When YouTube was first launched back in 2005 not many people could have predicted that it would turn into the global phenomenon it is today. Yet over the past 11 years the website with the primary purpose of sharing homemade videos has turned into 2nd most popular website in the world, averaging over 15 billion visitors per month!


However for some people YouTube has not been the most pleasant of places, with a lot of channels receiving backlash and hate over their content. That is why today we will be looking at the 5 most disliked videos on the internets most popular video sharing site.

5 – “Gangnam Style” – PSY 

If you haven’t heard of Gangnam Style by now I can safely presume this is the first time you have ever been on the internet! The first and not the last music video to make it onto our list holds the title of most viewed video on YouTube reaching over 2.6 billion views. The popular yet very strange song stands with approximately 1.5 million dislikes, however those do not compare to the 11 million thumbs ups the video received.

4 – Cortando o Botão do YouTube

Cortando o Botão do YouTube is a viral video that shows Brazilian YouTuber Aruan Felix breaking and cutting the YouTube Silver Play Button (which is given by YouTube when a content producer reaches 100k subscribers) The video was seen as blatant disrespect to a reward that many YouTubers would work extremely hard to get. The video which was uploaded in December 2015 currently has 2.1 million dislikes!

3 – “Friday” – Rebecca Black

I will now quote the inspiring lyrics of the song “Friday” by Rebecca Black “Yesterday was Thursday, Today it is Friday, Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterwards” … It’s not to difficult to see how this one has made our list! Since being uploaded back in 2011 the annoying albeit successful music video has gathered a huge response and will very soon be hitting 100 million views. Rebecca Black has gone on to be a successful YouTuber and maintains that she does not regret doing the song despite the 2.2 million dislikes.

2 – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reveal Trailer

Surprisingly this video has made it to number 2 on our list despite only being uploaded 3 months ago. The Call of Duty franchise has been one of the most popular gaming choices for fans over the past 13 years however for the quality of each game is decreasing as it goes on with the company moving in a different direction to what the fans want. The newest edition of the franchise “Infinite Warfare” received a horrible backlash after it was announced to be another futuristic war game rather than focusing on current and past wars like the more successful Call of Duty games “World at War” and “Modern Warfare” The trailer for the game currently stands at 3.1 millions dislikes meaning that over 10% of the people who watched the video disliked it.

1 – “Baby” – Justin Bieber

Remember that kid Justin Bieber who released a song with Ludacris back in 2010? I wonder what he’s up to these days. Well as you probably know Bieber has gone on to become one of the worlds most popular artists and his fame all started with this song. The music video for “Baby” received a extremely negative reaction with people claiming it to be annoying and unoriginal (I’m not disagreeing with either of those opinions) If you took the dislikes from number 5, 4 and 3 on this list and added them together they still would not come close to the 6.5 million dislikes on this video, meaning that it will most likely hold the title of “Most disliked video on YouTube” for some time!
