* Subverted (via some parodying of the DoubleStandard) in an episode of ''TheGeorgeLopezShow''; George's wife works the neighborhood into a frenzy over a convicted sex offender living in the neighborhood. When a neighborhood mob shows up on the offender's doorstep, they find out "he's" a "she" - a [[HotForStudent former teacher who had sex with an underage student]], and had served time for it. The crowd (with the now-doubly indignant exception of the wife) disperses with basically an "Oh. Carry on, then."

* The ''ComicStrip/ThePerryBibleFellowship'' lampshades this trope with [[http://www.pbfcomics.com/215/ Kitty Photographer]]. A man lines up a photograph of his cat, but as he takes the picture, his toddler son runs across the shot while nude. When the film is developed, the developers are outraged and call the police, leading to the man's arrest and brutal beating by his cellmates.

* In an episode of ''Series/BeingHuman'', [[FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampire Mitchell]] mistakes one of his unlabeled discs of "vampire porn" for a ''Creator/LaurelAndHardy'' movie, and lends it out to one of the neighborhood boys. The result is a ''massive'' pedo hunt, complete with (misspelled) graffiti, eggings, angry mobs and being spat in the face.

* Though it was only revealed retroactively, the seduction of [[Franchise/SpiderMan Gwen Stacy by Norman Osborn]] may qualify. While there was no hunt on him for that reason, it did stir up the hate for him.

Nothing better to whip up some outrage in your story than making the bad guy a paedophile. More cynical works about this trope will often note that getting people whipped up into a mob-frenzy -- over any subject, but particularly one as emotive and genuinely shocking as this -- can be a very good way to distract and manipulate them.
