In recent years YouTube have released a YouTube Rewind video, which reflected on the past 12 months of all the fabulous things that have come from the streaming site.

However, it seems fans are hating the new review, and have kicked off at the network for its video.

Since being uploaded, the short yearly recap has had an incredible 32million views, however, 2.1million of these people have already hit the dislike button.


Taking to the comments section, viewers have expressed their reason behind not liking the clip, and joked about making 2018 worse than it already is.

Still from the epicly successful computer game Fortnite. See SWNS story SWBRfortnite; Several schools in Gloucestershire have sent letters to parents voicing concerns about the Fortnite game. The multiplayer online craze pits players against 99 others in a frantic fight for survival, where the last gamer standing is the winner. It was released in 2017 and has seen thousands of children become hooked thanks to its cartoon-like graphics and competitive nature. Gamers need to stay alive as an individual or as part of a team, fighting off monsters, building forts and defending the island?s survivors in around 20 minutes.

One wrote: How did they just make 2018 worse than it already was?

Another added: Not even a full minute and it already mentions fortnite. Absolutely disgusting.

Someone else commented: The depressing part is that I KNOW next year is going to be even more cringy. I made the exact same statement last year and it came true.

While a fourth (who spoke on behalf of a number of YouTube fans) said: Who is missing pewdiepie?

The video opened up with Will Smith introducing the rewind, telling fans he wants to revisit Fortnite.

Flashing to the characters of the game in an airplane the clip then shoots to a remake of a K-Pop video before taking us back to the royal wedding.

Because all of this was the doing of YouTube, right?

It then goes on to look at Drakes KiKi dance, as well as YouTubers who have made a difference this year by opening up about their mental health and showing a vulnerable side to them.

However, despite looking at some of the positives to come out of the channel, it appears the video has missed out on some of the biggest hitting YouTube moments this year.

For instance, there was no mention of the multi-million dollar boxing match between Logan Paul and KSI.

Or Shane Dawsons Jake Paul mini series.

They even missed out the rise of Johnny Johnny Yes Papa as a phenomenon, and the endless battle between PewDiePie and T-Series.

So its not surprising fans are a little bit nonplussed about the whole thing.

Better luck next year, we suppose!
