Revolta da Chibata, or Revolt of the Whip, occurred in Brazil in 1910. This mutiny was in response to the regular use of the whip to discipline sailors. What sparked the rebellion was when the sailor Marcelino Rodrigues Menezes received 250 lashes. This seems like a completely reasonable cause for mutiny, on the upside this was also the last time that the Brazilian Navy used a whip.
