YouTube Co-Founder Slams Company's Removal Of 'Dislike' Button As "Stupid Move"



The co-founder of YouTube has labelled the company’s decision to
remove the ‘dislike’ button as a “Stupid move.”

Jawed Karim, who sold his stake in YouTube for $65 million in 2006,
was the first person to ever upload a video to YouTube and he used
that video to comment on the scrapping of the ‘thumb down’ button.

In the description section of the video, "Me at the zoo", which shows
the engineer visiting San Diego zoo 16 years ago, Karim edited in the
comment “When every YouTuber agrees that removing dislikes is a stupid
idea, it probably is. Try again, YouTube.”

YouTube announced it will hide ‘dislikes’ from videos, reasoning that
it will curb “creator harassment,” yet critics pointed out that this
is merely a way of removing the huge amount of downvotes on videos
posted by the Biden administration.

    Gee, I wonder why they're about to hide dislikes.

With the recent popularity of the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ meme, this seems
like another transparent attempt to protect the plunging popularity of
Biden, whose approval rating just fell to a record low.

As we previously highlighted, despite being “the most popular
president in U.S. history” after his *totally not unusual* vote
record, Joe Biden didn’t fare too well on YouTube in the days after
his inauguration, where every single video posted to the official
White House channel received massive downvote ratios.

Thanks to YouTube, those ratios will apparently never be a problem again.

However, some have suggested that YouTube may be backflipping on the
decision, with some dislikes that disappeared now reappearing on

As News.au.com noted, the most hated video on the platform, YouTube’s
own ‘rewind 2018’ video, had it’s awful ratio removed recently...

..., but then it reappeared...
