YouTube introduced the option of like and dislike a video in 2010 and trust me it has been one hell of a ride for the YouTubers here. Now, people can pour their heart out on a video and you can get the magnitude that whether they like it or not. And hence, I comprised a list of most disliked videos on YouTube over the time.
With popularity comes great responsibility and you cannot keep people happy every time. Despite getting so many views and recognition there are videos which has been disliked heavily. In fact, some of them came quite as a shocker while I was looking for them. For more, check out the section below.
Top 20 Most Disliked Videos on YouTube
Well, there are like hundreds and thousands of videos on YouTube which has been disliked so many times. I could not mention them all here because of course let’s face it, so much of information can explode people’s head. Jokes apart, I curated 20 most disliked videos on YouTube section along with some description and you can check them out right below.
1. Baby by Justin Bieber
Well, you guess it right. Baby is still on the top of the list of most disliked videos on YouTube. We have created memes and trolls and everything else on this song and of course Justin Bieber and no other song has surpassed the whopping 8.8 million dislikes on it.
It was released in 2010 sung by Bieber and featuring Ludacris who have sung the raps in it. Well, the time has gone we have probably moved on from the genre of disco string now.
Although, you should know that this song has also gained more than 3 Billion views on YouTube as well. However, the factor of Puppy Love described in the song worked well for the Canadian singer and he instantly got popular with it.
2. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Reveal Trailer
All those who are probably living under a rock, let me tell you Call of Duty is a popular shooter game series and this trailer of its installment, Infinite Warfare was released in May, 2016. However, something was really off with this trailer that it garnered over 3.69 million dislikes in no time.
Within 15 days it became the second most disliked videos on YouTube. The main reason behind it was because this installment was featuring nothing new to the gamers.
It came with the similar sci-fi future plot and people were expecting more modern touch here and hence the reactions are in front of you. However, this unusual behavior didn’t harm the publicity of the game as it went on to become a huge commercial hit.
3. It’s Everyday Bro by Jake Paul
If you don’t know who Jake Paul is then you are probably living under a rock. This video by Jake Paul featuring Team 10 was released in May, 2017 and became an instant talk of them town in both positive and negative way.
Well, music wise, the song did great and charted on top 2nd position in iTunes Charts. But then what led to it becoming the 3rd most disliked videos on YouTube?
Well, you would be shocked to know that one of the lyrics in the song says “England is my City” but even a kid knows that England is a country. Not only has this but the song taken a dig at Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend Alissa Violet and hence it came under a huge back leash by viewers.
4. Can this Video get 1 million Dislikes? By PewDiePie
Next one in the race of most disliked YouTube video is this one with the title “Can This Video Get 1 Million Dislikes?” by popular YouTuber PewDiePie. A video whose title itself is like this then it was so obvious for it to viral like crazy and garnering insane views as well as dislikes.
Can you believe it, he actually asked for it and instantly got them too. He is actually an “extreme stunt performer” (sold off his YouTube Play Button) but this time his stint totally blew everyone off.
This video is completely pointless and he could do all the stupidity possible to make this video and finally ended up getting more than 1 million dislikes on it. It was released in December, 2016 and currently has more than 3 million dislikes on it.
5. Friday by Rebecca Blake
Rebecca Blake was a teen sensation when this song of her Friday came out in September, 2011. In fact, it was actually kind of surprising because Friday instantly left behind Baby and became one of the most disliked videos on YouTube at that time.
Currently it has 3.11 million dislikes and a lot of negative reactions to its credit. In fact, some people and celebrities even called it the worst video ever made in the history.
Because of being highly amateur and using the simplest lyrics ever, the song was trolled heavily. However, it worked like wonder for Rebecca who instantly became popular and bagged some big projects because of it. I think you should also watch the video if you haven’t till now.
6. Despacito by Luis Fonis
I don’t think I need to say much about the popularity of Despacito. Sung by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee the song became an internet sensation in no time. In fact, Despacito is the most viewed song on YouTube too with over 3 billion views.
Well, of course with huge popularity comes some back leash too and the same happened with this song too as it became one of the most disliked videos on YouTube with over 3 million dislikes.
But that is not because of some particular reason but the huge attention that this video drawn. This number did not affect the popularity of this song as it went on to win number of awards and huge recognition afterwards.
7. How It is (Wap Bap) by BibisBeautyPalace
How It is stands on the 7th position of this list of most disliked videos on YouTube. It is sung by Bianca Heinicke or Bibi who runs the YouTube channel BibisBeautyPalace. This song stands on the 1st position of the most disliked video on German YouTube Channel.
This song is about being optimistic and never giving up in any situation in life. Despite giving a positive message, the song garnered all the negative reviews in the world.
It earned 44 million views and 2.5 million dislikes. Its auto-tune, childish video and lyrics, plagiarism accuses and various other aspects led onto grabbing it highly negative reviews from music composers and critics around the globe. Despite that the song did a good commercial business all thanks to the massive views it grabbed.
8. Cortando o Botao do YouTube by Aruan Felix
Cortando O Botao do YouTube or Cutting the YouTube Button is one of the most viral YouTube videos with most dislikes to its credit. This is a Brazilian viral video came out in December, 2015 and in no time gained 2.45 million dislikes on YouTube.
In the video, you can see the Brazilian YouTuber Aruan Felix breaking the Silver YouTube Button which is given when an artist hits 100,000 subscribers.
This is the first Brazilian video to reach more than 1 million dislikes. The video went viral like crazy and most of people were angry to see him doing something like that. In fact, he made another video on this one and that went even more crazily viral garnering more views than the earlier one. Some people are crazy or what?
9. So Sorry by Logan Paul
Before you want to know about this video, you would have to get to know about the story behind it. Actually, this video is an apology video made up popular YouTuber Logan Paul. Logan earlier posted a video where he was exploring Japanese forest and came across a dead body hanging from tree.
He filmed it and even laughed which created a huge stir on the internet. So, after this, he made a video for apologizing on it and also deleted the earlier video.
But I think it did not go well and he had to face a lot of backlash over it. And the results are in front of you as this video went on to become one of the most disliked videos on YouTube with 2 million dislikes despite the fact that it came just 3 months ago.
10. Gangnam Style by PSY
Not only Gangnam Style counted amongst the most disliked videos on YouTube but it also stands on the 4th position of most viewed and most liked videos too. It came out in July, 2012 by recording artists Psy and instantly became a huge hit because of the catchy lyrics and unique dance style in the video.
This video is about poking fun at the high-end lifestyle of Seoul’s Gangnam-gu district. And as you know because of being sensational, it had to go through some hatred too.
Some people called the dance moves regressive and some people just hated it for no reason. And because of this the video gained 2 million dislikes.
11. Sweatshirt by Jacob Sartorious
Sweatshirt came out in May, 2016 and it is the debut song of American internet personality Jacob Satorious. You can see Jacob offering his sweatshirt to a girl in the video hence the name. However, there was something about the video the viewers did not like and it gained over 1 million dislikes.
So, let me tell you firstly that Jacob is just 14 years old and showing such middle school romance in videos is kind of creepy.
And other reasons of this song becoming one of the most disliked videos on YouTube was because of the use of excessive auto-tune and really bad music in it. It was obvious for this video to gain such kind of backlash.
12. YouTube Rewind: The Shape of 2017 by YouTube Spotlight
Here is a mini-description if you do not know what YouTube Rewind means. This is a review of each year’s YouTube feed prepared by YouTube itself. But it turns out that 2017’s YouTube Rewind got included amongst the most unliked video on YouTube.
This years’ YouTube Rewind included a lot of new YouTubers and The Shape of 2017 was based on the song The Shape of You of Ed Sheeran and gained 191 million views on it. However, with popularity comes some backlash and hence the video also has over 1 million dislikes too.
Well, you cannot tell a particular reason for this and it maybe because some of the artists might not get featured in the video. Also, this year’s YouTube Rewind gained less views as compared to the one of 2016.
13. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster (Episode 17) by Get Movies
Masha and the Bear is a Russian animated series. Interestingly, this episode called Recipe for Disaster is one of the only animated videos that has grabbed more than 2 billion views on it. And people are still wondering that how it can be even possible?
In fact, this is the only animated videos amongst the other top 10 most viewed videos on YouTube and of course, the dislikes on the videos are just the repercussions of the too much attention that it grabbed.
This series is about an adventurous girl Masha and her bear friend which leads to a good entertainment for kids. However, the growing popularity made it included in the list of most disliked videos on YouTube.
14. Pokemon Go Song by Mishovy Silensoti
Pokemon Go is a song dedicated to the game by Czech YouTuber Mishovy Silensoti or Misha on his YouTube channel of the same name. He is literally a kid singing the same line “I play Pokemon Go everyday” in the entire video over different locations.
The video went viral like crazy when it was uploaded in July, 2016 and currently has more than 65 million views on it.
What came as usual was the genuine hatred for this song and it gained 1.3 million dislikes on it. This is because the voice and music is just horrible and literally the song makes no sense. In fact, it sounds like a chant with the irritating noise. This video definitely deserves to be on the 14th position of most disliked videos on YouTube.
15. Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus
Wrecking Ball is a Miley Cyrus video song came out in September, 2013. It has 1.25 million dislikes on it and gained more attention because of the provocative video of it. Miley is being shown in the boots only as the video progresses further without any clothes on.
The unnecessary nudity came as a surprise to people because it was not at all required for the video and seemed like done intentionally to gain popularity.
This was the reason that it became one of the most disliked videos on YouTube instantly. In fact, people said that Miley went too far this time in order to get rid of her Hannah Montana image and did something which was not even required.
16. Anaconda by Nicki Minaj
Anaconda is a song by American rapper Nicky Minaj which mainly samples Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-lot. It came out in August, 2014 and in no time gained popularity and currently has more than 750 million views on it.
What makes it one of the most disliked YouTube video is the way Nicki has appeared in it. In fact, the cover of the album was talk of the town as Minaj can be seen showing off her bare butts in it.
In fact, some media house even slammed her for portraying such sexual content which rather seemed vile and desperate. It is all about twerking and showing bananas throughout the video which brought too much controversy for the video.
17. How Many Dislikes Can This Video Get by RiceGum
Seems like YouTubers are going that extra step to bring popularity to their videos and another one doing the same is RiceGum channel on YouTube. This video came out in August, 2017 and guess what without doing much of efforts they actually got 1 million dislikes on this video.
The video features the guy who regularly featured in RiceGum videos and talks about grabbing 7 million subscribers on his channel.
And can you even believe it that he got more than 4 million views on this video. I think people are just growing crazy these days and this is the only reason this video could get so many dislikes on it. The video absolutely makes no point and not even has any objective so I think that brings easy money for some YouTubers.
18. We Can’t Stop by Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is again under the radar for making one more music video worthy enough to be included in the most disliked videos on YouTube. The song was released in June, 2013 and again the video grabbed so many eyeballs because of Miley getting so much provocative in it.
The video has over 800 million views on it and 3.1 million likes too. Talking about the dislikes then it has around 1 million dislikes on it.
Some people called it high-spirited and giving out a message to fully explore sexuality while some people called it being extremely vile and sexual without even making any strong point. The video got involved in so much of controversy and hence this is the reason of getting so many dislikes on it.
19. Sorry by Justin Bieber
We are back with one more Justin Bieber music video to include in the list of most disliked videos on YouTube. After gaining 8.8 million dislikes on Baby, Justin’s Sorry got 1.31 million dislikes on it. The song came out in October, 2015 and interestingly has 2.5 Billion views on it.
The main reason of grabbing so many dislikes was just because the music video got great attention and of course every popular thing comes with its own share of Backlash like Despacito.
However, there were also reports of plagiarism on this song as well, which was also the reason of such reaction from the viewers. However, this didn’t stop the song from becoming a really huge hit in 2015.
20. Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift
The 20th most disliked video on YouTube is surprisingly Look What You Made Me do by Taylor Swift. The music video came out just 7 months ago and turned out to be the most viral video of Taylor gaining 800 million views on it.
However, some people considered it highly different from what Taylor Swift usually do and there were lots and lots of hidden meanings in it as well. However, the video has already grabbed its share of stardom and popularity now.
Some people considered it Taylor taking a dig at her ex Calvin Harris. While some people believed that she is shading Kanye and her wife Kim over it and hence the respective fans of other celebs given out their reaction in form of dislikes on her video. Currently it has 1.1 million dislikes on the video.

So, I think with lots of fame comes lots of backlash too. However, this list is only configured for one and I do not have anything personal here.
