* In an interview for ''{{Series/Preacher}}'', Joseph Gilgun was asked to address the show's possibly offensive nature towards Christians. Gilgun's response was to say "fuck them" and to not watch the show if they think it won't be nice to their religion.

* There's a peculiar phenomenon amongst readers of comics, especially mainstream titles such as those published by {{Marvel}} or [[DCComics DC]], that if a title they enjoy takes a turn they disapprove of, perhaps a new writer with a new vision, or a particular bad plot twist, they will continue to purchase every new issue that comes out every month, but go on the Internet and gripe about how horrible it is. Often you'll hear the excuse that they're only buying it because, quote, "I don't want any holes in my collection," and then they'll also buy all the alt covers for the same. This was especially noticeable during the controversial ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay'' storyline for Marvel's {{Spider-Man}}; the internet ''lit up'' with readers blasting the direction the story was going, blasting Marvel for what they were doing to Spider-Man, blasting JoeQuesada personally for being the ringleader of it... but still buying all the books and wondering why Marvel doesn't realize how much they dislike a direction that "all the fans" hate, but are still financially supporting.

* Invoked by the developers of ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'', in regards to war crimes committed by the player character (and, by association, the player themselves). The game was deliberately written so that the player stopping the game due to moral objections or disgust at the game's violence was a valid (and the intended) choice, with deliberate hints to stop playing thrown here and there. Continuing on and blaming the developers or outside forces for the player character's actions when the player could have chosen not to participate and perpetrate the violence [[BatmanGambit makes the player exactly like the player character (who invented an imaginary villain and takes to blaming it for his actions)]], which [[YouBastard the game is all too happy to tell the player in the form of fourth-wall-breaking shaming and mockery.]] Of course, some would argue that's easy for the developers to say [[KarmaHoudini when they're not the ones who bought the game for the original $60 price and would like to get their money's worth out of it]] [[SchmuckBait only to be told the best way to play was to give up halfway through]].

** Similar complaints were given to ''Super Paper Mario'' (people expecting an RPG, and getting a platformer) and ''RabbidsGoHome'' (people expecting a mini-game fest and getting a...well...whatever Rabbids Go Home is). You'd think people would research the game a little before buying.
