These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Designated Villain: Many of his complaints about prejudice were completely valid ones (see Strawman Has a Point below), but he was still portrayed as the most evil villain in the WWE (his infamous Royal Rumble appearance had both faces and heels working together to eliminate him, much like the typical scenario where good and evil join together to fight a common enemy). In addition, the commentators would always speak of his actions as heelish even if he had a valid reason for whatever it was that he was doing. An example of this would be the time Chris Benoitchallenged him to a match, and he agreed to a match at a later date due to not being properly prepared for one. Benoit responded by attacking Hassan, but he was overpowered by the combined efforts of Hassan and his manager. The commentators painted Hassan and Daivari as being cowardly and underhanded by saying "Benoit came out here to make a man-to-man challenge, and this is what he gets," though Hassan and Daivari only ganged up on Benoit because Benoit had attacked Hassan first.
Harsher in Hindsight: An interesting case. The segment that would later end up ending his career was filmed several days before a similar incident coincidentally occurred in real life, but it aired on the same day just a few hours after said real-life incident.
Memetic Mutation: For a time, a popular fad on YTMND was to insert Hassan's music over various video clips to create the illusion that the people in the clip were being interrupted by Hassan's entrance.
Mis-blamed: He took a lot of backstage from other wrestlers for doing and saying things he was ordered to by Vince McMahon, such as refusing to sell for Sergeant Slaughter or telling Eddie Guerrero he couldn't use the camel clutch to honor his father, the man who invented the move.
Strawman Has a Point: Just look at the comments section on any YouTube video featuring him. There are a lot more people who agree with the things he says than those who disagree. The week after the infamous segment with the Undertaker, Hassan responded to a New York Post article criticizing the segment. Among other things, he points out that the article refers to him and Daivari as terrorists despite not having met them before, and refers to the masked men as "Arabs in ski masks," even though the ski masks would prevent the writer from knowing whether they were Arabs or not.
