* Spooner (the band in which [[Music/{{Garbage}} Butch Vig and Duke Erikson]] played in the 80s) was scheduled to precede the Greg Kihn Band in the 1981 Summerfest in Milwaukee. A cancellation put them before Music/IronMaiden. The metalhead audience was not receptive to the New Wave band and showered them with beer cups.

** In one episode, Krusty the Clown was doing a show called "Krusty Komedy Klassics." When he sees the sign behind him, he realizes in shock that the first letters also [[UnfortunateImplications spell out the acronym for the "Ku Klux Klan"]] before giggling nervously and saying [[OhCrap "Not good..."]], which likewise resulted in the audience pelting things at him. They did something very similar later on in the (in-universe) show, where Krusty tries to do a skit called "Mad About Shoe" (where he makes out with an oversized shoe to the style of the sitcom ''MadAboutYou''), obviously not finding the joke funny. Krusty also took note of this and warned them that they certainly won't like the [[NYPDBlue NYPD Shoe]] skit, as it's overall the same thing.

* When Malachi organizes a talent show in ''Webcomic/CampWeedonwantcha'', a group of "ropes course" campers bring along a bunch of tomatoes in preparation for this. Subverted in that the "tomatoes" are actually ''rocks'' that have been painted red. [[spoiler: Also subverted in that all of the performances gain applause from the rest of the audience, so they leave dejectedly.]]

** No matter what you think of his actions, he made a lasting impression. Numerous people around the world have copied him, from Israel to Taiwan. Ironically, al-Zaidi himself had shoes thrown at him.

* August 10, 1995, St. Louis Cardinals visiting the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers held a promotion that day where they gave away free souviner baseballs to fans before the game. Some innings, lots of beer, and several close calls by the umpires going against the Dodgers later, fans show their displeasure by throwing thousands of said baseballs onto the field. Play was initially suspended so that the balls were cleaned up before being resumed, but then one fan threw another ball to center field and the umps immediately forfeited the game to the Cardinals - as of 2014 this was the last forfeit in Major League Baseball. (The Dodgers have given away baseballs since, but now it's ''after'' the game.)
