2018s ridiculous, famous people.

Have you ever seen someone get super famous for something super ridiculous that you didn't know whether to wish you were that famous for stupid shit or to just sit behind your phone screen and cringe at the stupidity of people? 2018 was the year for both of those emotions, as there was plenty of incredibly stupid stuff that people got famous for. Some things even became trends, and all of them came out of nowhere, but also, thankfully, disappeared out of the spotlight before 2018 is over.

Bhad Bhabie:

Also known as Danielle Bregoli, Bhad Bhabie first appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil in 2017. The reason she went viral was because of her ridiculous behavior and that she told Dr. Phil and his audience to "cash me ousside, how 'bout dat." Remixes were made, songs were made, parodies were made. After having gone to behavioral rehab, Bhad Bhabie realized her fame and reappeared in 2018 as a somewhat successful rapper, which lasted very briefly.
