* [[Music/{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]] kept his HIV/AIDS diagnosis secret throughout the late 80s until shortly before he passed away in 1991 because he was afraid people would buy Queen albums only out of sympathy. Though it still hasn't stopped people from criticizing him for hiding it until the end.
* For blind Puerto-Rican singer and guitar player [[HandicappedBadass Jose Feliciano]], having someone try to help him walk around seems to be quite the BerserkButton due to this trope.
* [[WordOfGod According to daughters]] Creator/LizaMinnelli and Lorna Luft, their mother Creator/JudyGarland was often irritated at the idea that she was a sad, tragic, melancholic figure with no happiness in her life. Despite the [[IronWoobie hardships]] she went through, she tried to keep a sunny disposition and always tried her best to rise up from them. Reputedly once when she was about to be interviewed, she littered her hotel room with pills and alcohol all over the floor and tables. When Liza asked why, she replied, "I'm just giving the reporters what they want to see."

* In ''Literature/SorceryAndCecelia'', at the beginning of her Season, Kate has no partners at her first dance except for one who seemed rather distracted during the dance and immediately afterward claimed his dance with her sister, making the sister's magniminity a little too blatant for Kate.

* Scarlett O'Hara in ''Literature/GoneWithTheWind'' is an example. She cannot stand being pitied. At one point in the novel, Rhett claims that she cannot stand pity and sympathy because she sees them as a sign of weakness. At the end of the book, when Rhett tells her that this is the only feeling he has left for her, ''that'' is the moment that she knows for certain that their marriage is over.

* ''Literature/ToKillAMockingbird'' has a variation. The black Tom Robinson was almost certain to be convicted of the white Mayella Ewell's rape regardless of what he said, but he makes one serious mistake at his trial; the prosecutor asks him why he was constantly helping her around her house while turning down money (presumably trying to get Tom to say that he was attracted to her,) but Tom does something even worse by saying that he helped because he "felt right sorry for her". "''You'' felt sorry for ''her''? You felt ''sorry'' for her?" replies the prosecutor, causing both Tom and Atticus to immediately realise that the concept of a black man pitying a white woman will offend the jury so much that whatever extremely slim chance they might have had of acquittal has been lost, and Atticus' closing statement specifically draws attention to how having the "temerity" to pity a white woman is ''not'' reason enough to convict him.
