Worst Trends that Kids are Into

The Top Ten

1 Twerking Twerking

Twerking is a 'sexually provocative dance' as is stated on urban dictionary. Now, I don't want to see kids dancing by thrusting their hips in a 'sexually provocative' manner. What makes this worse is that some horrible people in this world will want to look at them. These girls (The Powerpuff Girls in the image) are in elementary school now. Do you really think I want to see little kids dance in a 'sexually provocative' way? If you answer yes, please check yourself into the nearest asylum. - RoseRedFlower

God that picture makes me wanna commit suicide.

Power Puff Girls + Twerking = Childhood ruined

I saw a video called does Ninja twerk and the comment section said he twerked in that video but the person twerking was just a fat person dressed as ninja while being naked. The people who said he did should die in a gas chamber and deserved it and then burn his corpse and then stab the corpse with an ice pick and then shove a grenade in his mouth and then The ice pack goes down the corpses throat and then
Rip their jaw wide open and then electrocute his tongue and his tongue explodes and then Cut off their arm and shove it in his mouth and then my cousin will throw a grenade at the corpse and then will explode. That’s how much harm I want to do to the guy.

2 Fidget Spinners

Really, these toys are just irritating. My brother told me a kid started selling them at school without permission and the toy ended up getting banned.

It helps you with your autism

Thanks to these toys trolls keep making fun of autism. Not good at all - Lunala

It's supposed to help people with autism?! IT IS NOT A TOY?! IT'S A TOOL?! >:( - Ilovestephanie

3 Dabbing

Every time someone tells me to dab, I tell them "JUST STOP! ". Dabbing is so RETARDED!

Friend: *Dabs*

Me: Do that one more time and I'm gonna-


People who do it: Kill Thyself - SoldierOfFortune

I dab but not too much and not in an annoying way. - Lucy1402

4 Musical.ly

I thought the app was stupid when I first heard about it but thank the heavens it's dying out. Most of the people don't have talent. Do I even need to mention Jacob Sartorius? - RoseRedFlower

Why do we need this when we already have Youtube? These new social media apps are like the dumbed down versions of stuff that already exists. - Zach808

I never understood why lip-syncing is why people like Jacob Sartorius get music contracts. Seriously, anyone can lip-sync. - Swellow

Annoying asf. people still use it in 2018 - soccerobsessed

5 Instagram

I was at Barnes and Noble and- no lie- I saw an Instagram PICTURE BOOK for ideas on Instagram. what? - mayamanga

It's actually a good site, much better than here. You people only hate it because of the kids in your school that use it. Learn the definition of "overrated". - Swellow

Social media is something that gets way to much hate from people who don't use it. - Skullkid755

Mayamanga’s finding was INSANE! I loved the Sean Paul pun (no lie), but thought the Instagram book was INSANE! It’s real life Instagram about Instagram!

6 #Hashtag

#Shut #The #Hell #Up #You #Don't #Need #To #Use #This #God #Awful #Thing #Before #Every #Word - mayamanga

I used to think a hashtag was a breakfast item. - CloudInvasion

Instagram meme tags are some of the most vile, disgusting things to rise from the pits of hell. - Lunala

I'd rather use that as a number symbol or tic-tac-toe board rather than a cringey symbol for one of the worst songs ever, "#selfie".

7 Snapchat Snapchat Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc Snapchat was made in September 2011

An app that's proving to be a major hit among shallow, self-entitled pieces of garbage that litter my school that is somehow still popular after a few years. I know that there are a fair share of people who don't use this app because they're obsessed with sharing "how good my face looks with this filter," but that's all I've ever seen of it. It's specifically designed to share how "great my life, face, etc." is to your friends and users via sending them pictures or... ugh, the stories. I'm sick and tired of hearing the stories and "just look at my streaks! " discussions over at my high school. Apps like these are why millennials are considered anti-social and phone dependent. I refuse to touch this app, and I hope it dies soon. - nerffan8000

All the boys on my bus are obsessed with Snapchat.

Stupid. Mostly used by shallow teenagers obsessed with social media

I can't have normal conversations on the bus because kids are obsessed with this social trash app.

The Contenders

11 Water Bottle Flipping

THIS SUCKS SO BADLY! I remember when I was younger I would just do this as a little game. Now it's become a huge trend and it's been BEATEN INTO THE GROUND! It's come to the point where random singers come up to me, flip my bottle, and carry on with their day

It's so loud and I'm in high and it bothers me at lunchtime while I'm trying to watch YouTube videos - Ihateschool

It sounds like pounding on a wall!

12 Roasting

Worst trend ever

13 'Oof' meme
14 3AM Challenge

Stupid click bait on YouTube - SoloPotato

Please rageelixer stop the 3 am videos

15 Clowns

Clowns are NOT "going around and killing high school teachers", in fact they are not killing anyone. A bunch of immature idiots are trying to scare people dressed up as clowns, so far they have mainly accomplished getting themselves bitten by attack dogs.

Awful, they were everywhere on October, especially Halloween, these idiots are going to get shot by someone some day or even beaten to death if they keep trying to scare people.

*Sighs* My younger brother thinks they're real, but they're not. Even some kids at my school think they're real. These "clowns" are a bunch of immature idiots are trying to scare people by dresseing up as clowns. I'm happy they gotten themselves bitten by attack dogs.-Vestalis

Ughh I remember the killer clown trend - Lunala

17 Anime

Ummm sorry but there is only two people other than me in my whole school who knows what anime is

ANIME IS AWESOME. - CartoonCriticizer


18 Vine

Most of the people in my school are like "You want to see the new latest vine, well it is 'What are those! '" Then it spreads to the entire school and everyone does it.

Some vines are good as long as they're clever and well made and not just random crap that's supposed to be funny - Mcgillacuddy

This is one of the most "born in the wrong generation" lists I've ever seen. Just stop. - IronSabbathPriest

It's the same thing over and over again. "What are those! " "A potato flew around my room before you came! " "Deez nuts! " It gets real old, real fast. - RoseRedFlower

19 Bad Reality Shows


20 Sexualizing Themselves
21 Dating Drama

I was talking to this girl in my school who is in seventh grade and she said that all of the girls in her class burst into tears. When I asked why, she said because some dating drama happened with her ex. I asked 'wait. so there's no horrible disease? She's in seventh grade, she shouldn't even be dating." - AnonymousChick

Everyone at my school started dating in fifth grade...all they do is go to the school dances together and the girls wear the boys' jackets. It's so stupid!

Very clear that the contributors to this very list lost ideas when they progressed. Come on, relationship fights are bound to happen, life is no Disney movie. Also, yes, she can date. - Swellow

I know this 12 yr old who has a boyfriend. she’s so cringey and makes edits of him on musically. Like she needs to stop - soccerobsessed

22 Emojis

The most overused infuriating thing ever. Every time I see one of these things I cringe. They weren't that bad at first, but they are mostly used for no reason. People only use them because they are "cute" at this point. Not to just send a quick text. And now there is a movie of them. Stop it, get some help. - wubbalubbadubdub

I find nothing wrong with these. And besides, they're for text messages, not god damn essays - Mcgillacuddy

I don't have a problem with emojis, but the fact that we're about to have an entire animated feature based off of them this summer is definitely not a good thing. The only reason I would ever watch The Emoji Movie is to bash on it for the entire duration of the film. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Absolute worst trend ever, and that's taking in Fortnite, Fidget Spinners, Minecraft, Roblox and FNaF.

23 Call of Duty


24 Roblox

My cousins are obsessed with this game. Not only does my 9 year old cousin play it, she also goes on YouTube and post likes and comments on the videos, too!

I joined roblox in 2011. It was funnest 2011-2013. In 2014 it went downhill. In 2015 it got worse. In 2016 it started getting REALLY bad and in 2017 I quit. - Lunala

My 6 year old cousin is also into this - Lucy1402

I'm a kid and EVERYONE talks about roblox, I can't go a day without hearing " hey, do you play roblox¿"

30 Kids blowing off steam at baby shows like Dora and Caillou for not being their age demographic

Very common on this site and on other sites. Disparaging shows you liked as a child (and, as well, shows that kids over the age of 8 would not care about them) doesn't make you cool, it makes you look more like an idiot. - Swellow

Look at the worst kids shows list somebody rants about dora being stupid and not noticing things behind her. Like dude, its like that to help kids learn - Yatagarasu

I do this a lot, but I have to admit, there are way worse shows than these ones. Boku No Pico is not a kids show, and it is in my opinion one of the worst shows ever.

It is also because they suck. People may bash Elmo, but not Sesame Street itself, which is a good show. - 445956

32 Pop Music

Pop has been terrible ever since the year 2000 it's not going to get better any time soon.

This decade was the worst decade for pop.

Why is Justin Beiber popular - Ihateschool

Its just called bashing every pop star after the 80s.

34 Pokemon Go Pokemon Go

"Oh no! Kids are going outside and being healthy! While having fun! WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY? "

Pokemon Go itself is not bad, but people who are not being careful with the game make it look bad. - BorisRule

They're playing the wrong game - Neonco31

Kids play Pokémon Go every day, they play Pokémon go!

38 Keeping Up with the Kardashians Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Most kids don’t watch this…

39 Hating Donald Trump

Eh hating Donald Trump's not that bad to be honest.

I am 15 years old and I hate Donald Trump. Honestly, LIKING Donald trump is what kids are into these days.

There's good reason to.

40 Jersey Shore Jersey Shore Jersey Shore is an American reality television series which ran on MTV from December 3, 2009 to December 20, 2012 in the United States.

Jersey Shore is no longer relevant.

It literally says it ended in 2012 - Puga

They don't even live in new jersey

It's like I'm watching grown ass adults acting like damn spoiled 3 year olds, but yet I've seen 3 year olds who have more common sense than these imbeciles.

When I look at Jersey Shore, I see it as, " This is what you're kids will be like as adults if you don't discipline them.".

The only bad thing is the fanbase. In my opinion I think some the AU's are good(the only BAD AU in my opinion is underswap. I just like blueberry sans and that's it).-Vestalis

44 Boku No Pico Boku No Pico Boku no Pico is an anime series of three OVA episodes created by Katsuhiko Takayama. It was released to DVD on September 17, 2006.

Are you guys seriously thinking that kids are into adult-oriented anime? Wow, you guys are so damn prejudiced against everything modern. - Swellow

As far as I know, I am staying away from that anime as far as possible. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


If any kids are into this, then well...just turn humans back into cavemen because it'll just happen eventually. - Skullkid755

45 Teletubbies Teletubbies Teletubbies is a British pre-school children's television series created by Ragdoll Productions' Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport, who wrote each of the show's 365 episodes .

Once again... I fail to believe the people who made this list weren't on any form of grass when making it. If you are over the age of 8 and still care about this show, then that must be rare. - Swellow

Wait do Kid above four really care about this creepy baby show

46 Rap Music

Only if it’s for mostly anything before 2007. 1980s and 1990s had the best rap music. 2000s was alright. 2010s is terrible and it will only get bad from there. Except some artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.

47 Gun Culture

Well, people will still kill people, even if we take away guns. You know why? Because people will use KNIVES instead.

Gun culture in USA is claiming the lives of school children,someone PLEASE SCRAP ALL GUNS FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE. - Hellohi

Sorry Americans who support guns you are just a cowboy. Yeehaw.

Do kids even watch Hentai? - mayamanga

Hey, kids have been searing for porn since like the 60s
