Worst Things That Happened In 2016


The Contenders: Page 2

21 December 10 Istanbul Turkey Bombings

Important and innocent lives were taken.

22 Death of Prince

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

Why Prince and Not Justin Bieber?!

He was a great musician, his music was classic.

This is all the way down here? - JamesBourne

23 Bionicle ended again
24 2016 New York and New Jersey Bombings

I think it's sad how music is higher than this. Shows how careless people are.

I live in NY, oh flip :( - Catacorn

25 ISIS Attacks in Iraq and Syria
26 2016 Cascade Mall Shooting
27 Germany Train Stabbing

A 17 year old stabbed dozens of people on a train in Germany, Terror never ends.

At least the kid got shot and hopefully none of the victims die along with that freak - wariolady

28 Uri Terror Attack V 1 Comment
29 Berlin Attack

I am SO MAD at whoever caused this attack.

30 Death of Debbie Reynolds

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

31 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

37 September 2016 Kabul Attacks
38 Ending of Gravity Falls

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

At least Gravity Falls ending is better than all the atrocities commited that year.

This is One Of The Worst!
Pretty much the top along with terrorist attacks

40 Britain left the EU

When a bunch of shell suit wearing southern bigots can force a government into leaving the largest trading zone on the planet because they don't like immigrants taking jobs they've never bothered trying to get, you know you're screwed.

Both and the left and the right agreed, leaving the EU would be bloody stupid. So how did Nigel "without a single bullet being fired" Farage, Boris "Bloody stupid" Johnson and Michael "Worst education Secretary ever" Gove manage to sway 51% of British voters? Lies. No exaggeration.
