44 Death of Lil Peep

A rapper who really changed music is now gone, and I don't blame him at all. RIP Peep.

Best rapper

The only rapper I related to is gone and I’m completely lost.

45 January 2017 Baghdad Bombings

Why isn't this higher? This was just cruelty. Worse than the Fort Lauderdale, Jerusalem and Quebec massacres COMBINED!

Horrible, just horrible.

Why is Emoji Movie above? - AStumpedHuman

GUYS read this:
We've just had a MUCH worse attack in February. It happened in Pakistan. a similar suicide bombing, but killed 100 PEOPLE!

53 North Korea Nuclear War Threats
54 Star Wars Old Republic Trilogy Cancelled

Too many mid-aged people still revere this mediocre, child's fantasy film -- it is ridden with degeneration & bad doctrines, terrible acting, and a constant over-endorsement of all of its network-affiliated empire. SpaceBalls was the only half-decent Star Wars film ever made. Grow Up, peeps!

so sad


55 Death of Gabe the Dog

Gabe passing away made me depressed

Gabe the dog was part of the meme community he was the best doggo, but then, Gabe the dog died AND Donald Trump also became president. The meme community was devastated of the doggo's death. Sleep well doggo.

Should be #1 Gabe the dog best dogggo of all time

Chester Bennington killed himself on what would be Chris's 53rd birthday. - railfan99

58 Donald Trump Banned Transgender People from Serving in the U.S. Military

This shows you Donald Trump doesn't care about Transgender people.

If I became president, I would let anyone serve in the military. Except those terrible, rude, groups. I will also start relations with other countries, and decrease nuclear weapons. - TeamRocket747

What a stupid ban

Congratulations trump, you've now made a stupid decision
