* Screenwriter C. Robert Cargill [[http://www.newsarama.com/28987-dr-strange-screenwriter-says-they-knew-social-justice-warriors-would-be-angry-over-the-ancient-one.html explained]] that the casting of the Ancient One in ''Film/DoctorStrange'' was an "unwinnable one". They cast Tilda Swinton, who isn't Tibetan or of Asian descent at all. However, making her from Tibet would lead the movie to be BannedInChina due to political problems between the two countries and making the character of any other Asian descent would open up even more cans of UnfortunateImplications worms.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK1YY9l8vDQ/ The performance]], full of smiling, giggling and cheering basically throws the point of the original version through the window, as if the group was making fun of what happened, or if the performers never bothered knowing what the lyrics were about.

* Defied by the makers of ''Disney/TheJungleBook'' where orangutan King Louie was originally intended to be played by Music/LouisArmstrong (a fact made fairly obvious by his name) but they realized that casting a black actor as an ape (who sings a song about how he wants to be human) could be seen as this, so they chose Sicilian-American [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Prima Louis Prima]] [[https://www.yahoo.com/movies/bp/can-disney-s-new--jungle-book--overcome-the-story-s-racist-perceptions-211742065.html instead]], which incidentally kept TheDanza aspect of the original choice.

However, critics have pointed that the ethnicity of Louie's voice actor is irrelevant because the characterisation of [[http://continuumjournal.org/index.php/33-volumes/issues/vol-1-no-2-amiri-baraka-revaluation-and-appreciation/vol-1-no-2-content/ysc-1-2/94-perceptions-of-race-in-three-generations-of-the-jungle-book%20this%20is%20kind%20of%20racist Louie himself still draws on stereotypes about African-Americans]].

* Similarly, Cravendale had an advert in which an angry bull's black patches are removed, leaving it white and "pure". Naturally, there were complaints, [[http://www.theguardian.com/media/2009/may/13/cravendale-milk-cows-cleared-racism but the ad was ultimately cleared by the Advertising Standards Authority]], who deemed it "unlikely to cause serious or widespread offence".

* ''Moon over June'' is [[http://forsakenwebcomics.blogspot.com/2011/04/warning-this-comic-is-very-nsfw-unless.html pretty]] [[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Moon_Over_June notorious]] in general and there's very little about its plot that ''doesn't'' carry unfortunate implications; the most commonly cited ones are Hatsuki's ability to 'try out' eating disorders and her deciding to become a lesbian to piss off her parents, Summer having such extreme contempt for men as to seriously consider putting any son she may end up having up for adoption, and Summer's [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnFemale career as a gynecologist being solely based on her desire to grope vaginas all day, which is totally fine]].
