* In ''Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon'', when David realizes that he'd transformed and killed six people the night before, he tries to get himself arrested so he won't be able to rampage when the full moon rises again. His attempt consists of insults shouted in a public square:
-->"Queen Elizabeth is a man! Prince Charles is a pagan! Winston Churchill was bullshit!"

* Part of the reason why the [[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]].

** On the week of Thatcher's death, the song "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead" from ''TheWizardOfOz'' sky-rocketed to the top of the pop-charts in Britain. A campaign to get a pro-Thatcher indie song from the early '80s to the top didn't work our nearly as well.

** In Asia, Valve is starting to lose this status to some, due to some unpopular decisions by the company recently (ie the discontinuing of support for [=PayPal=] payments in South East Asia due to partnership with a company called e-Club, which as a result forces people to leave their home to buy e-Club cards (prepaid cash cards) from 7-Eleven (which will then hit you with a service charge and Government Service Tax while you're at it, plus there's the risk of getting mugged while on your way to 7-Eleven from the bank's ATM, since many 7-Eleven stores in the region will only accept cash), and the recent imposing of region locking which made several games NoExportForYou (you can never get VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance on Steam in Asia, for example, due to Konami's exclusivity deal with Sony making the game PS-only in Asia, and boy are they enforcing it hard) or BadExportForYou (You can only get VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII in ''Japanese'' on Steam in Asia despite many in the South East and South Asian region not being able to speak Japanese- apparently the English version of the trilogy are to remain PlayStation3-exclusive in Asia). Also, Gabe admitting to be a brony did not go well with the many fandoms who're at war with bronies[[note]]Wars that the bronies, albeit a faction of extremely obnoxious ones, started.[[/note]].

* [=EMTs=] and paramedics fall under similar protections, and in some cases criminals who thought they were targeting police officers were horrified to discover they had accidentally attacked the [=EMTs=] who were there to help them. In some particularly rough areas they wear bulletproof vests with EMS clearly stamped on the front to avoid this sort of thing.

* Once again averted in ''[[Radio/TrueCapitalist True Capitalist Radio]]''. A broadcast of the show was interrupted when Ghost's dog, Templeton, chewed on the wires and electrocuted himself. While Templeton didn't receive any injuries, the trolls were sure to [[NeverLiveItDown exploit this]] so Ghost would have another thing to be upset about.

* Moon landing conspiracy theorists have fallen to the bottom of the conspiracy theory hierarchy in recent years, making the holdouts appear even more detached than the norm. One such theorist, Bart Sibrel, approached Buzz Aldrin and broached the subject. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wcrkxOgzhU Buzz... respectfully disagreed with his opinion.]] We mean [[MomentOfAwesome he punched the conspirator in the face]]. Mr. Sibrel tried to press charges and the judge dismissed the case after seeing the video, ruling it was self defense, and taking into account that Sibrel wasn't actually injured (just bruised and publically humiliated).

Although it was OK to say negative things about them at the time they were active, they have become completely sacred after the assassination of Music/JohnLennon. Nowadays, even saying that they're only "okay" will cause a massive backlash. That being said, insults directed towards John Lennon are acceptable as long as they have to do with his private life (such as the fact that he was such an abhorrent parent that its insulting to compare him to AbusiveParents and that he regularly beat his wife), saying that the band made a few bad albums and that the band is overrated.

overrated can also be done, but that is the limit.
