Top 10 Most Shocking Moments of 2019

2019 has had a shocking start, so here are some things that shocked the world.
The Top Ten
1 Christchurch Mosque Shootings

Despicable. Absolutely appalled by this Islamophobia, and them thinking Jihad is terroism. A refugee who used himself as a human shield should signal refugees are not evil, and this fake news is just to get some extra dough in for the heartless and soulless businessmen. This is appalling and Islamopohobia should be placed on the level of Xenophobia, Homophobia or Transphobia. If I was allowed to use swear words, oh how I would. In addition, he didn't care. He is an appalling excuse for a human being, and that Christchurch is so severely affected makes me more angry, and that it shows a small % do, and those type of people are UKIP supporters.

This was a dark day for Christchurch. A series of shootings occurred at the mosques in Christchurch. I mean we believe in Jesus Christ & we should pray for him and respect him. Terrorism shows no love in religion or Christianity. 51 were killed, including 42 at the Al Noor Mosque, 7 at the Linwood Islamic Centre & 2 at the hospital. Truly sad day for Christchurch all because of man's will to do it & the corruption of our hearts & disrespect toward God.

2 Sri Lanka Church and Hotel Bombings

The Christchurch shooting was motivated by Hate Speech but for the case of the Catholic Church being blown up by a Terrorist, it's motivated by persecution. Yes, 50 people have died in the horrific shooting in a mosque in New Zealand and some were lucky enough to made it out of the ordeal. They were compensated by many Muslim Leaders all over the world and even the Head of State (Queen Elizabeth) has demanded assistance for the victims of the shooting. In the aftermath of the Sri Lanka attacks, no western leader compensated the victims as well as to the families of the 300 deaths. Unfortunately, I hate to see that this Terrorist Attack hasn't been big.

This was TRULY shocking, 253 were KILLED in a series of bombings at Churches and hotels in Sri Lanka.
Yet it happened on Easter Sunday.

This shows you how terrorism has messed up religion because they're trying to target religions, not to mention these religions are Christian, meaning the terrorism shows hate in Christ.
Not to mention they were suicide bombings, which involve suicide, and it was on EASTER!

Oh and it was 8 bombings, which was just unbelievable, and that's an understatement.

Never before has anything this deadly happened in a single moment from a man-made incident in 2019, and this was TRULY a shocking moment.

This was so much worse than the Christchurch mosque shootings or even the 2015 Paris attacks.

3 Donald Trump's Govt. Shutdown

I don't typically like to express a political opinion, especially on sites where opinions are disrespected, but this is getting out of hand. I'm not going to say which way I'd vote, but this shutdown is causing major issues, such as travel delays, government employees quitting or leaving, and it's even prevented an airport from opening to commercial flights (Paine Field, Everett Wa.) If the president is going to throw a fit he should at least make it so that it doesn't affect people's every day lives.

What is even more shocking is the only reason we are in a shutdown right now is all thanks to Fox News, aka the only news channel Trump watches, because it is the only news channel that is supportive of him. They called him a pushover, which affected Trumps huge ego

Due to Donald Trump not being able to agree with the conditions on the "Appropriations Bill", the govt was temporarily shut-down before 2019 even started. As of today, (20-01-2019) the govt is still shutdown affecting the jobs of 800 govt employees.

4 Fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral

I want to take a moment to really say what an impact Notre Dame has had on world culture over the years. It is a symbol of the Middle Ages, Christianity, which is my religion. It has been through almost 900 years of war, including both world wars, and has stood tall and proud. The fact that it was taken down by just a fire after 900 years of standing is heartbreaking in a way. One of the biggest tourist attractions in Paris, a place of worship, a symbol of our past, is burning. It kind of struck me in a way I wouldn't have thought it would. I don't know what the future holds for Notre Dame, but I'd like to think of the impact it made on the world over the last few centuries.

The Notre Dame caught fire on April 15th, causing 900 years of history to be burned down in flames.

It was known that the cause was linked to human error.

Fortunately, not all of the building was destroyed and many bell towers were saved.
Yet many art relics survived too.

It was perhaps the most famous destruction of structure in the history of France, and a tragedy we won't ever forget.

It shocked the world like 9/11 did, and hopefully in the next 5 years, it's rebuilt.

5 2019 Women's March Cancelled for Being "Too White"

The Women's March rally that was supposed to happen in Humboldt County, California was canceled over concerns that it would be consisting of "overwhelmingly white" poplulation. They said that they were "lacking representation from several perspectives in our community & needed more outreach".

Honestly what's the point of Marching in the first place? It's just a waste of time holding signs and marching in the streets instead of doing something productive.

I get that they want to try to represent everybody, but I believe that if it's a women's March, they shouldn't worry about race. Just let them march.

6 2019 Women's March Organizer (Louis Farrakhan) Found to Have Said Misogynistic, Racist, Homophobic and Transphobic Comments

We have anti-semitic nutcases like Louis Farrakhan who want to spread hate across the world from his doctrine. He's not a nice man and he is definitely not a hero at all. He speaks for the radical Muslims and African Americans but he is against White people of course. This man shouldn't exist on this planet and he is the source of indoctrinating others to do bad things in this world.

Hear that people? This year's Women's March Organizer has himself said Misogynistic, Racist, Homophobic and Transphobic comments in the past. Moreover he has also been accused of involving in the assassination of Malcolm X, a prominent member of his own group. And Yet, this year's Women's March Leaders have refused to condemn any of his words.

They just can't get a good leader can they? no wonder they aren't organized.

7 Amazon Rainforest Wildfires

Dumb Brazil...they actually think burning down the Amazon Rainforest will help them? They're gonna sink their economy to an all time low and take the rest of the world with them.

To quote the great DiCaprio,
"(It's) Terrifying to think that the Amazon is the largest rain forest on the planet, creating 20% of the earth's oxygen, basically the lungs of the world, has been on fire and burning for the last 16 days running, with literally NO media coverage whatsoever! Why? "

The Amazon Rainforest has been burning down for weeks, and so little has been done to stop it. Where do we go from here?

8 Boo the Dog's Death

Boo was an adorable dog. I was quite a fan (I have a stuffed animal of Boo as well as a photo book that I don't know where it is). His "brother"/playmate Buddy died in 2016.

Damn the whole world is mourning, so I don't even want to know what the owners must feel I wish them the best of luck.

He was an adorable dog. I even had a photo book of him. His "brother" Buddy died in 2016.

9 Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" Commercial

Okay look I get the message they were trying to send but what pisses me off about this ad the most is how it stereotypes all men as evil beings who don't know how to treat women. Seriously. I already know how to treat women right. Good job creating an ad capitalizing on stereotyping your customer base.

It's clear the commercial was trying to say that "not all men are like this and we need to show it", but the way it came off suggested it was trying to say "most men are like this and other men must stop it". I see where they were going, but boy did they mess up.

I just don't like stereotypes. No single person will truly fir I one comfortably, it's just an image that we're all trying to copy

10 Egg Picture Beats Kylie Jenner as the Record of Most Liked Photo on Instagram

Kylie Jenner was most popular for a while, and then an egg beat her.
This shows us how glued we are to simple things.
I mean this might represent the golden egg that the goose laid from Jack and the Beanstalk, but what if something else simple, like a ball, a big shiny ball, beats the egg?

It is like how the list of music artists that you would like to see perform in the London 2012 on TheTopTens. They are both the most popular and don't deserve to be.

How crazy have we become. A simple little egg gets more like than Kylie Jenner. What has society come to.

11 2019 Measles Outbreak

This is why... you should vaccinate your kids, you idiot anti-vaxxers.

Vaccinate your kids before this happens.

12 Disney Attempts Copyright Claim on a Fan-Film After Giving Consent

Disney only cares about money nowadays & won't make original stuff anymore, but nonsense garbage & copyrighted garbage. They've become copycats & are not entertaining true fans anymore, but milking in the money.

Star Wars Theory is a great YouTube channel. The guy is very passionate and he did an amazing job. Just more proof that big companies like Disney only care about money, even if they have billions already.

When they give you consent when you're asking for and they file you a lawsuit against you, they have a problem.

13 Submarine Man Releases an Awful Remix and Music Video of Sicko Mode

This is not a shocking moment. This was a troll item that was added & spam-voted by a certain user. Please put this item in the dishonorable mentions of your remixes of this list.
EDIT: Another troll put this item #2 on his/her remix & excluded Christchurch Mosque Shootings from their remix. Imagine thinking this is more shocking than the lives of 50 people...stupid retards.
EDIT 2: Now that troll just put Christchurch Shootings in their dishonorable mentions with this troll item (Submarine Man releases...blah blah blah) at #2 on their remix to ruin my list even further.
Imagine trolling at the age of 34, Woah! I'm impressed! (sarcasm)

So, why are we bringing a person with just over 1,000 subs attention?

Who the hell put this here, and who the hell cares?

14 Boosie Badazz's Album, 'Badazz 3.5', Only Sells 300 Copies and Boosie Spazzes Out on Instagram

It's pretty sad when you have the top live in the country on instagram but you can only sell 300 copies of your album.

That's what he gets for overhyping himself and comparing himself to 2Pac.

Is this really shocking?

15 Death of Bob Einstein
16 Lil Uzi Vert Retirement

This came out of the blue. Lil Uzi Vert announced his retirement through an Instagram post. He also claimed that he deleted all of his ongoing projects.

Not a fan, but it's quite sad since he was one of the few tolerable mumble rappers.

Oh damn that sucks. I was waiting for his collaboration with Marilyn Manson.

17 Jussie Smollett Calls Himself the Gay 2Pac

Can we stop comparing ourselves to 2Pac already? First Lil Wayne said he was the "NewPac." Then 2 Chainz called himself 2Pac without a nose ring. Then it was Boosie Badazz naming his album "BooPac" and saying that he was this generation's 2Pac. Now...this? What's next, Mac Miller being called the white 2Pac just because he died at a young age?

It's a shame that he was attacked by those horrible white supremacists.

18 Death of Etika

One of the most horrific days for YouTube in 2019. Etika committed suicide from depression because he was stressed out from having to do YouTube & messed his mental & physical health, putting YouTubers at risk of problems. He not only killed himself, but he also hurt his family & fanbase & their hearts. It shows us depression is a thing we fear because of suicide, which is the worst day to die. He was 29 & had 800,000 subscribers. R.I.P.

Etika dies at 29. Then John Kirby dies at 79. 2019 is NOT a good year for Nintendo when it comes to important people.

Still doesn't feel real. I may just be a fan, but I miss him so much. RIP.

19 First Black Hole Image Photographed

On April 10, scientists have photographed a black hole for the first time ever.

The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) took 2 years to photograph it, but it took over a decade to set up the global system of telescopes around the world.

It's the 1st time we've photographed something we could never see.
Like seeing a silhouette of a person until his/her face is shown.
Like opening a present to see what's inside.

Black holes for ages were mysterious and elusive, until 2019.

Like Mary Poppins says, even the impossible is possible.

2019 is being nicknamed the year of the black hole.

Perhaps the greatest thing we've ever witnessed this year. & a remarkable photography we'll remember forever. Yet Mary Poppins said even the impossible is possible. It took over a decade to set up the constellation of telescopes & 2 years to photograph the image. Biggest day for astronomy in the decade.

Throughout all the shock and terror that we endure, it is nice to see some positive surprises come toward us every once in a while.

20 T-Series Briefly Surpassed PewDiePie for Most Subscribed YouTube Channel

PewDiePie used to be the most popular and most subbed YouTube channel of all time for 6 years.
But recently, T-Series officially beat his record.

At least PewDiePie has better content whereas T-Series is all about random garbage music, which shows us YouTube nowadays relies too much on popularity and money.

PewDiePie has been dethroned.

PewDiePie has been dethroned once & for all, becoming the previous record for most subscribed channel, smashed by this. It became the first channel to get over 100 million subscribers, which no other channel on YouTube's ever gotten at that point. PewDiePie has become irrelevant once & for all.

Pewdiepie makes a song about the congratulations speech.
Instantly gains 100,000 subs.

21 Grumpy Cat Passes Away

First boo now grumpy cat why?!

Say hello to Gabe for me

22 Vic Mignogna is Fired from Rooster Teeth Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

This is more best moment in 2019, but I can't say I wasn't shocked when I first heard sexual harassment allegations of Vic Mignogna earlier in January. Most of me immediately jumped on the bandwagon as people were giving personal accounts of Mignogna's sexually abusive behavior, though I was hoping the situation wasn't as bad as it seemed. Now that we're in February, not only are anime convention goers and fans sharing their personal accounts of Mignogna's true colors, but also professional anime voice actors too. And now that he's been fired from Rooster Teeth, I can safely confirm that Vic Mignogna no longer deserves any respect in the anime industry.

I don't believe it. I'm staying away from anything Dragon ball related until the accuser is fired too.

I call BS, Vic Mignogna being screwed over by people making false accusations with no proof what so ever.

23 Death of Cameron Boyce

This was perhaps the worst day Disney Channel's ever had. A young boy, gone too soon from epilepsy. He had a seizure from it in his sleep & then died. He was known for the playing in the Grown Ups movies, Luke on Jessie & being on Descendants. His death was one of the saddest days in my life & I will never forget that & no one ever will. Disney Channel's lost a legendary hero & he was a pioneer. He was only 20. Yet he didn't turn into a dumb head unlike many stars in the channel nowadays. Disney Channel will never be the same again. Probably the most shocking death in 2019. R.I.P.

Cameron Boyce, known for playing on Jessie and Desendants on Disney Channel Died of an ongoing medical condition at the age of 20.
One of the most shocking deaths in 2019, he died the same age as Tyler Trent.
And it was in the same day as the London bombings 14 years ago and the Dallas police massacre 3 years ago.
This should be high on the list.
R.I.P.

24 Mean Gene Okerlund Passes Away

Really sad. He was part of many wrestling fans' childhoods. He will be missed.

A truly legendary wrestler, died from a fall accident, breaking the millions of hearts of wrestling fans. R.I.P.

25 Cannibal Corpse Guitarist (Pat O'Brien) Arrested for Burglary with Assault and Aggravated Assault on a Cop

Pat O'Brien, the lead guitarist for the death metal band Cannibal Corpse was arrested for breaking into a home, assaulting the owner of the home, attempting burglary & later charging at the Cop with a knife. Later when the cops searched his home, they found thousands of round of ammunitions, with other weapons & 3 unidentified skulls.

I bet he was trying to hammer smash the cop's face. Get it?

Not surprising cupcake, not even in the slightest bit.
