About

"2020 Can't Get Any Worse" refers to a series of memes used to describe how the first three months of the year were filled with negative, disastrous events, including tension between the U.S. and Iran, WW3, the coronavirus outbreak, etc., and that the prediction for April will be something even worse. The theme was primarily seen on Reddit and Twitter, but was widespread around the internet in March 2020.

Origin

Although the first meme to use the phrase “April 2020” as a prediction for the next apocalyptic event is unknown, users online began making predictions for the month as early as February 2020, when it became apparent that March would largely revolve around the COVID-19 outbreak. One such example was posted on February 29th, 2020, by Redditor[1] Jackmcswag22 to the r/memes sub. Uploaded under the title “Ok it's happening, and we have to adapt” the meme (shown below) received nearly 43,000 upvotes and 330 comments.
