* In the ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' episode "Columns", Ted deals with a worker (his former boss) who keeps belittling his ideas and being a jerk, prompting him to fire him. However, he finds himself unable to do it due to circumstances: his birthday, his wife left him and served him divorce papers, and his dog died. Finally, Ted has enough and decides to fire him at last. However, as he does, the worker has a heart attack. Ted thinks he's faking it and fires him anyway. The worker is then carried off in a stretcher and everyone despises Ted, including the paramedics.

* Used infamously in the ''Series/ICarly'' episode "iFred", when Freddie make an innocent comment about not liking the act of Fred, a web host, which Fred apparently overreacts to and shuts down his show, causing Freddie ([[GuiltByAssociationGag along with Carly and Sam]]) to be scorned by everyone in school and Freddie to be beaten up by Sam more than usual. Eventually, Carly and Sam [[OrderedApology force Freddie to apologize to Fred]], who then reveals that it was all just an act for publicity. Even after it's revealed that Freddie was shunned, beaten, and forced to go against his own opinion for nothing, he's ''still'' treated like crap and [[KarmaHoudini Fred gets away with it with no consequences]].

* In ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' Season Six episode "Stress Related", Carlton shows up (in Uncle Phil's place) to give a speech for Career Day at Ashley's school, but the audience quickly determines that he doesn't have a job, despite what he says about career success in general. And when a student in the audience quips that Carlton is a bum and causes laughter among everyone else present, another student actually has the nerve to raise her hand to question if that is, in fact, the truth. "Excuse me, sir. Are you really a bum?", [[DeadpanSnarker she]] ''[[DeadpanSnarker politely]]'' [[DeadpanSnarker inquires]]. He angrily snaps, "Back off, sister!", she's completely clueless as to WHY he would react so defensively in the first place, and then a third student in the audience has the nerve to stand up against Carlton and accuse him of having an "attitude problem"; as if to call him out on his defensive reaction and say that ''he'' was the one who made ''her'' feel unfairly persecuted, not vice versa.
