decrease.

* Brett Favre and Peyton Manning are both NFL players who have been accused of sexual assault and still have a lot of public support. This might be because [[AllMenArePerverts people expect male athletes to be sexually aggressive]], but Manning has cultivated a GoodOldBoy image.

Of course, the fact that there have been several contradictory claims in the incident involving him probably helped.

* As with Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela became very much an [[UnacceptableTargets Unacceptable Target]] after his death, while before many right-wing politicians in the U.S. during Apartheid branded him a terrorist, even though he had long since disavowed the ANC's early use of violence. (He was only taken off the U.S. terrorist watch list in 1998).

* The famous "Homer's Enemy" episode from WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons revolves around how Homer's actions are controversy proof within Springfield and he never really suffers undue actual real world consequences (such as unemployment, abandonment or ''death''_ for his actions, whereas any attempts to imitate Homer, as in the tragic case of Frank Grimes, will lead to real-world consequences.
