Top 10 Worst YouTubers of All Time

Ever found yourself doomscrolling through YouTube's dark underbelly, where cringe is king and views seem to reward the absolute worst behavior? We're talking about those channels that make you question humanity, the ones that leave you with a lingering sense of why did I just watch that?

Maybe it's the prankster who takes things too far, the beauty guru whose scandals are more fascinating than their makeup tutorials, or the gamer whose toxic rants are legendary. Perhaps it's the vlogger who overshares every mundane detail of their life, the commentator whose hot takes are always lukewarm, or the family channel whose kids are clearly being exploited for views.

Whoever makes your skin crawl, your vote counts. This is your chance to call out the cringiest, the most obnoxious, the absolute worst of the worst.
The Top Ten
1 Onision Gregory James Daniel (born November 11, 1985), is a controversial American YouTuber. His primary YouTube channel, "Onision", featured sketches and satirical clips; videos posted to his other channels focus on personal stories covering controversial topics as well as discussion with his viewers. His... read more

This is the worst YouTube ever. He is so abusive. I hate him. I've seen him before and he's very abusive. This is bad. He recorded his girlfriend having a stroke. I am never watching this guy again. This is really bad.

This lowlife scumbag deserves to be deplatformed and removed from society. He's a vile, sociopathic, pathetic excuse for a person. He is also notorious for being a groomer, as well as an abuser.

Why this individual hasn't been arrested yet is beyond me. His videos are not entertaining in the slightest. His opinions are garbage, yet he treats them like gospel. He acts like a child toward anyone who dares to criticize him. It seems his massive ego cannot handle the fact that he is a moronic waste of oxygen.

2 Jake Paul Jake Joseph Paul (born January 17, 1997) is an American social media personality and professional boxer. He initially rose to fame on Vine, before playing the role of Dirk Mann on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark for two seasons. Throughout his career, Paul has become the subject of many controversies... read more

Listen up, whether you're a boy or a girl: if you haven't heard of this spoiled brat, you're lucky - very lucky. I've heard that he scammed his 7-12 viewers.

The worst part is that in every video he's going to dab and say, Buy the merch. Then kids get their parents' credit cards and buy the merch. It's just pathetic to me how he's fooling these kids on the internet to be just like him. His fans also change their tone when they watch his videos. The funny thing is, I'm 11 and I know he acts like this.

Jake Paul is just a spoiled brat who spends his day boasting about his life and being an utter annoyance to everyone else. The fame has obviously gotten to his head as he steps on everyone beneath him. Additionally, his fans just mindlessly follow everything he says and does, which shows how low society can get.

3 PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is 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... read more

PewDiePie is, in my opinion, the worst YouTuber who has ever existed. His Let's Play videos are filled with nonsense, and he frequently makes crude and unfunny jokes. Moreover, he has made or said things that are considered anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim.

What upsets me the most is that, despite all this, he still has a massive following. I can't understand why people like him. If every channel on YouTube were an object, PewDiePie's channel would be a soiled diaper drenched in urine and feces, because it's absolute garbage.

4 Logan Paul Logan Alexander Paul (born April 1, 1995) is an American YouTuber and social media personality. In addition to posting on his own YouTube channel, he has run the Impaulsive podcast since November 2018. As of January 2022, he has more than 23 million subscribers on YouTube... read more

I really hope this piece of garbage gets his channel deleted after that dead body video he posted. It's probably not going to happen, seeing as how YouTube put it at #10 on Trending and his apology video was #1 on Trending. YouTube needs a serious overhaul of its guidelines after this.

What this speck of mucus did was unforgivable, and YouTube needs to stop supporting people who do things like this.

I'm honestly not sure why PewDiePie is above this scumbag. Sure, PewDiePie's content has taken a nosedive over the years and wasn't always the best to begin with. But this little puke filmed a dead body and proceeded to make a joke, not only about the body but also about Japanese culture.

He and his brother are some of the worst douchebags to have ever walked the Earth. He shouldn't be allowed on YouTube anymore. What ever happened to standards and good content?

5 Sam Pepper Samuel Pepper (born 26 March 1989) is a British internet personality, prankster, TikToker and former YouTuber. He created his YouTube channel in 2010, which has accumulated over 2 million subscribers and 55 million video views as of October 2020. No new content has been uploaded to his channel since... read more

How is PewDiePie worse than a sex offender? I despise Sam and hope he burns one day. He's even worse than Jake Paul - JAKE PAUL - because of how much of a scumbag he is.

How is PewDiePie worse than a rapist?!

The killing best friend prank concludes that he should be #1 on this list.

6 Peluchin Entertainment MatĂ­as Ignacio Vera Oyarzo (born: September 19, 2003), better known online as Peluchin Entertainment, is a Chilean former YouTuber in the Spanish YouTube community. He became infamous for a video showing him inflicting violent, fatal abuse on his pet cat named Jason Krueger.

Allow me to remind you that this guy actually had homicidal thoughts even before he killed Jason Krueger (the cat that he owned). He admitted to having thoughts about killing his mother and, years ago, tried to strangle his cousin to death.

He should be in jail. This kid has displayed signs of psychopathy and becoming a serial killer, which is terrifying to even think about.

When I saw the videos of Peluchin Entertainment abusing his cats, I was fuming alongside The Shadow Reader. The Shadow Reader has every right to be angry at Peluchin Entertainment.

For me, I hope this cat murdering waste of flesh suffers from an excruciating fate as his cats did. May the kittens and cats rest in peace, for they are no longer suffering from the agonizing torment.

7 DaddyOFive FamilyOFive, originally known as DaddyOFive, was a controversial YouTube channel and online alias of Michael Christopher "Mike" Martin (born December 17, 1982), which focused on daily vlogging and "prank" videos. At its peak, the channel's videos featured Martin, his wife Heather Martin—also known... read more

What kind of a psychopath thinks it's okay to abuse children for fun on camera and then upload it?! I'm glad that this channel was deleted and that the kids were put into care.

These parents really need to take a good look at themselves and realize how horrible their actions toward their children are. I feel really sorry for those kids for what they had to go through, especially Cody. I've tried watching their videos in their entirety, but I can't.

I'm shocked and appalled at what I just witnessed. There's no sign of any love or compassion between any of the family members, just fear, pain, distress, and complete and utter bullying. These people do not deserve to have children if they keep using them as punching bags. Absolutely disgusting.

I hope these kids are well and truly loved and cared for, like what all of us deserve.

8 SkyDoesMinecraft Adam Dahlberg (born: January 17, 1993), better known online as Sky Does Everything or NetNobody (formerly SkyDoesMinecraft), is an American YouTuber, video game commentator, and former animator who gained prominence for their precursory Minecraft appeal, referring the Minecraft gold ingot item as "budder"... read more

I don't know, I used to be a fan, but as time went on, you can obviously see how formulaic the whole channel has become. Not to mention, he changes who he plays with. We might enjoy their dynamics, but then he switches it up and doesn't give enough time for me to like the new people.

Additionally, it's such a big channel. Bigger channels annoy me because they don't listen to fans as much, and they may lower their quality and eventually lose their integrity. Ultimately, they become unfunny, which has happened to him.

9 Keemstar Daniel M. Keem (born March 8, 1982), better known by his online alias Keemstar, is an American YouTuber, podcaster, and streamer. A controversial figure, he is best known for being the host of the Internet popular culture news show DramaAlert, a source for news within YouTube. He is also one of the... read more

He's a cancer. The term cancer is often thrown around loosely, but he has said and done things that could potentially make the people he's targeted want to harm themselves. That's not acceptable. He discloses people's personal information without their consent, as if it's not illegal, and discusses it openly.

He's been accused of racism and domestic violence. If you can think of something morally questionable, odds are he's done it or embodies it.

He's probably stupid and gullible enough to think that the first half of the 500-toothed dinosaur's name rhymes with any of the Winnie the Pooh characters.

10 Shane Dawson Shane Lee Yaw (born July 19, 1988), known professionally as Shane Dawson, is an American YouTuber, writer, comedian, actor, director, musician, and media personality who began making Youtube videos in 2008. He became one of the first people to rise to fame on the video-sharing platform YouTube.

I've seen all of his thumbnails and titles, and they're all the same. For example, HOW TO BE A PIMP features a thumbnail with a big-breasted woman and himself sporting a happy face. There's also an article about him on Encyclopedia Dramatica that mentions a video he made about his recently deceased grandmother, in which he wept openly.

My grandma is still alive and in her 60s, but if she were to die after I've created a YouTube account, I would just be sad. I wouldn't cry because that would probably embarrass me. If I did cry, I would likely edit it out.

Anyway, I can't even bring myself to watch a video on his vlog channel.

The Contenders
11 Annoying Orange

Oh no. I remember when they first started, I actually enjoyed their content. Keep in mind, this was 6-8 years ago. When they started getting so popular that they got their own TV show and then began making gaming videos, it was clear they were just trying to profit off annoying 8-12-year-olds.

At the beginning, I found them somewhat entertaining, but it all went downhill from there.

This should be number one. It's not annoying. It's ugly and not even funny anymore. Has anyone told him what a toothbrush is?

12 LeafyIsHere Calvin Lee Vail (born August 18, 1995), known online as LeafyIsHere or simply Leafy, is an American former YouTuber and former Twitch streamer who, from the years 2011 to 2017, and 2020, made reaction, drama, and gaming videos, but is mostly known for commentary.

It's ironic how Leafy's videos focus on "cringe" when he has one of the most irritating fanbases on all of YouTube. He'll mock someone with autism to the point of almost driving them off the platform but will ignore his own fanbase, which consists of immature individuals telling others to "go drink bleach."

Leafy's videos themselves are dull. If I wanted to hear a reedy-voiced person play a video game and make inappropriate comments about autism and other sensitive topics, I'd attend a high school anime club meeting. His videos aren't bad because they're "not positive and offensive" (although that doesn't help). They're bad because they're just 20-minute rants.

He may have been bullied in high school, but when he starts editing with that trial version of Sony Vegas and churns out more trite content, he suddenly acts courageous online, despite likely being nervous in real-life situations, like ordering from a drive-thru at Burger King.

13 WatchMojo

It's no surprise this channel is on here. If a channel makes all their videos opinionated lists, then people will get mad, saying things like, "This shouldn't be number one. How can these people be so dumb?" or "How was this on the list, but this wasn't? These people obviously aren't qualified to be on YouTube!" There's nothing wrong with the channel. It just suffers from the fact that it has opinions, so everyone with different opinions hates it.

I can't blame whoever added them to this list that made them land on 10. I find some of their videos insulting, like the one that lists the "Worst Pokemon Games," which is offensive to Pokemon fans. They even got terminated for copyright reasons. (In case you never knew about their termination and saw their channel with no sign of it, they did get their channel back.)

14 ImJayStation Jason Matthew Ethier (better known as ImJayStation or JayStation), is a Canadian Internet personality and former YouTuber.

My hatred for this waste of oxygen knows no bounds. He's more than your typical clickbait channel. He makes money off people's deaths, lies to children, and makes fun of gay people, among other things.

I can tolerate bandwagon videos on YouTube and even the cringey ones, but what Jay does is unforgivable. If there is any hope for the human race, his channel will get terminated, or at least get struck by COPPA. Perhaps COPPA could actually do something good for YouTube.

Don't look at his channel. He doesn't deserve any views. Unfortunately, it seems like his channel is still going strong. I'm done with this scumbag.

15 Fred Fred Figglehorn is a fictional character created and portrayed by American actor Lucas Cruikshank. He rose to prominence in the early days of YouTube. In 2013, Cruikshank retired the character because he could no longer do the Fred voice. There was also a Fred movie trilogy that lasted from 2010 to... read more

His voice was like an annoying chipmunk. Then he left and started an adult content channel and now uses profanity as frequently as Shane Dawson. He has pulled off a transformation similar to Miley Cyrus and has become highly unlikable.

He is a weirdo and a moron. I think I lost brain cells while watching his movie series.

Fred was born on April 11, 2001. He is very weird, but he does have more subs. However, he is annoying.

16 T-Series Super Cassettes Industries Private Limited, doing business as T-Series, is an Indian music record label and film production company founded by Gulshan Kumar on 11 July 1983. It is primarily known for Bollywood music soundtracks and Indi-pop music. As of 2014, T-Series is India's largest music record... read more

He uses sub-bots, pirates content, and attempted to sue PewDiePie over a diss track. I'm not the biggest fan of Pewds, and I've never watched his content, but T-Series just steals songs and uses sub-bots, so they definitely don't deserve the love they get.

T-Series just needs to stop. Here is a list of bad things they've done (not including sub bot because there is not enough evidence):

1. Stole people's songs and didn't give them credit
2. They actually sold pirated songs
3. Managed to get canceled
4. Actions taken in the PewDiePie vs T-Series rivalry
5. Called PewDiePie childish because he was trying to keep his record, which he had held for five years
6. Labeled the "Sub to PewDiePie" movement as "spam"
7. Relied on YouTuber CarryMinati to reply to PewDiePie's diss tracks for them, which is ironic considering they're a music channel (NGL, CarryMinati's diss was good)
8. Sued PewDiePie for making a diss track
9. Called PewDiePie a xenophobe and encouraged their fans to believe it.

So yeah, T-Series is pretty bad. - Unnamed Google User Remade

17 Smosh Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla. Anthony Padilla created a website called in 2002. He was later joined by his friend Ian Hecox.

Smosh was good back then. Then it got acquired by a company, and things just went downhill. You go to watch a new Smosh video and you expect it to simply be Ian and Anthony. Then you see all these other people and NOT Ian and Anthony, and you're like, "WHAT IS THIS?!"

It's not even funny anymore. Anthony left, which made the channel take an even bigger dip. Soon, Ian is going to leave, and it's just going to be the company. Then, it'll be gone.

I know a lot of people have said this already, but it's the truth: They were great a few years ago. Now they are the equivalent of two 75-year-old men reflecting on their college party years.

Smosh was awesome back in 2013 and 2014. Now they fall flat, if you will. Every so often, I'll watch a couple of their old videos, but for the most part, it's time to hang it up, guys. You had your fun, Ian and Anthony. Move on.

18 Morgz Morgan Hudson (born: August 6, 2001), better known online as Morgz, is a British YouTuber known for his pranks, challenges, sketches, and vlogs. He is well known throughout the community as YouTube's most infamous prankster and vlogger, creating videos like the Pause Challenge, and known as one of the... read more

He's so bad that his content is good at the same time. It's entertaining in a weird way. As long as my kids don't watch this guy, he can stay on YouTube.

He is not very good when it comes to "challenges." I hate the intro. It's just "OH, HEY GUYS." He isn't good with 24-hour challenges, and for some reason, he's rich or something.

Everyone should know why Morgz is bad by now. He literally makes such cringe content that only a 5-year-old would watch. Period.

19 Jacob Sartorius Rolf Jacob Sartorius (known by his middle name), born October 2, 2002, is an American singer and internet personality, who rose to fame via social media from posting lip-syncing videos on and his Vines (on Vine). In 2016, he released his debut single "Sweatshirt", which reached the Hot 100... read more

There are a lot of bad child singers. In fact, all of them are bad, but Mr. Jacob is the worst. He is rude, annoying, and likely to grow up to be Quagmire. Don't get me started on his singing. His song Sweatshirt is the reason why Van Gogh cut his ear off.

Another young person who fell into a lot of money too early in his life without having to work for it. He's a terrible singer and his dance moves are poor.

I think this kid looks better with glasses - not because it makes him look smarter, but because his original appearance isn't great.

20 5-Minute Crafts

Don't get me started on the ramen hack. For those who don't know, they claimed you could write with a marker on an uncooked block of ramen, and if you press it on a piece of paper, it would leave Chinese text. As an Asian myself, I find this quite offensive.

This is just cheap, unimaginative crap for 3-year-olds to watch. It's literally a content farm with dangerous "hacks." The only real hacks they do is getting bots to like their poorly done videos.

Why is this channel allowed on YouTube? Their "crafts" don't work, and they also post the same videos over and over. This sort of behavior counts as spam and misleading content. Furthermore, some of their crafts are dangerous, such as putting bleach in food, which falls into violating YouTube's "Harmful and Dangerous Content" policy.

21 Chris Chan Christine Weston Chandler (formerly known as Christian Weston Chandler and best known as Chris-chan), is an autistic trans woman who is the creator of the infamous webcomic Sonichu. She was discovered by trolls in 2007, which lead to her retaliating. In 2011, she came out as a tomgirl and started cross-dressing;... read more

I'm autistic, and this man just insults me.

I don't like homophobic straight people.

I am autistic and this man gives us a bad name. Shame on you, Chris Chan. Shame on you.

22 Cocomelon

This is the most overrated channel on all of YouTube, having recently hit 100 million subscribers. MrBeast should have reached that milestone long before Cocomelon.

I am pretty sure they noted the channel.

23 JustinBieberVEVO Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette... read more

Deport him back to Canada permanently. He's a psychopath and talentless. Why is this Ellen DeGeneres doppelganger famous? He can't dance, sing, or simply exist well or worth a damn. He's a culture vulture who doesn't have an identity. Can he go where Vanilla Ice went, please?

Justin Bieber just isn't a good person. He's committed plenty of crimes but has never been punished for them. Plus, his music is bad.

Of course, you can't have a worst list on here without Justin Bieber!

24 Kids React

Kids don't usually act like that. In Kids React, most of them are rude, annoying, and not cute. It was okay in 2011, but now it seems completely forced.

Also, their title for Kids React is awful. Not all of them are little 6-year-old brats screaming at a title intro. I mean, not all the kids are bad. The ones I'm fine with are the older ones, and the younger ones just seem completely forced.

The kids are so stupid and ignorant in these videos, and the teenagers are even worse! How are they so popular? It's great to watch if you like watching BuzzFeed-looking kids make dumb comments about things they know nothing about. It makes me ashamed to be a teenager.
