* SheHulk was once a victim of a paparazzi who photographed her sunbathing, topless. Fortunately for Jen, the guy's editor airbrushed the photo, making her skin look flesh-colored instead of green (likely a routine editing job by someone who didn't realize she was supposed to be green). No-one who read the rag ever realized the woman in the picture was her.

-->'''Abigail Adams''': The reign of Mr. Adams has hitherto been one continued tempest of malignant passions. As president, he has never opened his lips without threatening or scolding. He is a repulsive pedant, a gross hypocrite, one of the most egregious fools upon the continent, a hideous, hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.

* As proof that this sort of thing is OlderThanTheyThink, in the 2010 biographical HBO miniseries about the life of UsefulNotes/JohnAdams, there is this dialogue between Adams and his rather upset wife, who is reading ''The Federalist Papers'', which has printed some rather absurd exaggerations and lies:

He is a repulsive pedant, a gross hypocrite, one of the most egregious fools upon the continent, a hideous, hermaphroditical character which has neither the force and firmness of a man, nor the gentleness and sensibility of a woman.
-->'''John Adams:''' It is beneath the President of the United States to take any notice of insinuations.
-->'''Mrs. Adams:''' In any other country, such filth would have been silenced long ago.
-->'''President Adams:''' Mr. Hamilton takes equal pains to ensure that the Federalist Paper are filled with scurrilous attacks on UsefulNotes/ThomasJefferson and his party.
-->'''Mrs. Adams:''' Think of all the vile falsehoods written about you-continue to be written about you. You may have patiently borne all the slanders, but I have not. "Before it is too late to retrieve our deranged affairs-"
-->'''President Adams:''' For goodness sake.
-->'''Mrs. Adams:''' - the people must demand the immediate resignation of old, querulous, bald, blind, crippled, toothless Adams.
-->''[[BeatPanel (Long Pause)]]''
-->'''President Adams:''' [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne I am not crippled.]]
-->'''Mrs. Adams:''' I find no amusement in this. Waste of paper and ink.
-->'''President Adams:''' Waste of time reading it, Abigail. Put it down.
-->'''Mrs. Adams:''' They would not say such a thing about [[UsefulNotes/GeorgeWashington Washington.]] They would not call George Washington hermaphroditical!
-->'''President Adams:''' They could call him toothless, though. ''(Both laugh)''

* Rita Skeeter's job description in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series; she was an immoral paparazzi who really didn't care who she hurt or whose reputation she ruined (or even if her information was exaggerated a little - or [[BlatantLies more than "a little") so long as she got the dirt on a subject. As it turned out, she was using an illegal method to get her stories, [[spoiler: being an unlicensed Animagus who could turn herself into a beetle and listen in on any conversation like a fly on the wall, literally.]]
