Worst Things That Ever Happened to YouTube

Here's a list of the worst things that happened to YouTube.
YouTube was once a great site, but eventually, like many things, it went downhill, and not only that, it went downhill like nothing else, it went way downhill too far.

The Top Ten

1 Trolls Invaded YouTube

Nope, actually, trolls have existed since Day 1 or so. - GamerBoy

Trolls on YouTube are 50-50 for me. Some are hiarious, and some are flat-out idiots.

Remember when YouTube was such a great place, full of awesome videos, people, games and searches.

Very fun to go on.

But not anymore.

Now, ever since 2013/14, it became infested with worthless trolls, people making stupid videos just for shock value and money, they talk about and make fun of sexual content and drugs, show off their body parts, make sexual/drug stories, and make stupid food eating videos, their "food" is usually barf, it's the worst kind of food you'll ever find.

No wonder they're so greedy, Drew, Joey, Jenna, Shane, Sam, Jenny, and stuff.

Those stars were once good and funny, but now they messed up, and this is only a fraction of the total trolls out there. - nelsonerica

2 Lucas Cruikshank sold the Fred Channel to Trolls in August 28, 2014

This is an example of when you get into someone who's doing work that's so interesting in particular, but screws up in the future and goes all crazy, that's exactly what happened, he was our best YouTuber of all time, and he messed up, he's going all crazy and cannot behave anymore because of his choices, but his new Fred videos on his current vlogging channel are the only good videos he's making nowadays, and he doesn't make them very often like the old ones back then, he's trying too hard to make money, but he's failing, and those Fred videos are the best he can do, and due to not making them often, they're only giving him a small increase in profit.

Are you implying that Fred was ever good? - GamerBoy

He made a bad decision, now we can't watch anything good on YouTube (besides those two new Fred videos on his personal vlog channel, but even those aren't enough to fill YouTube with entertainment) because of his decision, he got so greedy.

Fred is dead. he ruined himself.

3 YouTube Star Sam Pepper Raped People

YouTube's Sam Pepper was once thought to be an average YouTuber, until he sexually abused people, making sexual videos while raping people, just for his "experiments" and "pranks", he's such a mean troll, he even got in trouble for that, yet he also made a video called "Killing Best Friend Prank", and he got into trouble for that too, yet when he apologized, he never really meant it, it was a joke, he did all of that because he chose to do that because he wanted money, what an @$$h0le (censored to stay clean).

Thankfully at least he gave up and left YouTube, so Hallelujah. - nelsonerica

4 Vlogging Went Downhill in 2014

YouTube was once a great place to go on, even vlogging was once great back then, but eventually, people decided to make stupid vlogs and act stupid in them just for money, they used to be creative, but not anymore. - nelsonerica

5 People Started Posting Mean Comments

People make comments after watching videos, back then, YouTube used to have friendly comments, but then one day, people started bashing and posting mean comments, they hurt each other's feelings when making them.

They only serve as harm toward others.

When comments like these are being made, people just want to cry and even kill themselves and/or others, it's not right.

When someone posts a comment saying "st*u or go to H E Double Hockey Sticks, they just want to hurt other people, and that's considered bullying, and bullying is one of the most serious problems with the world.

It's even the same when someone tells you that "if you don't like the videos, don't watch them", because when someone tells another who's trying to actually help make the person more aware of these problems, that person is just trying to tell the other to go away, especially to H E Double Hockey Sticks, yet that's just so mean that someone or people get to say ...more - nelsonerica

YouTube used to be great, it was golden until the people, such as trolls and bullies, started posting mean comments, violent, sexual, and drug related comments, yet the meanest comment is "if you don't like this video/channel, then don't watch it", Why?

What idiots, nobody is good anymore.

It's just so sad that people are only hurting each other by saying mean things to each other, people need to respect one another and make friends, not harass each other or someone else, what has YouTube come to these days?

I would like to make the nicest comments to make others forgive and treat one another nicely, but why must there be such hate comments? People aren't even being nice to each other.

Plus, what's wrong with this generation? also, when someone asks someone else to die or go to H E double hockey sticks, they shouldn't even focus on those comments, they should feel sad and ashamed because those people are bullies, bullying is one of the biggest ...more - nelsonerica

"Mean comments". Do you mean opinions? Or ad hominem attacks on arguments?

They're actually mean comments, people are bullying one another by saying the meanest things towards others. - nelsonerica


6 People Started Making Porn Jokes

Honestly, I feel like a soccermom made this list. Talking about porn and actual porn are not the same. - GamerBoy

YouTube was supposed to be porn free, but people just started making porn as jokes and posting it.
Porn is just stupid and disgusting, it ruins sex.
Sex is ok alright, it's about loving one another and stuff, but porn is just about sexually treating one another like objects and it has no love.

It's abusive and becoming one of the biggest problems with the internet these days.

People do flag those kinds of videos, but there aren't enough doing it, so you'll find lots of porn on YouTube, especially with stupid vloggers talking sexual trash. - nelsonerica

7 People Complained About Copyright

YouTube used to be free, until they started removing random videos just because they said they were copyrighted, someone's just going to complain about videos being copyrighted, even if they aren't copyrighted.

People are just going so crazy just because of stupid strikes, what if you found a good video to watch, and it gets removed? what do you do? kill yourself or complain about copyright?

That's one of the big problems with YouTube these days, too much copyright complaints/paranoia.

People need to accept what they watch and not complain so much about if they're copyrighted or not.
They're still good to watch, yet YouTube was meant to be free. - nelsonerica

Here we go again. Gimme free, gimme free! by the way: do you post these long-winded screeds to ensure there's no space for comments on the first page? Just wonderin'. And check copyright law. It's pretty much a formality in many cases; meaning, intellectual property doesn't necessarily need be registered to be

8 People Started Making Stupid "Challenges"

Pour a bucket of ice water down your back. are you aware that can kill someone? - Frouze

Is this what YouTube has come to these days? It was once great, but then one day, some stupid trolls decided to make up stupid "challenges", they're unoriginal, stupid, boring, and nonsense, yet sometimes, they're even abusive.

Even those who were legends are doing these stupid "challenges", they do some of the grossest things on the planet, and harass one another.

Why watch stuff like the Condom Challenge or Charlie Charlie and stuff like that?
People have become so stupid (no offense), and have lost their creativity.

And they're doing all of that stuff because they are just too desperate and hungry for money, Money isn't the most important thing in life, although it's one of the things that keep us living, but still, greed is just the wrong thing to do, Greed ruined YouTube. - nelsonerica

9 Google+ Bought It

Google+ is a good reason why YouTube started to decline. It was shoved in our faces for half a decade; you needed a Google+ account to comment, and you were constantly asked to use it. Thankfully, Google listened, and they aren't merging that crap with YouTube anymore. - GamerBoy

Google is great, but Google+ was one of the things that messed up YouTube, YouTube was pure gold, but Google+ was one thing to decline the gold quality.
Videos became less entertaining, and people started making mean comments, what's wrong with humanity? - nelsonerica

10 Advertising Went Overboard

Advertising is one thing to get attention, but too much advertising during a video is getting out of control, there's stupid ad strikes and ads that even involve drugs, porn and violence, it's just ruining our minds with garbage and interrupting our videos, why look at stupid ads? - nelsonerica

As if Ads before videos wasn’t bad enough, now we have ads DURING videos! - thunderstar1124

The Newcomers

? Boob Streamers

I have more respect for strippers than those bimbos since the dancers actually earn the money they worked for. Guys give these streamers money just to have their name on a board or get a thank you, when they can get their money's worth with a gal who'll give them a lap dance.

The Contenders

11 Vines

I'm serious. I have the right to say, vines are mostly inappropriate and a waste of everyone's time.

I don't really see the point of vines being on Youtube in the first place. - Arcxia

This isn't vine, it's YouTube. If you wants vines go to vine. - ClicheUsername69

I hated when Viners became Youtubers, some are acceptable, while the rest of them ( Like Logan and Jake Paul) upload vlogs that aren't worth seeing or remembering, since they act like 5 year olds with a camera.

12 People Started Coming Out

I decided to put this in last place, because this might bother some people who like it when people come out.

YouTube was once original, and later, people started coming out.

Coming out may be interesting, as we get to know more about a part of people as well as a part of their lives.
But it's one of the things that's putting YouTube downhill, they talk about their sexualities.

And usually after they come out, they start talking more about sex/porn, it's no wonder that coming out has become such a weakness to YouTube.

And sexual talk is one of those things that must not go overboard, and yet people keep talking about it.

It's one of the biggest problems with vlogs these days, people come out and talk too much about sex, and while sex is ok, it shouldn't be taken overboard or even joken about, and also porn isn't how sex works.
Remember that porn is just abusive and wrong, whereas sex is loving.

Remember that when porn gets into your head, ...more - nelsonerica

I am bisexual, but when I see a 10 minute video of someone going deep into their life stories and ending with the same message, "It's only a part of me," I just want to smack them. Seriously, just do it like iDubbbz and make a short 3 second clip saying you're gay. - naFrovivuS

13 It's Now Normal for 8-year-olds to Be Having YouTube Channels

YouTube used to be an adult website. But nowadays, if you're 15 and have a YouTube channel, you're considered an elderly person. - anonygirl

14 Too Many Sword Art Online Haters

I can't go to any Sword Art Online-related video without seeing two or more annoying hate comments about the anime series! I don't need a Frozen treatment! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

15 The FineBros crash of 2016

They're dead now.

16 Reactionists
17 PewDiePie Quit YouTube

He just stopped making videos after being accused of being white, I guess every white YouTuber will quit.

He never quit, That was just a joke. He trolled the internet.

But I can see, he really messed up with that.

18 Reaction Videos
19 GoAnimate fans
20 Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven performance was removed

The video had nearly 200M views, then in 2017, they removed the audio because of "copyright" and later the entire video was gone. - naFrovivuS
