Throughout the year, there are various videos that manage to achieve iconic status or have gone viral, and this is pretty much what YouTube tries to highlight with their “Rewind” videos that showcases some of the biggest and most popular videos of the year. Unfortunately it seems that for the company’s Rewind 2018 video, it has managed to end up being the most disliked video on YouTube ever.
Prior to this, that “honor” belonged to Justin Bieber’s Baby which accumulated 9.8 million dislikes since the video’s release. However with YouTube Rewind 2018, it managed to rack up 10 million dislikes in less than two weeks. It is unclear as to why everyone seems to be hating on the video, but it has been suggested that it could be because YouTube has opted not to include certain videos that gained notoriety earlier this year.
Some of you might recall that YouTuber Logan Paul managed to attract a lot of unwanted attention earlier this year for his filming of a dead body in Japan’s “suicide forest”. There was also the boxing match between Paul and another YouTube KSI that managed to garner a ton of attention but also did not make the cut, along with other videos from PewDiePie, who has also managed to court a lot of controversy in recent times.
As a result, some have speculated that the dislikes could be coming from the millions of fans of these YouTubers who are disliking the video to protest their omission. In any case if you have some time to spare, maybe you might want to check out the video if you haven’t done so already.
