Every Latino Reaction GIF You Need to Say Goodbye to 2016

Read more

In 2016, Reaction GIFs continued their dominance as a new language tool to convey opinions, emotions or concepts in an often hilarious way.

They helped us make sense of this year’s brutal election season, entertained us with feats of athleticism during the Olympics, amused us during pretty much every award show, and helped us repurpose our favorite old telenovelas into relevant every day situations. Plus, with GIPHY killing the game with integrations on phone keyboards, Tumblr, and Twitter, it was easier than ever this year to use reaction GIFs for pretty much every given situation.

Below are a few of our favorite from the Latinternet this year. Let us know which ones were your favorites in the comments.
