"Every year YouTube just keeps getting disconnected from its content creators."

YouTube Rewind 2018 is set to become the most disliked video on the video streaming platform and YouTube is at fault, say creators and viewers across the globe.

Accused of making a "politically correct" and "advertiser-friendly" rewind this year, YouTube also faced flak for not including events that truly summed up 2018. Pewdiepie vs T-Series, Shane Dawson, an amateur boxing match between KSI vs Logan Paul? None of it was apparently good enough to make the cut for the rewind. Instead, the bosses at YouTube thought it would be a great idea to include The Pursuit of Happyness star Will Smith, who also happens to be a YouTuber.

People were naturally pissed and while the hate wasn't necessarily directed at Smith, angry folks anyway marched to YouTube and Twitter to express their dismay at YouTube's decision to have the star on-board.

It wasn't just his brief appearance that made the video a cringe-fest, but it was the bizarre grunt that was the most noticeable aspect of his YouTube cameo.

Not one to let go of such golden meme-ing opportunities, Jack Douglass -- aka Jacksfilms, who is famous for his YIAY series, parodies, and music videos -- incorporated Smith's grunt into a rap song and commenters and fans had only one thing to say in response - Yeah uh uh uhhhhhhhhhhh.

Of course, Jack takes several digs at YouTube for taking outrageous decisions and making the 'worst rewind' in the YouTube history.

Here's how it goes: (h/t genius)

The best YouTuber in history

Sit the fa back down, if you disagree

He creator of the year - no mystery

****(woo!) Shane, **** (woo!) Pewds

Yo, here's the tea

He a triple A lister

Number one mister

Best of the best

And poppin like a blister

Will to the S-M-I-T-H

Still lookin like his M-I-B age

Lover father, barely a brother

Youtube's hot but he made it hotter

Family friendly - that's my jam!

This site was for creators

But now it's for my good man
