Top 20 most disliked YouTube videos ever

by Ross Deason


Some of the most disliked videos on YouTube belong to PewDiePie, Justin Bieber, Logan Paul, James Charles, and even YouTube itself, but which is THE most hated piece of content on the Google owned platform? Here are the top 20 most disliked videos in the history of YouTube.


YouTube Rewind made headlines in late 2018 when what is supposed to be a celebration of the platform’s biggest stars and moments over the last 12 months didn't include events like the KSI vs Logan Paul boxing match and creators like PewDiePie and Shane Dawson, but put a big emphasis on A-list celebrities like Will Smith and Jon Oliver.

Within 24 hours Rewind 2018’s release, it became apparent that the eight minute video could potentially take the not-so-impressive title of ‘most disliked YouTube video ever’. However, it faced some extremely stiff competition!

YouTube Rewind 2018 has been a massive flop with viewers.


The likes PewDiePie’s ‘Can this video get 1 million dislikes?’ video, the rather unpopular Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reveal Trailer, Jake Paul’s ‘It’s Everyday Bro’, and even Logan Paul's apology video after his Suicide Forest scandal have often shocked fans with just how many dislikes they've amassed.

Then there are songs that spit the YouTube community, like Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ - a song released in 2010 that still manages to annoy some people.

PewDiePie's actually asked for dislikes, so he can be proud of his final placing.


Makeup and lifestyle YouTuber James Charles unexpectedly broke into the top 10 only four days after posting his controversial apology video to Tati (which has now been removed), which quickly picked up just short of 3 million dislikes.

An incredibly high dislike total for a video is rarely a good thing, unless you're purposefully seeking them out like PewDiePie, but which video is the current dislike king? Well, Wikipedia have been keeping an up-to-date record, so here's the official list.
