From the start of 2010, YouTube uploads a video highlighting the best and sometimes the worst of the year. The first addition was a plain video of the top ten countdowns. However, over time they progress into a huge production including well-known YouTubers, visual effects, music, and celebrities.

The harder YouTube tried, the harder it was to guess what they were going to include. It leaves fans looking forward to seeing what each year was filled. However, YouTube Rewind 2018 has received the most criticism of all time. Making their way to the top of the most disliked video of YouTube with 84% thumbs down.

Here are some things YouTube could have done.

1. Less Fortnite

Although Fortnite blew up in 2018, there was just too much content about it. Not many people enjoy the overload of Fortnite references of the game and victory dances. It seem like a distraction from including other popular trends in 2018. Overall, it was a thumbs down decision from YouTube.

2. KSI vs Logan Paul

YouTube fail to include the biggest fight of 2018: KSI vs Logan Paul. Fans were intrigued with their beef online and when they were going to take it to arena many were hype to see the fight go down. 1 million users watch the coverage of their boxing and if that's not big enough to be included in the YouTube Rewind 2018 then no one wonder why they have the most dislikes.

3. More Music Variety

YouTube Rewind 2018 had popular music in the video but they forgot many artists who earn a spotlight. They had Cardi B and Kpop music but where was BTS? BTS has grown the most this year by earning many music awards and being the second most-streamed group on Spotify. Their fans were disappointed to not see their recognition in the video. Kpop was a big deal in 2018 but where was Travis Scott big hits or Ariana Grande music video blowing up on the internet? Forgetting a lot of top hit songs in 2018 was a big NO from the fans.

4. Cringy

There was too much dialogue in the video that it seem force and cringy. For instance when Will Smith mentions "Yaaaahh, I would want Fortnite and Marques Brownlee" that it sound awkward and someone told him to say it. Instead of giving shoutouts to what should be part of YouTube Rewind 2018 they could have thought of a more creative way to present this years trends.

5. Big YouTubers

There were popular YouTubers like James Charles, Liza Koshy, sWooZie, Dolan Twins, etc. However, they forgot most of the YouTubers were fans were looking forward to see. Shane Dawson's conspiracy theories and documentaries had a big contribution to YouTube community but never made any reference to him. Pewdiepie is one of Youtube most popular and fastest growing in 19 billion video views. Ricegum started becoming popular when creating roasting videos that fans grew to love and blew up on the internet now with over 10,000,000 subscribers. David Dobrik a big YouTube star from making vlogs with his funny friends grew a lot in the YouTube community and make great contributions that were not mention in YouTube Rewind 2018.

Now all fans can do is leave YouTube Rewind 2018 in 2018 and hope maybe next year they create better content.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

5 Times The Body Positivity Movement Promoted Unhealthy Practices In The Name Of Acceptance

There's a difference between wanting to love your body and promoting an unhealthy lifestyle.

As a thick and curvy girl, I think the body positivity movement is amazing in the way that it advocates for women with different body types to feel confident and be free of self-hatred and doubt. My body type has never been considered the "norm" in any sense. Now, there are plus-size models that I can look up to. It definitely encourages me to try to not be so harsh on myself. Growing up, I didn't have that and I struggled for a long time. Young, adolescent girls that once hated their reflection can now see the beauty inside and out, and that shows that we've made phenomenal progress.

However, I do solemnly believe there's a line between encouraging people to love themselves no matter what the scale says, and flat out promoting an unhealthy lifestyle.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.
