* The character of Kevin Webster, who for twenty years has been a fixture of soap opera ''Series/CoronationStreet'', may well go this way, as the actor playing him, Kevin Veill, has been accused of several serious counts of (alleged) child rape. Whichever way his trial goes, the actor has been suspended from the show, and storylines featuring him have fallen into a plot void. It is possible that even if found not guilty of such serious chargers, his reputation has been tainted so badly that he may never return and is finished as an actor. Fortunately, Veill has been cleared of all charges and is returning to the series after a year long absence.

* Even though Music/GaryGlitter was an important and significant artiste in the seventies' glam-rock scene, try finding any radio or TV station that will acknowledge this, after his convictions for child sex abuse. Glitter has effectively been airbrushed out of 1970's music history, and nearly every playing of his crowd anthem ''Rock and Roll Part 2'' in a stadium or arena is always a SuspiciouslySimilarSong so he doesn't get royalties from the original song. His name only lives on as a dubious piece of rhyming slang for "anus". (Work it out)

* This is what happens to those conscripts who fail to complete the Reserve Officer Academy in the Finnish Army. The washouts' names and photos are deleted from the matricles and the course publications, and they are quietly returned to their units as Corporals. This process is known as ''maitojuna'' ("Milk Train") as the early morning trains, on which the washouts are compelled to leave, used to haul milk and other easily perishable victuals. [Needless to say, becoming a washout is considered ''extremely'' shameful, and many conscripts have killed themselves because of the shame.]

* After HYDRA emerges from the shadows in the first season of ''AgentsOfSHIELD'' and Coulson and his team are forced to go into hiding, he has Daisy erase all records of their existence, as she had done for herself before joining up.
** In Season Four, SHIELD has had their reputation rehabilitated and can operate publicly again...but Coulson has to step down as director because he's still [[Film/TheAvengers officially dead]] and dead man can't be the head of official agencies.

* ''ArchieComics'' did this to Dan [=DeCarlo=] after he attempted to sue them over ownership rights to ''JosieAndThePussycats''. They refused to even refer to him in the company's history, even though he contributed much and was someone artists were previously instructed to imitate. Years after he died, [[DueToTheDead they reversed their stance and started openly referring to him in compilations and Best Ofs, and even individual Digest stories (historically almost completely without notice of the original writers and artists) now often carry his name under the title.]]

* UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan has the distinction of having done this to an entire ''society''. You see, the Kwarzem empire made the mistake of violating SacredHospitality and executing the Mongolian messengers sent to him. Khan's response was [[DisproportionateRetribution to burn the entire country to the ground so thoroughly that literally all we know about their history and culture is their name.]]

* On a similar note, when DisneyChannel kicked off their 100 DCOM marathon to commemorate the release of ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting2016'', the press release stated that their first Original Movie was ''Under Wraps'' and not ''Northern Lights'', which was excluded from the marathon altogether. The omission caused fans to question whether ''Northern Lights'' was a real DCOM to the point where TheOtherWiki removed it from their list, despite some [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5exh5m-42U sound]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g61fBB_bnMA evidence]] to the contrary.[[note]]Granted, ''Adventures in Babysitting'' would actually be the 101 DCOM, but thatís besides the point.[[/note]] In their defense, ''Northern Lights'' was much more [[DarkerAndEdgier mature]] than contemporary DCOMs as the network didnít skew exclusively to tweens back then. Since the film was [[OddballInTheSeries a deep character driven drama focusing on mental illness]], including it in the marathon probably would be jarring for Disneyís targeted demographic. Those who are interested will have to resort to [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes difficult means]] to track the film down.
