The annual recap touting “the videos, music and trends that defined YouTube in 2018” has become the second-most disliked video in the website’s history.

YouTube Rewind 2018 has amassed more than 6.8 million dislikes at the time of writing, second only to Justin Bieber’s 2010 single Baby which was disliked more than 9.7 million times.

But while Bieber’s dislikes came over the past eight years, YouTube was able to reach the milestone in just three days.

With its Rewind 2018 video, YouTube acknowledges several of the popular forms of content on its platform, such as K-Pop, melting lipsticks, mukbangs (videos in which a vlogger eats in front of the camera) and social media dance challenges.

Rewind 2018 has come in for criticism for not including some of the site’s top stars, including Logan Paul, Shane Dawson and PewDiePie – with the video’s comments dominated by people asking where the website’s most-subscribed to YouTuber is.

PewDiePie’s battle with Bollywood channel T-Series to keep the top spot has been one of the most-talked about topics on the website, yet it did not feature in the video.

PewDiePie – whose real name is Felix Kjellberg – has released a reaction video in which he criticises the oversaturation of video game Fortnite and inclusion of people that aren’t YouTube personalities, such as clips of US talk show hosts Trevor Noah and John Oliver doing Fortnite dances.

He points out that the video does not mention key moments of 2018, such as the outpouring of support on YouTube for those who died this year, including LazyTown’s “Robbie Rotten” actor Stefan Karl Stefansson.

The top 20 most dislike YouTube videos on the platform, as of December 12 2018, can be found below. This article will be updated as and when the standings change.
