* It's hard to find any carnivore who doesn't love chicken wings. It's very easy, on the other hand, to find people who hate the massive explosion in popularity for the things that began in the late 90's, because it took what used to be the absolute cheapest part of the bird and drove prices through the roof, where they've remained ever since.

* As soon as the trailer for ''Series/StarTrekDiscovery'' hit the web, Trekkers far and wide denounced it as utter crap. Not because of the casting, acting, story or characters, but because it bore such a strong resemblance to the [[BrokenBase base-breaking]] "Kelvin Timeline" ''Film/StarTrek'' films. Because the series is set a few years prior to ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', rabid fans of the franchise apparently expected a similar look and feel, with alabaster starships, blocky sets that look like the plywood and fiberglass they are, computers that make tape-spooling noises, data padds the size of three-ring binders that have fewer functions than your 21st-Century smartphone, bulky tricorders that look like transistor radios, communicators that have to be tuned with a knob, etc. Based on aesthetics alone, these Trekkers were certain that the series was a reboot that would ignore existing canon and remake the franchise in order to win a wider audience. Meanwhile, your average person responded with "Wow, this series doesn't look hopelessly geeky. I might actually watch."

** Then it became common knowledge that the Netherlands had legalized weed and suddenly, the tourists came in like a tidal wave seeking legal pot. This has caused considerable backlash among people who find the idea that the Netherlands' biggest draw may be for drug tourism a mite embarrassing, in addition to the problems (perceived and actual) that these foreigners cause. In 2012, a law was passed which forbade tourists from getting cannabis at [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffeeshop_(Netherlands) cannabis coffee shops]] nationwide, and restricted the purchase of cannabis among citizens to those carrying a "pot pass". However, actual enforcement of this law has proven to be a bit hit-or-miss. In Amsterdam, for instance, foreigners can come in and purchase pot from a coffeeshop without discrimination or legal repercussion.

* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', now that Notch has received an interview in a popular PC magazine and been plugged on the ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' blog, [[http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21336 some people]] are calling the demise of the game. The cries of "Notch is a sellout!" became even more common among fans once he announced ''Minecraft'' would come to the {{Xbox 360}}, which happened because of the game's huge success. And then, the game was handed to Microsoft. It was received as well as you would imagine.

* Music/CradleOfFilth: ''Thornography'' apparently brought them mainstream. However mainstream extreme black metal can get. Some people will claim they're not black metal anymore, and/or never were in the first place. (TheOtherWiki, for it's part, says they "evolved" from simple Black Metal into a fusion band - that includes Black Metal elements)

** Then there's a sizeable percentage of those complaining about the "Dumbening" whose range from the understandable complaints[[note]]Armors and outfits becoming less and less modular and customizable, spells and enchantments dwindling in numbers and variety, abandonment of mechanics like birthsigns (which granted passive bonuses and railroaded the status growths into a class archetype) and so on[[/note]] to unreasonable cryouts, like emulating the gigantic map of Daggerfall in the recent games. That is, a world map of 161,600 km in size, roughly the size of Great Britain according to the OtherWiki. [[SarcasmMode Certainly a reasonable thing for reconstructing in the same detail with nowadays' standards...!]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'s It's Only Rock and Roll'' special (TheOneWith Music/TheBackstreetBoys), Francine has this opinion on Backstreet, that they're [[MoneyDearBoy only in it for the money]] and not for the art, (not to mention Muffy's {{fangirl}}[[{{Squee}} ing]]), which she sticks to for the whole special. Later, she argues with her band U-Stink for making a television appearance and quits because she accused them of selling out. [[TheOtherDarrin She is then replaced with a]] [[CompanionCube drum machine.]]

* Many people hate Funko Pops for this reason and for making figure collecting "mainstream", as well as the fact that they tend to overshadow other vinyl figures.

You'd think that your favorite artist making it big would be something to celebrate. To a large segment of modern youth, and to the eternal critic, however, a wide fanbase does not mean the media in question appeals to a lot of people, but rather that it is [[LowestCommonDenominator low-IQ trash with No Soul]] that has "Become Commercial" and "Sold Out", possibly to the Marketing Machine or even {{Satan}} Himself. This results in a subsection of FanDumb and an extreme form of the UnpleasableFanbase.

* Ever since the fidget spinners skyrocketed to becoming a trend in 2017, they received intense hatred. Haters claim that what was supposed to be a stress reliever is now a status symbol for being cool. They also admit they're annoying.

* In cities that get a lot of tourism, locals have a tendency to avoid the popular, touristy areas of the city, bashing said areas as being full of cheesy tourist traps. [[UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity Times Square]] and [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco Fisherman's Wharf]] are notorious for this.
