The hit Baby from Justin Bieber has been thrown off the throne as the video with the most dislikes on Youtube.That dubious honor now goes to the video platform itself. The above video, the annual overview of YouTube, has since today exceeded 10 million dislikes. In 8 days time while it is at Baby 8 years.
Critics say that the video, which should contain references to typical YouTube moments from 2018, is full of misses. For example, crucial YouTube moments of last year and popular faces of the platform would not be seen in the video. And what can be seen is also being criticized. According to users, YouTube does not know what is going on in its community and the platform would have made the video so as to keep advertisers happy.
“I do not recognize at all creator in this video. Where are our familiar faces? “, Is a question that comes back a lot in the reactions.” YouTube really has to stop being something they are not, “is another reaction.
The video starts with Will Smith, a well-known actor, but only active for a year on the video platform. He refers to the popular game Fortnite, in a somewhat forced way. “Will really has never Fortnite played, why does he say this and is this so uncomfortable? “, some users respond.
The presence of the most popular gamer on streaming platform Twitch Ninja is also being criticized. The streamer is not known by YouTube, but by Twitch. “Why is Ninja visible in this video?”
Why it is and the other is not?
Yes, why Ninja, and the most popular YouTuber PewDiePie or Shane Dawson (with millions of views per video) for example not? And why is not the reference to the boxing match of KSI and Logan Paul, which was talked about for days, users wonder. Or why is there no reference to the Johny Johny Yes Papavideo, which already has almost 500 million views?
PewDiePies absence shakes a lot of users in the wrong way. In the comments, especially criticism of this choice can be read. PewDiePie is unlikely to be seen due to the controversy surrounding racist and anti-Semitic statements by the YouTube star. PewDiePie, with 75 million subscribers, has now made a video about the Rewind video, in which he criticizes the video. “Rewind was first a tribute to the YouTube Creators. (…) I am glad that I am no longer a part of it, because it is really too cheesy “, he says in the video.
