2 Donald Trump's Govt. Shutdown 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 - germshep24

Too scared in politics is another word for know it isn't good for the people - germshep24

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 - germshep24

"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 - PositronWildhawk

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 - germshep24

Ladies and gentlemen... another Liberal list because anything Trump does is worse than Hitler or school shootings.
Damn, rename TheTopTens to TheLiberalTens - TeamRocket747

5 Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" Commercial Gillette

Who knew that a bunch of self-proclaimed "alpha males" would get so whiny at an ad showing that not all men are rapists, misogynists, etc, etc. You know, things that radical feminists assume every man to be. - Gabriola

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 - SirSheep

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

This was just a very confusing commercial, I wasn't sure if it was pro rape or anti-rape - germshep24

7 Kathy Griffin Calls Basketball's 3 point handsign as new Nazi symbol

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. - Joeljohns249

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

What's next, Walt's two finger salute being anti-abortion - Maddox121

Sad - DarkBoi-X

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

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

A YouTube channel named Star Wars Theory released their critically acclaimed fan film, Vader Episode 1: Shards of the Past. Before releasing their film, the channel creators asked for Lucas films for their consent in making the fan-film, which was approved. However after the fan film was released, Disney and its partner company Warner Chappell placed a copyright claim on the fan film and monetized the film themselves and started collecting money from the ad revenue directly.

Eventually, the copyright claim was dropped but still these copyright accusations are making YouTube take a turn for the worse destroying the hard-work of YouTubers.

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

Kylie Jenner was most popular for a while, and now 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? - Gregory

I guess a lot of people like eggs. - Userguy44

Not really shocking, just dumb internet culture in action - Nonpointed

Welcome to our society. - Userguy44

23 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

The whole allegations was false. The voice actor of Balma from Dragon Ball, lied that Vic Sexually Harassed her. Vic is innocent - flowergriffon

24 Christian Bale Thanking Satan During His Award Acceptance Speech (Golden Globes 2019) Christian Bale Thanking Satan During His Award Acceptance Speech (Golden Globes 2019)

This was only shocking because of how much the religious took this so literally and got butt hurt and didn't understand the joke - germshep24

This is one of the less serious ones on this list. During his acceptance speech for his role as Dick Cheney in “Vice”, he thanked Satan for giving him inspiration. However this was said in a jokingly manner without any serious intent.
If you want to see his acceptance speech video, here's the link:- - Joeljohns249

25 UFC Female Fighter (Polyana Viana) Assaults Attempted Male Mugger UFC Female Fighter (Polyana Viana) Assaults Attempted Male Mugger

UFC Straw-weight fighter Polyana Viana stopped a Male Mugger who tried to steal her belongings. The mugger was severely wounded after the altercation & had to be taken to a medical facility before the cops arrested him. This is shocking, but shocking in a good way. As this is the kind of feminism we need. Not the 3rd wave bs that is going on these days. - Joeljohns249

The image I uploaded is a side-by-side photo of both of their faces after the altercation happened. Notice how badly bruised the mugger's face is. - Joeljohns249

When I read this article, it actually made me laugh. This guy deserved it. - SirSheep

26 Alexis Smirnoff Passes Away Alexis Smirnoff Passes Away

28 Netflix (Wii) Shuts Down

Netflix is so stupid these days, they delete good stuff and replace it with bad stuff.
Not to mention they want you to pay for everything. - Gregory

Now the only way to revisit it is by watching the WiiViewr - Maddox121

@Gregory, Technically Netflix weren't the ones to shut this down. It was Nintendo themselves to shut down the services on Wii. - B1ueNew

This is my favorite version of Netflix and seeing it coming to an end makes me sad😢 - s646451

Not shocking - iliekpiez

Not surprising cupcake, not even in the slightest bit. - CaptainMowzker

31 Nancy Pelosi Shown to Be Hypocritical

For those that are saying Nancy Pelosi is a hypocrite because she has a wall around her place, did you ever stop to think about how much different you would live if you were in the public spotlight all the time. If you had to take a stand on an issue knowing that there will be people that don't like it and could very well show their dislike by harassing you at your home with threats or even wanting to put a hit on you. Would you not want security around your property to provide you some peace. - germshep24

Then why are you against the border wall if the reason to build it is to stop the illegals from harassing us? - RawIsgore

Nancy does not want illegals in her yard, but she does want them in your yard.

How is having a wall around her yard equal her not wanting illegals in her yard. This is a public figure who a lot of people wouldn't mind offing to keep her from challenging the President. - germshep24

She needs to lose the Speaker seat - Nonpointed

She is plotting against the wall while at the same time, her house has a 10-ft wall and security. - DoroExploro13

Wow this is what you call being a hypocrite, that is like someone trying to shut down a huge orange juice company that has been putting harmful toxic material in their orange juice and calling them a hypocrite because they like orange juice, it just doesn't correlate. - germshep24

32 SunTrust Bank Shooting in Sebring Florida

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

33 Wii Shop Channel Shuts Down

Nintendo only cares about their new things. Pretty much later after they make something they act like it's nothing at all. Why does Nintendo hate their older stuff so much. - B1ueNew

R.I.P Wii Shop Channel. 2006-2019

34 Michel Legrand Passes Away

3X Oscar film composer who scored The Windmills of your Wind, The Chess Game and the Umbrellas of Cherbourg died at 83, which is rather a young age

35 Jussie Smollett Attacked in Hate Crime in Chicago

A month later, this "attack" has been has been shown to be completely fake, and was staged with paid actors by Smollett himself in order to race bait.


Empire star Jussie Smollett was attacked in a hate crime in Chicago, which is an example of hate toward the LGBT+ Community.
He’s a hit in the community and this shows us we need to stop hating and start respecting more. - Gregory

36 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? - DaWyteNight

37 Death of James Ingram
38 Super Bowl LIII Didn’t Play Sweet Victory by David Glen Eisley from SpongeBob SauarePants

Thankfully, the Dallas Stars fixed that. The Dallas Stars has SpongeBob play Sweet Victory at the American Airlines Center.

Lol - LightningStrike

During the Super Bowl LIII, they were expected to play David Glen’s Sweet Victory from SpongeBob SquarePants, but instead they played Maroon 5 and showed only 5 seconds of SpongeBob without the actual song Sweet Victory.
Thankfully, the Dallas stars played the song at the American Airlines Center, but that didn’t save a tragedy.
Worst super bowl in football history. - Gregory

39 Jake Paul and Ricegum Promote Online Gambling to Their Young Fanbase

I find it funny how in the beginning of last year in January 2018 when Logan Paul showed a dead body in the forest and everyone was making articles and talking about it. And then In January this year. These 2 pieces of garbage promote a website that is basically gambling no one talked about it. Why? - B1ueNew

Seriously this should be higher. These 2 youtubers have young fans and they basically promoted an online gambling site to their fanbase. Ricegum and Jake Paul are just idiots. - B1ueNew

There's nothing wrong with this

40 Cardi B Winning a Grammy for Best Rap Album

43 FaceTime Bug Lets Users Hear Someone Else's iPhones Without Consent

On January 28, FaceTime encountered a bug that lets users’ hear other users’ conversations without consent.
This is rather a serious problem, considering this bug lets you invade others’ privacy and can stalk them, yet may increase the rate of terror attacks and shootings due to hearing other people’s conversations which may be about shootings, prompting one another to follow the plan. - Gregory

44 Man Climbs Off of Vehicle on Space Mountain at Disneyland

45 Mary Poppins Declared Racist Over Chimney Sweep Scene

I don't know where to stand on this - RoseWeasley

I kinda KINDA saw it coming... I mean, it wasn't a racist gag, but I can't blame the feminists, I have to blame MGM Studios/Bob Clampett for making cartoons unifying the gag as racist. - Maddox121

In February, Mary Poppins was officially declared racist by a member of the New York Times due to being covered in charcoal in the chimney and covering herself with charcoal, all of which are being seen by the member as blackface.
We need to stop being so overly sensitive to people’s colors.
A Disney masterpiece gone in the racist trash bin. - Gregory

47 Major Lazer Disbanding Major Lazer Disbanding

I’m so sad! After their last album this year, they will disband!
- TheDuttyGyal

48 Kayla Died at SeaWorld Orlando

They should just shut SeaWorld down since they keep putting whales in captivity.
Captivity keeps them from exercising the right amount, yet they swim 100 miles per day in the ocean, which is 1,500 tank lengths, yet dive 1,000' deep and the tanks are only 35' deep.
Yet they give the whales drugged up fish which fakes them into calming down when there's an energy buildup, leading to more stress.
Whales and dolphins are timid, yet stress is related to death, so is poor health and lack of proper exercise, leading to illnesses (including the “unknown illness” that killed her).
All of which are reasons why they die so young at SeaWorld.

SeaWorld lies to everyone and says things that don't relate to their evil cruel job on the animals. - Gregory

49 Death of Masazo Nonaka

Oldest Man Died!

New Oldest Man is Gustav Gerneth.

RIP Masazo Nonaka

50 Mars Rover Opportunity dies

After 15 years, the Mars rover Opportunity shut down even after clearing from dust storms, the Mission Control didn’t help restore it.
Ending an era of exploration on Mars.

R.I.P. Opportunity. - Gregory
