YouTube's New Rewind Apologizes For Last Year But Still Misses The Mark

Remember last year's cringey YouTube Rewind? It's hard not to. The video was the most disliked video in the history of the website. This year, YouTube has decided to repent for their sins and play it safe - with a whole lot of numbers. Instead of getting creative, the new video is more of a montage of the most statistically "liked" videos, creators, and channels. It even features controversial creator PewDiePie

Though the new YouTube video is decidedly less controversial than 2018's, the viewer response has done nothing but prove that people will never be happy. Commenters are already decrying the site's move to stick to numbers, as well as its absence of memes and deceased YouTuber Etika. The general consensus is that it's a cop-out video reminiscent of the "Top Ten" videos that are so popular on YouTube. The videos dislikes already dwarf its likes. With responses like this, we have to wonder what they'll come up with next year.

Popular Youtuber Etika Found Dead In New York City

The NYPD's search for 29 year old Desmond 'Etika' Amofah has come to a tragic end. The New York Police Department confirmed earlier today that a body found in the East River was that of the allegedly troubled Youtuber. The police began searching for the popular live-streamer on June 20th following Amofah's disappearance, and before that, the uploading of a chilling video in which he revealed his suicidal thoughts. Many fans were hopeful that this was a moment of  being "overdramatic," similar to a stunt he had pulled in 2018.Things began taking a less hopeful turn when his belongings were recovered, scattered around the Manhattan Bridge. 

Following news of Etika's demise, many peers and fans took to Twitter and Youtube to share their shock, stories of happier times, and to implore people to pay attention to mental health.
