* Ginnifer Goodwin was driven off Twitter by rabid ''Series/OnceUponATime'' fans attacking her over her appearance, namely her weight gain in Season 4 - which she filmed after she ''had just given birth''. Sean Maguire also admitted he nearly left Twitter due to constant harassment from co-star (and on-screen girlfriend) Lana Parrilla's EstrogenBrigade.

* ShipToShipCombat, along with ExecutiveMeddling (in several areas), is what convinced ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog'' comic writer Ian Flynn to end any ideas of Sonic and Sally being a couple when the comic was rebooted following Ken Penders's court case with Archie. Flynn just couldn't take the shipper comments anymore. Penders becoming the anti-Christ in the fandom's eyes led to them throwing multiple insults his way, which also didn't go over well with Flynn since he felt it made everyone look bad; he banned any mention of the man on threats of being kicked off Flynn's forum if you abuse it. This also killed a thread on his board talking about the ''Lara-Su Chronicles'' after people went into a panic over a number of tweets over the man leading them to think he was trying to outright kill the Sonic comic. Pender's [[Creator/KenPenders page on TV Tropes]] is also one of the pages that was locked by Tropes admin.

* Fanfiction authors have been known to either remove fanfics or call out people due to {{flame war}}s, ShipToShipCombat, being sent offensive emails about ships the mailer does not like, abusive reviews, or being constantly pestered for updates. As noted below, Worldmaker called a fan who had criticized him.

* The Creator ([[http://www.youtube.com/user/bunchoflemons Haley]]) of ''The Reid Oliver Cartoon Saga'', based on the [[EnsembleDarkHorse popular]] ''Series/AsTheWorldTurns'' character Reid Oliver, stopped making the cartoons shortly after the show ended because she found out someone else was profiting from her work and claiming it as their own. Pretty sad considering [[ApprovalOfGod the actor playing Reid admitted that he had liked the cartoons he had seen.]]

* The number of artists and designers who make fan art, indie games, etc., who have up and quit due to being hassled or stalked by fans could fill an entire page on this site if someone took the time to compile it. They have also had to remove their art due to legal reasons. For example, in August 2015, Konami filed a copyright claim against some ''Franchise/MetalGear'' fan art simply because Creator/HideoKojima retweeted it. As a result, the art was removed.

* Gun control is enforced because of this. Whenever someone commits mass murder, government officials support the idea that restricting the purchase of certain weapons will aid in reducing the number of these incidents.

* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' is a work-in-progress game that its lone developer allows fans to play "debug build" versions. However, [=YandereDev=] has had to repeatedly go out of his way to tell the fanbase, whether in videos or on the blog, not to send him useless emails. In particular, he's complained about pointless suggestions, people volunteering for the game when it's clear they don't have a high-quality portfolio to show him, or giving him vague bug-reports. The reason why it irritates him so much is because it wastes his time when he could be working on the next update. He's even admitted in one video that it's caused him to lash out at people. As a general rule: [=YandereDev=] is only okay with emails if you're a volunteer with a great portfolio and experience, someone with a business inquiry, have a detailed bug report, or want to send him fanwork you've made (since he likes seeing it). Eventually he made a character, [[TheDitz Midori Gurin]], who he uses to satirize fans who waste his time and delay the game for everyone else.
