Although sometimes a writer will pull it off, it more often leaves people with the completely wrong impression.
This trope isn't about writers fumbling the treatment of some relationship they to put in canon—making it more sympathetic or less sympathetic than they intended (in nine times out of ten, the trope you get in that case is Fan-Preferred Couple).
This is about a writer fumbling their treatment of something that wasn't supposed to be a relationship at all, so fans look at it and go "huh, seems like there's something there." Perhaps they accidentally made the protagonist and antagonist a bit too chummy, or put too much Belligerent Sexual Tension into Sibling Rivalry, or even slipped off the tightrope of Heterosexual Life-Partners.
Regardless of how it happened, they managed to pull off a Relationship Writing Fumble and now the writers are stuck dealing with the consequences.
