* Twitch streamer [=DrDisrespect=] was suspended from Twitch and had his [[UsefulNotes/ElectronicEntertainmentExpo E3]] pass revoked after he had himself filmed entering and using one of the public restrooms at E3 2019 on at least three occasions, with several other unwitting attendees caught on camera. This broke the Twitch anti-harassment policy against recording people against their will; Twitch community guidelines that forbid streaming from a private space without permission; and Twitch policy against streaming illegal acts, as it violated [[https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?sectionNum=647.&lawCode=PEN California Penal Code 647(j)]], under which it is illegal to view the interior of a restroom with a camera. Although he later returned to Twitch one month after the E3 debacle, it's unlikely that he'll be invited to another public event and the scandal damaged his image.

* [=YouTuber=] Matt Jarbo, known as [=MundaneMatt=]'s career took a serious hit on August 2018 when he got exposed on a livestream for false flagging and abusing the [=YouTube=] report feature against videos that criticised or made fun of him. What made it egregious was how he had gone to the livestream specifically to clear his name from the accusations and for an hour he vehemently denied any wrongdoing... [[ArmorPiercingQuestion until he was asked to show his [=YouTube=] report history]]. More than a year later his channel never recovered and has suffered a continual loss of views and subs ever since.

That banned CG from submitting any further speedrunning attempts of the game for consideration—but CG then started harassing [=GFC_=], going so far as getting a copyright strike on the latter's channel for no apparent reason other than for using 20 seconds of CG's footage to show how he had cheated. Eventually, CG's channel and at least one alternate account was terminated by [=YouTube=], apparently for evading a previous ban—though it certainly didn't help that CG had a habit of ''mooning his viewers on stream'' every time he got a big enough donation, either.

Three months later he posted a 45 minute video titled "You've Been Lied To" in which he announced his intention to continue on the same channel, claiming that he'd always made sure to ask if the people he was sharing photos with were of legal age, and that "cancel culture" was responsible for how big the story got with people willing to simply believe it rather than doing research, though he does admit the power imbalance could be seen as creepy.


* Ben Schoen was initially part of the popular ''Franchise/HarryPotter''-themed podcast ''[=MuggleCast=]'' before he left to do other things, but his online image appears to have been irreversibly tarnished after he [[http://www.dailydot.com/lifestyle/ben-schoen-grace-spelman-mugglecast/ publicly harassed Grace Spelman]], a writer for Website/BuzzFeed that he had befriended in 2006 long before she started writing. He went on to tweet some weird things to her which supposedly asked about her relationship and moved to Facebook upon getting no response, which led to him getting blocked and politely turned down. [[http://nymag.com/thecut/2015/08/mugglecast-rejection.html He promptly started sending her more hateful messages attacking her career]], accusing her of using IHaveBoobsYouMustObey to get followers and readers, and this caused the co-founder of the site Feminspire to report that his behaviour towards her had been similarly abusive. Andrew Sims, creator and host of ''[=MuggleCast=]'', made it very clear that Schoen would never be allowed to return to the podcast and that he was disgusted by what had happened.

* Popular [=YouTuber=] and actress Brooke Houts faced an immediate backlash, as well as an LAPD investigation for animal cruelty, after she accidentally uploaded a raw video which showed her physically abusing and spitting on her dog Sphinx. Her apology, where she offered the weak excuse that she was trying to "training" her dog, didn't help her case. To give you an idea of just how outraged people were by the video, even Creator/LoganPaul (see above) labelled Houts "[[EveryoneHasStandards remarkably grotesque]]" for her actions.
