I don't know about you, but I'm ready to say goodbye to 2016.

Surely, terrible things happen every year, but 2016 was pretty damn bad. 

It wasn't all bad: At one point we joined hands in solidarity and turned a quinceañera viral, but still, I know I'm not the only one who can't wait for this year to be over.

Here is a recap of 11 hashtags that sum up 2016 for Latinos.



When a petition for MAC Selena on Change.org went viral, the cosmetics company decided to release a 13-piece collection inspired by the Tejano queen.

After what felt like years of waiting, MAC X Selena launched — but left fans disappointed when the site crashed and the collection sold out in minutes.

Selena’s passionate fans decided to vent their frustration on social media and the hopeless tweets were hilarious.



Back in September, Latinos for Trump cofounder Marco Gutierrez warned MSNBC that if Trump lost, there would be “taco trucks on every corner.”

America’s response? Bring on the tacos!



More than one million people RSVP'd to Rubi's quinceañera, after her father's video invite went viral. Soon after, a wave of #XVdeRuby memes were created for the celebration. 

Although only 20,000 people actually showed up to the quinceañera, the party turned into a Mexican Coachella with food venues, bands, and contests throughout the day.

Unfortunately, one person was killed during the horse races. 



In the wake of police killings, #LaGenteUnida was a movement created by Latinos to highlight all the injustices against the Latinx community

Back in July, five Latinos, including Pedro Erick Villanueva, were shot and killed by cops.

The hashtag was also used to stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

During the final presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, the republican candidate vowed to get rid of the "bad hombres" in the United States.

Twitter users quickly made fun of Trump's weird pronunciation of "hombres" by turning "bad hombres" into "bad ombrés."



Lydia Cummings, a former TV Azteca reporter, was photographed getting carried by a man and woman over the flooded streets in Puebla, Mexico where she was reporting.

People wasted no time making Cummings the subject of countless memes under #LadyReportera.

Unfortunately, once the image went viral, Cummings got fired.



Back in August, the world mourned the unexpected death of the Mexican singer and icon, Juan Gabriel.

Soon after, #ComoJuanGaDigo started trending, with fans remembering lyrics of some of the singer's most popular songs.



During the vice-presidential debate back in October, governor Mike Pence told senator Tim Kaine, “You’ve whipped out that Mexican thing again,” after Kaine mentioned Trump's stance on immigration.

Soon after, the Latino community reacted to Pence's comment by using the #ThatMexicanThing to share their own stories of struggle and hard work.



Back in April, thousands rallied in front of the Supreme Court in favor of Obama’s DAPA and DACA+ initiatives for undocumented immigrants.

Many took to Twitter to show their support by using the #FightForFamilies.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court’s tie vote (4-4) blocked president Obama's plan to allow some undocumented immigrants to work legally.



Back in the spring, thousands of women gathered in Mexico City to protest against femicide and sexual harassment.

Through the movement, Mexican activists used #NoEsNo, which inspired women around the world to use the hashtag to bring awareness to rape and sexual assault.



After an image of a woman covering her friend while using the ATM went viral, the internet did what it does best and turned #LadyCajero into an internet sensation
