Why Is This Guy So Angry About BuzzFeed?
Are you familiar with the website BuzzFeed? Of course you are. It’s 2013. So if you have the Internet, then you’ve probably checked out BuzzFeed at least once. It’s a website that is devoted to making lists about, well, a little bit of everything. From lists about turning 30 to lists about attending public school, BuzzFeed has a list for everything. And while most of the lists are pretty silly, there are quite a few that go viral and get lots of attention for the site.
That attention isn’t always positive, though. In fact, there are a lot of people out there who hate BuzzFeed. They hate the fact that the lists contain stolen images. They hate the fact that most of the lists read like they were written by 10-year-olds. And they hate the fact that there are so many lists. So. Many. Lists. And the guy in the video below just might be the biggest BuzzFeed hater ever. His name is Maddox and he runs The Best Page in the Universe. And he hates—like, HATES—BuzzFeed. It’s actually pretty insane to see him talk about it for a few minutes. Just watch his video:
It’s difficult to argue with a lot of the points that he makes. BuzzFeed can be a real buzzkill at times thanks to some of the lists that they run. But we’re also not sure why Maddox is so mad. One of the reasons why BuzzFeed is so successful is that they are so polarizing. And his video pretty much just solidifies that and showcases why so many people love BuzzFeed. It’s mindless entertainment.
Do you think BuzzFeed is as stupid as Maddox does? Furthermore, are you as outraged about the success of the BuzzFeed site as he is? Let us know what you think about the site in the comments section below.
