20 cringeworthy social media posts that prove humans are the absolute worst

The Internet brings out the worst in people.

And what most awful people don’t realize is that once you put something online, it’s there forever.

From people who live for confrontation to the downright clueless, these 20 posts show that people can be the worst sometimes.

1. First step towards becoming a terrible human: politicize everything

I guess if you can’t easily find something to hate or be openly racist about, you just make things up.

People like this are why the Internet full of hate and fear.

And what exactly does this person want to revoke funding for? Middle school?

2. When you have to Google your kids

Wow, that’s a bad look.

Don’t you have photos of your kids on your phone or something?

3. Can we just make this one thing not porn?

Ok, so most of the Internet is porn. We get it.

But what’s with the people who can’t let children’s stuff be innocent?

4. Et tu, Disney?

Remember that time a giant corporation framed itself as family-friendly and wholesome but really just wanted to make money off of people?

Oh right, that’s all of them.

7. Pwnd

You get more of what you read. That means if you enjoy reading garbage clickbait that has no basis in reality, websites are encouraged to produce more of it.

That’s why it’s so nice to see click-baiters gets pwnd every once in a while.

8. Pizza or sex?

Real sex ed makes you smart enough to realize you can have both.

Also, how grotesque is it to make someone sign a document about sex at school?

Step 1: Never join a hate group.

Step 2: Never post anything that makes people think you’ve ever had anything to do with a hate group.
