Looks like the internet hates YouTube Rewind 2019 as much as 2018

YouTube rewind 2019

In an attempt to make for last year’s disastrous YouTube Rewind, YouTube on Thursday released this year’s annual look back on the platform’s best moments in the form of its YouTube Rewind 2019 compilation.

“In 2018, we made something you didn’t like. For Rewind 2019, let’s see what you DID like,” the company said, going on to list the top creators and most liked videos in several trending categories like beauty, gaming and music.

This tactic, however, did not work, and for another year in a row, YouTube’s receiving more hate than love for its efforts.

“YouTube is like that one teacher who tries to act cool but fails miserably,” one user commented following the video’s release.

“This rewind is just a WatchMojo video without the voice over,” another said.

With all the backlash, the video has so far racked up 2.2-million dislikes on YouTube, which is double the amount of likes it has so far received.

Can YouTube Rewind 2019 surpass last year’s record for most disliked video on YouTube? We’ll just have to wait and see.
