Top 20 Most-Disliked YouTube Videos of All Time

YouTube is undoubtedly one of the most popular and widely used platforms for watching and sharing videos. YouTube implemented a like and dislike button on video pages from 2010 as part of a major site redesign. The feature served as a replacement for the previous five-star rating system, which was found to be ineffective because of the rare selection of ratings from two to four stars.

With billions of users, it’s no surprise that some videos become viral hits, while others fall short of expectations. However, there are some videos that have become infamous for being disliked by a vast number of people. These videos have managed to attract a significant number of dislikes, making them some of the most disliked videos on the platform.

In this article, we will take a closer look at the top 20 most-disliked YouTube videos of all time. We will examine the reasons behind their unpopularity and explore what makes them so disliked. From music videos to online trends, these videos have all managed to gain significant attention, but for all the wrong reasons. So, if you’re curious to know which videos are the most disliked on YouTube, read on to find out more.

On November 10, 2021, YouTube made dislike counts private to reduce harassment associated with targeted dislike attacks, but this was criticized by creators and YouTube creators and co-founder Jawed Karim due to visible dislikes allowing users to spot fraudulent, unhelpful, dangerous, explicit, discriminatory or poor-quality videos. However, there are some browser extensions that enable the user to be able to view estimations of current dislikes on videos.

Note that the dislike count does not indicate the true unpopularity of a video, which is better represented by the dislike percentage. For instance “Despacito” and “Baby Shark Dance” all appear on this list but also appear in the list of most-liked YouTube videos.
