There are no immediate negative consequences; people are often not aware, or choose to ignore its severity.

This clip is misleading about the laws of Loshon Hara. The two examples that she gives for wanting to reveal the gossip -- "it's like someone is going to shoot you in the head" and "the boat you're on is a bad boat" -- would actually be PERMITTED to say the loshon hara, in order to save a person from danger.
