* Utawarerumono has Eruruw committing a whole SERIES of these with...pretty much every word she says, to the Imperial Princess. In a subversion, the princess brushes it off, while the assistant takes it the worst way possible. It's pretty much an EstablishingCharacterMoment for the two.

* Like Daredevil above, Toph is prone to being on the receiving end of blind-insensitve comments. Of course, she also setting people up(Sokka mostly)into walking into this situation. She even pulls this on her self where she makes the assumption that Katara's suggestion is that she teams up Sokka to hang posters through out the city was because Katara thought she was too weak to be left alone in the city and not that the fact that correctly hanging posters involves sight, as she unintentionally demonstrates.

Eventually he manages to accuse her of being an "Indian giver" without actually using the word, and their relationship dissolves.



* In ''Series/TheWestWing'' episode "The Midterms", Doctor Jenna Jacobs, a conservative radio talkshow host, is publicly humiliated by the President of the United States (he draws her into clarifying that she [[MDEnvy is not an MD]], but rather has a [[NotThatKindOfDoctor PhD in English]], and then after she defends her stance that Homosexuality is a sin by quoting the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Leviticus]], asks her a serious of rapid-fire questions about whether he could sell his daughter into slavery, have his chief of staff executed for working on the Sabbath Day, etc. [[AsTheGoodBookSays all while citing different verses of Leviticus]] (President Bartlett being [[BadassBookworm a very well-studied Catholic]]), before finally pointing out what drew his wrath upon her.

* It doesn't stop with individual politicians or countries, the frikkin' ''[[UsefulNotes/UnitedNations U.N.]]'' accidentally [[http://stream.aljazeera.com/story/un-misfires-tweet-one-state-solution-0022421 tweeted a support for 1-state solution]] ahead of the General Assembly's vote on [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict Palestine]]. (For the record, the vote turned out to be 138 countries in favor of implicit recognition of Palestine, and the "1-state" thing was a typo.)
* When Australian stand up comedian Fiona O'Loughlin met the queen with a few other residents of Alice Springs, she noticed that her husband went to shake Her Majesty's hand. Without looking to whom she was talking to, asked the person standing next to her "Did he just fuck up?" A voice replied "Not as much as you just did dear". She turned around to find that she just addressed the Duke of Edinburgh (although, given his track record of this sort of thing, this may count as praise from Caesar).

* Pretty much every character in ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' has said or done something after forgetting that Matt is blind. The real estate agent tells him that he and Foggy can fight over the office with the better view. Karen holds a newspaper up to him to show an article about how terrible Wilson Fisk is. Ben Urich shrugs instead of verbally answering. Matt isn't too bothered by it and seems to prefer the odd faux pas to people treating him like he's made of glass.

* U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on a campaign rally to Missouri politician Chuck Graham: "Chuck, stand up, let the people see you!" Then he realized that Graham is in a wheelchair.
** Then he changed it to "God love ya. You've got them standing up for you now, pal."
** Biden's good at these. Such as calling the healthcare reform bill [[PrecisionFStrike "a big fucking deal"]] right next to a live microphone.
** [[YouAreACreditToYourRace "Clean and articulate."]]
** His comments about being "unable to go to a 7-Eleven or Dunkin' Donuts without a slight Indian accent".

-->'''Latvia''': Ah...Mr. Russia, those traditional clothes suit you well. You're rediscovering styles from the past, right?
-->'''Russia''': Latvia, these clothes are popular at my house right now.
-->'''Latvia''': Those fossils are popular?
