Cryptkeeper's\ Call

In books or movies, any despicable comment made by a character to make the readers dislike them, and to make it okay for the writer to have whatever nasty in the story to bump them off. Happens in Tales From the Crypt all the time.

The ignorant sheriff made his cryptkeeper's call, a comment about how the homeless should all be put in jail - and was immediately eaten by zombies.
