Last week, YouTube released its annual “Rewind” video, presenting a fun, family-friendly round-up of the hottest trends and biggest stars on the platform in the past year and people are leaving tons of negative comments making it the second most disliked videos of all time.
The most disliked video of all-time, for good reason, if you ask me, is the 8-year-old music video for Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” That video has over 9.7 million dislikes. Of course, that record has been built over several years, and YouTube Rewind 2018 is well on its way to matching if not beating it within just 4 days.
Why is YouTube Rewind 2018 hated so much? Plenty of users note a disconnect from normal viewers being a primary reason. Others mention a lack of personalities from YouTube as we’ve seen in past years. Others complain about an excess of Fortnite references and there are plenty of people complaining about a lack of Youtube stars like PewDiePie.
