Most Shocking Moments in 2018Gregory 2018 has had a shocking start, so here are some things that shocked the world.
The Top Ten
...I've been talking about politics and current events for some time now, and I know as someone who's not even 14 yet that it's bad for my mental health. But this hits too close to home.
There have been 18 shootings in America since 2018 started, and we're not even in March. This is the deadliest high school shooting in history, and let's not forget that one of those 18 shootings happened in Winston-Salem, which is DANGEROUSLY close to where I live. And yet, Trump and his NRA-cronies are only making it worse. They're cutting over $25,000,000 from school counseling and mental profiling. Last month, Trump signed a bill deregulating guns based on mental illness. He visited like two victims for 6 minutes and then went STRAIGHT to golfing. He blames the FBI for not taking action and brings up Russia. The shooter was a Trump supporter, and is getting sympathy headlines from news articles alongside the fact that he's trying to bypass the death penalty.
These shootings aren't ...more - WonkeyDude98
My heart goes out to all of those in Florida right now. 17 people were shot dead in this attack, making it just barely worse than Columbine. What makes this worse was that the perpetrator was a rabid white supremacist and extremist who was suspended from roughly seven schools previously, but no one cared about his behaviour despite the tip-offs until he actually performed the act. While gun-control does come into play here, it's more of the fact that no one payed attention to this guy's behaviour before-hand despite the fact that this was a disaster waiting to happen. - Swellow
I live close to this school (not in Parkland, but close), and the past few days have been scary. With tightened security and a friend of mine threatening to bring a weapon in self defense and getting suspended for three weeks, it's hard. My condolences go out to the families who suffered from this shooting. - Absolite
I also live within 15 miles of Parkland, and I was really scared the day of the shooting. - allamassal
School shootings are not some of the worst things everV 41 Comments
As an American, I am officially ashamed..
And people say Trump isn't racist. Don't go using the "mainstream media" excuse here now. The fact that Donald Trump let this slip out of his mouth only finally proves how racist and horrible of a person he is. And I thought him cutting funding for historically black colleges and attempting to ban transgenders from the army already made him as prejudiced and discriminatory as he already was. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Yeah. The sad part is that I'm not even making this stuff up. Just Google it and you'll see that what I say is verifiable by various sources. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
I just saw this today (on this list only) and now I'm thinking "Why is Donald Trump our president?! " - PhoenixAura81
I think trump is overhated, but man this just makes so mad - B1ueNewV 40 Comments
Why everyone should get Flu shots - Metallic_Lore
I got the flu and a cough that lasted a whole month. But it is gone now. Everywhere, there is people with the flu. - AnimeDrawer
Nearly 100 years after the infamous outbreak and it's still one hell of a problem.
Shouldn't be this highV 12 Comments
The worst part is people forgave him. - naFrovivuS
He deserved to be dishonored in an excruciating way even I haven't watched the video but I sense disturbance - Kevinsidis
It's not just that he showed a dead body on video for the public to see, it's much more than that. Him and his friends were told not to take any film or photo of dead bodies they came across, but they did and disrespected that poor victim and his family. They mocked the suicide victim, and made him some kind of side show for them to use for views, which is inhumane.
Imagine being one of the families of the victim. You came across the video that you see of your spouse, sibling, parent, or friend who hanged himself and is in a video of punks laughing their ass off about him.It would crush you to see that someone you were once close to ended up killing himself, and was just treated as a joke.
Also Logan's followers are young kids who watch his videos. They either become terrified from what they've been exposed to, or think that it's okay to do what Logan did. Having a irresponsible role model who doesn't have compassion for the victim is not someone that we want to have ...more
The man is a legitimate psychopath. There is no empathy in him. As he and his waste-of-oxygen friends laugh over the body of a man who took his own life, his raving fanbase ignores common decency. - Sop
Logan paul and ksi are idiots - B1ueNewV 46 Comments
Incompetent & negligent government employee makes worst possible mistake; won't be punished. Tell me again why we want more government employees in charge of more facets of our lives.
Just goes to show how incompetent governments are all over the world. Thought I was gonna get nuked this past weekend. - Zach808
I'm Sure That Was Scary As Hell - JPK
How were people that stupid - iliekpiezV 7 Comments
I can't wait for the Loose Wire in a Bathtub Challenge. - naFrovivuS
First, the cinnamon challenge. And then, the burning and/or eraser challenge. And now, the Tide Pod challenge? What's next? The Stick a Pencil Down Your Throat as Far as You Can Challenge? At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if that challenge did exist. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Yeah you're right because a this point most teens will die of poisoning but hey, I ain't the idiot who created this challenge. - LaST_LiGHT
I can't tell you how STUPID AND BRAINLESS people who do this challenge are! People who do this challenge are going to get themselves KILLED! WHY do people do this, to not be a wuss, to be popular? Well that is just major stupidity and DO NOT EAT TOXIC LAUNDRY DETERGENT! - PhoenixAura81
Next challenge: stand on a barbed wire for the longest you can. - MrCoolCV 35 Comments
Is truly an upsetting and shocking moment. One of the smartest minds in history lost just like that. RIP - CloudInvasion
Even though I'm not agree with him about his beliefs about god and the creator I loved him as great scientist who never gave up and always tried hard and fought his illness god bless his eternal soul
He was a mastermind. Rip Stephen Hawking you will be missed - Randomator
"What if he found the last digit of Pi and the government freaked out? " -My friend - DogmeatAndRexV 8 Comments
Those parents should go to hell - ikerevievs
This is sad. I hope the parents are put in prison for life. - Randomator
That's horrible. The worst part is innocent children were involved.
Absolutely horrid. - SwiftdawnV 6 Comments
I love liberalism. Voting a trump quote over these innocents crying. - TeamRocket747
Yeah, these were really scary. - CloudInvasion
2 suicide bombings occurred, killing at least 38 people and injuring 105. - Gregory
I'm not a huge Slayer fan, but this is not that shocking. And it's honestly kinda douchey for it to be so high on this list considering how most fans don't want certain musicians to retire (they probably want to call it quits after working so hard throughout the years so just let them go. I just wanna point that out there). - DarkMatter1997
Not yet they're doing one last tour. But it might end by 2019. Well the slayer fans will be raining tears when it happens. - Skullkid755
Now that is just being butthurt - 445956
Don’t really care. - MrCoolCV 1 Comment
And this isn't considered as bad as a YouTuber making insensitive jokes. At least Logan Paul isn't the face of a country. - PositronWildhawk
What a monster. - Gregory
It's not like any Trump hater will forgive him if he apologizes. - TristGamer
Do you expect him to apologize?V 10 Comments
Considering this shooting took place so close to a week or two before high school graduation, as a high school senior awaiting graduation, I have to say absolutely no senior, let alone any school student from any grade level, should have to experience a tragedy like this near the end of the school year. As always, I can only say I give my condolences to those who were affected by yet another school shooting this year. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Trump will just pray and do absolutely nothing about it but run his mouth. - railfan99
8 to 10 people have been killed. This is the second major school shooting we've had this year, after Parkland. As if that wasn't enough, someone went to the school with a gun, MAGA hat, and an American flag. Just imagine how traumatized students would feel about that. The only reason this isn't on here is because it just happened. - allamassal
10 dead, 10 injured, another school shooting this year.
This is the 6th deadliest school shooting in U.S. history, and we should help all the people and place involved in this relentless attack.
There’s no way we’ll end gun violence unless we do something serious about it and think about our decisions. - Gregory
This is indeed shocking, and there needs to be a restriction of the 2nd amendment, but not a complete ban on guns, itself. - MrCoolC
Slayer disbanding is higher than this? When will people ever learn? - DarkMatter1997
Probably never. People these days will hate a more recent year just because their favorite celebrity died over a year when millions of lives were lost from war and disease. - MrCoolC
Who cares for shootings
Get this above slayer disbanding, how is a band disbanding above a high school shooting? - BlazingParasol
So Sad - JPKV 1 Comment
Three people have already been killed from these fires. What people need to know is that they should evacuate. Don’t stay, you’re putting your life at risk, and then people will eventually have to save you, while risking their lives. Please evacuate if you are told to do so. - PackFan2005
This one was ridiculous and the accuser was so incredibly hard to believe. It sounded more like an awkward date that ended in awkward sex - Phillip873
I'm so sick of these sexual harassment accusations
Anyone with a brain could already tell how creepy this guy is just by watching a single episode of Parks & Rec. His mannerisms are so gross.
Who is that person - PhoenixAura81V 1 Comment
It's mayhem here in SoCal, there has been fires and mudslides left and right. I remember my school became a shelter for people that lived in the outskirts of my city because there house was so close to the danger - Phillip873
So far 17 people have died and 43 went missing.
Pray for SoCal. - Gregory
My goodness, is there anything right about our society?! - SpectralOwl
Yes one thing Marilyn Manson.
When he's retires humanity will be screwed.
Ever since Logan Paul’s corpse video, the YouTube Community is starting major drama over Logan Paul’s video.
The drama also revolves around Shane Dawson’s video about pedophilia. - Gregory
Please, PLEASE don't tell me sexual harassment is still a thing in 2018.
Hey nurses, 95 year old men that recently lost their wife commonly do this, so ask for male nurses instead of going to the internet. - 445956
At this point feminists are trying desperately to get more men without jobs and replace them with woman they will continue until they rule over us - ikerevievs
HE IS NOT A HARASSER, THIS IS LIKE SAYING SPIELBERG HARRASES PEOPLE BUT THEY ARE BOTH INNOCENT! - Maddox121V 13 Comments
Yay! Maybe people will go on TheTopTens instead!
Thetoptens is a dying site, those who don't delete their accounts this year need to keep it from losing advertisers - TheInsomniac
I only recently got a Facebook, but got banned almost immediately. Wonder why? - NuMetalManiak
Well good, that's more like it - SpectralOwl
Finally, a good shocking moment on the list - AliciaMae
I thought that the Minnesota Miracle was a shocking moment, but whatever. - Nonpointed
Yay! Go eagles!
CongratsV 1 Comment
Boy, is the IOC going to have a lot to say about this! Seriously, they better take all precautions with security if all the athletes and people at the Winter Olympics are going to be safe from the threat of North Korea. Something tells me North Korea participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics won't be much good news to the Winter Olympics and the safety of everyone participating at the games. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
North Korea doing anything fun is indeed quite shocking.
Mainly shocking because he was only 28 years old. - allamassal
This one was completely out of the blue. No one would've ever seen it coming at this day and age. - CloudInvasion
Not that I'm big into conspiracies or anything, but some believe that he was just about to expose elite pedophilia before he was killed
And it seems like everyone forgot the next day outside of SwedenV 3 Comments
It shocked me to hear the rumors about Shane. I really like the guy, so it sucks that all of this is going around. I'm not sure how this started or who started it, but whoever did is most likely a scumbag. - Absolite
Guys...it's Shane Dawson. The guy makes a bunch of weird sexual jokes. Doubt this was done genuinely. - DCfnaf
I don't know who this is, but I'm sure he's a sicko.
Yet all his stupid fangirls defended him. - B1ueNewV 6 Comments
Say goodbye to your childhood and say hello to Trend Central. - CloudInvasion
That was my favorite store when I was younger.
I really wanted to go to that store, but I never did. - PhoenixAura81
Toys were usV 2 Comments
Oops ignore the previous comment I put he deserved that punishment.
Sometimes, the reaction to the tweet is worse than the tweet itself. - Nonpointed
That’s a little overboard, don’t you think?
What's with Trump and the s***hole thing?V 1 Comment
I'm just glad this horrific incident has at least gained some awareness in the form of a Wikipedia page and some news outlets. But like CrimsonShark said, it's a shame this poor victim doesn't get as much awareness of her terrifying encounter with her killer as other victims do. I really hope the Pakistani government will bring this horrid excuse of a human to justice and make him pay dearly for his crime. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
UPDATE: The murderer has been caught. He has been identified as Imran Ali, a serial killer who also killed around 5 other girls in a time span of 2 years. - CrimsonShark
Thank goodness he's been caught. My only hope is that he's truly brought to justice and doesn't cop out with a suicide attempt to escape his well-deserved punishment for his crimes. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Murder is wrong regardless of who it is - ikerevievs
That must have been a terrible life-scarring death - PhoenixAura81V 3 Comments
Finally that dumbass kim jong un is learning not to mess with other countries - Dvafan2
Something previous leaders couldn’t accomplish. Now, let’s turn our attention to Iran, who seems more threatening at the moment. - PackFan2005
Why are both the video and the apology video on the same list. Why are both shocking. What is wrong with the people who add these items. Why do they care so much. Why are questions like these the best questions ever. And why don't any of them end with question marks. - Nonpointed
How is this "shocking"? Of course he was going to apologise, even if it wasn't accepted by the majority of YouTube. - PlanetDeadwing
This is not shocking. Considering all the backlash he received and the desperation for attention Logan has always warranted, he was bound to "apologize" for this. Move this down. - isaaonrtdmtr
His apology was fake, because it is from Logan Paul. - BorisRuleV 6 Comments
The coldest new years eve ever - ikerevievs
It’s so horrible that this caused so many problems for people in America. If you want send all that snow to me, in Scotland. We have had barely any this year. Well, at least where I am that is.
It's the coldest storm to hit the U.S. in 4 years, and caused a huge blizzard throughout the northeast, and many people were stuck inside their homes.
Yet it snowed in Florida and other places that don't usually get snow. - Gregory
Thanks a lot kim jong un - Dvafan2
Hopefully all goes well at the meeting.
This isn't shocking, sadly. I'm positive she has a drug problem as well
This was sad
I know a few people who went to that school and when I heard about this I was MAD! - railfan99
Sick freak. Anyone who repeatedly violates the sexual boundaries of others deserves everything they will eventually get
I can't believe They're still go on about this - s646451
I used to enjoy Bill Cosby. I even grew up watching The Bill Cosby show. But when I watched the news about Bill Cosby raped couple of women, I was disgusted by his actions and stopped watching his show. Even my mother was disgusted by him. Bill Cosby is a sick idiot. - flowergriffon
Wow. Now I am for sure happy that I don't have any apple products.
It affects all devices not just Apple
It literally affects every device with a CPU. It is not just Apple.
It affects every device with a CPU.V 2 Comments
2017 has been one of the worst years for the store industry, hundreds of stores were closed, and Toys R. Us went bankrupt. - Gregory
JCPenney is much better anyway (even though they aren't doing too well themselves)...
Sears Canada closed, and Sears US is next, sadly. - railfan99
Ha nice - FuziionV 1 Comment
How? - Cyri
How was this shocking? If you believed his apology the first time, you are pretty naive, to say the least. - Zach808
This isn't really shocking when you realize it's just another publicity stunt. - Swellow
God damn Logan Paul, you're on the list several times - DogmeatAndRex
Gottverdammt! Now Logan did This?! Are you kidding me?! - BorisRuleV 6 Comments
But you can just right click the image and click "open image in new tab", then you can still have it. - Hotheart123
To prevent copyright infringement. - Gregory
This should be #1. - PerfectImpulseX
This? Out of the shootings, the attacks and the hundreds of deaths from them, this should be #1? - 3DG20

The results were so shocking, I feel bad for all the people who flew there just to see the 2 draw, I even felt bad for the people who paid for a stream - B1ueNew
The biggest bait in modern history, made absolutely everyone tune in and buy tickets just to see literally nothing - Enmanu16
I hate the two so much, I just want KSI to lose so his career ends since he has been popular since like 2013 or 2014, Logan paul has been popular since 2017, - B1ueNew
1 underhated idiot vs 1 overhated idiot - B1ueNewV 1 Comment
That was a surprise to hear, but hey, it was likely to happen sooner or later. - CloudInvasion
It truly took me by shock that after 20 years of being a big part of Nick Animation, Butch Hartman was finally leaving Nickelodeon. In the two decades he's been on the network, his hit shows The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom blessed our childhoods. Adding T.U.F.F. Puppy and Bunsen is a Beast into the mix, Hartman was one of the most prolific animators at Nickelodeon, second only to Klasky-Csupo. While his past and current shows may end, they will never be forgotten. And for what the future holds, it's only just beginning for what endless possibilities there are to come for Hartman. Butch Hartman, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the wonderful shows you've given us on your time at Nickelodeon and may your future endeavors be just as successful. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Horrifying! I'm sick of all these shootings -railfan99
Why is it becoming normal to say the "n" word when the person themselves is not African? I see people in my school say it all the time and they are not African. - AnimeDrawer
I love how when people defend PewDiePie for saying the slur, but when Logan Paul does it, everybody is on his ass. - Mumbizz01
Exactly Just Because PewDiePie Is The Most Popular Thing On YouTube Is Why People Are Defending Him - s646451
Jake Paul is human cancer he is a terrible role model - ikerevievs
Oh my gosh, why is this so high? , why are all of you still taking jake paul and logan paul seriously? , you guys are basically feeding trolls some pizza, I'm tired of people hating on them, even though I hate them too, it's just that KSI and Deji need more hate too, and plus every popular youtuber says the N word now, it's not shocking anymore, Pewdiepie has said, H3 has said it, Idubbbz Has said the hard R many times etc - B1ueNewV 16 Comments
Someone please sketch Trump in a diaper whining about his wall. It's not protection for the country, it's merely a symbol of racism and isolationism. My god, this manchild gives me more reasons to hate him every hour... - WonkeyDude98
It was more than Trump, honestly. Both sides are whiny losers.
Okay Liberalism, show me proof. - TeamRocket747
Its schumer who shut down the gov over a completely unrelated issue - Dvafan2V 1 Comment
Scary and good at same time
You mean... Kim Jong Un? - TheInsomniac
I think it went well
If it goes well, then yay! If it goes bad... well, let’s hope there’s no World War 3.V 1 Comment
Death of many wondrous childhoods. - CloudInvasion
Founder of Toys R. Us
Dead at 94
Now the planned closing is less of a surprise.
R.I.P. - Gregory
I don't know who she was, but I remember my dad was pretty upset the day she died. - Absolite
Incredibly sad and unexpected. The woman had one hell of a voice.
Rest in peace stranger
