Not an index, but a TropeTrope: When a trope is either so played out, so stupid, or so racist/sexist/whatever, that seeing it makes some portion of the audience go berserk.

Part of the death cycle for a trope; any trope that qualifies is already at least close to becoming a DiscreditedTrope.

Sometimes this is due to ValuesDissonance [[DeadHorseTrope making a trope obsolete]]. [[UndeadHorseTrope Continuing to use such a trope]] when the underlying morality behind it has been discredited is sure to get some annoyed reactions.
