When Ibn Qadhi Jabal (Student of Ibn Taymiyyah) silenced Taj al Subki with his good manners on his foul mouth.
Ibn Tulun mentioned:
Ibn Qadi al-Jabal had a strong relationship with Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya and Muhammad ibn Abd al-Hadi al-Maqdisi, and he used to discuss issues with them. It was narrated that he met Taj al-Din al-Subki on one occasion, and al-Subki said to him:
يا مولانا لما رأيناكم من بعيد حسبناكم يهودًا»، فقال ابن قاضي الجبل: «ولكنا لما رأيناكم حسبناكم مسلمين»، فندم السبكي على ما قال.
“Maulana, when we saw you from afar, we thought you were a Jew.” Ibn Qadi al-Jabal said: “But when we saw you, we thought you were among the Muslims.” So al-Subki regretted on what he said.

Taj al-din as-Subki ash-Shafiee rahimaullah
Maybe this is one of the reason regardless of his great scholarship scholars criticized him.
1. Izz al Din Kinani (d 819 h).
Dr Bashar Awad said in his comments on Tahdeeb al Kamal (1/21):
وكان السبكي أشعريا جلدا بحيث قال فيه عز الدين الكناني”ت 819″: هو رجل قليل الادب، عديم الانصاف جاهل بأهل السنة ورتبهم”
as-Subki, (The son) was Ashari.., Izz al din al Kinani (819 h) said regarding him: ” he is a man having little manners, lack of scholarly integrity, ignorant of Ahl as-Sunnah and their ranks. (ref: الاعلان للسخاوي: 469 فما بعد، ومعجم الشافعية لابن عبد الهادي، الورقة: 48 47 (الظاهرية)
2. Sakhawi the student of al asqalani.
Imaam As-Sakhaawi attributed him to utter bigotry as he (As-Subki, the son) wrote in his book At-Tabaqaat, ‘Since when did the Hanbalis win a debate?’ As-Sakhaawi commented, “This is very odd and reflects worst type of bigotry!” In fact, As-Subki even criticized his own teacher Ath-Thahabi.

3. Mawsoo‘at Ar-Radd ‘ala Al-Mathaahib Al-Fikriyyah Al-Mu‘aasirah reads,
“As-Subki, the son, did not follow the example of his father; he disparaged and fiercely criticised Ibn Taymiyyah using the most reprehensible language. People criticized him for that; Imaam As-Sakhaawi attributed him to utter bigotry as he (As-Subki, the son) wrote in his book At-Tabaqaat, ‘Since when did the Hanbalis win a debate?’ As-Sakhaawi commented, “This is very odd and reflects worst type of bigotry!” [Islamweb]
