The IdiotHero is prone to this. They tend to receive replies like YouKnowImBlackRight and ImStandingRightHere. InnocentBigot is a subtrope. When this is done intentionally, they're a DeadpanSnarker. Obviously guilty of frequently committing a FeeFiFauxPas. It may also be the result of a CrazyCulturalComparison or a CrossCulturalKerfuffle. Compare HorribleJudgeOfCharacter and ObliviousMockery.

* ''WebAnimation/DCSuperHeroGirls:'' Harley Quinn's love of pranks puts her firmly into this territory. Glitterbomb in Wonder Woman's digs? Check. Kaboom candy? Check. Taking a mallet to Poison Ivy's plants? Well, ''it'' wasn't a prank, but still a check.

* ''Fanfic/ErasedPotential'': [[Manga/MyHeroAcademia Toshinori]] bumbles headlong into this when he takes an interest in Izuku... after Izuku has already spent the better part of two years training under Aizawa to become a [[BadassNormal Quirkless hero]]. When they learn about his intentions, Aizawa is coldly ''furious'', while Izuku struggles with being unintentionally insulted by somebody he's long idolized.

What separates them from the {{Jerkass}} is that this person is actually a good person - they're just clueless to things that people might generally be sensitive to. To them, it was just a [[JustJokingJustification fun joke]] or an [[BrutalHonesty honest assessment]] - no offense intended. When others bring up the fact that what they're saying is hurting other people's feelings, they try to change.

** Of course, that wasn't the first time Rean got in a tight spot due to him opening his mouth without consideration towards his audience or their reaction to what he says. Earlier in the game, during the field study in Celdic, Laura recognizes Rean's sword style and is impressed by it. Rean, on the other hand doesn't think the same way, believing himself to be "[[SelfDeprecation a dropout who's never even been able to progress past beginner level]]," feeling that he couldn't go farther in his abilities, which prompted his master to cut his training short. He apologizes to Laura for not meeting his expectations, but she plainly states that he has no reason to apologize to him, adding that it's a matter he needs to come terms with by himself. The morning after, when the group is gathered for the next set of tasks, Rean apologizes to Laura once more, only to be fed the same line from last night. This prompts Rean to expand on his apology, saying that what he said was disrespectful to his master, the school he follows and the way of the sword, which he apologizes (again) for making light of. Hearing this, Laura delivers her response.
-->'''Laura:''' If that's the case, then there is one other person you should be apologizing to as well.\\
'''Rean:''' ...?\\
'''Laura:''' I can't pretend to know much about your personal circumstances. But regardless of one's background or social standing, one should always be able to live with pride in him or herself. Thus, if you truly did make light of yourself and your own abilities, it is an act of shame for which you owe yourself recompense.

* A really twisted example happens in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders''. The team checks into a hotel run by Enya Geil, master of the Justice Stand and actually an assassin planning to kill them all one by one. Polnareff walks in on her while she's trying to dispose of a body, and starts talking about how she seems very lonely running the place on her own, and doesn't she have a son or a family, and wouldn't it be nice to have grandkids running around, and even offers to fill the void for tonight by pretending to be her son. Thing is, Enya ''had'' a son - J. 'Centerfold' Geil - whom Polnareff ''killed''.[[note]] Of course, he was also an assassin, as well as a serial killer who had once killed Polnareff's sister, so he was definitely not an angel in anyone's eyes but his mother's. [[/note]]Enya is ''seething'' and fighting hard to keep from dropping the charade and just stab him there and then. And Polnareff just keeps ''smiling''.

* When Undine meets Heartful Punch in ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain'', [[InSeriesNickname HP]] recognizes her as a member of the MagicalGirl group "Team Alchemical". She wonders why Undine is out alone and comes to the conclusion that the team broke up. Because she skips school assemblies and doesn't watch the news, Heartful Punch legitimately has no idea that [[spoiler: the other members of Team Alchemical were killed or de-powered, leaving Undine the sole survivor with her powers intact]]. When she learns the full story the next day, HP is horrified with herself and fears Undine must think she's the world's biggest asshole. Fortunately, Undine quickly realized Heartful Punch was honestly ignorant at the time and was actually ''grateful'' to HP since she wasn't pussyfooting around her and let her feel like things were normal again for a little while. In fact, while HP is freaking out about how much Undine must hate her, Undine's biggest concern is whether the cafeteria is serving turkey. The whole incident sparks a friendship and between the two that gradually turns into being BashBrothers.

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony'': Yusuf Amir loves to say the n-word, specially towards the main protagonist Luis, who is Dominican and gets offended every time he does it. With that said, due to his exposure to hip-hop culture, Yusuf thinks the n-word is something cool that people in the West call each other and is unaware of the word's historical context.
