* Wrestling/{{Ivory}} got this after ''Tough Enough III'' during a bikini contest at a house show, which she competed in to show fans stripping wasn't anything special and that the hardworking kids from the contest deserved to be on shows more than the no talent "divas" who could only appeal to people by being half naked. Ironically, Ivory's HeelFaceTurn would occur not long after she managed to get so much heel heat from an unexpected source.

* The practice of throwing things at despised public figures dates back further than anyone can remember. According to the ancient Roman biographer and historian Suetonius, when Emperor Claudius had some trouble supplying Rome's granaries at one point (when famine and storms disrupted their supply lines), an angry mob of hungry Romans gathered and furiously pelted him with stale bread crusts. In response to this crisis, he immediately enacted laws insuring grain ships against loss and granting the suppliers with various tax advantages in order to [[TrainsRunOnTime keep the supply lines flowing]]. Suetonius goes on to say those laws remained in force forever afterward to his own time.

He was arrested and tortured for that, but he was hailed all around the Arab world -- indeed, all over the Western world -- as a hero. The sources for the "torture" claims are questionable at best, however.
