An irony at the time was that, when "Earshot" was pulled from airing, TheWB aired a rerun of the episode "Bad Girls" in it's place. The fact that said episode featured Faith murdering a guy by accident, then nonchalantly telling Buffy that she didn't feel any guilt or remorse, made some people wonder what kind of message the [=WB=] was trying to send kids.
** TheWB also made Creator/JossWhedon edit the final episode of the season, "Graduation Day", to make the school explosion less spectacular, and remove some dialogue from the denouement about how neat it was that they blew up the school. After the changes were made, WB still dithered, right up to nearly the last minute before deciding not to show the episode until later in the summer. They waited so long that [[ShortRunInPeru the episode had already been sent out to stations in Canada that carried the show, and been placed into their broadcast schedule. And because it was a holiday weekend in Canada the people with the authority to take it out of the schedule were "unavailable."]]

* Creator/MichaelMoore's documentary ''Film/BowlingForColumbine'' examines [[AmericanGunPolitics America's obsession with guns and violence]], and suggests that it had played a role in the shooting, pointing out that the [=NRA=] has done little to restrict the purchase of guns and ammunition for less-than-wholesome purposes. However, he does go out of his way to state that guns themselves are not the problem, showcasing how {{Canada|Eh}} has a comparatively low rate of gun violence despite gun ownership rates being almost as high as in the U.S. (As the saying goes, guns don't kill people, people kill people.[[note]]This is not to say, however, that someone with a gun, or even a knife, won't kill another living thing much more efficiently than someone who has no such thing.[[/note]]) The film's general theme is that there are no easy answers for the massacre -- after all, both Harris and Klebold were bowlers, so [[HitlerAteSugar could that not have driven them to kill]]?

* The MadeForTVMovie ''Atomic Train'' wasn't shown in UsefulNotes/{{Denver}} out of apparent sympathy for the Columbine massacre. The movie had absolutely nothing to do with schools, shootings, or anything like it, being about, y'know, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a nuclear train]], albeit one wherein the inevitable wrong-going happens near Denver.

* ''TheBoondockSaints'' wound up seeing its American theatrical release limited to just five theaters partly as a result of the Columbine massacre[[note]]The chief reason, however, was because of PrimaDonnaDirector Troy Duffy's gigantic ego, which led him to burn all his bridges with Miramax, his distributor.[[/note]], causing it to become a DirectToVideo film for all intents and purposes.

* Music/ThirdEyeBlind 's second album "Blue", released in November 1999, almost always has the track Slow Motion's vocal track removed (or at the least removed save for the chorus) due to it clearly discussing various forms of violence as well as drug use. (Most notably the opening line, "Ms. Jones taught me English / But I think I just shot her son"). Despite this, Stephan Jenkins (the band's frontman) wrote this song in 1995, predating the attacks and even their debut album.

'''Music/MarilynManson''': I wouldn't say a single word to them; [[WhamLine I would listen to what they have to say; and that's what no one did]].

* ''Film/TheMatrix'' was released three weeks before the massacre, and was accused of inspiring the shooters due to the "[[BadassLongcoat action hero in a trench coat]]" look the film popularized.



* Music/KMFDM was blamed by some for the massacre, not helped by the fact that one of the shooters, Eric Harris, was a fan of their music and posted the lyrics to some of their songs to his website, and the fact that their album "Adios" was released on the same day as the shooting.
