* Played more seriously in another ''Miraculous'' story, ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7088386 Red For Fortune]]'', when Marinette confronts Adrien about a fashion spread in Mᴏᴅᴇ, which despite being supposedly inspired by Chinese New Year, was put together by his father and only had white models in {{yellowface}}, including Adrien himself.
-->'''Marinette''': (''throwing the magazine down on his desk'') ''This'' is what’s going on in here, Adrien. This racist pile of crap that your father helped produce.\\
'''Adrien''': (''glances at the magazine and recognises the photos, before turning back to Marinette'') You’re upset over a fashion spread in Mᴏᴅᴇ? I don’t see what the big deal is; I mean, none of it is lewd or anything. I guess this collection isn’t my father’s best work…\\
'''Marinette''': Oh, it’s an awful collection; completely uninspired and cliché. But I wouldn’t be half so upset if an Asian designer had been behind a shoot supposedly inspired by an Asian holiday.\\
'''Adrien''': There probably weren’t any Chinese designers that were high profile enough.\\
'''Marinette''': Do you honestly believe the words coming out of your mouth? I can name three Chinese designers off the top of my head that have been members of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. There are tons of other Chinese designers that participate in Paris Fashion Week. One of them, Ms Min, even puts out a collection every year in honor of Lunar New Year. The Met Gala, you know, the premier fashion event in the world? It was teeming with work from Chinese designers last year - four of whom were featured in the exhibit! ''Your father'' has never caused such a sensation as Guo Pei’s fox fur gown, and he sure as ''hell'' has never been featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gabriel doesn’t make art; if this is anything to go by, all he makes is racist garbage.\\
'''Adrien''': (''stands up and glares at her'') It’s not like he could control who Mᴏᴅᴇ asked to do this spread. They chose the person they thought had the best collection for what they wanted to portray.\\
'''Marinette''': Gabriel Agreste could have easily turned them down if he had the decency to see that what Mᴏᴅᴇ was doing was wrong. Of course, that would require him to realize that his collection was racist trash, and that Mᴏᴅᴇ clearly wanted to portray racist trash. (''turning the pages over, with PunctuatedPounding'') How. Else. Can. You. Explain. This? (''finishes on a shot of Adrien'') It wasn’t enough that they whitewashed my culture, was it? They also had to deck their white models in yellow face. (''glaring into his eyes'') What made you think that this was in any way okay? How can you claim to be my friend and do something like this?\\
'''Adrien''': He’s my father; I couldn’t just say no.\\
'''Marinette''': Your relationship to him is precisely why you were the only one who ''could'' say ‘no’.\\
'''Adrien''': (''bitterly'') You really have no clue about how wrong you are there.\\
'''Marinette''': I know that any other model or member of the production crew would have committed career suicide if they confronted him. Just as your father was in a position to turn down Mᴏᴅᴇ without consequences, you were in a position to call him out without ruining your future career.\\
'''Adrien''': You’re crazy if you think I wouldn’t have faced consequences, Marinette.\\
'''Marinette''': What, you’d be grounded? Lose your video game privileges? No sweets for a month? Do you really care more about some petty personal comforts than doing the right thing?\\
'''Adrien''': ‘The right thing’? This isn’t some grand moral conflict. You’re overreacting.\\
'''Marinette''': Spoken like a truly privileged white man. Your father must be so proud.\\
'''Adrien''': Don’t act like such a martyr, Marinette. It's not like you're some oppressed minority - heck, your skin is even paler than mine.\\
'''Marinette''': (''lets out a harsh and bitter laugh before cutting it off and continuing to glare at him'') You were right, Alya; white faves will ''always'' disappoint you in the end.

* ''Webcomic/{{Xkcd}}'': [[https://www.xkcd.com/651/ Cueball has an argument at the airport]]:
--> ''Cueball:'' But if you're worried about bombs, why are you letting me keep my laptop batteries? If I overvolted them and breached the cells, it would make a sizeable explosion.
--> ''Megan:'' Oh god.
--> ''Cueball:'' It's okay, dear. In a moment he'll realize I have a good point and return my water.

-->'''Doctor''': Rory! What a relief! I'd thought I'd burst out of the wrong cake. Again. That reminds me, there's a girl sitting outside in a bikini, could someone let her inside and give her a jumper? Lucy? Lovely girl. Diabetic. Now then, Rory. We need to talk about your fiancé. She tried to kiss me. Tell you what though, you're a lucky man, she's a great kisser.

* Sometimes, a lack of action can cause the digging-deeper feelings, resulting in a MortonsFork – either speak up and actively dig yourself deeper, or stay silent and feel like you're digging yourself deeper by not even attempting to defuse the awkward situation. The saying is "It is better to stay silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."
