** The casting of James Barbour as the Phantom in 2015, who was ''arrested and charged with statutory rape of a female minor'' in 2006 was, needless to say, ''not'' popular with the Phandom. Barbour, as of September 2016, remains in the production.

** When [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash and Tara]] saw the ad, they also pointed out that the male in the ad looking suspiciously like Robin Thicke [[NotHelpingYourCase makes it even worse]].

* The 2015 [[http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/nov/11/bloomingdales-apologizes-holiday-ad-date-rape-joke Bloomingdale's Christmas Catalog]] advised readers to "[[SlippingAMickey Spike your best friend’s eggnog]] when they’re not looking." That line, coupled with the image of a man staring intently at a woman who doesn't appear to notice him, caused an uproar as many people saw it as making light of, or even going as far as encouraging, DateRape. Bloomingdale's subsequently apologised for the gaffe, but were unable to pull it as all copies of the print catalog had already been sent out.

* The ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' movies get this as well. For two movies Ryan Evans was portrayed as a very campy and very fabulous AmbiguouslyGay guy. In ''2'' he and [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold goldhearted jerk]] [[LovableJock jock]] Chad Danforth even had a number together that basically dripped with HomoeroticSubtext. Complete with HeldGaze and switching clothes. The problem comes in ''Senior Year'' where Ryan, without there being even a conversatio between them on screen, gets paired with Kelsi (who had been paired with Jason til then). To most who watched it the whole thing felt like a badly-make excuse to avoid the rumours of Ryan being gay. Additionally, his interactions with Chad are cut to pretty much zero. Gets worse when you learn that Lucas Grabeel ''wanted'' Ryan to be gay and end up with Chad. [[SarcasmMode But of course you can't have a gay couple in a kids movie.]]

* "The Christmas Shoes" is a contemporary Christian song (and movie) about a melancholy gentleman who helps a boy buy a pair of shoes for his mother, who is on her deathbed and expected to pass away shortly, so she can greet {{Jesus}} while wearing them. The singer then muses to himself that God sent the kid to remind him what Christmas is all about; in other words, God [[ShootTheShaggyDog killed a little boy's mother]] on Christmas just to guilt some unrelated curmudgeon into appreciating the holidays. That observation has been made numerous times by various critics, but [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/team-nchick/nostalgia-chick/3250-top-10-disturbing-and-inescapable-christmas-songs the Nostalgia Chick]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5iyV7N5jvI Patton Oswalt]] probably put it best.

** The first issue of Nick Spencer's run generated an enormous backlash, to say the least. While absolutely no-one expects this to actually stick, [[spoiler: Steve un-ironically going "Hail Hydra" is regarded as lazy, shock-value "storytelling" at best. [[http://panels.net/2016/05/26/on-steve-rogers-1-antisemitism-and-publicity-stunts/ At worst, it's been called an insult to Cap's original creators (both of whom were Jewish and writing at a time when expressing anti-Nazi and anti-Hitler sentiments got them death threats)]] given the origins of [[MarvelCinematicUniverse MCU]] [=HYDRA=] (which is what most people will be familiar with)]]. To make matters worse, [[http://www.newsarama.com/29488-no-captain-america-is-not-a-nazi-looking-at-hydras-true-nature.html an article trying to explain HYDRA]] didn't do wonders either, as if they tried to say "Cap isn't a Nazi, he's just a fascist!" as if it was a better option. [[spoiler: While it was revealed in the following issue to be the result of a RealityWarper, many still found it lazy shock value and were angry at Spencer for lying about it in interviews and social media to drum up attention.]]
