YouTube Rewind 2018 is officially the most disliked video on YouTube - The Verge
“Honest feedback can suck, but we are listening and we appreciate how much people care,” the representative said. “Trying to capture the magic of YouTube in one single video is like trying to capture lightning in a bottle. We also learned that creating content can be really hard and this underscores our respect and admiration for YouTube creators doing it every day. Keep the feedback coming and maybe we’ll release a top 10 list of ‘Rewind dislike’ reaction videos.” -- there is something really... something? about this statement. It's almost like it's a parody and feels content-free?
