* ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'' was generally regarded as a SoOkayItsAverage game, with its biggest flaw being [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks an extreme amount unnecessary changes]]. What pushed it to become an extremely disliked game was the ExecutiveMeddling during development; the drastic changes were caused by Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto thinking the initial plan would've been too much like ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'', and the infamous restriction of only using pre-established ''Mario'' characters also stemmed from this. This only got worse when it became clear that [[MagnumOpusDissonance Nintendo was really proud of the game]], and stated that they planned to keep ''Sticker Star'''s formula for future ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' games. In the end, fans are much more likely to talk about how ''Sticker Star'' affected the franchise than they are to talk about its plot, gameplay, or anything else.

* Also in the game show world- if people don't remember ''Series/PressYourLuck'' for the {{Whammy}}, then they remember it for Michael Larson's infamous manipulation of the Big Board's light patterns, resulting in him getting a huge haul.

** The entire 2016 election, really. Virtually all the coverage has been focused on Trump's inflammatory rhetoric and behavior, turning what should be major moments in election history (such as Hilary's status as the first female presidential candidate for a major party) into mere footnotes.

* Barely one day into the 2016 Republican National Convention, the convention itself was quickly overshadowed by the controversy that ensued when it came to light that Melania Trump's speech had plagiarized portions of a speech given by Michelle Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

* Barely one day into While Melania Trump was always expected to be in the center of the spotlight at the 2016 Republican National Convention, the convention itself was quickly overshadowed by the controversy that ensued when it came to light that Melania Trump's parts of her speech had plagiarized portions of a speech given by Michelle Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

* The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|2016}}'' remake ran into this problem from reaction to the premise and trailers in that many fans thought it would be bad because of issues such as bad writing and that it ignores the previous lore. Sony launched an InternetCounterattack where every critic hates women and made personal assaults on well thought of and respected reviewers, and the controversy exploded to the point where it would be credible and fair to say that criticism is out of spite, people oppose the film based on how Sony CantTakeCriticism. It doesn't help that the trailers were coming off the heels of the Music/{{Kesha}} scandal within their music division, and Sony was pretty much desperate to save face after ''that'' episode. Needless to say, [[GoneHorriblyWrong it appears to have backfired spectacularly]], as even with [[CriticalDissonance a respectable opening weekend box office intake]] there are still people willing to trash it based solely on the DearNegativeReader campaign to this day.

* The Brazilian congressman Jair Bolsonaro is very know in the country for his controversial opinions. For example, in a interview for Playboy magazine in 2011, he said he prefer to see his son death rather to be a homosexual. In 2014, he said to a congresswoman during a heated discussion she doesn’t deserve to be raped because she is too ugly. But his most controversial moment was in the beginning of 2016 when during the process of Dilma Rousself’s impeachment, he paid homage to colonel Brilhante Ulstra, a well know torturer during the military dictatorship in Brazil which tortured Dilma and many others. Many criticized this action and even some of his supporters think he gone too far. Now he could lost his mandate for speak in favor of torture.

** Jynx is known more for the controversy surrounding it's appearance and the debate about just what it's supposed to be than anything else. It's not really useful in battle and very few like its design. The list of things it has been suggested to be include a Viking, opera singer, ganguro (Japanese fashion trend), and Yama-uba (a kind of {{Youkai}}), among others. Unfortunately, whatever it is, its old design looked offensively like a racial stereotype of African-American people, its design was changed to have purple skin, animé episodes featuring Jynx were either edited or withheld from airing in the West, and its sprite was edited to have purple skin in the international version of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and in the Virtual Console release of [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon Yelllow]].
