Worst Things That Happened In 2016

The Top Ten

1 2016 U.S. Presidential Election

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 - Fortifier

It caused massive divisiveness regardless of what side you were on. Trump supporters all getting lumped in with nazis, and Hillary supporters all getting lumped in with communists. It was awful. Could life be civil again? - ReturnOfScorpio

A guy who can't even control his hair has been given control of the nuclear codes.

2 Shooting in Orlando, Florida

I know right, I saw this on the news. However, I still find 2016 mediocre. - Matress

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

May the people who died rest in piece. :'( - 906389

You guys think that Donald Trump winning and Harambe was worse than SHOOTINGS? - DCfnaf

3 Bastille Day Terrorist Attack In Nice, France

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.

One more victim died later on, putting the death toll to 85

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

4 Donald Trump Elected U.S. President

Don't like him

Really? I mean, he has said some inappropriate things I don't approve of. Donald Trump being a racist misogynist is just a lie told by the media used to manipulate ignorant people and innocents. - FluffyBanana

Disgusting Human Being! A Pivotal moment in how that world now see the United States. They think we have lost our minds. 48% of the US did!

At least he not letting Muslims in usa like justin truedal is in canada

5 2 year old gets attacked by an alligator in Disneyworld

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.

This is really helpful I am writing a paper for school about this. and I am so sorry that this happened I send my condolences.

There was a father, a mother and a 2 year old. They were in the disney castle in the lake. One gator took the 2 year old and KILLED him. Same thing with the dad but with a different gator. The mother was crying. This is why I don't want to go to disney land again.-KyokoKuchisakeSuccubi

I just hate it when things like this happen.

6 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). - Anonymousxcxc

This killed more than the Dallas shooting

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

7 Death of Carrie Fisher

She was Leia from Star Wars. 2016 is the worst enemy. This may be worse than David Bowie's death.

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...

She played one of the greatest female roles ever. Her life was tragic, her death was worst. But her legacy lives on in the greatest movie series of all time.

She was an icon and will never be forgotten.

8 Death of David Bowie

Great singer

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. - Swellow

They kept Bieber and took away bowie my girlfriend is still sad about it - princepretty

9 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.

Annoying Orange Caused This Because He Thinks Violence is Funny.

This event was chaos we just been through the Orlando shooting than this than after few days the attack in nice was going to start 2016 nice attack

This should be in the top 3 the event was caught on tape Orlando nightclub shooting was the deadliest terrorist attack since the September 11 attacks while the 2016 shooting of dallas police officers was the deadliest day for lawinfocement since the September 11 attacks

10 Orlando Shooting Attack

This was horrible

This is already on the list.

The worst mass shooting in recent US history.

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

The Contenders

11 Death of Christina Grimmie

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

We lost an amazing singer and person all because some man was upset he couldn't have her all to himself and most of America just completely ignored her death even happened

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

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

12 Zika Virus Outbreak

I feel so sorry for all those poor people. - Catacorn

Another Virus straight from hell. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

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 and also affects unborn children.

13 Death of Alan Rickman

He was amazing

Alan Rickman was Snape in the Harry Potter movies!

It Should Have Been Annoying Orange

He died shortly after David BOWIE'S death

14 Fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada

This was a bad fire burned lots of houses and buildings, I remember when people had to come to my town and other towns because of the fire - trains45

Really bad fire cost losts of damage their still not 100% built in 2019 since may 3 2016 when that bad fire happened - trains45

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

This was a bad fire, I remember it destroyed lots of stuff in fort mcmurry alberta, they probably still rebuilding, it was also terrifying for people, I remember hearing about the fire a lot when it happend

15 2016 Istanbul Airport Attack

We lost 36 people because of a bombing.

Can't believe it, the airport I was once at in 2014 was attacked, breaks my heart :'( - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

I was just there in 2015. I can't believe this happened

This was worse than the Dallas shooting

16 New Ebola Cases In Africa

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

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

That was 2014. - anonygirl

I have ebola

17 Hurricane Matthew

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

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.

Stupid haiti

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

18 Death of Prince

He was good

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

Bring back Stephen Hawking and Elvis Presley. We give you One Direction and Hillary Clinton. - TeamRocket747

He was a great musician, his music was classic.

Why Prince and not the bad singers?

19 Harambe's Death

Harambe didn't even hurt the boy. He just checked on him. Hell, the boy wouldn't even have fell in if his mother had done a better job with him.

He was trying to keep the child away from the screaming adults and neglectful parent that just dropped her kid into a gorilla enclosure

... Why. WHY you killed that innocent thing! You monster

Get over the dXmn gorilla he was going to end up killing that kid and then people would discriminate gorillas - EliHbk

20 Syrian Hospital Airstrike

Attacking a hospital is a war crime! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

21 Uri Terror Attack

Add it

22 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. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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

2 teenagers decide to play around with fire for the fun of it. What is the result? The burning of thousands of building in Gatlinburg and Piegon Forge.

All the good resorts including the westgate there burned down and it was so terrible. That's where I vacation to every year and it's all gone because some crazy person did this. - AggressiveBlaze

I want to punish those guys to no end for what they did to one of the most beautiful places I've been. - railfan99

23 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. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

24 July 2016 Dhaka Attack

32 2016 Karrada Bombing
33 New Trolls On TheTopTens

This ALWAYS happens EVERY Year, GET OVER IT!

34 Bacha Khan University Attack
35 Death of Debbie Reynolds

This needs to be so much higher, she was more than just carries mom

36 Ending of Gravity Falls

Since I don't have an account, it's a shame I have to vote this just to comment. Its just a T.V. show. Even if spongebob got canceled, I don't think it would be the worst thing to happen. Somebody should remove this from the list because there's no way a kids cartoon getting canceled is more serious from someone DYING from a heart attack.

OH MY GOD. It's just a show. Get over it. Gravity Falls is a great cartoon and all, but hey, does it getting cancelled really belong on a list of the worst things that happened in 2016? Especially since a majority of the list focuses on fatal incidents. Try focusing on actual serious events that happened in 2016 such as the Orlando shooting rather than whining about your favorite show ending. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Stop pity voting this event! We can't do anything about it anymore

They keep on whining about this show. GROW UP!

I agree with this visitor. They should just move on with Gravity Falls getting cancelled rather than trying to stop it. It's the creator's decisions to end it. - Neonco31

37 ISIS Attack in Jakarta, Indonesia
38 Karrada Bombing
39 Muhammad Ali Dies

Better than superman,

This should definitely be on top 10

He was the black superman

Why is he not at the top

40 New YouTube Rules

Most of 2016 sucks. But when the cubs won I was so happy. Only good thing about this cruel year is that the cubs won. I am from Alberta Canada and the fort mcmurry fire was terrible. Hell this year was worse than the start of ww2. Stuff is very crappy. 2015 was a terrible year for me. Worse than 2016 even. 2017 is not that good either. 2017 is also crappy because I heard on the news that a 19 year old got beat with a led pipe and he had broken bones and his eye was damaged and has to be removed. He will probably get a glass eye. The person that started the incident was a police office in Toronto. Shame on the Officer. What the hell gives him the right?

YouTube is screwed up now, the new rules that state "no sexual content or violence" are letting YouTube remove the channels and videos from people, making their careers end, therefore, YouTube will pretty much end that way.

YouTube's slowly and steadily becoming more grating and embarrassing :/... - CrimsonShark

I have a youtube account!

41 September 2016 Kabul Attacks
42 Syrian School Bombing

A school bombing is not as bad as the death of some random gorilla? Piss off!

This is just cruel. And the victims were mostly children... Another cruel war crime. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

43 ISIS Attacks in Iraq and Syria
44 Carrie Fisher Suffers Heart Attack

She's the Princess Leia actress, and she's gonna be the next to die, of a heart attack.

RIP Princess Leia, you were the best movie Princess. May the force be with you. - Catacorn

I can't even comment this without tearing up. - EastZombie

She had a hard life, struggling with drugs and alcohol and her manic de - Cry_For_Carrie_Fisher

45 2016 Nice Truck Attack

Terrorists suck! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

46 Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Clashes
47 Turkish Coup d'État attempt

According to some people, the death of a gorilla is worse than a coup that got innocent people killed. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Turkey is in a mess. It doesn't deserve this. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

FETO (Fetullah Terror Organization) made a coup against Recep Tayyip Erdoğan but it was repelled quickly but Turkey was shook up pretty badly and there were a lot of Martyrs. - Aguythatpeopleignores

The Coup Made By FETO (Fetullah Terror Organisation) or simply known as The Gülen Movement made by Fetullah Gülen. To begin a Theocracy like Tyranny. - Aguythatpeopleignores

48 Death of George Michael

We lost so many people this year, hopefully 2017 will be better. - EastZombie
