Top 10 Most Cancerous Trends and Memes of the 21st Century

I decided to something different from what I usually do. So here's some trends and memes that are the cancerous.

The Top Ten

1 Rap dance songs

With crap like Watch Me Hit the Quan and Juju on that Beat getting Popular just proves how bad Popular Pop and Rap music is today - christangrant

New rap sucks in general. what happened to good rappers like Tupac, etc. We should of stuck with that - soccerobsessed

Remove 'cancerous' from the title and replace it with 'annoying'. - BorisRule

2 Dab

Everyone in my school does this and it's gotten so annoying. I didn't really like it at first but it's gotten to the point when anyone dabs, I just want to punch them in the face. - wrests

Just because you do a Dab doesn't mean you are cool - christangrant

THE WORST! I saw a kindergartener dabbing yesterday. Man I feel kinda bad for that kid - soccerobsessed

Dabbing is so sad. Fortnite is so sad. Everything in this list is SO FLIPPING SAD

When you really think about this meme is racist. Uganda is an African country and this portrays them as stupid fat ugly beings.

SWAG means secretly we are gay

Swag is just a cringeworthy word - soccerobsessed

The Newcomers

? Baby Shark - Pinkfong

The Contenders

11 Fidget Spinners Fidget Spinners

I am all for people who need them to have them, but when every little kid has one and is acting like they rule the world with it, then it has gone too far. Especially where cheap ones make so much noise (i have only seen videos). Thankfully I am a single adult so don't see them much.

I can't use it it class even though I have autism and adhd because some idiot kids who are pretending they need it mess with it but I can use it in math and it helps me focus better in class than if I didn't use it - Ihateschool

The concept is fine but everyone took this way to far. They're a toy, and not a very advanced toy either. Not sure why kids think they're the "coolest" with these.

For the person that put this on here I will beat you up it’s probably a fnaf hater.
