* [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Karen Traviss]] is a little bit infamous for this in the ''StarWars'' fandom, going so far as to call her critics Talifans, sexist losers, and having no life. Her critics claim it was because they called her out on the [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale ridiculously low clone troop numbers, 3 million for a million star system Republic]] and she going so far as to make those numbers a bigger part of her stories when they were originally just trivia. Traviss and her supporters claim she only used such vitriolic terminology for a [[HateDumb belligerent subgroup of such critics whom she says harassed and threatened her]], and [[ScapegoatCreator that she didn't even come up with the numbers in the first place.]] Although the clone troop numbers found in the ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' [[AllThereInTheManual movie novelization]] would support the numbers she's been attributed to, the fact that neither side was aware of it during the apparently months-long arguments reflects poorly on both sides. One of the mods on the old Star Wars.com forums gave his account of the events [[https://web.archive.org/web/20120411215622/http://blogs.starwars.com/bluemodgroup/42 here.]]

* Danwarp, aka DanSchneider, the creator of ''Series/ICarly'' did the same thing around the same time. He planned with Nick to air an extended version of the heavily Carly/Freddie [[{{Shipping}} ship]]-centric episode "[=iSaved=] Your Life", and made some excited blog posts in the week leading up to it being confirmed. Once he announced it, a few BigNameFan supporters of the Sam/Freddie ship made a variety of rude posts about how the news wasn't exciting at all, and they thought it'd be something bigger. This pissed Dan off, who responded with point by point rebuttals of the two harshest posters, and told people who weren't excited to watch the new episode of ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' instead.

* After the first trailer received [[TaintedByThePreview massive negative reception]], director Paul Feig and other staff of ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' accused critics of the film of simply being misogynists, due to the film being an all-female ContinuityReboot. [[FromBadToWorse Many people were not impressed by this]], and [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment perhaps no further elaboration is necessary]].

* Stephan J Harper responded to a gently critical review of his book ''Venice Under Glass'' (a mystery about animate teddy bears in Venice) by [[http://tidbits.com/article/14696 replying to the review over 180 times]] (often to himself as he thought of a new thing to rant about), calling the reviewer an idiot, describing his book as a "lyrical prose poem", and sharing lines that really [[NotHelpingYourCase don't help his case]], such as "Roses grew from metal floor stands and stood in cut-crystal on side-tables and window-ledges and overflowed into the dining room, stopping only when the bouquets had covered her kitchen counters, scenting the air throughout like crazy. Some bear had sent her bright yellow and orange dozens, poised next to red, white and pink dozens."

Added DiffLines:

** He pulled a similar stunt after Film/CopOut garnered poor reviews. He lashed at critics for daring giving the film bad reviews after he had allowed them to see it for free, as if he expected them to give the movie a review based on how much it cost them rather than the film's actual quality.

* Aaron Neathery, creator of ''[[Webcomic/{{Endtown}} Endtown]]'', releases monthly messages to those of his fans who support him on Patreon. His December 2016 Patreon letter reeks of this trope, being largely a loud and strenuous defence of his recent storytelling decisions after apparently getting some amount of negative feedback.

* EA was voted worst company in America of the year twice in a row by the website Consumerist. The CEO replied with a letter expressing his contempt to the voters' SkeweredPriorities. Various U.S. companies caused oil spills and took houses of former U.S. soldiers, but according to Consumerist voters, rushing games out the door is the worst possible crime.
