The only things I can think of is the Cease and Desist against Jan Animations, as well as one of the bigger members of the fandom having their entire YouTube channel removed without any warning whatsoever.
Sounds like it was pretty justified for the fandom to get annoyed about, Jan animations probably didn't know any better and it was only through being popular that Hasbro took action, if what kisame said is true, it wouldn't take that much effort to add in a copyright disclaimer into the video if that is what is required to make everything ok. And removing a large youtube channel with not much reason was a dick move, not unless there is more to that story I don't know about, but off the bat of it, it just sounds like people trying to take down something they don't like.
But I wouldn't have thought it would have been those two events, I seem to remember there being a bit of a shitstorm over the Savederpy campaign and there being some arguements over people selling Plushie dolls of the show for money. That and some people being harassed by the fans.
