Zoo who was shot out of concern for a
three-year-old boy who had made his way
into the gorillas home while the death
of Harambee was undoubtedly a tragedy
the memes surrounding it went on and on
almost immortalizing the gorilla in our

most of the means either praised or paid
respects to Harambee some questioned why
he had to be shot and what led to his
death to begin with these questions

child number four tide pod challenge
please don’t do this
please this game encourages
able to eat laundry detergent capsules
as per the name this is for doing
laundry not for human consumption well
this was joked about online since as
early as 2013
it wasn’t until late 2017 and into 2018
that this challenge began a life of its
own many teens young adults and so on
started recording themselves biting into
and swallowing Tide Pods and endangering
their lives in the process
tied itself responded with an official
video discouraging the practice in an
effort to stop the many cases of
intentional poisoning that resulted some
stores subsequently locked up the
products while social media networks
took down all related videos use
pipelines for washing not eating number
three Logan Paul’s suicide forest video
it’s it’s it’s been tough because
ironically I’m being told to commit
suicide myself which really well this
certainly wasn’t the first controversial
video that youtuber Logan Paul has
posted it’s arguably the worst at the
end of 2017 the older Paul brother
uploaded a video showing his discovery
of a man who had recently hung himself
well you never understand next to a dead
guy the finding was made in the Japanese
forest called Aokigahara dubbed suicide
forest because of the number of suicides
that have occurred there raking in over
6 million views in a day the viral video
understandably received immediate and
ferocious backlash from politicians
celebs and fellow youtubers with people
calling for the deletion of Paul’s
channel after he took it down and
publicly apologized YouTube itself
condemned the act which many saw as
making light of suicide and mocking the
victim I’ve made a severe and continuous
lapse in my judgement number two hashtag
cutting for Bieber the 19 year old
turned himself in for a case in Toronto
in Canada after the hashtag took off to
stop the popstar from smoking marijuana
countless teens cut themselves and
uploaded it online hoping it had
convinced Justin to stop the worst part
about the hashtag is that it started as
a prank posted on 4chan whoever posted
it underestimated just how much Bieber’s
fans really
love him Bieber already had his fair
share of haters so this did nothing to
help this case you’re all getting
tickets to those before we unveil our
top pick here are some honorable
Gary Gary Gary Gary number one Pepe the
Frog why do all good things have to be
twisted and molded into something
offensive he won’t be around for much
longer because his creator has decided
to kill him off Pepe the Frog started as
a harmless non-controversial meme that
has since become a shell of its former
the great thing about the meme was that
it was a blank slate
it had limitless interpretations and
anyone could adopt it and add their own
spin to it thus creating thousands or
more variations of Pepe across the
internet of course some of them are
going to be controversial
now you’ll find racist sadistic and
anti-semitic Pepe is all over the world
wide web and it has become inextricably
linked with the alt-right movement why
would you identify a character like this
to hijack do you agree with our pigs
