->''"Some of the papers ran slanderous stories saying the nuns cohabited with the marchers, and I made a bad joke about how I'd come down to get a little of that action, and Harry Belafonte grabbed me by the throat. He was not amused."''

* Addressed and ultimately deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'', where a soldier essentially throws an extremely petty hissy fit at Bojack (who admitely escalated the situation) and society sides with him and acts outraged on his behalf. Its shown that being part of the military most definitely does not make one above morally untoucheable.

* Online gaming-wise, a good way to find out if a game or service is given the "[[SacredCow Immunity To Criticism]]" label is how the service is received when it comes to discussions about {{GIFT}}. If you mention popular or non-sacred works such as ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'', ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'', ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', or anything on UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}} Live in such topics, bombardments of complaints will occur which basically summarize down to ''"The game/service should be [[KillItWithFire killed with fire]] and everyone that plays it should be beaten mercilessly. And i don't care if the {{griefer}}s are a VocalMinority."'' However, if you did to same to a game or service that is given SacredCow status, say ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', or the PlaystationNetwork service it will either fall on deaf ears and/or you will be bombarded with NoTrueScotsman type fallacies that the service or game is immune to this.

** Same thing with the original ''Film/StarWars'' trilogy.trilogy (though the edits made to later prints tend to be the target of mockery, the films as a whole are this trope).

** This does vary somewhat book to book, as a lot of the SchoolStudyMedia books have a LoveItOrHateIt - you either loved the book and embraced it whole-heartedly, or you loathed having it shoved down your throat getting poor grades on book reports.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' has lampooned pretty much everyone and everything on the planet, at one point or another, including the show and the creators themselves. However they ran into issues when it came to lampooning Muhammad. Parker and Stone went for lampooning the fact that he's not an acceptable target, instead (particularly because five years before the Muhammad taboo was back in the limelight, he had been depicted with no repercussion!). Of course, the second half of their 200th episode two-parter had all mention of Muhammad's name censored by the network, along with the speeches at the end (which didn't even mention Muhammad). Creator/ComedyCentral went so far as pulling it from ever airing again they won't even let it be streamed on the show's official website. You can find it [[http://xepisodes.com/south-park/season-14/episode-6-201/ here,]] but its being a TV rip means the bleeps are still in place.

* In the controversial ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "[[Recap/SouthParkS14E6TwoHundredOne 201]]", the scene where Buddha is depicted snorting cocaine alongside Jesus looking at pornography, parodying the {{double standard}}s of which religious figures are and aren't okay to show, ironically got the episode and the entire series banned in UsefulNotes/SriLanka.

* 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, Creator/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.
