*** It ended up being so bad in fact that it's one of the few issues both sides universally agree upon (albeit for different reasons depending on who you'll ask)...and considering how we're talking about one of the most infamous cases of InternetBackdraft of all time ([[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and we'll leave it at that]]), that's a real accomplishment

* The Wiccans featured in ''TrueBlood's'' fourth season are presented this way. First, it seemed everything the writers knew about Wicca came from browsing an occult shop for twenty minutes. Second, everyone in Marnie's coven except Holly and Jesus (both of whom we met in the previous season and were actually ''good'' examples of normal witches) were either sociopaths like Marnie and Roy, or idiot teenagers who were only there to piss off their parents. And then there's the rather painful mispronunciation of "Samhain".

* The whole point of the {{MTV}} reality show ''Series/TrueLife'' seems to be to subvert this, as they visit the lives of people involved in various subcultures regularly. More often than not, though, it winds up as a double-subversion.

* ''Series/CriminalMinds'' has a lot of examples for their serial killer rampage targets: swingers, spring breakers, religious fundamentalists, those obsession with First Person Shooters, ''{{Jackass}}''-style dares, BDSM, the music industry, HorribleHollywood, FightClubbing, absurdly corrupt politicians, the comic book industry... the Gothic culture (or at least the "Hollywood" emo, "life sucks so bad I may as well kill myself and wearing dark clothes is how I am screaming for help" kind) has been either the target or the RedHerring of at least three cases.

** Not even Bobby finding an honest and well-paying job that he actually enjoyed doing (and could do even if he was underage) was safe; because this job happened to be for-hire picking up of dog feces for rich guys who didn't cared to do it themselves. Hank saw it as denigrating work, he said so to Bobby's boss, and he eventually managed to guilt-talk the man into showcasing said denigration and convince Bobby to quit... by way of hiring some thugs to pretend to be bullies that mocked and then brutalized him by tossing him into a port-a-potty and send it rolling down a hill.

** Another episode showcased many people on Arlen (including Hank's boss Mr. Strickland) going through an "ecological" phase (Bobby got into it to try to impress a girl he liked at school). While Hank started the episode hating it, he eventually saw that it was a good thing and convinced Bobby to keep at it while all the other characters ditched it because it had stopped being "cool".

** There was also the "Down the Rabbit Hole" episode which dealt with SecondLife. This spanned over two episodes rather than the usual one. (Fame and relationships within the game had almost nothing to do with the murder, however. "Venus", or rather the girl dressed as her, was killed by [[spoiler: a professional assassin who was trying to take her real and online identity and use Second Life to gather information]].)
