* The planned TacticalShooter ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Days_in_Fallujah Six Days in Fallujah]]'', based on the Second Battle of Fallujah during the Iraq War, was cancelled in 2009 after immense backlash saying it was TooSoon and trivialized the horrors people experienced. This was despite the fact that marines from Fallujah ''asked'' developer Atomic Games to make a game based on their experiences, and the developers interviewed over 70 U.S. Marines, Iraqi civilians and insurgents, war historians, and senior military officials so they could accurately portray the psychological complexities of the battle.

* Discussed in [[WebVideo/SarahZ]]'s video, ''Double Standards and Diverse Media'' which opens by explaining a story on Amelie Wen Zhao and how her planned trilogy of books as part of a series called "Blood Heir" was canceled due to heavy criticism of the first book's content on slavery (which could be interpreted as offensive by some people).

Director Creator/MNightShyamalan is Indian and even gave himself a CreatorCameo as a Fire Nation {{mook}}.

** Some rather strong detractors of the show have accused the show's creator, Rebecca Sugar, of being a Nazi sympathizer for having [[spoiler:[[ANaziByAnyOtherName the Diamonds]] make a HeelFaceTurn after Steven manages to get through to them]], viewing this plot development as a BrokenAesop. This is ignoring that Rebecca is Jewish and her family are Holocaust survivors, and that perhaps because of that is why the show emphasizes RousseauWasRight as its message.
