* UsefulNotes/McDonalds is obviously not a healthy place to eat often, though the fast food chain has attempted to offer healthy alternatives. Despite this, opponents of the chain will always regard it as the place where everyone gets obese and how there were several lawsuits from people trying to sue because the food made them fat. The lawsuits from people who became obese or burned themselves from drinking hot coffee caused the fast food chain to have [[CaptainObvious nutrition labels telling you how unhealthy their food is and how their coffee is obviously hot]] just to prevent future lawsuits from repeating history. Once again we here see the tired and refuted implication that the McDonald's Coffee incident was an example of a frivolous lawsuit. The woman received third degree burns. She was hospitalized for eight days while she underwent skin grafting, followed by two years of medical treatment and all she wanted was her medical costs covered. She suffered permanent disfigurement after the incident and was partially disabled for two years.

* FoxNews most popular and influential news personality, Series/BillOReilly has dealt with accusations of sexual harassment most of his career, (spanning two decades) and in 2016 went on record defending Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News who, himself, was involved in a major sexual harassment scandal that forced him to resign. Some cases Bill O'Reilly even settled out of court. However, it finally caught up with him when in early 2017 after numerous women began to come out and sue Bill O'Reilly after years of suffering in silence. It caused many huge advertisers to pull their sponsors from his show. In April 2017, after growing protest and more women coming out against him, Fox News fired its most popular news personality, despite ratings for his show being higher than ever. Fox tried to continue the show without him, but they were forced to cancel it for good a few days afterwards.

* Movie and TV actors often find themselves regretting taking part in a particular production or a particular scene, often early in their careers, which comes to define them. In some cases, they spend ''years'' continually defending their decision, claiming (in public, at least) no regrets (for example, Creator/ChloeSevigny agreeing to perform an unsimulated sex act on Vincent Gallo in ''Film/TheBrownBunny'' which she was still defending in interviews a decade later despite having found acclaim with ''TV/BigLove'' and other projects), or openly stating regret, such as Maruschka Detmers with regards to a similar scene to Sevigny's that she did in the mid-1980s for the film ''Devil in the Flesh''. Part of this has to do with the stigma associated with such scenes in the past; with today's move towards more sexual explictness in film and TV the playing field is being leveled for many performers.

%%* Mulroney's immediate successor, Kim Campbell, is known for precisely two things -- being Canada's first (and to date, only) female Prime Minister, and leading the Progressive Conservatives from a huge majority to only having ''two seats'' (neither of which she herself held) after the 1993 election.
%%** Although she didn't commission or write it, she's also known for an election ad which was seen as making fun of her opponent for having cerebral palsy. Needless to say, her opponent, the Rt. Hon Jean Chretien won the election.

* Sir John A Macdonald is remembered for being frequently drunk in Parliament, for being the only Canadian prime minister to be forced to resign for corruption over contracts to build the Canadian Pacific Railway, and for his less than charitable attitudes towards First Nations.

** Subverted by his wife Betty, who was struggling with alcoholism at the time she taped host segments for NBC's broadcast of the Bolshoi production of ''Theatre/TheNutcracker'' and, suffice it to say, looked and acted every bit of it as she stumbled through her segments. While she ended up making an ass out of both herself and NBC, she managed to recover from alcoholism afterwards and left a more respectable legacy as the co-founder and namesake of the Betty Ford Clinic in California.

* Likewise, Creator/FoxNewsChannel will probably always be remembered in Europe for an item after the ''Charlie Hebdo'' murders in which an anti-Muslim speaker was allowed to get away with claiming that European cities were full of Muslim-controlled "no-go areas" similar to Taliban-era Afghanistan, including '''the entire city of Birmingham'''.
