YouTube is cancelling Rewind for 2020.
Every year, YouTube releases a video series at the end of the year to recap on the monumental happenings of that year. These videos are an overview and a recap of each year’s viral videos, events, trends, and music. This has been happening since 2010 and is something everyone in the know, globally, looks forward to. Except this will not be the case this year.
“2020 has been different and it doesn’t feel right to carry on as if it weren’t. So we are taking a break from Rewind this year.” Wrote a representative through the official YouTube Twitter account. This might be a smart and sensitive thing to do because 2020 has not been a great year for most. Most people are really trying to forget the year altogether, so this seems like the best move on YouTube’s part. “We know that so much of the good that did happen in 2020 was created by all of you. You’ve found ways to lift people up, help them cope, and make them laugh. You made a hard year genuinely better.” YouTube has said.

Here’s to hoping that 2021 will be a much better year and filled with memories we will want to look back on and Rewind.
