Bieber’s ‘Baby’ Will Hit 500m Views Today; It’s Also The Most Hated Video on YouTube
Teenage musician Justin Bieber will see his music video Baby surpass 500 million views on YouTube today or tomorrow, making it the first video ever to do so. Bieber’s Baby is now far ahead of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance, which is #2 at 360 million. Only 4 other videos on the site have been viewed even half as much as Baby.
Where Bieber dominates the most, however, is in how much his videos are disliked by YouTube viewers. YouTube doesn’t provide the option of viewing by most disliked but we analyzed the 150 most viewed videos on the site and here’s the harsh truth: Bieber stars in 5 of the top 6 most disliked videos on the site. The #1 most disliked video on YouTube is Baby, with 1.1 million dislikes. That’s an incredible amount of dislike! In fact, it’s 1 million more dislikes that the #2 most disliked video on the site – Bieber’s Never Say Never, which has just under 100 thousand dislikes. We’ve posted a chart below of the top 10 most disliked videos on YouTube, which you can ponder while listening to Justin Bieber’s Baby.
And now, Baby. I wonder how much the pre-roll ad for this costs. While you’re here, don’t forget to check out our post on the Top 10 YouTube Videos of All Time, where you can view them all on one handy page.
