Worst Things that Happened in 2018

2018 has started, and already bad things are happening!

The Top Ten

1 Stoneman Douglas School Shooting

Definitely the worst. - railfan99

The worst part is some of the students died. Things like this are why I hate going to school. - 3DG20

Also dubbed well by me the St. Valentine's day massacre. - htoutlaws2012

When I turned on the news that day, this was the headline, and it was awful. Worst part is, the FBI could’ve prevented this tragedy. - PackFan2005

2 Flu Outbreak

The Good News Is...

They're bringing back the Spray version of the Flu Vaccine. Now children can be okay with the Spray and Shot.

3 People Started Eating Tide Pods

Sometimes people can be so stupid. - isaaonrtdmtr

Da Hell - B0S5J4M3S

Stupid. - Gregory

See tide pods are fine as long as you only make ironic jokes about them and not eat them. - Not_A_Weeaboo

4 Bomb Cyclone

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

5 Shootings

And the media is glorifying the suspects, as always!

Parkland, Santa Fe, and (unfortunately) many many more. - allamassal

6 Florida Bridge Collapse

May all those affected be prayed and helped. - Gregory

7 Death of Stephen Hawking

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

Rest in peace... :'( - Lucy1402

Oh darn! We lost him too?

i am sad

R.I.P Avicii - 906389

14 Death of Edwin Jackson


I think he’s still alive.

15 Meteor Shines Over Michigan

That was a loud and bright!

Shocking. - Gregory

16 Hawaii Volcano 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 - PackFan2005

17 Xxxtentacion Shot to Death

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


He wanted to make people smile and he wanted people to understand through his music RIP to the one who understood
We love you

He helped me go through my worst depressio ever. he gave me support when I needed, he was always there for his fans. Albeit what hedid in the pass, he was trying his best to change, to become a better person. he even donated $100k to women domestic abuse. no one deserved to die especially at such a young age with a bright future up ahead. even kanye felt his loss. Worst thing to ever happened ever in 2018 for me. you will be missed X! :((

18 Alberta Spring Flooding

Hope everyone’s helped in this travesty. - Gregory

I have family members in Alberta. :( - 3DG20

19 Boy Scouts Changing Their Name Due to Girls Joining

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. - 445956

Stupid. - Gregory

This isn’t gender equality; this is female supremacy! - DoroExploro13

This is showing how stupid we’re becoming. What’s next? Boys selling Girl Scout cookies? Oh wait scout cookies! Seriously this is beyond stupid! - Randomator

20 Toys R Us Announced the Closing of Their Stores

This is all because of Target and Walmart selling toys and electronics too.

This place was my whole childhood

Rip TRU. I remembered being 6 years old going into this store buying Team Umizomi toys. (Yes, I was a fan of TU when I was that age) My whole childhood. :((( - Gabo147

Toys “R” Us was the only place where a kid could actually feel like they’re in heaven. Now kids won’t be able to have the same experience most people (including me) have had which is really sad. Rip TRU (except for Canada, Asia, etc)

21 Santa Fe High School Shooting

The fact that this keeps happening is unacceptable. - Randomator

The killer was in belief of two symbolism on his jacket as well as a 17 year old, 2 years younger than the St. Valentine killer just 3 months before. Its sad that nobody in office is doing anything about it while the rate is still rapidly active stop the increase! NRA quit being stubborn times need to change. - htoutlaws2012

It happened 3 hours away from me. - TeamRocket747

Dang it, I despise school shootings. Mental people taking the lives of others who have their whole lives ahead of them. We as a country need to step up and restrict the mentally ill and sex offenders (to name one) from owning a gun. However, we shouldn’t enforce gun control to civilians doing the right thing. After all, it’s not the guns fault, but rather, the person behind the gun. If we did those things, we could prevent terrible school shootings and other mindless murders like this and Parkland. - PackFan2005

22 CNN Accused of Being Pro-North Korea

I did NOT say CNN was accused! I said CNN ADMITTED they were pro-north korea - DoroExploro13

What overdramatic hype monsters they are. - Gregory

23 "Beast from the East" Storm

Prayers for those affected. - Gregory

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.

24 YouTube Headquarters Shooting

This was actually justified since YouTube kept demonetizing people who disagreed with them - DoroExploro13

Wow, that has honestly got to be one of the stupidest and most messed up comments I've ever read on this website. The whole demonetization stuff absolutely sucks, but should it warrant doing things that can put people's lives in danger over it? - WindWakerFan

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. - Gregory

25 Humboldt Broncos Bus crash

Very rare, but horrible things like this happen, and this is no exception.
R.I.P. victims. - Gregory

26 Ontario Ice Storm

Prayers for those affected. - Gregory

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. - 3DG20

27 St. Louis Ballpark Village Shooting

Shootings ar eterrible. - Gregory

28 School Shootings

In 2018, there have been WAY MORE school shootings than usual. - railfan99

29 Google Removed the "View Image" Button in Google Images

That really sucks.

That means it’s harder to extract the address for images. Seriously, it took 5 whole minutes to find a way to change my profile picture. - Not_A_Weeaboo

All because they’re worried about copyright infringement.
Copyright infringement is illegal, but Google is going too far on things. - Gregory

30 Noblesville Middle School Shooting
31 Death of Koko the Gorilla

She was a really wise gorilla... At least she can see her kitten, All Ball, and Robin Williams. - SuperMarioJustin4

32 Eu's Article 13 Wants to Ban Memes Forever

This could end the internet for good.

33 Logan Paul’s Apology for Dead Body Video

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. - Gregory

I made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgement, and I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m simply here to apologize. What we came across that day in the woods was obviously unplanned. The reactions you saw on tape were raw; they were unfiltered. None of us knew how to react or how to feel. I should have never posted the video. I should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through. There's a lot of things I should have done differently but I didn't. And for that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry. I want to apologize to the internet. I want to apologize to anyone who has seen the video. I want to apologize to anyone who has been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But most importantly I want to apologize to the victim and his family. For my fans who are defending my actions, please don't. I don’t deserve to be defended. The goal with my content is always to entertain; to push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive. ...more - Not_A_Weeaboo

34 Teen Titans Go Has a Movie

Cartoon Network screwed themselves with this shameless show, and movie. - Gregory

Judging by the new trailer, it might actually be good - 445956

35 Ye - Kanye West
36 Logan Paul’s Dead Animal Taser Attack

What an idiot he is. - Gregory

Eh... nobody cares about a dead rat. - Not_A_Weeaboo

37 California Screamin’ Closed at Disneyland

Compared to things like school shootings, suicide bombings, and natural disasters, this really is nothing (though the whole Pixar Pier makeover is stupid, I will say). - SplashMoun10

Closed to be rethemed into Incredicoaster. - Gregory

38 Justin Trudeau's "Peoplekind" comment

Biggest L of all time - DoroExploro13

39 Linda Brown Dies

I heard of her death on my birthday (March 26). - allamassal

R.I.P. - Gregory

40 Santa Clarita’s Family of Four Dies in the Storm

This is one of my classmates. Rest In Peace buddy. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Which storm? - Gabo147

R.I.P. - Gregory

41 Conchita Wurst Diagnosed with Hiv
42 Georgia High School Shooting

Don’t tell me there was another school shooting I swear to Christ... - Not_A_Weeaboo

43 BTS on the Ellen Show
44 Kendrick Lamar Tricks White Fan Into Saying N Word

What a douche. - Gregory

Niger koony

45 The Repeal of Net Neutrality

Not this again.

46 Florida Man Posts Threatening Message on Facebook About Planning a Mass Shooting at Disney World

If you actually look up florida man news you get random things - TeamRocket747

47 Trenton Arts Festival Shooting
48 Death of Joe Jackson

Father of Michael Jackson, dead at 89 - Gregory

No. He was abusive to Michael. - TeamRocket747

49 Snapchat Update

Okay? And this is almost in the top 30, why? - 3DG20

Remember when Snapchat was cool? Yeah those were the good days. Now it’s gone downhill - Randomator

That sucks.
Snapchat used to be a good place, a top social media app.
But it went downhill and hardly anyone uses it anymore. - Gregory

50 Kylie Jenner’s Retirement From Snapchat

Yeah, someone deleting their Snapchat is totally worse than the hundreds of people dying from attacks and shootings! (Sarcasm) - 3DG20

Who cares about that - MaxPap

That's awesome!

Since then, Snapchat lost $1.3M of its value.
All because of the new update, which sucks. - Gregory
