From politics to sports and entertainment, the 2010s have been filled with controversies that continue to endure.
The same decade that brought us innocuous events like Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ 72-day wedding and the New England Patriots’ “Deflategate” also brought us more grave incidents, including Jeffery Epstein being accused of molesting dozens of young girls and Jerry Sandusky’s conviction for molesting young boys.
In the years in between, Ryan Lochte faked a robbery in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Harvey Weinstein and dozens of other Hollywood men were accused of sexual misconduct, and video emerged of now-President Donald Trump bragging that he could grab women “by the p—-.”
Meanwhile, Anthony Weiner faced numerous sexting scandals, and even served a prison sentence after pursuing an online relationship with a teenage girl.
No facet of news was without controversy this decade — FIFA was bombarded with corruption allegations, Hillary Clinton faced outrage over her use of personal emails, Logan Paul was, well, Logan Paul, and the Fyre Fest’s scandal was so bad that the name’s now an adjective for bad scams.
Here’s Insider’s list of the 39 most controversial events of the last decade, and what happened after the news broke.
