What Actually Happened In 2016 And What Did I Just Make Up?

It was certainly, uh...eventful.

  1. Where is the lie?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Kris Jenner did not split up Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

    Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were together for three months this year, and Drake did profess his love to Rihanna at the VMAs. As of right now Rob and Chyna are not together, but no one has said it's because of Kris Jenner.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Taylor Swift DID know Kanye was going to use her in a lyric.

    Kim Kardashian revealed this by Snapping a video she took of the phone conversation between Kanye and Taylor. Lawd.

    Via E!
  3. Which fact did I make up?

    Parkwood Entertainment
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Don't Hurt Yourself" actually uses a clip from a different Malcolm X speech, "Who Taught You to Hate Yourself?"

    Beyoncé is credited as the sole executive producer of Lemonade, and Jay Z's grandmother, Hattie White, did inspire the title of the visual album. In the visual album, there is a clip of Hattie at her 90th birthday party, saying "I was served lemons but I made lemonade."

  4. Do you have your truth goggles on?

    Netflix
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Mary Kate and Ashley were actually invited to rejoin the cast of Fuller House.

    The twins said they had conflicts that interfered with the shooting, and Mary Kate said she didn't feel comfortable returning to the show because she "had not been in front of a camera since [she] was 17." Therefore, it's true that competition for the kids' roles in Stranger Things was that stiff, and Luke Cage was almost entirely shot in Harlem even though, at times, it would have been easier to shoot in other parts of New York City.

  5. Which one is false?

    Niantic
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Pokémon Go is not the most downloaded mobile app of 2016.

    That honor actually belongs to Snapchat. Pokémon Go is number three on the list. BUT Pokémon Go was more popular than porn during, and teens did get stopped by border patrol while playing the game.

  6. Which one is a lie?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Apple actually released three new iPhones this year.

    The three new phones are the iPhone 7, the iPhone 7 Plus, and the iPhone SE. The good news is, those iPhones are water resistant!

  7. Where is the falsity?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Simone Biles actually likes to eat pizza after every meet!

    Specifically, pepperoni pizza. Simone did win five medals at the Olympics, and it's true that she got a little smooch from her crush, Zac Efron.

  8. Which one lacks truth?

    Correct! 
    Wrong!

    But we did lose Vine and Harambe. RIP. :(

  9. Where is the falsehood?

    Warner Bros. / Disney
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Captain American: Civil War actually coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Captain America comics.

    Which means that despite being shot in New York, all of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was shot in Watford, England. The score for Rogue One was composed by Michael Giacchino, who also composed the scores for the Star Trek reboot and Jurassic World.

  10. Can you spot the fake fact?

CORRECTION

The three iPhones released this year were the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone SE. A previous version of this quiz incorrectly stated that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7s were released this year. This quiz was also updated to clarify that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are water resistant, not waterproof. H/T to the commenters for pointing this out!
