Most Shocking Moments In 2019

2019 has had a shocking start, so here are some things that shocked the world.

The Top Ten

Christchurch Mosque Shootings

This proves that deadly shootings can happen anywhere and not just the USA, take that European stereotypes

There were also bombings in Sri Lanka. See? America isn't full of shootings and bombings.

This is a really shocking moment. About 50 people lost their lives in the attack. I've uploaded the image of the shooter above. Currently a lot of irrelevant items are above this on the list. Please vote this item up and bring it to the top.

This needs to be much higher, Seriously why is stuff that isn't important like A Kardashian accusing a rapper of cheating and Certain movies being released higher than this, What is wrong with you guys. 49 people died in this attack. RIP to those 49 People who died in this shooting in New Zealand. - B1ueNew

The saddest thing was that one of the victims was a 3 year old

Sri Lanka Church and Hotel Bombings

Sri Lanka is on the recovery of the shocking killings that probably are going to kill more than 275 people. The amount of injured people will mean some will get eventually fatal injuries. ISIS has claimed it was them who were responsible for it, with it being a possibility. This is showing just because they lost a lot of territory (all of it) does not mean they will not carry out attacks. It means those fighters will return, lie and cause, do and plan things like this. The way that the police handled it, and the fact it could have been prevented really is appalling work. The Prime Minister himself wasn't warned. They obviously need to get better workers. The attacks themselves were based on religion and to prevent Christian celebration, with Religious motivations being alarming.

And no BBC News, I don't care about how many Britons were killed, it's just the country that were born in, there's no need for such emphasis and obsession with it.

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.

Wow, when I first heard about this on the news, I was in complete shock. It was just horrible for me to see that more than 200 people were killed in this. Jesus Christ, this has got to be the closest Sri Lanka has even gotten to having 9/11. Not only one or two churches were bombed, there were THREE! Not only one hotel was bombed, there were TWO! Hypothetically, It would've been much worse if the KKK chose to hijack planes and crash them into Sri Lankan airports as well to result in more deaths. - JoeBoi

No, these terrorists are worse than the KKK because they attack any type of person (note: I'm not defending the KKK though) - Kuro

This should be ranked as number one because of the many lives that were lost in this horrific event. There was a huge attendance of churchgoers practising their faith until some dickhead who was a terrorist decided to blow up the place of worship which was a church, filled with more than 200 people. I can understand why the Christchurch Attacks were horrific because it was motivated by Fascism and Intolerance. Muslims don't deserve to be ridiculed or bullied so as Christians. A woman lost her wife and two kids in this tragedy as well as a husband who lost his love of life. Islamic Radicalisation has to stop. Christians are among the most persecuted group in the world given the fact that it's a popular belief, followed by Islam. Deaths of Christians are a good reason why religion is losing its beloved members.

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

This just proves that no matter what you do, SJWs will always find something to "criticize".

Oh my gosh, race seriously doesn't matter, so how is this even shocking? Like, dude, come on.

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.

Geez dudes, is that really matter?

Fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral

Centuries of history, annihilated in hours. Think of how long this thing has been standing. The Cathedral was completed in 1345. It has been around World Wars, Kings and Queens, terror attacks, disasters, inventions. It was a monument to history, human achievement and art, and resistance, and then it just burnt to a crisp. Sure, nobody died, but it just crushed my soul to see so much burn away in just one day.

At least the whole building was not destroyed. It is still sad though. Prayers for Paris.

This was way more shocking than 3 and 4,really sad this historic building is gone

Hundreds of years worth of history gone in just minutes. This is a massive scar for France.

Donald Trump's Govt. Shutdown

The most ridiculous part of this is he couldn't even get his wall with the house was dominantly republican, if you can't get your wall with everything in your favor what makes Trump think he would be able to throw baby/child offensive to get what he wants
The only thing he is doing is proofing everyone right that he is a terrible President, because a celebrity sized ego isn't good for a President

Too scared in politics is another word for know it isn't good for the people

At least Obama didn't overreact over not getting a stupid wall.

"A shutdown falls on the President's lack of leadership. He can't even control his party and get people together in a room. A shutdown means the President is weak." - Donald Trump

It really depends on the reason and for how long it last, if the shutdown is only happening because the President really wants even though both the Republicans and the Democrats mostly agree is a terrible idea that president is a poor leader. Personally I can't thing of a real reason to shutdown the government though, I'm thinking an imminent threat but if the government is shutdown how could they strategy a plan to deal with that threat as efficiently as possible

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

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.

Real ironic stuff! (What a hypocrite! )

Nothing wrong with it, he is a liberal democrat.

UNC Charlotte Shooting

All my life until now, ever since my adolescence, I've seen shootings everywhere in the United States. Almost anywhere where innocent people are only going about their daily lives, some thoughtless shooter always has to hurt the lives of those people. I've seen it all on the news, but I've never thought it would happen to me. But as of recent times, now it did. I still couldn't believe it. In the late afternoon of April 30th when me and my entire college was preparing for our final exams, a shooter opened fire in a classroom and attempted to harm and take the lives of innocent students all across my campus. If not for the actions of one of the victims, Riley Howell, and the police officers and first responders who acted quickly to keep the situation from escalating, more lives would have been taken. Regardless, one thing stands. My own school and my own community, had now fallen victim to a tragic shooting. I want to let you all know that as long as me and my community live, we will ...more

Can't believe that a TopTenner goes to this college, and a shooting happened right there.

Another awful shooting. 2 killed, & shows hate, disrespect, & fear toward the community of schools & heartlessness toward people. Yet we need to stop the violence.

2 people were killed at the Kennedy building in UNC in the Charlotte campus.

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.

Amazon Rainforest Wildfires

We should get on one of those planes that spray water, and put out the fires.

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.

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

That's horrible! That is going to hurt so many species and our ecosystem!

Virginia Beach Courthouse Shooting

I live just ten miles from the Municipal Center. This was workplace violence in which one apparently-fired employee wanted to enact revenge against those who work in the public utilities department. This is one of those moments when I realize that anything like this could happen close to where I live.

May 31, 2019

12 were killed & 5 were hurt. An employee wanted revenge after getting fired, which just shows hate & disrespect. Not to mention this was a hate crime. Dark day for Virginia.

12 dead, 5 injured in a shooting at the Virginia Beach municipal center.
An employee who got fired got deranged and shot the workers to their death, making it a hate crime.
One of the deadliest shootings of 2019, and definitely the darkest day ever for Virginia Beach.

Tragic moment, but not as bad as the other ones like the bombings of Sri Lanka or Christchurch Mosque Shootings.

The Contenders

Ethiopia Plane Crash

Apparently a submarine guy releasing a terrible version of sicko mode is worst than a plane crash that killed 157 people, why do people always get upset about something that is not even that bad or important?

There were no survivors. All 157 died in the crash & since then, all 737 MAX planes have been grounded.

On March 10, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in Ethiopia, killing all 157 people on board.


2019 Measles Outbreak

The MMR has killed more children than measles.

The MMR has infected millions of children with autism.

The MMR does not give you immunity to measles. It makes you more vulnerable.

Don't take the vaccines.

Vaccinate your kids before this happens.

Dumbass anti vaxxers

This is why anti vaxxers should not be allowed to have kids.

Houston Police Shooting

Don't tell me if this is about Balck Cruelty because I had enough of this s***!

5 police officers were shot in the line of duty.
3 were killed in it.
Just terrible, more shootings going on.
Peace should be restored.

Seriously stuff that isn't as important like an egg picture being liked on Instagram are higher... - B1ueNew

Kathy Griffin calls Basketball's 3 point handsign a new Nazi symbol

OK, so y'know that hand sign is leaving idiots to believe it's a racist sign from 4-Chan. DO YOU SERIOUSLY BELIEVE A BUNCH OF TEENS IN THEIR MOM'S BASEMENT?!?!?

In a latest now-deleted tweet, comedian Kathy Griffin shamed Highschool basketball players for showing the 3 point handsign, and called it the "new Nazi symbol". She apparently doesn't know the difference between a basketball 3 point handsign and the white supremacist hand gesture.

This is ridiculous. Come on, this is why celebrities shouldn't be involved in politics, especially since they confuse things way too much.

What's next, Walt's two finger salute being anti-abortion

Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" Commercial

They're owned by the same company that's owns Tide pods. They deserve the backlash and boycotts.

Boys will be boys but the boys are cringing through this because of that.

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

This is what happens if you feed into those social justice warriors.

Manowar Guitarist (Karl Logan) Arrested for Child Pornography

Karl Logan, the guitarist for the metal band Manowar was arrested for possessing child pornography and was charged with six counts of third-degree exploitation of a minor.

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

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.

This shows that Disney/Bob Iger only cares about money these days Walt Disney is rolling in his grave.

I remember that

Ashley Massaro Passes Away

So young. R.I.P.

She was only 39.

Death of Etika

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

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

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.

I couldn't believe a 12m subscriber streamer would be found DEAD so suddenly.

Pua Magasiva passes away

Very sad. R.I.P.

Boo the Dog's Death

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.

Boo was so sweet. RIP. Dogs should last as long as humans do.

The cutest dog died? No! Boo hoo. Rest In Peace Pup.

It's a Dog they don't last like us Humans

SunTrust Bank Shooting in Sebring Florida

Another shooting. 5 killed in an attack that was apparently an ambush shooting.

5 people were killed in a shooting in SunTrust Bank in Sebring Florida.
This shows you 2019 is still ever bad in shootings.

Russi Taylor Passes Away

The voice of Minne Mouse & Martin Prince from the Simpsons passed away at 75. July is ending tragically. A truly tragic day for Disney. Minnie Mouse is dead. R.I.P.

Alex Salmond, Former First Minister of Scotland, Arrested for Attempted Rape

Indyref2 not looking as strong now

Just stupid.

Henry Pratt Company shooting in Aurora, Illinois

Just what we need? Another mass shooting? Wow, I hope a course for mental illness gets invented.

Truly horrible day for Illinois. 5 killed & shows us how messed up we’ve become.
