* Music/JessieJ's ''Who's Laughing Now'' was written in response to those who bullied or put her down when she was younger who wanted to know her once she gained fame. Part of the bridge features these lyrics:
-->''Oh, so you think you know me now\\
Have you forgotten how\\
You would make me feel\\
When you dragged my spirit down?''

* Wrestling/JimCornette was initially just a photographer selling his work at Jarrett family Continental Wrestling Association shows. One day he asked his mother, who also sold merchandise in the area, for more money so he could become a manager, an aspiration that earned him endless mocking from the likes of Bill Dundee and Wrestling/JerryLawler, derision from what wrestlers would give him a chance and lots of jeering from the fans. Laughed out of CWA, Cornette went to Mid-South, found Dennis Condrey and Bobby Eaton, then put together one of the greatest tag teams of all time, Wrestling/TheMidnightExpress, who helped him get back at the fans by antagonizing popular acts like Magnum TA, The Street People, Wrestling/TheLegionOfDoom and, [[ArchEnemy of course]], Wrestling/TheRockNRollExpress. He'd also manage the likes The Grappler, Wrestling/BigVanVader, The Heavenly Bodies and The Head Hunters against former managerial clients who spurned him, lead his [[Wrestling/SmokeyMountainWrestling own promotion]] in an invasion of Wrestling/{{WCW}} and the NWA itself against the WWF, which resulted in the oft overlooked skirt wearing Head Bangers being trust into stardom.

* Eric Young's FaceHeelTurn in Wrestling/{{TNA}} in 2009 is a textbook Who's Laughing Now. Young had a comedy gimmick for much of his run in TNA, and eventually began to perceive himself as the ButtMonkey of the company, especially when he joined the Front Line and dumped many of the comedy aspects of said gimmick. Eric's inability to get title shots and opportunities for whatever reason resulted in him forming the World Elite faction, a group of [[{{Eagleland}} Anti-American]] {{Foreign Wrestling Heel}}s who believe their perceived lack of success and popularity is because they were not born in the United States.

* After The Cabinet were knocked out of the Wrestling/RingOfHonor World Six Man Tag Team Tournament, they attacked The Motor City Machine Guns and 2015 Top Prospect Donovan Dijak, seemingly at random. Kenny King alleged that "The Cabinet" was something the ROH Executives had saddled them with, and furthermore that they had been presented as clowns to the audience but would no longer tolerate being laughed at. They'd instead come to be known as The Rebellion, and it pretty accurately sums up their activities.
