* Anybody who says that the works of Creator/WilliamShakespeare are anything less than the greatest produced in the English language will be mocked as a philistine who has no appreciation for real talent. The only exception used to be ''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'', and only because [[NoTrueScotsman respectable critics assumed that Shakespeare could never have written something that crude]], but after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII this has been completely turned around, likely because of [[HumansAreBastards all the stuff that happened in that conflict]], and the idea that the play isn't authentic is considered laughable.
** This even goes as far as people trying to acquit the Bard of the accusations of ValuesDissonance: many now earnestly argue that ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'' is meant to be sarcastic and that ''Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice'' actually opposes anti-semitism, when it is far more likely that neither is the case and that Shakespeare was no more forward-thinking than any of his contemporaries. Note that neither play was ''[[DeathOfTheAuthor ever]]'' interpreted like this until misogyny and racism became unacceptable in society.

* There is a popular myth that when Rogers' car was stolen it was reported on the news the same day, and the next day the car was back with a note of apology and a fresh coat of wax.

* There is a popular myth that when Rogers' car was stolen it was reported on the news the same day, and the next day the car was back with a note of apology and a fresh coat of wax. Impressively, even Snopes lists its veracity as "inconclusive".

* It's ''really'' (and with good reason) rare to see criticism of works by acclaimed directors like Creator/JeanLucGodard, Creator/FrancoisTruffaut, Creator/FedericoFellini, Creator/IngmarBergman, Creator/MichelangeloAntonioni, Creator/AndreiTarkovsky, AgnesVarda, Creator/RobertoRossellini, Creator/YasujiroOzu, Creator/KenjiMizoguchi, Creator/SatyajitRay, Creator/AkiraKurosawa, the majority of ItalianNeorealism, FrenchNewWave (and Japanese New Wave, Czechoslovak New Wave, New German Cinema, Fifth and Sixth Generation of Chinese Cinema, etc) and other respected auteurs. Whenever criticism does occur it's usually by people who don't watch these kind of films in the first place and therefore they aren't taken seriously anyway.

Like Mister Rogers, he has inspired many to love science and critical thinking. Go on, try to call him a fraud for debunking conspiracy theories on YouTube. However, his immunity eroded ''a bit'' somehow when his latest show, ''Bill Nye Saves The World'', hit Netflix, which caused climate change deniers, anti-vaxxers, homophobics and anti-GMO bodies to denounce him. Nowadays, it's not uncommon to see huge battles on his Facebook pages between his true fans and these groups.

* Part of the reason why the [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfJuJrqFhXM National Anthem]] is so greatly reviled: in addition to being (horribly) sung by [[AcceptableTargets 4Kids]]' voice actors, the fact that they were doing as their respective characters came across as offensive to many viewers. Also, [[{{Irony}} most of the characters came from non-American shows]].

Like Mister Rogers and Bill Nye above, it is considered to be extremely bad taste to mock [=LeVar=] Burton. He is widely regarded as the figurehead of literacy in the United States by means of inspiring the love of reading and science through Series/ReadingRainbow. This is especially true after PBS completely cut funding for the program back in 2009.

* American television in general, at least to people who are not American. Expressing your distaste for it can cause lots of ''Creator/{{Netflix}}'' owners to come at you and blame you for being so rose-tinted about your crappy culture and insulting something that is inherently better.

Perhaps because of his inspiration to many people across the internet when they were kids, Fred "Mister" Rogers is given this treatment across the internet. [[BerserkButton Try to make fun of this man]] and the hive mind will ''eat you alive.'' While some people seemed to have drank Fox's kool aid and have taken to bashing him, these people are usually ignored, or receive their comeupperance in the form of a swift ban if a moderator happens to be present.
