Most Shocking Moments in 2018Gregory 2018 has had a shocking start, so here are some things that shocked the world.
The Top Ten
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
I'm honestly at a loss of words right now for this event. Not to mention that this is only one of many tragic events to take place in Florida in recent years of this late decade. I give my condolences to all affected by this high school shooting and I wish the best of peace to those whose lives were taken in this massacre. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Not that big of a deal
There was a school shooting, numerous people lost their lives, but it's not a big deal? - CloudInvasionV 28 Comments
As an American, I am officially ashamed.. - Aragorn98
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
Lets get this past the school shootingV 34 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
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
This video actually came out on the last day of 2017 - zeroclubsboii
This isn’t really shocking. Logan Paul is a heartless monster! - 3DG20V 43 Comments
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.
Why everyone should get Flu shots - Metallic_Lore
I never get a fluV 6 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
Would have been terrifying for anyone caught up in it - LunalaV 4 Comments
While there are lots more moments that are definitely more upsetting and shocking than a single internet user passing, I can understand this user clearly had some place in the hearts of the user on this site, and it is truly an upsetting moment for many users currently on TheTopTens. May he rest in peace.
Man, he was such a good friend with a great personality. This really stinks. - DCfnaf
Rest in peace, brother. - TheRedstoneWiz
The Third? Who was the other besides Disneyanime1234? - SpectralOwlV 4 Comments
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 wait for the Loose Wire in a Bathtub Challenge. - naFrovivuS
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
Coming soon, the toxic waste drinking challenge! - AliciaMaeV 25 Comments
This is sad. I hope the parents are put in prison for life. - Randomator
We're now up to 3 news stories in the last 6 months that have messed me up (the others being Steve Paddock and the 3 80-year-old pedo-brothers from Seattle). This is absolutely horrible.
Those parents should go to hell - ikerevievs
Seriously? Abusive parents have no reason to exist!V 3 Comments
Is truly an upsetting and shocking moment. One of the smartest minds in history lost just like that. RIP - CloudInvasion
He was a mastermind. Rip Stephen Hawking you will be missed - Randomator
Get this to number 1 - coolguy101
R.I.P. Mr.Stephen Hawking - WWEWBMortalKombatFanV 3 Comments
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
This isn’t shocking. When was the last time Donald Trump apologized for something? - 3DG20V 7 Comments
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
Not yet, but they just recently announced that their North American tour is their last.
My chances for being in a Slayer concert are fruitless now :/... - CrimsonShark
My goodness, is there anything right about our society?! - SpectralOwl
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
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
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
She was mad that he did not want to have a relationship with her, and got even.
Please, PLEASE don't tell me sexual harassment is still a thing in 2018. - Aragorn98
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
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
Oh yeah, I totally believe this happened.
These sexual harassment accusations are getting stupider by the minute. Like I’m supposed to believe every popular celebrity/actor/singer is a rapist. - DCfnaf
Yeah, these were really scary. - CloudInvasion
2 suicide bombings occurred, killing at least 38 people and injuring 105. - Gregory
Sometimes, the reaction to the tweet is worse than the tweet itself. - Nonpointed
I thought that the Minnesota Miracle was a shocking moment, but whatever. - Nonpointed
Finally, a good shocking moment on the list - AliciaMae
Yay! Go eagles! - lovefrombadlands
Go Eagles! :D
Thanks a lot kim jong un - Dvafan2
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
This surprised me because I really like shane dawson. But he apolgized so at least he did that.
Yet again, someone starts a witch hunt on a youtuber by slicing together a bunch of clips taken out of context. It's just Shane with his edgy humor as usual, people. Now, whether or not he should be joking about this is debatable, but it doesn't make him a pedo. - Zach808V 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
This should be on top, no person deserves this. #PrayForZainab - AnimeDrawerV 2 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
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
Jake Paul is human cancer he is a terrible role model - ikerevievs
I don't curse, but I have to say this is not shocking one bit. I can't tell you how many times I hear the N word being tossed around at my school. - CloudInvasionV 10 Comments
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
Hey, if you're doing something humiliating in public, might as well make some cash with it. - SoldierOfFortune
It's probably fake and even if it wasn't, sorry doesn't cut it. - 3DG20V 3 Comments
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
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
Sears Canada closed, and Sears US is next, sadly. - railfan99
Ha nice - Fuziion
RIP Sears Canada :(
Say goodbye to your childhood and say hello to Trend Central. - CloudInvasion
God. Damn. - Vegeta40049
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
Go damnit logan hunter
This isn’t shocking, it’s Logan Paul - AliciaMaeV 3 Comments
I’m just so sick of these shootings! - railfan99
Well good, that's more like it - SpectralOwl
I’m sure they’ve lost at least one daily user every year though. - 3DG20
I don't know who she was, but I remember my dad was pretty upset the day she died. - Absolite
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
Its schumer who shut down the gov over a completely unrelated issue - Dvafan2
Checks and Balances prevents this from happening lmao - DCfnaf
It happened... and Trump blames Democrats even though the Republicans coerced them into making it happen. - WonkeyDude98
Horrifying! I'm sick of all these shootings -railfan99
This should be 1 - Dvafan2
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
I know right?! BS - LightningBlade
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
