** The abrupt firing of many of the site's most popular writers in late 2017, which has led many readers to boycott the site altogether.

** From the description of [[http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/4-awesome-marvel-movie-scenes-youll-never-see-and-why/ 4 Awesome Marvel Movie Scenes You'll Never See (And Why)]]: "Sadly, a Spider-Man/Avengers team-up is just one of many things we can pretty much guarantee that you will never, ever see in a Marvel movie ... at least not in your own lifetime." Cue the announcement less than a year later, that Spider-Man was indeed going to join the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse. From the same article, it also says that other Avengers wouldn't appear in the individual movies of one Avenger, and that we'll never get a Deadpool movie. We would eventually get ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'', a Captain America movie with not one but ''two'' teams of Avengers, and ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'' and ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' featuring Iron Man and the Hulk respectively having large roles alongside the titular heroes, and [[Film/Deadpool2016 the Deadpool movie]] did indeed happen, and became a massive success (bigger than any of the ''X-Men'' films). Finally, as if to prove that fate has a funny sense of humor, the X-Men will finally be joining the MCU after Disney's $52 billion acquisition of Fox. This means that virtually everything in that article was proven ''dead wrong''.

** [[http://www.cracked.com/photoplasty_1016_21-photos-that-shatter-your-image-famous-things/ 21 Photos that shatter your image of famous things.]] turned out to be a Photoplasty where ''every single entry'' was by [=AuntieMeme=]. Many were angry because the photoplasty implied that [=AuntieMeme=] was the best image manipulator ever and didn't bother to give other people a chance, as well as recycling images from previous Cracked articles, but more were angry about David Wong's [[http://www.cracked.com/forums/topic/180084/photoplasty-article-83014 response]] to the feedback about it, especially since the complaint was written in a noticeably respectful, well-written manner. (For the response, it's the third and final post.) Since then, there have been [=AuntieMeme=] plasties every week, getting even more backlash with each one. Even people that don't mind the fact the plasties are by one person, but fed up with the fact they say "By Cracked Readers" and think they deserve to know what the plasty is before they click it. Making matters worse are Photoplatsies that have entries from Cracked readers and [=AuntieMeme=] at the same time, despite the fact that she gets entire Photoplatsies to herself once a week and is paid for it.

** The final episode of ''Obsessive Pop Culture Disorder'' ends with its usual CouchGag of a humorous fake preview of the content of the next episode, in this case, an episode about the show getting a sponsorship and how that would be a great idea for any large corporation. Turns out that would've been incredibly useful since in a few days Daniel would be unceremoniously laid off, along with almost all of the creators of video content.

**[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8z_HUA86E4 How Companies Really Do Corporate Layoffs]]. Sixteen months after this was published, Cracked itself suffered this, and everyone featured in that video is gone.

** On July 24, 2017, ''WebVideo/AfterHours'' introduces a new crew, but make it ''incredibly'' clear that the original crew will be around and doing just as many videos. Many jokes were made about how the crew will still be coming to the diner, forever, continuing their discussions. Except in two months, Soren Bowie announced that he's leaving Cracked, and in December, the rest of the original crew was laid off without any warning.

** DependingOnTheWriter really, given that the site has so many writers, but usual subjects include teenagers, {{hipster}}s, [[CanadaEh Canadians]], the song "[[WeDidntStartTheBillyJoelParodies We Didn't Start the Fire]]" (Music/BillyJoel himself rarely is a target, however), or Music/PhilCollins. It's pretty widely accepted that most of these are just running gags, and not really meant to offend anyone (except maybe hipsters).

** In the 2012 article of the "[[http://www.cracked.com/article_19979_5-old-childrens-cartoons-way-darker-than-most-horror-movies_p2.html 5 Old Children's Cartoons Way Darker Than Horror Movies]]", ''WesternAnimation/SwingYouSinners'' was #1 on the list for this reason: "Officially, LSD was first produced in 1938. We say "officially" because this cartoon says it's from 1930, [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOndrugs and there's no way it was created without massive doses of acid being pumped into everyone involved]]." Five years after this article, we have ''VideoGame/{{Cuphead}}'', which is heavily modeled on ''Swing, You Sinners!'' and the other works of Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation while combining them with the ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'' franchises (the CreditsGag even said that the game was set in 1930, which was the exact year that ''Swing, You Sinners!'' came out in TheGreatDepression!).
