* A ''HomeAndAway'' storyline from 2005 centered on the paternity of Hayley Lawson's baby became unpopular with the fans, who were aware that Scott was the father from the beginning (the test results had been switched by the vengeful ex-girlfriend of the other prospective father, Kim) but were forced to sit through months of near misses with at least three other characters finding out but being prevented from revealing it for various reasons. The story is now dubbed "Paternitygate" on the Backtothebay message board.

* Wrestling/DanielBryan's firing in June 2010 was called "Tiegate". This was because the day before was the infamous [[Wrestling/TheNexus NXT Riot]], where Bryan choked out ring announcer Justin Roberts with his tie. Sponsors called for his release because, apparently, the action was reminiscent of the Wrestling/ChrisBenoit tragedy. The actions of the company was much maligned by virtually everyone, especially the wrestling community. Bryan was then rehired and became the final man on Team Cena later that year for ''Wrestling/SummerSlam'' -- it's speculated that he was never really fired, but accepted a release to make nice for the sponsors, and then was "rehired" after all the heat died off so the situation could be salvaged. As an epilogue, Bryan would later on become the most over wrestler since Stone Cold and the Rock, his popularity jump started by the above situation -- it was probably the greatest thing to ever happen to his career.
