YouTube is a very versatile platform. Not all videos on YouTube get the golden stars, some receive the black ones too. YouTube has more than 2 billion active users who all have different tastes in the videos of their preferences. YouTube also allows its viewers to openly express their consent on any YouTube video by either liking or disliking it. But there are certain moments when those diversities of viewers unite and collectively declare their dislike for any specific YouTube video. Of course, it’s not all thorns or all flowers. But as the ancient words clearly state ‘Majority is Authority’, the majority of likes or dislikes on any YouTube video become responsible for defining the video in the eyes of a new viewer.
The dynamic year 2020 attracted a lot of social traffic on YouTube and hence also summoned a fresh batch of likes and dislikes by the newly joined viewers. Collectively, these viewers became the declarers of any YouTube video’s fate. 2020 was a year full of disappointments and some YouTube videos gained their fair share in the list as well. So, what are the top 10 most disliked YouTube videos of the year 2020? Read on to find out!

But unfortunately, as soon as its trailer was launched on YouTube, the high hopes of fans were crushed.
The Indian fan community was outraged once they viewed the trailer of Sadak 2, which was released on 11th August 2020, and got more infuriated by the disappointing movie. The trailer itself received a total of more than 13 million dislikes! Although the movie highlights some amazing actors of their time like Sanjay Dutt and Alia Bhatt, the movie still serves to be one of the most disheartening movies of the Bollywood industry. Fans were enraged at the loopholed movie plot, disappointing acting, and at the overall screening of the film. Some even concluded that Sadak 2 was the worst mistake that Bollywood had ever made and it even ruined Sadak 1 for them.

2. Morgenshtern - Pososi (OFFICIAL VIDEO 2020): 2.4m Dislikes
Morgenshtern is a Russian rapper who is very renowned in Russia due to his rock music and rapping. His music style mainly consists of street music which is loved by his loyal following. His recent release Cadillac has attained a spot on the list of the most-streamed songs worldwide.
On 4th June 2020, Morgenshtern released his song, Pososi, which acquired immense hatred from his fans.

His music video on YouTube has gained more than 2.4 million dislikes and has earned the title of the most disliked YouTube video in Russian history.
The major reason why Morgenshtern received hatred on his music video of the song Pososi is because, in his song, he calls out the famous American rapper, DaBaby. Some fans even state that his song is actually a copy of DaBaby’s rapping style which is why fans disliked it because of the lack of uniqueness and originality of the video. To make up for the massive amount of dislikes that Morgenshtern received, he soon released his song Cadillac which immediately won everyone’s heart and became a TikTok sensation, making his fans forget about the horrid music video of Pososi which gained more than 2.4 million dislikes.
3. Kunal Kamra - Carry Minati Roast: 2.4m Dislikes

The video received more than 2.4 million dislikes and a lot of hate comments!

4. Netflix - Cuties Official Trailer: 2.2m Dislikes
Netflix has a very well-known and positive reputation for being the home of multiple entertaining series and movies and providing thousands of us with a source of entertainment during the lockdown period. Almost every series on Netflix has been a top hit during the never-ending quarantine.
But unfortunately, one of the most anticipated series on Netlfix turned out to be a massive flop when its trailer was released on YouTube on 18th August 2020. The series was specifically targeted for its controversy and the controversial issues of the series urged the authorities to put a halt on its screening.
The series is considered to be controversial due to the fact that it not only targets one of the most sacred religions of the world but also sexualizes little girls. These reasons turned out to be the main factor why the trailer itself received more than 2.2 million dislikes and is considered to be one of the most disliked series on Netflix. The series ‘Cuties’ was hence never released and this turned out to be a wise decision by Netflix as otherwise, the streaming network would have gained a lot of backlash from all over the world. Nonetheless, the fact that a Netflix series obtained more than 2.2 million dislikes certainly assures that Netflix would not be tipping their toes around a controversial topic again.

The clashing humor of the music video became the reason why it attained more than 1.6 million dislikes. Another reason why fans disliked it is because of how it disrespects and sexualizes women. These reasons all piled up and the stats officially declared that 6ix9ine is the most hated rapper on YouTube.
