Media personalities have been caught in the crosshairs of controversy a lot lately.
Most recently, MSNBC anchor Melissa Harris-Perry was put on the hot seat for hosting a segment of her show that included disparaging remarks aimed at one of Mitt Romney's grandchildren.
While the prospect of any significant punishment for Perry seems unlikely, many of her colleagues in the media have not been so lucky.
We've compiled a list of 10 media personalities that were on the receiving end of corporate ire for things they either said or wrote.
Did we leave anyone out? Let us know in the comments.
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the southern family made famous in A&E's popular show "Duck Dynasty," found himself in hot water with the company after he made controversial comments about homosexuality and race that clashed with A&E's views. He briefly landed himself on hiatus from the show on Dec. 18. Due to increasing pressure from fans, Robertson's suspension was rescinded later that month.
Popular southern cook Paula Deen landed in hot water in 2013 after reports came out that she had used racial slurs to describe black employees. Paula's show on the Food Network soon found itself shutdown after the network refused to renew her contract amidst a media frenzy.
In November of 2013, Alec Baldwin found his new show on MSNBC, "Up Late With Alec Baldwin," cancelled after only five episodes after the actor allegedly used homophobic slurs against a member of the paparazzi.
After Sarah Palin made comments comparing the federal debt to slavery, MSNBC news anchor Martin Bashir made the claim that if anyone deserved an unusually harsh form of slave punishment, it was Palin herself. He resigned on December 4, two days after being suspended by MSNBC.
When, in 2007, nationally syndicated radio personality Don Imus used disparaging racial terminology to describe the Rutgers University female basketball team, the public outcry eventually lead to his suspension from the show, and the eventual cancellation of his program by CBS.
Though she claims she was encouraged to speak her mind by the company, after a string of controversial remarks from O'donnell that included racist stereotypes, ABC announced that Rosie O'donnell would not be staying on until the end of her contract in 2007.
After a string of Fox News appearances where he compared President Barrack Obama to Adolf Hitler, the famous country star's hit song, "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight," was pulled from the beginning of ESPN Monday Night Football as a reprimand. The song had been played at the opening of the program from 1989 to 2011.
Though his show remains on the air, the popular conservative talk show host is no stranger to controversy. He suffered massive corporate backlash from his sponsors in 2012 when he made derogatory comments aimed college student Sandra Fluke, after her testifying about the need for a contraceptive mandate. In the aftermath of the name calling, Rush lost at least 45 major sponsors.
Though they denied it, it is believed that the National Review Online terminated Ann Coulter's weekly column after she refused to make changes to a column she wrote in response to the attacks on 9/11. Among other things, the column called for the U.S to invade Islamic countries, kill their leaders and convert the citizens to Christianity.
Though his HBO show "Real Time With Bill Maher" has been on the air for over a decade now, the liberal talk show host has also had his own encounter with corporate censorship.
In 2002 Bill Maher commented on his ABC show "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher," that the 9/11 hijackers were not cowards. Coming shortly after the attacks that left the country in shock, ABC quickly took action against the host for those and other remarks, and cancelled his show mid-season in 2002.
