YouTube Cancels Rewind Video For 2020

YouTube has decided not to move forward with their annual YouTube Rewind compilation video for 2020.

The video platform announced the news in a note shared on Thursday (November 12).

“Since 2010, we’ve ended the year with Rewind: a look back at the year’s most impactful creators, videos, and trends. Whether you love it-or only remember 2018- Rewind was always meant to be a celebration of you,” the company wrote.

“But 2020 has been different. And it doesn’t feel right to carry on as if it weren’t. So, we’re taking a break from Rewind this year,” they continued. “We know that so much of the good that did happen in 2020 was created by all of you. You’ve found ways to life people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. You made a hard year genuinely better. Thank you for making a difference.”

While a lot of people were upset by the news, some praised YouTube’s decision.

“You guys support us in so many ways!! We all totally understand!!” Lele Pons replied.

“Yeah, this sounds like the right call,” Hank Green wrote.
