It appears that Youtube is removing its “dislike” button, and some say they are doing it because they want to protect Joe Biden because his videos are being inundated with millions of downvotes.
According to Twitter account Breaking911, Youtube says it is getting rid of the downvote button “at the request of content creators.”

Youtube’s up and down thumbs have been in place for about a dozen years already. But the sudden decision to dump the downvote has many wondering if Youtube is trying to protect Joe Biden.
