YouTube Rewind 2018 video on course to break dislike record

People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers

People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers

At time of publication, the video has a staggering 2.2 million dislikes-more than double the 1 million likes it's garnered.

Dawson spent the year nearly reinventing his channel releasing several-part mini-series', the most notable of which was the 8-part series on Logan Paul.

YouTube Rewind 2018 is a mashup of the year's most viral YouTube video, and can be viewed on a web or mobile browser, as well as on the YouTube mobile app.

The video is 8:13 minutes long, and was released December 6, 2018. "'Cause 2018 YouTube REWIND will surpass it in the next 12 hours!"

The Verge even criticized the YouTube Rewind 2018, saying that YouTube chose to spotlight certain stars and to ignore others in an effort to "appease advertisers".

Speaking of which fellow Singaporean singer JJ Lin commanded a hefty amount of views when he performed on Chinese reality TV show Sound of My Dream, the video of which became the second-most trending video here this year. The YouTube channel touches on issues such as family and personal relationships, and also spotlights stories of inspiring millennials. If the whole video had been about that, I'd have been okay with it - but I get it, that's not what Rewind is generally about.

It is odd though that some of the bigger YouTubers were not participating this year. Not to say that this is necessarily a bad thing, the game is massive and of course, it should be mentioned, but to base the entire video around Fortnite.

YouTube Rewind 2018 is upon us and once again people are not happy. Smith joining the platform probably the only real moment from 2018 worth talking about... But the video was also appreciated for highlighting the animators on YouTube.

In January, YouTube received backlash after vlogger Logan Paul published a video in which he reacted to a dead body found in Japan's Aokigahara forest. It looks like they aren't the only ones who are disappointed in this year's video.
