* Creator/BenAffleck appeared on the genealogy program ''Finding Your Roots'', and learned that he he was distantly related to his close friend Creator/MattDamon, but also had ancestors who owned slaves in Georgia. Embarrassed, he succeeded in getting that information removed from his particular episode, until it was learned that he had that information removed. He ended up issuing a press release apologizing for the act.

** In "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs", the kids become enthusiastic about having to read ''Literature/TheCatcherInTheRye'' after finding out it was banned in some schools and supposedly inspired people to kill celebrities. When they actually read the book, however, they're annoyed that it's a normal novel with the occasional curse word.

* In an 2011 interview with ''The New York Times'', Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the co-creators of ''South Park'', were asked if they ever found out if Tom Cruise was responsible for pressuring Viacom into not rebroadcasting the episode "Trapped in the Closet" despite his denial. This was Stone's response:
-->"It was Tom Cruise! Who else would it be? It was Tom Cruise! And it was just stupid of Tom Cruise and Viacom, because it made more people see the episode."

* One of Dara O'Briain's stand-up routines discusses the briefing notes he sometimes gets when he does corporate gigs for particular organizations which ask him not to mention certain things. Asking a comedian not to mention something, as he notes, is like "a red flag to a bull". He also points out that most of the time he wouldn't even have considered mentioning whatever he was asked not to mention in the first place if the extremely vague reasons why he shouldn't mention it hadn't made him all the more curious about it.
** He actually had to deal with an incident like this on ''Series/MockTheWeek'' where the executive producer ordered the comedians not to mention the blindness of a politician who the executive producer was friends with. Cue 5 minutes of jokes only about his blindness.

* ''LetsPlay/{{Pewdiepie}}'' has done quite a bit of these by accident in which he apologizes to them, but the biggest one that has happened is the entire "Website/{{Youtube}} Drama" fiasco in which he points out that drama needs to stop because it affects everybody by being on the edge of their seats. His main point however is about the people who use the mob mentality as a way to police a Youtuber to attack and ruin someone's life. Unfortunately, people kind of latched on the drama part and barely anybody briefly touched upon his main point. Felix has admitted that he kind of jumped the gun on this one as he didn't really explain his main point properly.

* There is a real chance that if it weren't for [[MoralGuardians Patricia Pulling]] and her campaign against ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', the game would have remained a niche market and probably never would have become the geekdom rite of passage it has become. This also had a run in 1980 with the disappearance of James Egbert III, a young man who played the game. The detective assigned to Egbert's disappearance wrote a book about it, suggesting the game had something to do Egbert going missing. It didn't, and Egbert was eventually found alive and unhurt. Still, ''Dungeons and Dragons'' went from grossing $2.3 million in 1979 to $8.7 in 1980, largely as a result of all the negative press denouncing it as "Satanic propaganda;" many people ended up playing it just to see what all the fuss was about.

** Digital Homicide, the same developers behind ''The Slaughtering Grounds'', made another game called ''Deadly Profits'', which is naturally full of bugs and is on Steam's early access for $25. Sterling did a squirty play of it and wasn't impressed by the game. Knowing that people would warn others on the Steam forums about the game's shoddiness, Digital Homicide purges the forums of any "negative" threads and swiftly bans anyone that has anything bad to say about the game or if they even mention Sterling at all. Obviously, this only helped spread the word about the game's shoddiness and the company's reputation faster.
