Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'', the [[SequelGap long-awaited]] forth game of the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' franchise, became infamous shortly after release for having [[spoiler:Penelope Mouse, a NiceGirl in the previous game, pull a FaceHeelTurn and become a greedy {{Yandere}} without reason]] for a cheap PlotTwist, and for game to end with a cliffhanger. While fans were alright with the SequelHook, thinking that the franchise will have a major trilogy in the works similar to the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank Future'' trilogy, no fifth game was ever announced, and within a year, Sanzaru Games, who developed ''Thieves in Time'', confirmed that they're not making a sequel. Fans were so angry with the DownerEnding [[spoiler:and Penelope's [[{{Asspull}} poorly-written]] FaceHeelTurn]] that they've [[FanonDiscontinuity disowned the game]], and Sanzaru was declared a pariah of video games.


Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Film/{{Tron}} TRON: RUN/r]]'' got negative reception from fans for being [[ItsShortSoItSucks short]], for being released [[ReplacementScrappy instead]] of a third film that was cancelled due to ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'s'' failure at the box office, and for being made by Sanzaru Games, which is already very hated for screwing over the ''Franchise/SlyCooper'' games.

* Prior to release, ''{{Film/Ghost in the Shell|2017}}'' became embroiled in a whitewashing controversy over the decision to have Creator/ScarlettJohansson play the Major, who is Japanese in the source material. The whitewashing talk consumed the entire discussion about the film, and was cited by the studio as one of the reasons for its financial failure.

Ironically, audiences in Japan weren't all that bothered by the casting choices and praised the film and Johansson's performance.

* {{Britpop}} band Kula Shaker are better remembered for the controversy that destroyed their career than their psychedelic/Indian-influenced sixties-revivalist music. Already unpopular with critics thanks to their relatively unhip influences and suspicions that they owed their career to their lead singer Crispian Mills being the son of the actor Hayley Mills, things went completely pear-shaped when Mills enthusiastically discussed his hope that the swastika would be reclaimed for [[NonNaziSwastika its positive mystical meanings]] during a newspaper interview. Some research then discovered that Mills's previous band The Objects of Desire had included a former member of the National Front (who was Mills's mother's boyfriend at the time), and had played at a conspiracy theory conference in London that had also featured notorious Holocaust-deniers and anti-Semites among the speakers. This was enough to get Mills branded irretrievably as a neo-Nazi and the band's career stopped dead.

* Creator/DonaldTrump's offensive remarks towards Mexican illegal immigrants led to such backlash that it resulted in both the Miss Universe pageant and his show, ''Series/TheApprentice'' taken off of NBC. His continued remarks and unexpectedly successful election as the President of the United States in 2016 has resulted in the programs that were once his largest direct contribution to pop culture becoming just mild footnotes in his story.

* ''WebComic/CtrlAltDel'' is more well known for the [[ConvenientMiscarriage CADbortion]] arc and its writer's reputation as an arrogant jerk than anything else. Accusations of being a ''WebComic/PennyArcade'' knockoff haven't helped.

Added DiffLines:

** Among the religious crowd who would generally be this movie's target audience, there's Creator/RidleyScott, an atheist, choosing to depict the Plagues and Parting of the Sea as mostly natural phenomena instead of divine miracles; and, before the film came out, Creator/ChristianBale describing the real Moses as "likely schizophrenic and was one of the most barbaric individuals that I ever read about in my life."

Compare and contrast NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity, ControversyProofImage, and DeaderThanDisco. When a whole genre gets held under controversy, it would become TheNewRockAndRoll. Sometimes may overlap with BileFascination, in which an audience is drawn towards a work because of their curiosity about the uproar.

* Just for Feet were, once upon a time, a growing shoe retailer who distinguished themselves with basketball courts inside stores, an in-store snack bar, in-store appearances by professional athletes, and a large clearance section among others. Nowadays, however, they are known for being taken down by a terrible Super Bowl commercial[[note]]it depicted a barefoot runner in the Kenyan desert being hunted by a Humvee of white men, who is drugged and wakes up to discover shoes on his feet[[/note]] accused of being racist and insensitive. The ad, alongside accusations of accounting fraud, helped bankrupt the company, which collapsed not too long afterwards, and it's all that they're known for now.
