Top 10 Reasons Why 2018 Was a Terrible Year

With the end of 2018 its time to look back at some of the worst moments that made 2018 a terrible year, and pretty much anything can be included on the list.

The Top Ten

School shootings

As much as I'm gonna hate myself to say this, This isn't personally a big deal for me. This is probably because of where I live and that this is an issue which American citizens need to consider and handle (I'm not an American, though a shooting in the UK (Which is rare) is possible).

My advice is to tackle Gun Regulations and Mental Health Services in the United States, considering how school shootings tend to revolve around psychology very heavily and how rampant gun crime is becoming over the years.

Yes. This was a very horrible thing. 2018 was the year that we had one of the worst school shootings since Columbine in 1999. Instead of you all people whining the get guns banned, why don’t we arm teachers instead? Besides, I can’t believe it is easier for mentally ill people to get guns and Trump is not doing anything about it.

Yeah very bad. Florida shooting was the worst mass shooting in 2018, in my opinion.

Does not need to be number 1 school shooting have been happening for years.

The Death of Stephen Hillenburg

I never grew up watching SpongeBob, so unfortunately, Hillenburg doesn't resonate in my childhood at all. Then again, I hardly watched Nickelodeon...

However, I will not deny that he is an influential figure for contemporary animation, and that is great loss indeed. Although I wouldn't necessarily state that his death was among the worst things of 2018. His death isn't the kind that is shocking by the context behind it in my opinion.

Is it just me or were there more celebrities who died this year than usual?

Because he was 1 like stan lee and stefan karl rest in peace he was a great man

This is very sad alexa play lone wolf from halo reach

The Death of Stan Lee

He was a great person and influential and inspiring creator. But he was getting very old. No one can live forever. Still sad of course. At least he lived a very good long life. He was almost 96. RIP Stan. While he may be gone. His legacy and creations will still be here and remembered forever. - B1ueNew

I was heartbroken when I heard the news. When I heard the news, I at first refused to believe it (I heard the news at school), so I looked it up on the internet and found it to be true, and I could feel nothing but anger and grief for the next few days.

The guy who basically created nearly all of the beloved Marvel franchises including but not limited to the X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, and Spiderman and cameo'd in nealry every major Marvel movie.

Okay I understand Steve Hillenburg being so high on the list so why isn't Stan Lee up there with him? The co creator of Marvel deserves to be at least as high

California Wildfires

Should be much higher this caused many injuries, death and people to loose their homes

So a deadly wildfire is better than SJWs, cartoon creators dying, and subjectively bad music?

YouTube rewind was worse according to the creator of this list

It’s even very cruel to animals because they had adapted to living in those forests.

SJWs Continuing to Ruin Everything for Everyone

I don't like SJW's, but saying that they ruin everything is a hyperbole. I get it, you hate the things they say/do (I do, too), but they're not the absolute worst thing about 2018. Plus, there are a bunch of things that aren't ruined. I mean, that's why there's still thing in and out of the internet that's still fine and enjoyable. Overall, what I'm trying to say to you all is to stop whining and exclaiming about SJW's so much and do something else that won't waste your free time. Oh, and anti-SJW's are as bad/annoying, if not worse.

SJW's didn't get "Baby it's Cold Outside" banned. Anyone can listen to it at anytime they want on YouTube. I'm listening to it on YouTube right now as I type this, and there will be no PC police to arrest me.

As far as the Apu 'controversy' goes, I'm pretty sure that The Simpson should be able to handle a bit of criticism of one of its characters. The Apu criticism is nothing more than simple criticism of the Simpsons, and if the Simpsons can't handle criticism, then it has no business remaining on television.

It's time that we get over our hatred of SJW's (if SJW's are even a real thing at this point). In a world where climate change continues apace, where the US government is bombing multiple countries, where Saudi Arabia is literally starving Yemen to death, etc, all the people who spend their lives crying about SJW's should gain a sense perspective and realize that there are much worse things going on in the world.

Let's be fair, the world has become really politicized since the mid 2010s, and this also includes the Right-Wing. SJW's are delusional and misguided, but that doesn't excuse a lot of their actions. Lastly, I don't think its just SJW, its just that people suddenly becoming more political has affected society in a negative way, regardless of their political spectrum.

SJWs are whiny sensitive brats that deserve to get yeeted into a pot of water balloons.

The Awful Music

We get it, stupid oldheads. No offense but if you think a whole year is terrible because of music and only music, you need to get a new brain because your old one is too ignorant. All you "waah I'm born in long generation" kids need to screw off. Why don't you stop being ignorant and actually try to find some good songs, because there are good songs hiding around.

People rely far too much on mainstream. There's loads of 2018 songs and albums that are great, and this includes almost all genres. Dig deep into different genres and see what is being critically well-received.

True, mainstream music used to be good until Justin Bieber released Baby. Since that "song", mainstream music has been a lifeless hellhole.

Can't we just bring back blues and rock and roll... anything would be better than the noise we where being forced to listen to in 2018

The Numerous Celebrity Scandals
Toys R Us Goes Bankrupt

Although we didn't go to Toys R Us that much the last 2-3 years yet it still made me sad and I wish the world and America could understand things better and America really needs to pull itself together. I really wish Amazon didn't takeover because that’s so unfair. We might have another Great Recession or Great Depression

Millions of people's childhoods died the day Toys R Us went bankrupt and closed all its stores.

Yeah this was definitely worse than school shootings (sarcasm)

No, you are wrong. School shootings cause deaths. Now you understand.

All because children today don’t want to buy toys anymore and instead prefer to stare at electronics all day.

YouTube Rewind 2018

Probably the dumbest video to exist but it's not a good reason to hate an entire year.

Yes it sucked but really who even cares about YT rewind is is a dumb video anyway

I was trying to find this. Now put it up there, it sucked.

The worst video in Youtube history came out last year.

The Jamal Khashoggi Case

This isn't really about the fact that this reporter dead trying to reveal the President's corruption, but about how the government poorly hid the fact that they had him killed and still some President still act like it wasn't.

I mean, as much how I feel sad for him and this whole thing, it is equally dumb on Jamal's side to not see that coming, so yeet away bois

Umm let me see HE WAS MURDERED

The Contenders

Alt-Right Movement
Anti-SJWs Have Become More Annoying Than SJWs Themselves
Tide Pod Challenge

Why the hell would people actually eat Tide Pod's it clearly says on the box that your not suppose to eat them as they are a hazard to your health.

One of the worst/stupidest challenges that exist. I'm so glad no one I closely knew got subdued into doing this kind of stuff.

These products are not meant to be eaten. I can’t believe people dared to eat these then end up in the hospital or worse.

Food poisoning

The Death of Stephen Hawking

How is this so low?

The many Tsunamis
WWE's Terrible Booking

WWE made a lot of terrible decisions in 2018 and just to name a few ending Asuka's undefeated streak, Braun Strowman winning the Raw tag team titles with a kid, the Roman and Brock feud continuing, Brock Lesnar winning the Universal Championship again and lets not forget WWE's pay per views in Saudi Arabia.

WWE has done a lot of good things in the last couple years with NXT the Women's Evolution etc, you cares about some terrible bookings, they always have had terrible bookings

Fortnite Controversies

I believe Fortnite is ruining society. People are addicted to the game and won't stop talking about it.

Honestly can we just calm down about this game?

People have had to go to the offspiring of rehab and a concentration camp for playing to much of this game. also,it's dumb. you jump out of a bus,do weird dances,and kill people

I hate Fortnite

Drake "in My Feelings" Challenge

The song was crap, and the challenge was why it was #1 for 10 weeks.

God, I hate the challenge AND the song itself.

Yall hating a whole year because of a song? Grow up.

The Toronto Van Attack
The Arrest of Reuters Journalists in Myanmar
The Death of Stefan Karl Stefansson

He will always be number one. RIP meme legend.

RIP to the #1 boi

The PlayStation Classic Bombs
Comments in YouTube that Says "Anyone 2018?" or "Like This If Your in 2018"

Annoying, but doesn't deserve to be on this list. I mean, does anybody care? I don't think so.

People still do this in 2019.

Yes its annoying

Even in videos like shooting at school or my dog learned a new trick yeah I’m stupid

Stephen Hawking Passes Away

It’s already here

Retail Apocalypse

I feel that in 5 years everything is going to be shut down and we are all going to be very bored and we can't do anything at all if all the malls and stores are going to shut down

I feel that by the 2020’s we were all going to be bored and end up staying at home not being able to get out of the house and everything is going to be lifeless I really hope this isn’t another Great Depression or recession I really miss the 2000’s and early 2010’s because there wasn’t a lot of retail apocalypses back then
