Have you ever seen a video on Youtube that disgusted you so much that desperately wanted to hit the dislike button at the end of watching it? While being viral has everything to do with the number of views, it has hardly anything to do with likes or dislikes because guess what? Even negative publicity is still publicity. Yet there are a few videos which people have unanimously voted as the most disliked videos on Youtube. The number of dislikes says it all.
The Most Disliked Videos On Youtube
1. YouTube Rewind 2018 – 16.5 Million Dislikes
Talk about irony, the most hated video on Youtube is created by Youtube itself wherein it talks about the highs and lows of the year 2018. But why do people hate it so much? There is only one way to find it which is by watching it.
2. Baby by Justine Beiber & Ludacris – 10.6 Million Dislikes
It turns out that there are more people who hate the world-famous pop star than there are Beliebers on the internet. Justin is one of those people who got discovered through Youtube yet this is his most hated video on Youtube of all time so much so that it flopped within one week of its release. The video of this song got 1.3 f-ing billion views with 2 million more dislikes than likes it got. Maybe people on the internet just love to hate him.
3. Can This Video get 1 Million Dislikes? By PewDieDie – 4 Million Dislikes
And, it did. In an effort to show people that the number of likes and dislikes on YouTube has no substantial effect on the revenue generated, the famous Youtube megastar really proved his point. The video is actually so bad that it deserved these much dislikes. So, don’t even bother watching it.
4. The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reveal Trailer – 2.6 Million Dislikes
One of the greatest video game franchise of all times, The Call of Duty disappointed its fans with its trailer so much which clearly show. When asked Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, he said that the fans did not like the futuristic direction of the game. Hence, the backlash.
5. Gangnam Style by Psy – 1.5 Million Dislikes
This is a paradox and one of the rare videos which have been disliked, liked and watched the most. How can it be possible? I think it is Psy’s iconic dance to blame. When the video broke the internet in 2012, apparently people were not a huge fan of the video because of over the top production or Gangnam style moves. It was over the time people started mocking him on the dance floor.
6. Friday by Rebecca Black – 2.1 Million Dislikes
Remember Cringe Pop? Rebecca Black is one of the first people who gave birth to cringe pop. Blame the lyrics, the music, the video and everything for the headache. Though Rebecca got her fifteen minutes of fame on the internet, Friday became one of the most disliked videos on Youtube. It was launched in 2011 and only second the Justine Beiber’s Baby video.
7. Baby Shark Dance by PinkFong – 2.5 Million Dislikes
Remember this irritating song and the equally irritating parodies and mems that followed? Well, it is on the list of most disliked videos on Youtube and well-deserved too. What was Pinkfong, a Korean educational channel, thinking when they turned an old folk song into a horrendous animated song that kids all around the world went gaga over it? These dislikes must be from the irked parents whose patients ran out by the end of the video.
8. We Believe, The Best Man Can Be – Gillette – 1.5 Million Dislikes
Gillette received a whole lot of backlash when they launched this commercial to address the toxic behavior in some men. Some people thought that it was holier-than-thou while some labeled it as misandrist and virtue signaling. Anyway, the Internet has a history of pushing against such videos by large corporations.
