Selective outrage is when the media or a group of people becomes completely hysterical over what one person or group of people says or does, but ignores and/or censors when others say or do similar or worse things.
Have you seen the selective outrage of Bernie Sanders supporters who are always complaining about how evil Capitalism is and how fair and equal Socialism is, but they remain blind to see how Socialism is a "too good to be true" system that has drawbacks way worse that its potential benefits, and has failed miserably every time it has been attempted in history, most notably in Venezuela today.
