* InUniverse example with ''Film/TropicThunder''. One of the actor characters, Kirk Lazarus, who is an {{expy}} of Heath Ledger, was cast in the role of Sergeant Osiris. Because of this, he had to undergo extensive surgeries to appear as African American and adopt an accent similar to Ebonics to sell the effect, which led to the only other major African American character in the film, rapper Alpa Chino, criticizing him frequently for the action, as well as a news report noting the controversy. What makes this absurd is that Alpa himself is a stereotypical character, and even gets slapped by ''Kirk'' for taking it for granted that he (Alpa) has NWordPrivileges.

* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'': In his WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic [[https://youtu.be/qoFpIUQnQrc?t=10m56s review of the film]], Creator/DougWalker took issue with Matt and Elektra's first meeting, which involves them fighting in an open playground when he won't stop trying to get her name.
-->'''NC:''' Okay, so...where do I begin with this? First of all, I think she's making it pretty clear she's not interested in your stalker ass. If she wanted, she could call the cops on you for being a creeper and grabbing her. But, nah, it makes much more sense to fight him, which leads to the second and most obvious problem: she's fighting a blind guy! She doesn't know he has super senses and neither does anyone else, so, really, what is there to gain? If you lose, you got beaten by a blind guy. Pretty pathetic. But if you win, congrats, '''you beat the shit out of a fucking blind guy'''. How does anyone come out looking good in this scenario?

ChristopherColumbus and other Europeans come along and teach them agriculture and build modern cities. [[https://www.mediaite.com/online/ben-shapiros-daily-wire-website-posts-racist-video-mocking-native-americans-for-columbus-day/ ''Mediaite'']] accused the video of "excusing ethnic genocide by depicting Native Americans as cannibals and savages who weren't tamed until white Europeans came to America and took their land."

* A 2017 partnership between Marvel and arms manufacturer Northrup Grumman has drawn [[http://www.cbr.com/marvel-northrop-gumman-partnership-angers-fans/ sharp criticism]] mere hours after announcement, with many calling Marvel out for essentially supporting a war profiteer and marketing it to children mere days after the infamous Las Vegas shooting, made worse by how several of Marvel's major heroes would canonically object to the agreement. The deal was cancelled less than a day after it was announced due to the backlash.

** The show tries to present a positive image of the LGBT community; however, it tends to rely on old stereotypes to tell jokes, which some people find offensive. A good example would be in the episode "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS8E18QuagmiresDad Quagmire's Dad]]", where Quagmire's father undergoes a sex-change operation. Despite Creator/SethMacFarlane claiming that the episode would be "the most sympathetic portrayal of a transsexual character that has ever been on television", [[http://www.thebacklot.com/is-family-guys-seth-macfarlane-a-complete-idiot/05/2010/ the episode features jokes like Brian puking for 30 seconds after finding out he had just fucked a transexual, characters using pronouns like "it" to refer to Ida, and comparing transgender people to sex offenders]].
