Top 10 Worst Internet Trends


The Top Ten

1 YouTube Poop

They were only good until Vine came along and ruined it with its HIDEOUS face!

How is this #1? YouTube poops are funny

Cs188 is the best

This is good! Except for GoAnimate!

2 Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

Ripping lips is not nice.

It can cause permanent scars and it just plain damages your lips and skin; also must I point out that Kylie Jenner uses lip fillers and injections to achieve her famous lips? I need say no more.

It is really useless, and it does not have a good outcome! One of my friends did this challenge, and the skin above her lip was red and swollen for a couple of months!

Stupidest trend ever, I hate seeing this all over YouTube.

3 Harlem Shake
4 The Word Swag

It stands for "secretly we are gay" which can be homophobic.

Why this word

5 The Dress
6 These Nuts

Deez teeth

One of many examples of dumb vines that became popular - Martinglez

7 Damn Daniel! Damn Daniel is a 2016 viral video. Daniel Lara and his friend, Joshua Holz, who are students at Riverside Polytechnic High School, reached their Internet fame after their video, an edited collection of Snapchat videos, went viral on social media platforms such as YouTube and facebook.

Another dumb vine - Martinglez

Thanks to this stupid meme, I avoid saying "damn" outside of the internet because people will only say the stupid meme. - Swellow

If I hear that again I will kill myself LOL
but really I'm not joking

8 The Word YOLO
9 Dabbing

Dabbing uses now days originally comes from marijuana culture. It was about vaporizing concentrated marijuana (this marijuana doesn't help with seizures, it makes you get very ill later on) usually in a form of wax or hash, by placing it on an extremely hot metal object called a nail and inhailing the vapors produced. The nail is usually heated via blowtorch. Inhailing this harsh and concentrated marijuana often causes one to cry and wipe one's tears away while coughing and passing a bong.

I used to dab. That is my biggest life regret.

Whenever I see someone do this I wanna slice them into 1,000,000 pieces

Keep dabben on dem haters - Jake paul

10 Fidget Spinners

These were popular my last 3 months in school from april to june 2017 - trains45

I have anxiety when it comes to school ( especially tests) so before finals came out, I got an fidget spinner and it helped me focus on studying and got rid of my stress. But after getting it, I saw on the internet whiling doing some research about it people using it on their makeup, making candy out of it, and of course, a diy version. Later, people I know started getting them because they were cool although they didn't have any problems. Soon, everyone had one even if they didn't have problems and I started to see channels on YouTube that didn't have anything to do with toys started using them just to get views.

Fidget spinners.. they are the most relaxing thing

As a stress-reliving toy, it's not a bad thing, it's fine... As a trend, it's annoying... I see these dumb "Fidget Spinner Giveaway" livestreams on YouTube, and YouTubers over-saturate them into clickbait videos... Besides, how did it even become a trend?

The Contenders

11 Water bottle flipping

I remember people doing bottle flipping around sept to dec 2016 or to jan 2017 - trains45

12 Jacob Sartorius's music Rolf Jacob Sartorius (known by his middle name), born October 2, 2002, is an American singer and internet personality, who rose to fame via social media from posting lip-syncing videos on and his Vines (on Vine). In 2016, he released his debut single "Sweatshirt", which reached the Hot 100 more.
13 Tide Pods

What's worse than a cringy or bad internet trend? One that could kill you.

Don’t get me started on this. Do teens already know that Tide Pods are bad to consume? It's a stupid trend that’s just for teens to do sucide. - ThemeParkChasers

14 Fortnite: Battle Royale
15 Harambe "Harambe" (27th May 1999 - 28th May 2016) was the name of a male western lowland gorilla in the Cincinnati Zoo who was shot and killed by a staff member in 2016 due to child negligence, sparking public outrage and later a revered internet meme.

Just, please put this trend out of it's misery.

Sticks out. - Lunala

16 Using "Cancer" as an Insult

Using “gay” “autism” etc is also bad. - Lunala

17 Don't Judge Challenge

The most annoying narccistic people. - Startrill

18 What Does the Fox Say?
19 Planking

This one isn't so bad, but I included it because it actually killed someone. - Martinglez

20 "Smol"

Describing someone or something "smol" as a cute, shortened version of the word "small". Although it's silly, this is a pretty harmless trend in my opinion.

Yiuckk. I cringe when teenage girls use the words “smol” “smol bean” “cinnamon roll” “bae” etc.

It’s so cringeworthy. I don't know why it just is. - Lunala

21 Selfies

I heard of some selfie related injuries from people taking selfies and dangerous spots - trains45

Probably the worst trend everrr. I used to take A LOT when I was 11. Not even going to get started on that - soccerobsessed

22 Then and Now
23 Snapchat Streaks

They're just numbers..

24 Autistic Screeching

Autistic Screeching is a stereotype. Most autistic people are high functioning and normal.

25 The Cinnamon Challenge

That’s extremely dangerous!

Some people died when performing the challenge, actually - RedAce66

26 The Whip
27 1000 Degree Knife Challenge
28 Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Silento

Song officially contaminated by The Emoji Movie. The first time I saw that movie I said "Idiots! " in my head. As I watched it more and more, I get used to it and think of it as a way to ruin the song for everyone. If Gene plays Fortnite or does it's floss dance though, not only would it ruin the game for everyone but ruin the entire Emoji Movie series for me.

Oh my god! Worse than the dab! Do I even need to explain why this is so bad? Don't listen to this song PLEASE IT WILL SCAR YOU FOR LIFE!

29 Cash Me Ousside / Howbow Dah

Pure ass cancer

30 What Are Those

This is the quote I always here since I have a problem tieing my shoes, and instead use Sketchers. But this trend is just a way of bullying someone since one boy makes fun of them. - ThemeParkChasers

31 Rick Rolling
32 Slagging off famous people and their fans.

Aww I miss the days before I had a computer and I could like anything without people saying THEY SUCK.

I used to love playing with it and making it with my younger siblings before it got popular. Now, it’s just overrated and there’s people like Karina Garcia playing with it. Like grow tf up - soccerobsessed

Take a shot for every basic girl withdog filter as her profile - Lunala

I like dank memes

42 Instagram
43 Emojis

Those little, innocent-looking cartoon faces are the epitome of stupidity. Although mostly teenage girls and out-of-touch senior citizens mostly use it (from my experience, at least) it is still a widespread problem and I hope that these stupid faces get pummeled into the ground and fade out of pop culture ASAP.

I don’t see the problem with emojis.

Hate them. They’re overused - soccerobsessed

44 "Cash Me Outside, Howbow Dah!"
45 idubbbz im gay meme

over used

Annoying asf - soccerobsessed

I hate the word “slay.” It is annoying and stupid. - Lunala
