* Occurred during the summer of 2009, with a bit of NoFourthWall thrown in. Maria Kanellis had just started up a romantic relationship with Wrestling/DolphZiggler, who was still quite new in Wrestling/{{WWE}} and was currently challenging ReyMysterio for the Intercontinental Championship. Maria's friend Melina Perez tried to warn Maria that Dolph was a very bad person and that Maria shouldn't be getting mixed up with him, which led Maria to respond that how Dolph acted in the ring was just {{Kayfabe}} and to fire back with this trope. Melina was eventually proved right, of course, but we never got to see what the consequences of this were for Maria, since [[AbortedArc she suddenly took time off from WWE almost as soon as the story began and didn't pick up with it when she returned a few months later]].

This trope can be weakly justified provided that the friend doesn't have any evidence to support their claims, but oftentimes they will have, if not outright evidence, at least a fairly well-reasoned argument that You're Just Jealous just brushes off.

* Popular religious figures of all sorts whose doctrine is seen even by the masses as flat-out erroneous will have their fans pull out the jealousy card on the critics, saying "look how many people who got saved because of their ministry" or something to that effect. Even worse, in the case of Christian televangelists like Word Of Faith and "[[ScamReligion prosperity gospel]]" teachers on {{Creator/TBN}} and Creator/{{Daystar}}, critics are often accused of being "[[TheHeretic heresy hunters]]" with "[[DemonicPossession Jezebel spirits]]" that are "[[HolyIsNotSafe touching the Lord's anointed]]" and "[[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu blaspheming]]" or "quenching the Holy Spirit" if the religious figure's teachings are accompanied by miraculous healings of a dubious nature that goes against the [[Literature/TheBible Scriptures]], even if [[AsTheGoodBookSays they use Scripture]] [[QuoteMine erroneously as their defense]]. Some of the big-name preachers have even gotten as far as actually pronouncing death threats and curses on their opponents during their broadcasts.

* The [[WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster Toaster]] claims that this was the Air conditioner's motivation on why he is backtalking their owner, since he spent more time with the other machines. He denied it first but when Kirby says "'Cause you're stuck in the wall", the air conditioner can't take it, and, in a sudden moment of released repressed rage, exploded.
