* Wrestling/{{CMLL}} stripped Reina Jubuki of its World Women's title in 1995 after she used their willingness to let her compete elsewhere without her mask to fill [[ActingForTwo two slots]] in the Wrestling/WCWMondayNitro Womens title tournament with the Jubuki gimmick and as Akira Hokuto. Worse for Hokuto, WCW didn't have nearly as much interest as CMLL in actually doing anything with its women's title. (An alternate view is that CMLL was more displeased with WCW's Wrestling/{{AAA}} deal than anything Hokuto did herself)

* Sexy Star found herself blacklisted from several wrestling promotions in 2017 after an incident where she applied a legitimate armbar submission to Rosemary at the end of a match - with the apparent intention of hurting her. At the time she held a championship in AAA and was immediately stripped of it. A statement where she refused to apologise and was accused of VictimBlaming didn't help matters either.

* Likewise, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' had Bart [[IsThisThingStillOn turn the cameras on]] Gabbo (the puppet whose show dethroned Krusty the Klown) in time to broadcast him calling the kids of Springfield S.O.B.s across the city. Subverted when the incident makes the news and Kent Brockman tries to play it straight, but it turns out that the people of Springfield ''still'' adore Gabbo.
** An other episode deals with Kent Brockman himself being fired after Homer accidentally pours hot coffee onto his crotch and says a word "so horrible, it could only be said by Satan himself while on the toilet." Though what got Brockman fired ''wasn't'' the swearing on live TV (that got him demoted to weatherman while Arnie Pie took over as the anchor), but allegedly having cocaine in his cup of coffee (it was actually Splenda, but his boss "thought" that Splenda was slang for cocaine.)

* ''Making Mr. Right'' features an in-universe example. A popular soap opera character is killed off shortly after his portrayer gets into a scuffle with the beloved android main character. It's implied the encounter led to the firing.



* ''Film/MissCongeniality'' has an in-universe example: Gracie is able to enter the Miss United States pageant in place of the winner from New Jersey because the beauty queen had starred in a porn movie.
* ''Film/TheWeek'' has another in-universe example. Beloved chat show host Dick Romans was removed from television after an incident where he went mad on the air and started burning a book.



* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' had an InUniverse example. Leonard goes on a radio show to discuss his field of research. After a series of questions, Leonard's responses imply he thinks that there's no future in physics research and the head of the university threatens to fire him over it. A hastily (and drunkenly) written apology later, his job appears safe.

* An in-universe example occurs in Webcomic/DumbingOfAge. One morning, Robin [=DeSanto=], after supporting several anti-LGBT platforms, wakes up in the house of Leslie, a lesbian gender studies teacher, after sharing some drinks with her the night before. She refuses to leave upon discovering the press have camped outside the door. One two-day stalemate later, her party withdraws their endorsement of her. It didn't help that one of the interns on her campaign staff was revealed to be a date-rapist as well (although Robin, to her credit, rightly wanted to see him in ruins for what he'd done, but by then it was too late for her political career).

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' has an in-universe example: a popular [[DepravedKidsShowHost children's show]] [[NiceCharacterMeanActor host]] is fired after Angelica Pickles unwittingly reveals on air that she had said something extremely rude about children.

** A similar interview may have contributed to Steve Bannon's own exit from the White House chief strategist's post in mid-August (less than a month after Scaramucci had left the building). Bannon had on the record contradicted his superior's stance on North Korea, which reportedly infuriated President Trump despite the large role Bannon had played in shaping his campaign. Bannon would soon try to get back into Trump's good graces by supporting candidates loyal to Trump's agenda, including Roy Moore, in Senate races in an effort to unseat GOP incumbents he felt were too soft. As mentioned above, [[EpicFail the results were disastrous, the political blowback was swift, and the GOP found its Senate majority dangerously slimmer thanks to having lost a critical Senate seat in a deep-red state]], with even fellow Republicans agreeing that Bannon was to blame for the whole farce.

* While John Lasseter of Creator/{{Pixar}} fame has yet to be forced out of Disney entirely despite sexual harassment allegations against him, he did apologize and take a leave of absence in the aftermath. It didn't help the allegations came out ''only a few days'' before the release of ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}''.

** It's safe to say that ''Charlie Rose'' and ''Charlie Rose: The Week'' are over after the eponymous host of both shows got caught up in his own sexual assault scandal on November 20, 2017 (the first scheduled airing since Rose's fall was replaced with a rerun of ''Antiques Roadshow''). He also lost his gig with CBS in the fallout, being officially fired by both networks the day after.
