* [[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 modelling 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 their protests to simply sell a product. Also rather disliked was the fact that rich, white, and privileged Kendall Jenner is the one to mend issues, while police brutality frequently targets poor and underprivileged minorities.

*** Some people [[http://womenwriteaboutcomics.com/2016/04/17/race-romance-daredevil-season-two/ have taken some issues with Matt's treatment of his potential love interests]]. Namely, that he takes great pains to hide the darker aspects of his personality from the white Karen Page, being very chivalrous and gentle with her, while being abrasive with the Afro-Latina Claire and the French-Cambodian Elektra, continuing an unfortunate media trend wherein white women are seen as the 'happily ever after' instead of non-white ones.

The article also takes issue with the way Karen has quite a few men who shield her from harm compared to Elektra and Claire, who only ever have Matt or have no one at all. Or that whenever Karen does get injured, [[BeautyIsNeverTarnished the injuries disappear to avoid tarnishing her appearance]], but the same is not said for Claire or Elektra.

** The Season 9 episode, "Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra," got a lot of criticism on the YellowFace. Carter Bays admits that they were trying to pay homage to the Kung Fu movies that they grew up on and [[apologized to people who were offended http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/how-i-met-your-mother-671349]].

* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''
** Throughout the series, some feel there is a running theme that [[AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits the only success for a woman is raising a family]], leading to some claiming the show made female characters into [[http://www.hypable.com/2014/04/01/how-i-met-your-mother-series-finale/ into nothing more than just a walking uterus]]. There's also talk of how it reduces the value of the gang's friendship and every message about how important it is by having them split up, essentially saying that his friends had no value outside of [[spoiler: how they got Ted and Robin together.]]
** [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-pieces-relationship-advice-movies-need-to-stop-giving_p2/ As noted here,]] the idea that a good relationship means one where you don't have to change yourself at all for your lover creates a very uncomfortable air of entitlement and a ''horribly'' inaccurate picture of what a real relationship actually takes.

*** Robin: [[spoiler:She gets the career she always dreamed of, but it destroys her marriage, isolates her from her friends and makes her regret not loving Ted back. However, the ending tells us she finds happiness when Ted "saves her" from her loneliness.]]
*** Ted: [[spoiler:After eight seasons of build-up (plus one of CharacterDevelopment), the Mother is reduced to a means for Ted to have children. After [[DeathOfTheHypotenuse her death]], Ted and Robin get together, implying that he can ''never'' get over his feelings for her, which raises the question of whether Tracy really was the true love of his life.]] [[http://jezebel.com/people-are-so-so-pissed-about-the-how-i-met-your-mothe-1555886544]]
*** Barney: [[spoiler: Barney goes back to his womanizer ways after the divorce, even though that was NOT what destroyed his marriage. And after everything that happened, what changes him for good is having a daughter out of a one-night stand (a one night stand who never even gets a name or shows up ever again, implying she doesn't matter). As children was precisely the one thing that Robin COULDN'T give him, it's seen as devaluing her as a character even more. Not only that, but breaking him up with Robin implying that all of the hard work and effort he put into the marriage was completely worthless because she was "supposed" to be with Ted.]]
*** Lily: [[spoiler:After spending one year in Italy, the ending doesn't show her doing anything else with her life but giving birth to a third child, supporting Marshall's career, and finally not having any more marriage problems. Although that was probably due to time constraints in an already packed finale, some people saw it as a case of StayInTheKitchen.]]
*** The Mother; [[spoiler:she gives Ted his dream, with the domestic life and children he always wanted--children being the thing Robin could never give him. Then she dies, Ted tells the kids about how he could never get over Robin, and runs off to live HappilyEverAfter with her, basically making it seem that The Mother was only there to pop out kids for him and a standby until Robin was available again. Some reviews have straight-out dubbed The Mother, 'The Uterus'.]]

This is a highly subjective AudienceReaction, and since in the past this page has became bogged down in arguments about some tropers believing that concerns about such matters simply relate to PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad, and other tropers -- seeing the entire "political correctness" argument as a plausibly deniable defense of racism -- vehemently oppose it, '''no example may be added in this article or on a work article, without proof that it's not just one person's thinking'''.

*** [[http://thenerdsofcolor.org/2016/04/03/not-your-asian-ninja-how-the-marvel-cinematic-universe-keeps-failing-asian-americans/ The second season also came under fire]]. The need to equate the Asian gangs and ninjas comes across as a bit racist, as does the fact that the one decent person tied to The Hand is... a white guy. Who is being forced to help them against his will. In fact, ''Series/IronFist2017'' [[AuthorsSavingThrow takes steps to make]] [[EqualOpportunityEvil the Hand a lot more ethnically diverse]]: Madame Gao uses Caucasian, Mestizo Latina and African-American women to market her heroin; Radovan's jailer, King, seems of Middle-Eastern origin; Danny gets pitched against a pair of Slav brothers; Bakuto's camp includes black and Hispanic kids, etc.
