14 awful things 2016 has already given us

*deep sigh*

1. Absolute nonsense t-shirts like this

“What do young people like?”

“Bae! Squad goals! IRL!”

2. Way too many Harambe memes

LEAVE HARAMBE REST IN PEACE.

3. The Great British Bake Off rejig that nobody asked for :(

Great British Bake Off on BBC: Mel and Sue! Mary Berry! Loveliness!

Great British Bake Off on Channel 4: Literally Paul Hollywood in a tent.

4. So many desperately unfunny ‘pranks’

“Hey, you know what would be funny? If I covered my girlfriend’s tampon in chilli.”

“You know what would be even funnier? If I lifted Gigi Hadid off the ground!”

5. Men taking it upon themselves to steal women’s limelight

Remember when Chinese diver He Zi’s boyfriend proposed to her in the middle of her Olympic medal ceremony? Or when Drake declared his love for Rihanna and totally overshadowed her while she was receiving the MTV Vanguard award?

Ugh.

6. These sigh-worthy headlines

There’s enough real stuff going on in the world, guys. I don’t have time to think about whether my dog’s Halloween costume is sexist.

7. One million horrifying headlines about murderous clowns

Remember when ‘clown’ was just a good slag. More innocent times.

9. And this horrifying ‘Kim Kardashian getting robbed’ costume

CAN. YOU. NOT.

10. “Tinker Taylor snogs a spy”

Oh God, remember Hiddleswift and their walks (read: photo shoots) on the beach? REMEMBER THEM DANCING AT THE MET GALA?

What a stressful time.

11. These frankly insane runners from Virgin America

…Virgin America has a treat for you as it’s created a pair of trainers that come with a working video display, built-in USB ports and its own Wi-Fi hotspot.

Just make runners with laces that don’t open, please.

12. America’s Next Top Model… hosted by Rita Ora

AN INSULT TO THE LEGACY OF AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL.

13. Did we mention there’s a movie called Emojimovie: Express Yourself in production?

A film about emojis that, according to IMDb, “takes place entirely in a smartphone”. Jesus wept.

14. It’s all getting too much, tbh
