From politics to sports and entertainment, the years of 2010 have been full of controversy that continues to endure. Many celebrity videos (in spanish: vídeos de famosos) came to light and many things were released.

The same decade that brought us innocuous events like the 72-day wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries and the New England Patriots "Deflategate" also brought us more serious incidents, including Jeffery Epstein accused of abusing dozens of girls and the conviction of Jerry Sandusky for molesting young children. 

Meanwhile, Anthony Weiner faced numerous sexting scandals and even served a prison sentence after seeking an online relationship with a teenage girl. 

No facet of news was without controversy this decade: FIFA was bombarded with allegations of corruption, Hillary Clinton faced outrage over her use of personal emails, Logan Paul was, well, Logan Paul, and the Fyre Fest scandal was so bad that the name is now an adjective for bad scams. 

2011: Former U.S. Senator John Edwards was accused of spending nearly $1 million to keep his lover hidden during his 2008 presidential campaign.
