Top 10 Worst Things that Happened in 2016

The Top Ten
1 2016 U.S. Presidential Election

This, along with the Pulse nightclub shooting, was the only actual bad thing that happened in 2016. Celebrity deaths don't count, pure and simple.

Don't blame Donald Trump for winning; blame Hillary Clinton.

It's obvious that Donald Trump should have never even gotten close to being a potential candidate for the presidency, but to be honest Hillary was the worst choice. We all know she's a pretty horrible person who is willing to do anything for power and the spotlight. So lets be honest with ourselves, would we want a semi-honest semi-idiot in power, or a lying politician who is manipulating the system to her own advantage?

It was obvious through her leaked e-mails, media activity and through her campaign that she was doing everything in her power in order to win. She rigged the primaries so that the Republicans would choose the worst possible candidate, had every major television channel and social media site talk down on Donald Trump, covered up her illness, and focused her entire campaign around talking down Trump.

With all this mind its obvious why America voted for Trump and not Hillary. People are ...more

This election has the potential of being one of the most tragic events in the history of this country. For me it has nothing to with economic policies, diplomacy or any of the stated job duties for the President. It has to do with the fact that we have told our children that it is ok to be a bully, a racist, a sexist and liar. We have elected an individual who suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This is, for me, the great tragedy.

I mean both the candidates sucked. but it was a biggest loser type situation where it was a lose lose-even-more. A president is someone who kids can look up to. From January children are gonna grow up only knowing trump as the US president, never knowing Obama. And I think it's sad that people would vote for someone who is racist, sexist, egotistic, narcissistic etc. Just so they didn't have to vote for a woman...

Tragic

2 Shooting in Orlando, Florida

Islam is not a religion of peace, however, most people would instead approach the Muslims with love and kindness but you wouldn't treat that sort of people well who bombards buildings and killed thousands of
innocent people just for the sake of their religion. Seriously when are we going to wake up! If you support Islam, you're supporting the terrorist attacks, Isis, abusing women and killing of homosexuals.

What a tragedy. So many innocent people were killed for the selfish reasons of a shooter. It was so depressing. Rest In Peace to the amazing people who had their lives taken too early.

In about a second, somebody in the US will start shooting up a public place. It's probably happening now.

I'm from Florida but I'm from Miami so I'm safe but yea it was terrible. I'm glad the survivors are okay. Hope this doesn't happen ever

3 Bastille Day Terrorist Attack In Nice, France

80+ innocent people died, all because someone was bored! How despicable... Glad the police got him, that's what he gets for running over those people out of boredom!

Guys, the deaths of celebrities are sad but they have no reason to be higher than actual terrorist attacks.

I honesty don't like Kim Kardashian but she didn't deserved to be in that situation at all.

A terrorist drove a truck into people, killing 84, in France, in Bastille Day.

4 The Bombing In Brussels, Belgium

I was there when that happened. But the hotel we stayed was far away from the bombings. While we walked down the streets, some teens decided to prank the people in the streets that there was a terrorist there. But luckily they were arrested. I'm also glad we were far away from the bombing.

I feel so bad for the victims and words cannot describe how much my heart goes out to those families. I hope that terrorism ends and the leader of ISIS dies (that leader, whoever it is, deserves it).

What a present for me. It was in my birthday. Screw you, 2016!

5 Death of David Bowie

Wow.

Now, can I just say, 2016 was dreadful.

But this, this, was the worst.

David Bowie was an incredible singer with a huge amount of talent, and then he is killed because the world always kills great people.

We can't even enjoy good music anymore, as we have Justin Bieber. And whilst we do have Twenty One Pilots, no-one, I repeat, NO-ONE, can replace David Bowie.

Goodbye, Moonman.

(Space Oddity starts playing on the radio)

God, I'm starting to tear up, this is just sad!

He was a great musician, it's a major example of good people dying and bad people living on, his music was amazing and unforgettable, now we can't listen to good music anymore because good singers are being replaced by bad people like Justin Bieber when they die.

It's shocking that this year, although not a serious issue, we lost one of the most influential male singers in the world.

This item, should DIE, how was a death of one bad singer worse then an ISIS attack!

6 2 Year Old Gets Attacked by an Alligator in Disney World

I went Disney world in 2008 and went on the same ride with the alligators. I knew those alligators were very hostile. I'm shocked that Disney world isn't being sued for this.

Wow I love gators but there just cold blooded why are they so mean?!? Of course they put gators in an amusement park!?!? Are they drunk someone's gonna die?!?!

There were a lot of bad stuff that happened in 2016 but my cousin dying was the worst, no lie, the little boy was my cousin.

When I heard this, my heart sunk. I mean, a 2 year old?! That's crazy! I love Disney but, who in the world would have a Gator, at DisneyLand?!?!

7 Orlando Shooting Attack

50 gay people were shot dead by some homophobic idiot. At least they consider this as a terrorist attack And not only a massacre.

Uh, although I used to live in Florida, take this off because it's already on the list.

Very sad, especially since this is where I was born.

The worst mass shooting in recent US history.

8 Dallas Police Shooting

I know that we've recently been seeing a lot of cases involving crooked cops abusing their power, but we need to remember that not all police officers are bad. The noble, fair police officers keep our communities safe. Our cities would be much worse off without a police department to protect law-abiding citizens from murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and other dangerous criminals. Those Dallas police officers didn't deserve to be shot. They had nothing to do with the recent shootings of African-American males. They were just doing their jobs. People, please stop acting like all police officers are evil! It's as foolish as believing that all Muslims are terrorists! It's the bad cops that deserve to be hated, not all cops in general.

This was the worst thing to ever happen to police since the 2015 attack on dallas police officers

This was terrible at least it's worst than the Disney gator attack

This was So chaotic that the swat team couldn't take down the guy they had to use a robot

9 Death of Alan Rickman

Alan Rickman was an amazing actor and life without Severus Snape is not life.

Alan Rickman was Snape in the Harry Potter movies!

He was amazing

10 Death of Christina Grimmie

Her death was something that could've been avoided and it just shows how mucked up America's system is.

We lost an important singer, all because some guy shot her.

She was so young, and this could've been avoided by stricter gun laws.

This was awful, it's sad that she got shot while signing autographs.

The Newcomers

? The Angry Birds Go 2.0 Version Replaced the Old One

It ruined everything.

The Contenders
11 Death of Carrie Fisher

Okay, this doesn't mean it was a horrid year. People weren't sad she died, or having empathy for her family and friends, they were just sad they wouldn't get to see her in the future Star Wars movies. When you stop and think about it, that's just selfish. Again, not about her family, or her freinds, or even her, but themselves. They weren't really grieving, they were wallowing in their own self-pity. Pathetic, much?

I accidentally hit "post before.
She had a hard life, struggling with drugs, alcohol, and her manic depression (a.k.a. bipolar disorder). But she had a wonderful life, and had so much fun. In the end I think she was happy, and now her mother with her also. Pray for Carrie and Debbie's family. Especially Billie. She is going through a very hard time right now. She lost her mother and her grandmother within 2 days. Cry for Carrie Fisher, but be happy for her also because now she is in a better place.

PLEASE put this higher! She was an iconic character, Leia from Star Wars, who was such a great actress, and best supporting in Star Wars.

She died of a horrible heart attack so suddenly at 60, and we've learned that even with the force, there's no way it can do everything that's needed.

I thought Han Solo's death was tragic, this might go a notch above his. and certainly David Bowie's.

2016 is the WORST YEAR for celebrities of ALL TIME!

Two-and-a-half months my junior, I have had a fondness fir her for many years. Debbie's death I understand. Carrie's death makes no sense whatsoever. For the first time in decades I shed tears of er the passing of a celebrity. There may be more to come...

12 Zika Virus Outbreak

Zika was one of the deadliest viruses at the time and could even live in sperm making it an STD also so it could travel in basically any form. Also affects unborn children.

Another Virus straight from hell.

13 Hurricane Matthew

Category 4 hurricane that hit the Caribbean, Haiti and caused major flooding.
Killed up to 900 people, 877 in Haiti, and 19 in the US so far.

So sad. It was really powerful. I feel so bad for those people.

Devastating storm hit east coast of U.S flooding Rip everyone who died

14 Fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

So many people lost their homes in that fire. I live a couple hours south of it and it was so big I could see the smoke.

I live in Edmonton, a big city near Fort Mac. Tons of evacuees came to the city and a fifth grader in my school was an evacuee

How is celebrity beef considered worse than a wildfire?

This was a sad fire in 2016, I remember when people came to grande prairie alberta because of the fire, and grande prairie public school District accepted students that were evacuated

15 Death of Prince

Justin "the twit" Bieber was so disrespectful after his death. Heck, even Trump was kind (please don't hate on me, I didn't vote in the election, I'm British).

Give us back Prince, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson. We'll give you the Kardashians, Justin Beiber, and Donald Trump.

Bring back Christina Grimmie in we'll give you Hillbilly Clinton in return!

Prince was Authentic in music, also with David Bowie. So why are the jerks still on, 2016 was bad

16 Harambe's Death

Poor Harambe, he didn't deserve to be killed, if anything, the kid or the parents deserved to be killed. lel, Hitomi killed Sayaka it's so bad wah wah wah I miss my favorite character, just kidding, my favorite magical girls are Madoka and Nagisa, Nagisa because of Comic relief, and Madoka just because I happen to like her as one of my favorite magical girls.
well anyway, going to put my too sense into this for real instead of joking around. Harambe was just a Gorilla, one Gorilla, when you compare the death of one Gorilla to the average amount of people dying everyday, you can probably tell that this isn't really the 2nd worst thing of 2016.

Harambe was just checking out the boy, and he did no harm. I can't believe some idiot would be so stupid and neglectful that they let their child in a gorilla enclosure. And also, why couldn't they have just stunned Harambe instead of killing him?

How dumb do people have to be to think that a gorilla is more important than multiple human lives who weren't even possibly going to hurt anybody, unlike Harambe... How dumb?

Oh come on, his attack is worse than the gay attack?

First, he has no mate.
Second, he is an animal.
Third, he is only ONE animal
Finally, he he is 18, which is old for an animal.

17 Syrian Hospital Airstrike

Attacking a hospital is a war crime!

18 New Ebola Cases In Africa

This is the stupidest list ever. There is no new major Ebola outbreak in Africa and how is the death of a celebrity worse than mass shootings, terrorist attacks and rapidly increasing international turmoil.

Something needs to be done. We need to be more careful when working with sick people.

One day it is declared that de decease has finished, the next there is a new case

19 2016 Istanbul Airport Attack

We lost 36 people because of a bombing.

20 Gatlinburg North Carolina Wildfire

Quite sad. I never thought something like this would happen in my state. I give my thanks to the people of North Carolina who worked hard over the Thanksgiving holiday to contain the wildfires.

It sucks a lot because my family lost our rental cottage there

21 Lahore Suicide Bombing

75 people were killed, 29 of them being children They were all just having fun at a park for Easter, then someone thought it was okay to do a suicide bombing there. How evil. Yet this wasn't all over the news.

22 Uri Terror Attack
23 Bionicle Ended Again
24 July 2016 Dhaka Attack
25 December 10 Istanbul Turkey Bombings

Important and innocent lives were taken.
