Worst Things that Happened in 2018

2018 has started, and already bad things are happening!

The Top Ten

1 Stoneman Douglas School Shooting

This was sad when this happened on feb 14 2018, crazy they had 18 school shoots by then, I remember it was heartbreaking news, made me really upset, when I heard about it

I feel very sorry for those victims when their lives are tragically taken in this very scary event.

We said never again, but we let Santa Fe, Annapolis, Pittsburgh, Thousand Oaks, Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Virginia Beach, El Paso, and Dayton become the victims of horrific shootings.

This was sad when I heard about this shooting, it already been a year, but it always sad to hear about school shootings

2 Flu Outbreak

80,00 people over 17 people. The shooting was horrible but babies, children, parents died over the flu outbreak, 80 people, is anyone not realizing that's worse then the 17 people school shooting

Apparently a shooting that killed 17 people is worst than a flu outbreak that killed 80,000 people

The flu lowered my dads already unhealthy immune system, then he caught pneumonia. Which killed him.

This is just sad.

3 People Started Eating Tide Pods

At first when I saw this on oh shiitake mushrooms I thought it was just a skit that that lee, the dad of the channel was pretending to eat it the video was pretend, but they deleted that video an hour later, I thought they just did it as a skit, then relized it was a trend about a few days later, not sure why people thought it was a good idea to eat tide pods I wouldn't of done it

1,350 people died in Indonesia due to tsunami

The stench of ignorance is causing me to walk away from the list...

The guy who made this is smart because he killed all the stupid people

Sometimes people can be so stupid.

4 Xxxtentacion Shot to Death

He had a kid and he was shot to death not fair he had I great kid and life

Bye X, We'll miss you! We hope that you had a good life, your singing was great as usual, nice voice. We hope that you're in heaven and the one who killed you will BE IN HELL!

An innocent soul has passed away, RIP X, you will be forever in every kind heart person

He should of never died he was a great person, a great rapper, and someone was so jealous they had to shoot him,that's just terrible. His music just was what I needed and he was amazing and because of those people x can't make music anymore. You will always be remembered. I LOVE YOU XXX!

5 Florida Bridge Collapse

May all those affected be prayed and helped.

I think they build the bridge too fast that it collapsed

6 Bomb Cyclone

Wait I had no idea. I clicked it

Don't give supervillains ideas.

An over dramatic term for a nor’easter that was the coldest in 4 years.

I experienced two nor’easters in January I think. For the first one, I think it was a Friday, I was in the van that took me to school (when I lived in my grandmother’s house for a year). And the ride was about five hours long. We also had to ride with two mean kids. We left at about 4 after a long wait and arrived at about 9 something. I don’t remember the second one very well, but I’m not sure if it was about as bad as the first one.

7 Shootings

Shootings were always sad, same with the school ones, I remember hearing about a high school shooting and another Elementary School shooting

In 2017, there were 11 shootings in schools, in 2018 there were 36 shootings in schools, that is just sad

Guns should be banned, period!

And the media is glorifying the suspects, as always!

8 Alberta Spring Flooding

My town had some flooding in april because of too much snow

Hope everyone’s helped in this travesty.

I have family members in Alberta. :( (They’re okay though thankfully)

9 Death of Avicii

This was sad when this happened, I do have 3 favorite avicii songs, levels, wake me up, and hey brother, levels was the first avicii song I heard in april 2013 when my school did the avicii levels dance, at first I didn't like avicii levels, then 1 year later it became one of my favorite songs, first was levels, then wake me up about 2 weeks later, then hey brother about a year later


Why did he have to commit suicide?

He died at 28 from suicide with a bottle.

Not only did a great DJ die, but I also got in huge trouble for an assignment I didn’t complete. Sorry for being selfish. I also think I heard that Avicii’s suicide was accidental.

10 People Discovered Chained to Their Beds in California

Kids. Kids were found malnourished and chained.

Wow the people who did it should be dead.

Torture. Torture is a horrible thing.

Who would do such a horrible thing to innocent people?

The Contenders

11 Death of Stephen Hawking

Rest in peace... :'(


This guy was a legendary scientist

And then Hawking's came out from Albert Einstein's birthday cake.

Stephen had a good life though he was handicapped.

12 Death of Stephen Hillenburg

This was terrible when this happened, I enjoyed spongebob in my childhood I still kinda like spongebob today, spongebob is hilarious sometimes

Oh my god 2018 has been a bad year I mean a lot of famous people die like Avicii and Stephen hawking, disasters like the Indonesia tsunami and California fires, flu outbreak, adventure time ends, and I CAN GO ON

I just found out this last night, he made my most favorite cartoon as a kid and I still like it today

A legend was born. And now, he has left. R.I.P. Stephen. We dedicate the 20th anniversary of Spongebob to you.

13 12 Boys Trapped in Cave in Thailand

In Thailand, a soccer team including 12 boys and the coach were trapped in a cave 2 1/2 miles long.
They were inside it for 18 days and went without food or clean water for the 1st 10 days.
The coach gave them food, and so did the Navy Seals.

Fortunately, they were freed after 18 days from a grueling 3 day rescue, though unfortunately one of the divers died during the mission.

That was scary as hell

They were all found! That’s the good thing! The bad thing is a diver who drowned to save them. Rip diver.

14 Death of Stefan Karl Stefansson

Forever number one. He always had a positive outlook on life, even when he knew he was going to die. To honor him, sign the petition to put a statue in his hometown, or subscribe to his YouTube channel so his family the golden play button, or at the very least press f to pay respect

This should be voted for top number 1 he shouldn't have suffred through cancer.

Always number one in our hearts.

Forever Robbie, never Rotten.

15 Kabul Suicide Bombings

Suicide is a terrible thing. It should never happen again I should know because my dad did not die from suicide but, he did die from a heart attack.

Shamefully horrible.

16 Eu's Article 13 Wants to Ban Memes Forever

How to ruin Fun on the internet

This could end the internet for good.

If this is actually true, I’m going to be enraged.

17 Fortnite Becomes Popular

This is bad, but not worse than all of the political strife our world has been going through. Still, Fortnite needs to be deleted. It is a bad influence on kids and teens, and encourages violence and idiocy. We need to be better than what we are today.

Fortnite is Christian Buckmasters favorite game he plays it everyday and never stops

I hope it dies soon.

Wow, I wonder what overwatch fan put this on the list, If anything this is a good thing, Fortnite is better Than Roblox and Minecraft combined

18 2 Men Trapped in Flooding Elevator in Basement in Toronto

That's terrible

so bad

19 Southern California Mudslides

Our prayers go to these people affected by this disaster.

20 Death of Billy Graham

One of the few modern men to literally change the world peacefully

He was 99

21 Alabama Mall Shooting

People were hurt in a shooting at a mall in Alabama, luckily only the gunman was killed.
It happened on Black Friday.

22 False Alarm of Hawaiian missile Threat

A nightmare for our world.

I loved that day

This was scary

23 Mt. Kilauea Eruption

No deaths have been recorded, but still, today is May 22, 2018, and the volcano started erupting around May 2 or 3. And it shows no signs of stopping. Pretty bad

24 Toronto Shooting

I thought Canada was safe

25 6ix9ine Disses Ludacris

oh yee

26 Toys R Us Announced the Closing of Their Stores

This was sad I remember seeing videos on oh shiittake mushrooms of toys r us closing around the time I discorved their channel in april 2018

This is my childhood life! How could they do this to all of the little children in the world? I'm shocked

This was my childhood store until it was ruined all because of robots, drones, self-driving vehicles, etc. ;'(

This place was my whole childhood

27 Hurricane Florence

It was once a category 4 hurricane, then weakened into a 2, and now it's a 1.
It made landfall, and is causing widespread flooding and damage.
53 people have been killed.
Our prayers go to everyone there, the news reporters are putting their lives on the line for us to witness and get a clear idea of this storm.

Do I need to explain here?

28 Marvel Creator Stan Lee Died

He was my hero! I loved his work and cried when I found out that he died!

I will never be able to watch another Marvel movie without remembering him.

Although this was very sad. He was 95. So this would have happened this year or next year or some time soon either way.

He is awesome and will be loved for all of eternity

29 Lil Tay Getting a TV Show

Oh no that is really the worst one on this list

What has the world come to

Ooh no this is gonna suck. now we have to hear about a stinky girl with a potty mouth showing off how much money that isn't hers and all the cars that she didn't buy. #LILTAYEXPOSED

Lil tay is bad

30 Government Shutdown

Two in one year and one of them is lasting into 2019

31 Logan Paul’s Apology for Dead Body Video

This is above
*a parade crash
*a hurricane
*a bus crash
*two mass shootings
*the most disliked YouTube video

He should of never showed the dead body

He filmed a dead body and made fun of it, and then he posted it on YouTube.
Since then, it’s gained a lot of rage, and he had to apologize, which he monetized.
Thankfully, he stopped doing daily vlogs, but he should just quit YouTube entirely.

I hate Logan Paul. I’m shocked he didn’t get demonetized for that

32 Amritsar Parade Crash

61 people were killed and 7 were critically injured after a train hit a parade crossing a railroad track in Amritsar.

Sad how we don’t give a bat’s eye if other countries gets obliterated, but when the US faces a tragedy, everybody loses their minds.

33 Meteor Shines Over Michigan

That was a loud and bright!


34 Hurricane Michael

It grew from a category 1 to 4 in a matter of hours, and it was once just 1 mile shy of a cat 5.
It hit the Florida Panhandle including Tallahassee as well as the Carolinas.
The city has been obliterated and wiped out of the map, and people there are without food and clean water and suffering.
60 people have died so far.

35 Death of Edwin Jackson

I think he’s still alive.

36 Boy Scouts Changing Their Name Due to Girls Joining

Hey all we did was to set bear traps while the girl got cookies across the lake

There is Girls Scouts. Like, come on!

You have to think about the girls that don't want to do the "girly" things that girl scouts do. But they shouldn't change the name just how you think of it. I know when my brother was a cub scout, I wanted to join because of the racing durbies and the marshmellow fights. The GSA don't do that, they don't learn how to build fires, survive in the wild, etc. but there are also boys who want to be part of the girl scouts. I rememeber a couple years ago, as a brownie, we had a young boy join our troop cause he wanted to be like his sister who was a senior scout

I am a conservative - but I will be talking in a "coserveral" type of way

The Boy Scouts of America is a fitting sounding name. Scouts BSA is hard to say, and keep in mind BSA still stands for Boy Scouts of America! Girl Scouts exist, and yes, some of the fun stuff done by Boy Scouts doesn't get enjoyed by Girl Scouts, but they can make the girl scouts do what boy scouts do. Boy Scouts are obviously for BOYS.

37 Humboldt Broncos Bus crash

This was sad when this happened to the hockey team, I remember the nhl supporting them after, and on the 1 year anniversary that all nhl teams put a stick outside the door in all their home arenas

Very rare, but horrible things like this happen, and this is no exception.
We'll never forget this.
R.I.P. victims.

38 Amtrak Train 91 Derailment

Prayers go to the victims.

39 BTS on the Ellen Show

This is my friends phone, not my actual one. I love you BTS I cried when all of them were jumpscared

Are you actually serious? People need lives

That is crazy


40 YouTube Rewind 2018


Completely cringe, most disliked video on YouTube 😒

41 Bakersfield Shooting

6 people were killed, with 5 victims, and the perpetrator himself.

42 YouTube Headquarters Shooting

Great, I can just see a hardcore YouTube Rewind hater coming in to shoot the CEO next because their video was so bad. God help me if anyone gets involved except the murderers getting killed.

Very horrible

Its not that bad, sorry :l

All because a woman’s YouTube channel got demonetized, and she lost her temper and shot 3 people at YouTube HQ.
The only death was herself.
Prayers for YouTube HQ.

43 Disney World Bus Crash

At Walt Disney World, 2 buses crashed on the way to Epcot, sending 15 people to the hospital for minor injuries.

44 France win FIFA World Cup 2018

I am Croatian and very sad Croatia lost. France winning the World Cup should come in first place for worst things that happened in 2018.

I'm french and I hate this team. They don't even deserve winning.

This is their only victory

45 "Beast from the East" Storm

Prayers for those affected.

If you live in the UK, Ireland or anywhere in Western Europe, this was really bad. The snow was knee deep. And I thought 2010 was bad.

46 Baltimore Police Shooting

An officer was shot to his death in Baltimore.

47 Duck Boat Capsized in Missouri
48 National Museum of Brazil Fire
49 Ontario Ice Storm

Prayers for those affected.

This should be higher than 34.

This should be above snapchat

I can’t believe this is lower than some stupid Snapchat update and Kylie Jenner “retiring”. It’s definitely not the worst thing that happened this year, but the roads were bad and it was hard to walk through all of the snow and ice.

50 CNN Accused of Being Pro-North Korea

I did NOT say CNN was accused! I said CNN ADMITTED they were pro-north korea
