* Music/GwenStefani's cartoon ''Kuu Kuu Harajuku'' is more known for complaints from various blogs and sites about its Japanese "cultural appropriation" than any aspect of the show itself. It doesn't even have a page on ThisVeryWiki.

** Then there is JohnCWright, who despite of usually being considered a better writer than his friend VoxDay is similarly despised because of his being accomplice to the attempted sabotage of the Hugo award; his savage, homophobic disparagement of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' creators for daring to end the series on a LesYay note (see below), and his [[GodwinsLaw comparing]] Creator/TerryPratchett to none other than '''UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler''' because of the former's endorsement of voluntary euthanasia.

* Within a month of starting ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' gained an unsightly reputation due to various changes such as removing popular character Ms. Bellum for being too fanservicey. It also has a [=TransNature=] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything metaphor]] for transgender people episode with a BrokenAesop that bugged a lot of people.

* Music/TheBlackCrowes' third album, Amorica. Coming off their five-times-platinum predecessor, expectations were high. For the album cover, the band chose the cover of the bicentennial issue of Hustle Magazine. Don't worry, there's no nudity whatsoever. It's a close-up of a woman's bikini-clad crotch (for the bicentennial, the bikini has an American flag print). However, being a porn pic taken in the 70s, there is a tiny bit of female pubic hair sticking out from under the bikini. But [[SarcasmMode who cares about a little pubic hair, right]]? Moral Guardians through a hissy fit, and Wal-Mart and Target refused to carry it. Eventually a censored version was released, which kept the bikini swimsuit, but blacked out literally everything else. By then, it was too late to salvage the momentum of their previous album, and Amorica ended up only going gold. Damn shame, since the music got rave reviews.

** To make a case of how influential UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler was, you only need to go back to 1938 when a Belgian by the name of Hendrik De Man proposed a plan to reform the government in the times of the great depression. It was meant to oppress fascism thanks to the introduction of a social democracy of 5 classes controlled by technocrats. This man and his followers, who perpetrated a socialism that would reform the Belgian nation into a better one, called themselves nationalsocialists. After UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 they realized just [[ThoseWackyNazis how horrible it was as a name to have]] and they renamed themselves as ''demanists'', after the creator of their ideology, to get rid of all the fascist and hideous connotations they had.

* In 2016, three Republican governors -- Michigan's Rick Snyder, North Carolina's Pat [=McCrory=], and North Dakota's Jack Dalrymple -- were thrust into the national spotlight due to outrage over Snyder's handling of the Flint Water Crisis, [=McCrory=]'s support of House Bill 2, which forces transgender people to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender at birth,and Dalrymple's involvement in suppressing protests against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline over the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. These three scandals quickly tainted their reputations both in their respective states and on a national scale. [=McCrory=] lost re-election later that year.
* The Brazilian congressman Jair Bolsonaro is very well known in the country for his controversial opinions. For example, in an interview for Playboy magazine in 2011, he said he would prefer to see his son's death rather than to be a homosexual. In 2014, he said to a congresswoman during a heated discussion that 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 known 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's gone too far. Now he could lose his mandate for speaking in favor of torture.

* Nick Spencer's run on ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica'' rapidly became infamous for the frequency with which it was caught up in controversy. It began right at the starting bell, as the first issue of the run ended with the "[[ShockingSwerve shocking reveal]]" that Captain America had been [[EvilAllAlong a sleeper agent for the neo-Fascist terrorist group HYDRA his entire career]], which garnered overwhelmingly negative receptions ranging from mockery to loathing to outright offendedness. Spencer insisted that the reveal was true, only to reveal in the next issue that it was the result of the Comicbook/RedSkull using a RealityWarper to change Cap's past, leading to Spencer being attacked once again for [[LyingCreator lying about it]]. Subsequent issues also built up a reputation for Spencer inserting [[WriterOnBoard his politics]] and/or [[TakeThatCritics swipes at critics]], the latter of which he also did on Website/{{Twitter}}. Also, on Twitter, Spencer condemned the viral video of a bystander punching a Neo-Nazi at a protest on the basis that ''all'' violence is wrong, which was retweeted by the Neo-Nazi in question, further disgusting Spencer's public.

* The Ford Pinto was actually a good car with better reliability than its American competitors, but is remembered for the gas tank flaw from its first couple of years model that made it explode in rear-end collisions. Heck, even the trope referring to exploding cars is called EveryCarIsAPinto!

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "The Last Round-Up" appears to be only remembered for giving fan favorite character Derpy Hooves lines and a canon name, and then subsequently censoring her due to her portrayal and name being considered offensive to some, delving into her [[ComicallyCrossEyed cross-eyed look]]. Everything else about the episode (except for, perhaps, Pinkie's antics) is eclipsed by it.
