The Hulett-bashing has, however, mostly gone dormant and shifted to a focus on Konami ever since the ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' debacle. Pretty much ''everybody'' agrees that that mess was Konami's fault, especially in the wake of their abandonment of most AAA game development in 2015-16 to focus on mobile gaming and pachinko machines. While Konami's fraught relationship with Creator/HideoKojima, the director of ''Silent Hills'', tends to be portrayed as a one-way street a bit too often (Kojima had gone seriously overbudget on ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain''[='=]s TroubledProduction, putting him very much in Konami's bad graces), Konami's announcement of a ''Silent Hill'' pachinko machine just months after they canceled ''Silent Hills'' read like a deliberate insult towards the franchise and its fans.

* Creator/DougWalker. While he has done bad things in the company, they're limited to hiding away and not helping anyone, but because he's face of the site, he gets way more blame than Michaud and Rob, who everyone (even themselves) has said are the actually abusive heads of site while Doug just works for them.

** Bay gets a lot of hate for [[[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014 the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot]], despite only being a producer. Most likely because his name was played up more in promotional materials than that of Jonathan Liebesman, the director. Reportedly, Bay actually vetoed ideas that would have likely made the film even worse-recievd, such as the turtles being extraterrestrials instead of mutants.

** [[BrokenBase Feelings towards Snyder have become even more divisive]] following the release of the Ultimate Edition of the film. Fans of this cut have levied blame towards Warner Brothers for ordering Snyder to cut out 30 minutes of the film. Others have pointed out [[Film/Watchmen that this is not the first time Snyder had to cut down a movie's length]] to something manageable and that he should have known better than to make such a long film (as is, BvS was 2 and 1/2 hours in theaters, with the extended cut being 3 hours, a length very few studios will ''ever'' tolerate) Finally, there's a significant number of viewers who despise the Ultimate Edition as much as, if not even more, than the theatrical cut who very, very squarely place the blame on Snyder.

* Inverted with ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': For shipping fans who disliked the canon pairing of Naruto/Hinata, Creator/StudioPierrot has become the lightning rod of their hate, in great part because previously several of the staff from the studio had publicly declared themselves as [[CreatorsFavorite Hinata fans]] and they were the ones who originally came up with the idea of making the canon movie ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' (which details the story of how Naruto and Hinata became a couple), as such they blame them for [[ExecutiveMeddling forcing]] [[ArmedWithCanon their preferred pairing]] into the author Creator/MasashiKishimoto. Actually the opposite is true: Studio Pierrot had no control over the source manga, and the animation studio had to follow the author's directions, and also Kishimoto himself [[WordOfGod has claimed]] that the main OfficialCouple was ''his'' idea and it was decided from a while ago.

* Derrick Wyatt has been treated badly by the ''Franchise/{{Ben 10}}'' fandom ever since ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse Omniverse]]'' began. He has been blamed for changing the tone from the popular, yet [[BrokenBase fan-divided]] DarkerAndEdgier tone from ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Alien Force]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Ultimate Alien]]'' to a DenserAndWackier version of the LighterAndSofter original ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' series ever since creators Man of Action's departure to work in ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'', which has been met with backlash from longtime Spider-Man fans and due to the death of Creator/DwayneMcDuffie, in addition to the designs of the characters, most notably Kevin and Gwen being [[DemotedToExtra demoted to recurring status]] and also the fact that the third story arc of the series has been derided by fans as well. This backlash along with a mix of redundant questions, angry hate mail from fans of ''Alien Force'' and ''Ultimate Alien'' (and to a lesser extent, fans of the original series), and the [[TroubledProduction stressful forced rushing of production towards the end of ''Omniverse'']], resulted in him deactivating his DeviantArt account and [[CreatorBacklash swearing off ties to the franchise forever]] to the point he temporarily closed all questions, though were later reopened on his request that they have nothing to do with the franchise. Also blamed for the stylistic change is supervising producer Matt Youngberg, executive producer Tramm Wigzell, whose statements about that the show would be better without Gwen and Kevin and now-former president of Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Adult Swim Stuart Snyder for making the franchise as more toyetic with ''Omniverse''.
