We're just going to leave this here...

Tom's not the only one to think this...

Others have also put forward this sentiment.

David Bowie probably wasn't actually god. He was a great musician.

Still, here are just some of the bad things that have happened in the world since Bowie left us - six months ago this week - on January 10.

  • An influx of celebrity deaths, such as Alan Rickman, Muhammad Ali, Terry Wogan, Ronnie Corbett, Victoria Wood, Prince, and Caroline Aherne, to name not all.

  • North Korea decided to launch a long-range rocket into space violating UN treaties.

  • A terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium, in which 32 victims were killed and hundreds injured.

  • A suicide bombing in Lahore, Pakistan, left more than 70 people dead.

  • The Panama Papers.

  • An EgyptAir flight crashed over the Mediterranean that left 66 people dead.

  • The United Kingdom voted to leave the EU. It has sparked a cacophony of economic and political uncertainty.

  • David Cameron stood down as prime minister.

  • Racist abuse and attacks in Britain increased.

  • Violent clashes between fans take place during Euro 2016. Particularly English and Russian supporters.

  • Islamists killed 20 foreigners at an upmarket bakery in Gulshan in Bangladesh.

  • And further suicide car bombings took place at a shopping district in Baghdad, Iraq, killing up to 300 people.

  • A man drove a truck through a large gathering of people celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France.

  • The Turkish military attempted a coup to oust President Erdogan.

Could it be..?
