Rebecca Black’s "Friday" Pulled From YouTube?

Rebecca Black’sFriday” the much-maligned but still catchy pop music video that’s taken the web by storm, has passed into nothingness. The video was removed from YouTube by the original publisher (Black’s record label, Ark Music Factory) as of 4 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Love it or hate it — and chances are, you hate it — Rebecca Black’s music video “Friday” had racked up an impressive 64 million YouTube views since its inauspicious debut last month. However, when it comes to sentiment, “Friday” was killing it, and by “it” we mean “any feelings of charity or kindness you may feel toward Ark and its teenie bopping popsters.” of course.

Friday” had racked up around 1.189 million dislikes; Justin Bieber’sBaby” its nearest competitor for the dubious honor of “most hated video” has only 1.162 million dislikes on YouTube.

But Bieber’s clip had more than 501 million views. When you do the math, that means Rebecca Black’s video was actively disliked by almost 1.88% of viewers who saw the video. “Baby” is disliked by a mere .23%.

We’ve written about Black’s first foray into Internet fame a few times, and not everything we’ve had to say has been nice. After all, the teen singer was given only the briefest radio play, and she reportedly didn’t even make that much money from the video, especially when one considers the amount of exposure and emotional pain that comes along with such an ordeal.

We’ll keep an eye on the video’s URL the clip may pop up again shortly. In the meantime, we’re reaching out to Ark for a statement on why the video was pulled in the first place.
