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.

Lol this whole list is just people who seem to old to use the internet getting angry over hastags - BestGrillIbuki

The only twerking I like is Tip Pon It music video.

Autism haters will die and get murdered

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

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.

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

4 Musical.ly

They renamed it to Tik Tok

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

5 Instagram

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

Instagram is retarded

Instagram is ok but Facebook is better - Ihateschool

6 #Hashtag

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".

Over used by cringey ass little kids - soccerobsessed

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

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

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

Streaks are dumb asf. There are so many better things to do - soccerobsessed

All the boys on my bus are obsessed with Snapchat.

10 Bullying people while filming

Just pure savage! - Neonco31


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

These are fake. - Misfire

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

18 Sexualizing Themselves
19 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

If they dare talk about my white vans, I'll run with my dignity. (Or either run them over.) - mermaidmanandgarfield13

20 Bad Reality Shows


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 wouldn't do or recommend it, but I don't mind middle school dating. One is never to young to admire someone. - ProPanda

22 Emojis

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

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

24 Fortnite: Battle Royale

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!

My siblings are so OBSESSED with roblox - soccerobsessed

30 Bullying

I mean, I would say Jake Paul. However, it’s the same thing - BestGrillIbuki

This should be number one.

Bullying is So dumb! I mean WHY do people think it’s funny to hurt others

31 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

33 Pop Music

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

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

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

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

They're playing the wrong game - Neonco31

He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. ...read more.

No, Bowie is not a trend, nor do kids really know about him. - Critideal

There is nothing bad about him!

Hardly anyone in my school know David bowle. All they know is dubstep, stupid bands like One Direction, cash me outside girl and dap and undertale.


37 iPhone 7

Apple just wants your money - Mcgillacuddy

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

Most kids don’t watch this…

40 Hating Donald Trump

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

There's good reason to.

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.

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

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

48 Hentai

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


49 Cartoons

Cartoons suck? You think that because you've only heard about the baby cartoons like Dora. What about The Simpsons and Futurama? Those are good cartoons that aren't meant for little kids.

There are many good cartoons man

Cartoons suck! - EliteRates

It’s not just kids that play this. You seriously put this on a list with dumb challenges and pop music?
