!!'''UsefulNotes/{{Buddha}}'''

The trifecta of holy figure no-nos, while badmouthing Buddha will at most get you dirty looks from Buddhist practitioners, some countries do '''not''' allow for one to mess around with their deities. This is what got the game ''Fight of Gods'' banned in Thailand, shortly after Malaysia banned it for the appearance of both Jesus and Buddha (and the fact that people were calling the developers to add Muhammad to the game).

Another quick way to anger an entire nation is to depict their flag upside down. Bonus points if the flag is a simple striped one and rotating it 180 degrees results in a flag of ''a different country''.

* ''[[Creator/FoxNewsChannel Fox & Friends]]'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29lmR_357rA cite a university study]] regarding Rogers and, essentially, say he ruined the children watching by giving them a sense of entitlement. All you need do is read the comments on the video for just how much hatred viewers had for the hosts by the end of it.

Unfortunately, there are people who drank Fox's kool-aid, some can be seen lumping Mister Rogers and Bill Nye together and bashing both of them on Facebook when the latter's controversial new show on Netflix came out.

** Though ever since 2015 it's subverted and Valve essentially become valid acceptable target, what with the "paid mods", continuous reliance on community to provide content instead of bringing content by themselves, ditching support of older games, weapon skins and crates, the report that nobody in Valve interested or even planning to develop single-player games, several key members including chief writer Marc Laidlaw left Valve, and the nadir point, the announcement of Artifact, a card game based of DOTA, the first time Valve receives more dislikes than likes based on the announcement videos alone.

Additionally, their decision to discontinue accepting [=PayPal=] payments in Asia due to partnership with e-Club Singapore also angered a sizable amount of South-East Asians. And then there's Gabe proclaiming he's a brony, also setting off a "RuinedForever!" among a sizable group of people who dislike them.

* Anime And Manga in general. Many fans have reasons of their own which they fly off the handle should this button be pressed, but expressing your distaste or jest for it as a whole will probably cause a lot of otakus to pin you down and write you off in many ways: as an uncultured slob who has a rose-tinted view on "crappy" American, or whatever non-Japanese country you're from, media, a dead eyed hopeless bully who has no hope and joy in their dead, lifeless heart, someone who supports censorship and bowdlerizing art and expression as a whole, an oppressive xenophobic closeminded bigot, or all of the above. Even not knowing much about it (e.i. "I watched a manga", "Hey what episode is when [[CowboyBeBopAtHisComputer Cowboy Bebop is at his computer]]") will probably get you a lot of flak.

* The root cause of "Derpygate" within the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' community was due to this. Originally an in-joke by the fandom, the pony originally known as "Derpy" was often portrayed by many bronies as a CuteClumsyGirl and a good mother to her foal, Dinky, that tries her best despite her vision problems and clumsiness. In Season 2, she made an extended appearance in an episode that ended up being pretty close to that portrayal, with a boyish voice, due to the VA thinking Derpy was male. Good Ol' MoralGuardians, outraged as usual and considering this offensive to the mentally disabled, got offended on their behalf, and demanded the character be either UnPersoned or edited to be less "Ableist". She ended up not making any appearances until Season 4 and was slient and nameless until Season 5 where she was given another different voice and a different name, "Muffins".
