Most embarrassing internet moments of the decade

by birtanpublished on April 15, 2021

Internet mistakes tend to take on lives of their own finding their way across oceans and living on forever in memes and gifts or is it juice its gifts anyway sometimes these mishaps spotlight the darkness that comes with being online but there are more whimsical moments as well here are some of the most hilarious internet mishaps from the past decade that hopefully didn't get anyone fired even though some of them probably did let's do this first up the sad sinister truth behind the mysterious snake people the 2010s were the decade when millennials were

Accused of destroying everything from napkins to cereal to golf and that was just in 2016 it's no wonder then that Eric Bailey created a browser extension that automatically changed the word Millennials to snake people their evil that tells you but the browser extension also swapped out other words leading to an iconic New York Times correction in a 20-18 story titled president Trump's exaggerated and misleading claims on trade The Times included the following quote America's trade deficit narrowed dramatically during the time of shedding and cold rocks now the shedding and cold

Rocks part is snake people speak for the Great Recession senior editor justin bank wrote about his use of the snake people extension saying that while it was embarrassing he still condoned the use of these quote unquote goofy diversions as for Bailey who created it he told Gizmodo computers were a mistake so take that Fox has all the stuff related news lorem ipsum is a fake latin text that professionals use as a placeholder when laying out webpages brochures and stuff the letters T K are also used to mean to come as in these words aren't ready yet

So don't hit publish yet well someone at Fox News used neither and instead inserted the much more interesting we stuff yo and here is some stuff for yo into headlines and paragraphs on a webpage prototype somehow all that gibberish briefly made it onto Fox News's main page during routine site maintenance the mistake was quickly fixed but for a short time the homepage had revived a story about world zombie' so angry apparently artificial intelligence goes Nazi when the whole garbage in garbage out model is allowed

To take hold Microsoft released a chat bot named Tay on Twitter in 2016 and trolls inundated it with racist anti-semitic sexist slurs unfortunately teh parotid the tormentors and Microsoft hurriedly took the bots offline after less than a day having learned it's lesson Microsoft then released though a tamer chat bot that doesn't do politics no way EA in 2017 Electronic Arts released Star Wars Battlefront 2 fans were dismayed with the game's long grind times and use of paid loot boxes they were complaining on reddit and an EA account responded quote

The intent is to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different heroes end quote and they said that the company appreciated the candid feedback and the passion the community has put forth that passion was on full display when the comet received over six hundred and eighty three thousand down votes it now has the dubious distinction of a Guinness World Record for most downloaded reddit comment EA ended up suspending microtransactions before the game was released proving that every down vote counts oopsie Mik

Oops face this has got to be my favorite one look back in the 18th century captain George Vancouver went around naming locations and sites after his ship HMS discovery there's a discovery passage Island Bay and port and if we still did things that way you might one day sail through boaty mcboatface sea in 2016 Britain's Natural Environment Research Council thought to itself hey let's let the internet have a go at naming a polar research ship what could possibly go wrong into that optimism stumbled James hand who came up with boaty mcboatface yes

I'm serious with over 100,000 votes boaty mcboatface was the contests clear winner but it was not to be the NERC went with the much more dignified RRS Sir David Attenborough but the bode moniker lives on as the name of one of the ships submersibles Godspeed you noble vessel bye bye baby for years Justin Bieber's baby was YouTube's most disliked video then YouTube's own creation unseated the reigning champ the 2018 version of YouTube rewind now has over 17 million dislikes far

Surpassing the 10 million baby took years to accumulate the backlash to 2018 s rewind was fast and fierce creator marques Brownlee gave a detailed breakdown about what went wrong viewers and stars had certain expectations and instead YouTube seemed to be catering to advertisers shoving and cameos by Will Smith Trevor Noah and John Oliver while leaving out some of the site's biggest albeit controversial creators the rest was a chaotic barrage of clips with little context said Brownlee hello dollhouse quick if you're watching this hit pause and mute your eco speaker so

Amazon's you know who doesn't light up now if the news anchor in this story had just done what I did maybe this wouldn't have happened see Amazon's Alexa doesn't take a day off she's always listening and in 2017 she tried to order a bunch of doll houses first a Dallas child managed to order a 162 dollar dollhouse through her family's echo dot then a reporter at a San Diego California station covering the story said during the broadcast I love the little girl saying Alexa ordered me a dollhouse yeah you can guess what happened next

Every Alexa and hearing distance took it as a command most of the orders didn't actually go through since Alexa requires a verbal confirmation before making the purchase still it's not a flawless system and a year later a commercial caused Alexa to order cat food for a viewer a walk-in to remember the Internet has allowed interview from home to be possible and that's what Professor Robert E Kelly was doing with the BBC when he and his family unintentionally became stars in 2017 Kelly was discussing the impeachment of South Korea's then president when his

Daughter marched into the room then his son followed propelling himself in a baby walker finally Kelly's wife burst in after them trying to corral them out of frame though the professor initially seemed distraught about the collision of his personal and professional worlds most viewers found it funny endearing and completely relatable that's one heck of a year for internet mishaps here's to another decade of entertainment served up by the worldwide interwebs we'll see you in 2020 hey everyone thanks for watching did we miss one of your favorites hit me
