* The 2017 Unite the Right white nationalist rally in Charlottesville and vehicular homicide is less notable for the attack itself than for the uproar over President Donald Trump's remarks about it.

* The [[PortingDisaster Switch port]] of ''Overcooked'' is less known for its poor quality and more known for kicking off the chain of events that led to [[WebOriginal/CoolGamesInc Nick]] [[WebOriginal/CarBoys Robinson's]] harrassment allegations.

** Jynx is known more for the controversy surrounding its 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 like a racial stereotype of black people. As a result, its design was changed to have purple skin, anime 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 versions of ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver'' and in the Virtual Console release of ''[[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pokémon Yellow]]''.

* ''WebComic/{{Sonichu}}'' was already considered a terrible webcomic, but its author being openly homophobic and having a bad reputation due to their attitude and online gives it further infamy.

* ''Kodomo no Jikan'', proposed title ''Nymphet'', was licensed by publisher Seven Seas but never released in America due to its lolicon overtones. They had only seen the first book (which isn't too bad in terms of content). Then the controversy erupted. Initially, Seven Seas defended the title, but a combination of major book chains refusing to stock it and their reading the later volumes (which come very close to violating the PROTECT Act) caused them to change their mind and drop it.

* Music/JerryLeeLewis, known for "Great Balls of Fire" among other songs, was considered a serious competitor to Music/ElvisPresley at his peak. Nowadays he's probably best remembered for [[{{Lolicon}} marrying his twelve-year-old cousin]] and a persistent rumor that he tried to settle his rivalry with Elvis by hiring a guy to kill him.

* ''ComicBook/UncannyAvengers'' and its writer, the until-then-highly-regarded Rick Remender, fell victim to this. The book was ''intended'' to be an anti-racism story showing {{mutants}} and humans working together for tolerance, but unfortunately, a very badly worded CharacterFilibuster in the fifth issue lent the impression [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop that the message was]] "Minorities need to give up their culture and assimilate to be accepted." When criticized on Website/{{Twitter}} for this scene, [[DiggingYourselfDeeper Remender responded with a strange, angry outburst]] that infamously included a SuicideDare. He apologized the following day, but the damage was done, and Marvel proceeded to greatly de-emphasize the book in its marketing. Reflective reviews generally see it as a SoOkayItsAverage series with ''extremely'' confused politics.

Reflective reviews generally see it as a SoOkayItsAverage series at best, with ''extremely'' confused politics.

* ''Film/AliceThroughTheLookingGlass'' was initially known for being Creator/AlanRickman's last film before his death, but now, it's largely overshadowed by the nasty divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, including Heard alleging that [[DomesticAbuse Depp beat her]], the week before it came out.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmYog5DszEI A famous advertisment by Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.

** A documentary called '' Hitler's Descendants'' showed how family members related to the man, either by blood or through marriage lived with the backlash of this. As a result, some family members changed their sir names, some women married Jewish men as a form of atonement, and some men died refusing to have children out of fear they'd create another Hitler.

* Former WebOriginal/{{Vine}} user and Series/{{Bizaardvark}} star Jake Paul has become this since his move to Los Angeles. [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity While still having a large fandom]], he is also known for his reckless behaviour that has earned him the wrath of annoyed neighbours and a departure from Bizaardvark.

In addition, a strained relationship with Alissa Violet and a tasteless joke made to a Kazakh fan haven't helped.
