This trope started to become in bad taste after the Charlie Hebdo shooting of January 2015, but firmly entered DiscreditedTrope territory after Paris's second terrorist attack on November 13, 2015.

* The Cyclone, Pierre Fresson, from ''{{Thunderbolts}}''. Vain, egotistical, self-serving, and lecherous to the last.

2) FrenchCuisineIsHaughty: Characters visit a French restaurant, where the cook and/or the waiter are all arrogant, badly tempered and dirty snobs who refuse to give their clients what they want or interpret everything they say as a complaint. If they deliver the meals the food will always be filthy, disgusting or cold.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Welp}}'': Two French go-karters are at the camping spot the Belgian Cub Scouts are supposed to be at, but they talk down to them and refuse to move from the spot. This forces the troop to camp even further in the woods, right where the evil WildChild lives. Since this [[ForWantOfANail inadvertantly leads to all the horrible things that occur in the film]], this makes the trope all the more apparent.

* In one episode of ''TheThinBlueLine'', everyone at the police station is forced to attend diversity training, but when they're instructed to arrest an illegal immigrant, they get the wrong guy - causing a major incident because he is actually the European Commissioner for Human Rights (and black.) The man turns out to be a French Jerk and instantly starts complaining about everything in Britain: "You British. No wonder we all hate you. Your chocolate isn't chocolatey enough. Your bananas are too long and bendy. And you insist on eating prawn cocktail crisps ''despite the fact that we have told you not to!''"

5) In the USA in particular the French jerk will be portrayed as an ungrateful coward, whom ''the brave Americans'' saved in World War One and Two, but who has no respect for Americans in modern times. This is a somewhat one-sided caricature, because the French have in the past battled German invaders more than once (Franco-Prussian War (1871), for instance) and during their so-called ''unheroic retreat'' in World War Two the French only surrendered because the Nazis had already surrounded Paris and threatened to blow the city up. The French resistance did a lot during both World Wars to sabotage German plans, when the USA was still remaining neutral during both conflicts. And some people ought to remember a [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution certain conflict that took place during the late 18th century]], in which [[NotSoDifferent a resistance movement only managed to overcome their military occupiers with the help of another foreign power, who not only supplied and financed their operations, but also became essential in securing a decisive, final outcome to the conflict]].

And some north. Even then, the population in occupied areas of the country kept on fighting.
