UNITED STATES.- The sad news has arrived for those who expected the famous YouTube Rewind. The event that discovers the highlights of the most successful youtubers, rising stars and videos with millions of views has been cancelled. 2020 has destroyed one of the traditions of Youtube, so his fans have been extremely unhappy, and no wonder.
Although it is true that 2020 was very difficult due to the context that has been experienced, the platform itself has taken the opportunity to give the necessary explanations. So, Youtube has exposed his reasons for “breaking the hearts” of his fans by canceling this event that was active since 2010 and that had become an icon for the digital world and, above all, for what is within and on the periphery of the most influential personalities in the world.
Of course, the premise of this sad decision has a name that is, to some extent, somewhat obvious: the coronavirus pandemic. The health crisis has had a terrible impact on everyone’s plans and, of course, it has also had a negative impact on YouTube, who has decided to take things easy and take a breath, perhaps to return with more energy in 2021, if Covid-19 yields, of course.
Therefore, through a statement in Twitter was that the company expressed: “Since 2010, we ended the year with Rewind: a look back at the most impressive creators, videos and trends of the year. Whether you like it, or just remember 2018, Rewind was always a celebration for you. ” Thus, he added that everything has changed due to the pandemic “And we do not feel good about pretending it is not.”
Meanwhile they also assured that they would take a break with the Rewind theme. “We know that much of the good that happened in 2020 was created by all of you. They have found ways to cheer people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. They have had a really better hard year ”. For this reason, let’s hope that 2021 will come, even if it is, a little better than the 2020 pandemic.
