* [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2015/04/29/bud_light_s_no_means_up_for_whatever_the_worst_possible_slogan_for_a_beer.html Bud Light's infamous "remove no from your vocabulary" ad campaign]] was widely criticized for perpetuating rape culture. While "removing no from your vocabulary" was likely intended to mean that nobody would want to refuse to drink a Bud Light, it instead brought up implications of intoxicating a person and removing their ability to withhold consent to sex (legally, an intoxicated person cannot give consent to having sex, so anyone who has sex with them is essentially raping them).

* The character of Wrestling/MuhammadHassan, a Arab-American wrestler who was angry at the United States for discriminating against him following the 9/11 attacks. It was a powerful gimmick that touched upon the real life social issue of Islamophobia. There was just one problem: the character was portrayed as a heel, which essentially meant that the Islamophobes were essentially the good guys in his storyline. Things were only made worse after the terrorist angle that aired the day of the London terrorist bombings in July 2005. Aside from being obviously TooSoon, it perpetuated the "All Muslims are Terrorists" stereotype and completely contradicted the original character of being an ordinary American standing up to discrimination.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73P9STckPLw A Pepsi ad]] from early 2017 shows a group of young people protesting over social issues and walking towards a line of police officers. Kendall Jenner, who is modeling nearby, decides to join the protest and offers a Pepsi to one of the police offers, eliciting a roar of applause from the protesters and apparently mending relations. Despite its intended message about peace, the [[https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/05/business/kendall-jenner-pepsi-ad.html ad was widely panned and pulled from television]] due to co-opting the very serious and controversial-at-the-time issue of police brutality and the raging protests against the new U.S. President Donald Trump to simply sell a product. Also rather disliked was the fact that rich, white and privileged Kendall Jenner is the one to mend issues (with the only "minority" group that she belongs to being women), while police brutality frequently targets poor and underprivileged minorities, and that the Trump administration is seen as favoring people like Jenner to those often in the line of police brutality.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'':In the episode "Ass Burgers", Stan is diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome despite having depression.He later finds out in the at a meeting that Aspergers is not a real disorder and all the people with the syndrome are just cynical jerks.This could imply that people with Aspergers are just depressed assholes, especially since it's revealed that Stan has turned to alcohism at the end of the episode.

* Salon.com [[http://www.salon.com/2009/08/11/16_candles/ was critical]] of the sexual politics of the films of Creator/JohnHughes. In ''Film/SixteenCandles'', the male lead [[BlackComedyRape casually jokes about raping the]] AlphaBitch while she's drunk; he doesn't do this, but the AlphaBitch and the local nerd have a sexual encounter of QuestionableConsent later on [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization which is treated as okay because she liked it]]. Both the male characters here are supposed to be sympathetic. As well, in ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'', the character Cameron pretends to be unconscious at one point so he can watch his best friend's girlfriend naked.

* Unintentionally done in ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}''. Following reader complaints that [[EverybodyCallsHimBarkeep Tina the Tech Writer]] was too stereotypically female, he created [=AnTina=], the "anti Tina", a female character who had liking for sports, a muscular build, and short hair. Readers were not happy with her either, claiming Adams was making fun of lesbians.
