This list of most-disliked YouTube videos contains the top 50 videos with the most dislikes of all time, as derived from YouTube charts.

The feature served as a replacement for the previous five-star rating system, which was found to be ineffective because of the rare selection of ratings from two to four stars. Of the 50 videos in this list, 6 also appear in the list of most-viewed YouTube videos and 4 appear in the list of most-liked YouTube videos.

On November 10, 2021, YouTube made dislike counts on videos private, purportedly to "reduce harassment associated with targeted dislike attacks. " The announcement and update was widely criticized by members of the YouTube community, including from creators and YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim, due to visible dislikes allowing users to immediately spot videos that are fraudulent, unhelpful, dangerous, explicit, discriminatory or generally poor-quality. +more However, there are some browser extensions which enable the user to be able to view estimations of current dislikes on videos.
