  • People aren’t happy about the star featuring at the expense of You Tubers

All things considered, it's not YouTube's fault these videos are always so awkward - it has to be squeaky clean for a young audience.

The video which was posted on February 4, 2018, has been viewed 76,828,640 times. It also set the YouTube record for the fastest video to garner 100 million views, reaching the milestone in less than four days.

Numerous most memorable people and moments were left out of YouTube Rewind 2018.

Keep an eye out for YouTubers like Molly Burke, Liza Koshy, Simone Giertz, and dozens more in this year's YouTube Rewind.

Joining buzzy 2018 luminaries like the Walmart yodeling kid and "Yanny or Laurel", the Cobra Kai pilot was one of the most-watched YouTube videos of 2018.

YouTube Rewind 2018 is upon us and once again people are not happy.

What gets me though, is that this year it seems to dig up faces that haven't been overly relevant on the platform in the past year, like Casey Neistat, Lilly Singh, and Caspar Lee. With the power of rewind, he takes a school bus on a wild adventure. This is up from past year, when half of the top 10 videos were locally produced.

Six people killed, over 30 injured in stampede at a night club
Carabinieri officers stand in front of the disco "Lanterna Azzurra" in Corinaldo, central Italy, Saturday, Dec. 8, 2018. Survivors have claimed that the stampede began when fears arose that pepper stray had been fired into the Ancona venue.

Emerging and well-known YouTube stars also showed up in a big way in the year's "Top Trending Videos" list.

Viewers have also missed the popular star like PewDiePie who has the highest subscriber base across the world.

Another YouTube Rewind 2018 snub would certainly be all of the controversy surrounding Logan Paul.

Billed by the participants as "the biggest YouTube event in history", there's no denying that this fight dominated headlines this year.

While YouTube's Rewind is disappointing we are trembling in anticipation for the responses from other creators such as videogamedunkey who made his own rewind for 2016. Admittedly, the list of creators featured in the video was small compared with the Rewinds of years' past, and the absence of some was felt keenly, if the video's dislike ratio and the comments section is anything to go by.

Though YouTube said its content creators "controlled" the direction of its roundup, the platform's community largely-and vehemently-disagrees.
