** Japan is even worse about this. Clapping during a performance is considered quite rude as you are distracting from the show. Live performers such as Cirque Du Soliel were actually coached about this as they were used to boisterous applause after every major trick.

Added DiffLines:

* Once upon a time slurs against the disabled was the go to insult to mock someone. Then ''Film/TropicThunder'' set a record for it and the backlash led to such terms to be labelled discrimination and hate speech and over the years they have virtually disappeared from media, to the point where even adult aimed works would either censor these comments or not use them at all.

* In the film, ''Film/{{Braveheart}}'', Prince Henry Longshanks is portrayed as a being a wimp and unfit to rule England due to his homosexuality and having a male lover. His wife and her advisor hope for his death due to this. When his father kills his lover by throwing him out of a window, it is considered an evil act on the part of the king, but is meant as a just consequence of the prince's way. It is hard to imagine a modern film villainizing the prince in such a way.

* The whole idea of the 80's {{Cowboy Cop}} has come under fire since the 2000's. Back in the 80's rising crime rates and the Reagan era's "rough on crime" rhetoric made actions like beating up suspects for information, excecuting helpless criminals if they were evil enough, disregard for warrant, and all around tons of violence were seen as not just acceptable for police officers and displays of their badassitude, but necessary for combating crime. Because of high profile incidents of PoliceBrutality and shootings of unarmed suspects in the ensuing decades, as well as the revelation that these kind of actions happen disproportionately to racial minorities, characters like DirtyHarry and Film/{{Cobra}} come across as a lot less sympathetic nowadays.

* In ''Film/FoxyBrown'', the titular character repeatedly uses "faggot" as a casual insult. To modern viewers, this would just make her look uneducated.

* The original ''PinkPanther'' films run into this with how Inspector Clouseau speaks of his Chinese manservant, e.g., "Cato, my little yellow friend, I'm home!" (On the other hand, Clouseau ''is'' an arrogant idiot, so this ignorance may well stem from that.)

** Likewise the scene where Chris gets slapped by the teacher. Both modern remakes of the novel leave that part out[[note]]The 2002 TV-film simply has Miss Desjarden push Chris against a locker[[/note]]. These days a teacher hitting a student would be fired on the spot, no matter how rotten the student in question is.

These days a teacher hitting a student would be fired on the spot, no matter how rotten the student in question is. The novel at least has Chris' father attempt to get the teacher fired, while the principal fires back with ''in loco parentis'', the concept being that while the child is at school, the school/administrators are basically a temporary parent, and they will counter-sue Chris on Carrie's behalf (which also would not really fly today).

* In the Soviet Union {{Blackface}} and {{Yellowface}} were not considered racist, and beacuse of that there were more than a few movies with anti-racist messages that had oppressed Black or Asian people played by white Soviet actors. For example, Soviet adaptations of AdventuresOfHuckleberryFinn stressed the racism and evils of slavery, yet nearly all of them had Jim played by a man in blackface.
