YouTube Rewind 2018, the video that summarizes the most important events of the year on the platform, has become the most disliked video in the history of YouTube. The video, which lasts eight minutes, surpassed the video clip of Justin Bieber’s song ‘Baby’, which so far had 9.8 million ‘Dislikes’. In a week, the annual count of YouTube already has 11 million dislikes and around two million likes.
At the beginning of the video actor, Will Smith talks about the rewind and suggesting the importance of the video game Fortnite and the YouTuber Marques Brownlee, who has about seven million subscribers.
Next, popular YouTuber like Luzu, GamingWithKev, Liza Koshy, Casey Neistat, Wengie and even the Colombians Paula Galindo (Pautips), Sofía Castro and Ami Rodríguez begin to appear.
Criticism from the youtube community
However, some of the people who participated in the video criticized the final result of the publication. Some felt that they were given too much relevance to people who are not part of the YouTube community as Ninja, Fortnite streamer on Twitch, British presenter John Oliver and even Will Smith himself. Instead, they claimed that youtubers did not appear as important as PewDiPie.

Precisely, Marques Brownlee posted a video on his YouTube channel in which he explained his opinion on the matter: ” The problem is very simple. Youtubers, creators and audiences see it as one thing and YouTube, who’s in charge of making it sees it as something completely different, “says Brownlee.
“YouTube Rewind is a celebration to make a rewind of the great YouTubers and the most important events. Year after year more moments
