* In an episode of ''Series/TheJeffersons'', George seriously has to save face after making [[MalignedMixedMarriage stupid "zebra" jokes]] about his in-laws to a wealthy prospective client, one who is ''also'' one of two inter-racial spouses. (Of course, simply apologizing is something George can't make himself do, so he makes the situation ''far'' worse in his attempts to make better.)

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Epic}}'', Nod and Ronin's mockery of the "Stomper" (MK's scientist father) and the revelation that they've been misleading him for years doesn't go over well with MK. When she points out that she was a Stomper as well, there's a bit of awkwardness.

* In an episode of ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'', Nucky is discussing his plan to [[VoteEarlyVoteOften rig the election]] and his ally Chalky White responds negatively to his saying "We'll have spooks vote" until it's clarified he meant literal dead people, as "spook" was also a racial slur at the time.

* One episode of ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' has Archie invited to speak at a funeral of a co-worker who he, being [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero the kind of guy he is]], had been making anti-Semitic jokes in front of for ''years''. It isn't until the funeral itself that Archie learns the guy is Jewish. Clearly the guy was too polite to ever mention it, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny found the jokes rather funny]], or both. Still, Archie is at a loss for words.

* The episode of ''YesDear'' where Jimmy became a housemate on ''BigBrother'' might qualify here. Although nothing offensive was said, when Jimmy asks the resident [[TwoferTokenMinority black, gay housemate]] his opinion on the attractiveness of a female housemate, he responds with "You know I'm gay, right?". Jimmy attempts to correct himself and restart the conversation by making a remark about one of the men's abs instead.
