8 YouTubers Now Become Bad People

So many of the big name channels that we all loved like Smosh have just fallen from grace and turned into garbage, there's almost no good channels anymore

*cough* Logan Paul - AliciaMae

Normally I’d just say the old talent is departing and new talent is stepping in but that’s not the case here, the old talent is departing but I’m not seeing any new talent

Some have but some have become really good people - toptendudes

9 9-12 Year Olds Having Accounts

So what just don't watch them - toptendudes

11 The Channels Aren't Good Anymore

Smosh is a good example of a good channel gone bad. - AliciaMae

Metts is right

There's a bunch of channels that are good - toptendudes

12 Inappropriate Videos

What, do you want everything on the internet to be appropriate for kids? - SammySpore

Videos need to be safe to watch, those with profanity or sexual content can harm our minds and negatively influence us, this is especially our biggest problem with YouTube these days. - nelsonerica

Yes, There are criminals out there that post bad images to YouTube.

Thank god they block inappropriate videos from where I live! - Stazemar000

JUST DON'T WATCH THEM damn - toptendudes

13 Google Buying YouTube in 2006

YouTube is dead. Letting Google buy it was a mistake. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

But Google is awesome - toptendudes

17 Copyright

First you complain about copyright strikes and then you complain that there's copyright yeah that's smart - toptendudes

18 "Message to the Haters" Videos

If you make a video like this, then that proves you take opinions too seriously.

The only "hater" around here is you, for "hating" on your "haters". Haterception.

People are allowed to have opinions on your channel. Not everyone is going to like it. Deal with it.

19 The Video Takes A While To Load

That's your computer or phone's fault right there - toptendudes

20 Ridiculous Copyright rules

I remember back in the early 2000's when you could get away with this stuff, like using other people's music in your videos or using a famous brand, nowadays doing that for even a few seconds will get you flagged for copyright

I uploaded a video of My Top Ten Best PBS Kids Shows, and I used footage from Arthur, Big Comfy Couch, and Wild Kratts. Then I got 3 copyright notices! So I deleted that video. Which took like six hours to upload. - Cartoonfan202

This is the reason why all the apps that were used to watch videos offline have stopped working. Stupid inconsiderate twats. - ThePwoperMuser101

There not really that ridiculous just don't upload stuff with stuff made by OTHER PEOPLE - toptendudes

21 Weird Songs In Videos

Again so what - toptendudes

22 Profanity

A complete waste of time watching.

Sometimes I have a habit of using it, but I see why you don't like it! (not to memtion the f word)

But who cares - toptendudes

23 Darude - Sandstorm

Most of the time when I ask that question on YouTube, that is the answer I get.

If they don't know real song name, then they don't need to reply with "Darude - Sandstorm"!

It's that simple. They ask for the song title, TELL THEM THE TITLE!

This meme is getting annoying. It's very overused and I don't see why it's still funny. Stop with this people. Please! - Userguy44

25 Popular YouTubers are immune to Flagging

It is because people type in the word porno and flag and terminate all users that made the results

26 Trolls

How is angering someone fun, again? Try doing it in real life.

Trolls are stupid

Those are bad here too. - DCfnaf

How to spot a troll/hater

They have a Minecraft profile pic

They have no content on their channel

They have bad grammar

They tell you to go kill yourself and then they run away

27 Pewdiepie Pewdiepie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian and video producer, best known for his Let's Play commentaries and vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 50 million subs.

Untalented piece of crap YouTuber with the most stupidest fans ever!

At least he's gone.

You are a dumbass for not respecting peoples opinion so be a ass hole somewhere else

Watch lief the attaker wrek pewdie pie

28 Hateful Comments

I agree. I'm really starting to not like YouTube anymore, because it went from a bunch of weird, but funny viral videos, to non-stop drama, unoriginal and mostly unfunny videos, and people being rude, saying hurtful things like kill yourself! I actually had to delete one of my comments because people were still starting arguments with me after 2 months! So yeah. It's official! You are pretty much no longer allowed to voice your opinion unless the whole world agrees with it.

All these comments are just a bunch of whiny 12 year old pussies who hide behind the comfort of the internet because they don't have the balls to say that stuff in the real world

Hate comments make things interesting, actually.

This makes me pissed off. What do you achieve with hating? - Userguy44

29 Dumb Comments

Comments of questions about who watches an old video in the current year is just simple and dumb. Well, it was fine for me the first when I saw someone ask it, but now I can find it on about every single old video with at least 1 mil views, and that's hella annoying!

I saw retarded comments on Joel's Vinesauce channel

One person confused Grand Theft Auto Vice City with Sonic Adventure

Another idiot confused Grand Theft Auto San Andreas's character Big Smoke with Bob Ross

And worse of all, they went along with those brain dead comments... - Gehenna

Some comments that adventure time "fans" post on YouTube are sooo disrespectful!

Pseudo adventure time fans are very good at writing dumb comments on yotube...and not only there!

30 "Fake and Gay" Comments

Illogical 12 year olds.

31 You Can No Longer Customize Your Channel

Go to Vidlii and BitView. They have those mechanics - Gehenna

32 Getting Suspended for No Reason

And unless you have a billion views & subscribers, you're not getting your channel back.
If YouTube could care less about you, they definitely would.

33 Clickbait

Don't forget the clickbait video titles! That's just a waste of time. You see a certain title of a video, you click on it and the whole video is not related to the title like what

I'm looking at you MatPat and Game Theory! - DCfnaf

There's always eye catching thumbnails now just to attract viewers, when the videos don't match the thumbnails.
YouTube sucks.

You will never believe what happens in that comment:

34 "First"

Wow! You're first! You earn nothing at all!
What's that? You tapped on a notification and sent a comment faster? You deserve my children!
Woah bro! Did you just comment FIRST one second after the video got released? HOLY NUTSACKS! Take my money! All of it!
Or, you could just comment something related to the video. Which is more tolerable. - UnlawfulMatron

Congratulations to the ten people who were first on the most recent video on YouTube! - AliciaMae

Wow! Congratulations! Good for you! Here's Your PRIZE! *fires pistol at the comments* - Gehenna

So annoying. People think they're cool when they do this. - Userguy44

36 Cyberbullies

THIS is the soul reason why I think YouTube should have to approve comment. If it's mean/offensive it DOSE NOT get approved, or maybe they should just get rid of commenting all together? You would just be able to like/dislike videos. - MJfan119

And the worst part of it is YouTube doesn't seem to give a flying banana about them. :( - MJfan119

Comments should be moderated

42 Package Opening Videos

All they are is opening a package and play with it that is a waste of life

43 Video Is Not Available In Your Country

Oh my god! I absolutely HATE it when this happens! Why the hell does YouTube even have this every once in a while? That's something I'd like to know! - Stazemar000

Well, that is one great example of being as a racist.

I hear most videos aren’t available in Germany. - AliciaMae

44 Raging Feminists

Feminism is ONLY important for the 1960s. God! When will this end?

45 TheAngryGrandpaShow
46 YouTube Poop

Why would anybody wanna watch this stuff? YouTube poop videos are equivalent to pornos and snuff films.

They're not suitable for work and probably not suitable for life.

Some could be done correctly, and at least have a story.
Others just think random is funny (which isn't) - UnlawfulMatron
