As YouTube hosts hundreds of millions of hours of content and the number is increasing each second worldwide, it is the hotspot for some of the lastest movie trailers, songs, news, global news, vlogs, and information. So, the biggest video content platform has a significant number of videos which are liked by millions and paralleling due to the dynamic nature of humans, there exists most disliked video on YouTube.
While Justin Bieber's Baby song one of his career earliest and biggest global hit has gone down in history as one of the biggest most disliked videos on YouTube. There is a lot of curiosity about this topic. Why the video gets most disliked? What happens if a video is disliked? And the biggest question has to be, Do YouTubers earn money if the YouTube video becomes the most disliked video on YouTube.
We will cater to these answers but first, let us know which are the most disliked video on YouTube:
While YouTube does not ask for a reason while the user's click on Like or dislike. It is also anonymous that means YouTubers cannot view the names and details of people who disliked their video. The most common reason for dislikes stems from negative news just like drunk driving in Justin Bieber's case, a suicide case in Sadak 2's case and non-inclusion of popular YouTuber's name in YouTube Rewind's case.
Yes, YouTubers do get money from the YouTube videos even if they are most disliked videos on YouTube. To understand the reason you have to understand two aspects of YouTube:
Engagement and Advertising on YouTube: Well, YouTube monetisation is the part which makes YouTubers earn from a YouTube video they created. Monetisation means that the YouTube video has ads in them and YouTube will pay the creators some amount from the advertiser. So, there are two points where monetisation happens, first, on clicking an ad, and the second is the length of view when an ad is displayed (video ads for instance).
Now, engagement: "So, guys, like comment and share the video" are the lines every YouTuber has used. But it is not directly how they earn money. Yes, likes, dislikes, comments, views, etc are the engagement of the user with the content. Whether it is the ads getting dislikes or the trolls disliking the video, the fact that they are opening the video to do the same and are viewing an ad means that they are adding to the YouTuber's next paycheck and it will not hurt them.
YouTube Guidelines and Policies: Mostly a video is disliked because the user wants to showcase their resentment about the video but it is a fact that dislikes won't get a video deleted. Either the YouTube video has to go against the YouTube Guidelines which can lead it to get demonetised or deleted. You, as a user can report the video or click on Not Interested option to aware YouTube or not see it in your timeline respectively.
