** Now that Nickelodeon owns the show, they're getting lots of criticism for their "changes" (new music, Layla's name to Aisha, etc.). Some of these people thought [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] created ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub''. The truth: Nickelodeon's undoing many of [=4Kids=]'s changes to make a more faithful English dub.

* Mike Love is blamed by many BeachBoys fans for the non-release of "Smile" in 1967. While Mike can be hated for a lot of reasons (look up his acceptance speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on behalf of the BeachBoys), this is not solely his fault. It was actually a combination of a royalties lawsuit against Capitol filed by the Beach Boys, Van Dyke Parks leaving, Brian Wilson's mental problems and the beginning of his drug problems, and a lack of support from other members (including Mike).

** On a similar note, Banks is often blamed for the creative conflicts that led to the departure of Gabriel and Hackett, down to excluding Gabriel from the songwriting for TheLambLiesDownOnBroadway and passive-aggressively mixing Hackett out of the band's second live album [[note]]It was a DeadpanSnarker quip from Banks that Hackett himself has denied ever actually happened[[/note]]. This of course ignores Gabriel's problems with his wife and daughter around the same time (although he did end up writing the lyrics and overall story of the album) and the fact that the Banks/Collins/Rutherford trio had already gelled into the main creative force in the band. In fact, the band started crediting individual writers for each song in order to escape the notion that Gabriel wrote everything.

* LizPhair has gained some infamy in the music industry for "selling out". Despite what some [[BrokenBase fans]] choose to believe, it wasn't Liz's fault. Her indie record label Matador Records dumped her onto the major Capitol Records. They wouldn't give her money to record an album unless she worked with mainstream producers and made a pop album. If Matador Records didn't give Liz away, then she most likely would have continued on her indie rock route.

* All of the books with "Creator/TomClancy's" on the cover were, in fact, written by other authors, with pretty much no imput on the contents of said books by Mr. Clancy himself, past laying out the setting for the various series. When people complain about Mr. Clancy's works, however, often those licensed books are cited as examples of the quality of his writing (or, specifically, lack thereof).

* Richard Knaak of the [[Franchise/{{Warcraft}} World of Warcraft]] Lore does recieve some of this. While the man does certainly have weaknesses in his writing style (Mary Sues for instance) he doesn't exactly go around changing the lore as he sees fit. He does discuss things with the rest of the lore team before hand, and he does have to get their approval before he makes any major change. While he is guilty of at least a few sins, changing the lore because he feels like it isn't one of them.

** Speaking of UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|OfComicBooks}}, a lot of people blame Fredric Wertham solely for the creation of the Comics Code, while he is only indirectly responsible for it. He published ''Seduction of the Innocent'' which lead to the [[NewMediaAreEvil social panic]], which lead to the Code for sure. However, he was actually relatively moderate on the issue -- he simply wanted comics to have a rating system, not for any remotely objectionable content to be banned.

** EricBischoff has said in multiple places (like [[RicFlair Ric Flair's]] podcast) that '''he''' booked the controversial Starrcade 1997 finish. Sting showed up on the day of the event pale and out of shape (Sting was struggling with substance abuse and marital problems unbeknownst to Bischoff at that time) and Bischoff panicked. He shortened the match and changed the finish a few hours before showtime. Bischoff is adamant that Hogan lobbied for the original finish to put Sting over clean because of the year-plus that had been put into the build. As for the pacing of the count, Nick Patrick said he simply forgot about the change to the match and counted regularly.

Added DiffLines:

* Julian Fellowes got a lot of hate from fans of ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' for [[spoiler:killing off Sybil Crawley]] but that idea came from actress Jessica Brown Findlay, who wanted to leave the show and not return in any later seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the biggest controversies of the 2013-14 NHL realignment was that the Chicago Blackhawks and Detroit Red Wings were placed in separate conferences (the West and East, respectively), thus breaking up one of the leagues biggest rivalries. Fans naturally blamed NHL Comissioner Gary Bettman for it since he has a history of disregarding league traditions. However, it was actually the Red Wings who requested they be placed in the Eastern Conference because they were sick of being forced to play a quarter of their games three time zones away, making their players fatigued and screwing up TV broadcast times.

** Creator/MichaelBay tends to receive all of the scorn of the fan base in spite of simply being a Producer for the film. This tends to be par the course for anything Bay is associated with. In a somewhat ironic turn, it turns out that Bay is actually responsible for ''nixing'' a lot of bad ideas that others wanted to put in, since he's now fairly aware of how a fanbase will react to changes. But, due to being who he is, he ends up being blamed for a lot of the ideas ''he was responsible for nixing''. Essentially, a lot of the people cursing his name should be ''thanking'' him for doing what they wanted!
