Why It Sucks

  1. Massive amounts of clickbait, especially on Facebook.
    • Ironically enough, they claim they don't use clickbait, but they indeed do. [1]
  2. Heavily panders towards extreme liberals.
  3. Their news articles are bad in many ways, from being biased to even stolen from other news sites, as explained here. It also doesn't help that the articles are badly sourced and often inaccurate, as stated by fact check websites.
    • There are even racist articles such as "Why White People Shouldn't Be Allowed to Name Kids", that basically state that whites are a plague to the planet.
    • They also steal ideas from YouTube creators, such as Jaclyn Glenn, as well.
    • Much like with Vice and Gawker, some articles contain inappropriate content, an unnecessary amount of foul language, and misplaced information.
    • They also made outlandish claims such as "watching the Trump debate causes PTSD".
    • They once bashed Taylor Swift, not because of her edginess, but because of her "unwillingness to address whiteness".
    • Buzzfeed has tried to go after the Super Chat system on YouTube, claiming that it monetizes hate and racism.
  4. They report a lot of news articles as "fake" if they can't find any "interesting" news that is happening.
  5. Pointless listicles, as much of it, is more or less the same as others.
  6. They treat their employees poorly and exploits them heavily. Because of this act, many staff members often leave due to the management and treatment of their employees.
  7. Unappealing and cringe-worthy style of covering topics such as the news.
  8. Terrible sense of humor that comes off as corny and dull.
  9. They have a series that creates pointless and unnecessary life hacks, like in 5-Minute Crafts.
  10. Points out the obvious in images for subjects that you already know.
  11. The images itself are even stolen without giving the proper credit to the original creators or photographers.
  12. Targets readers with anti-Trump ads without disclosure.
  13. As a result of spreading fake news, they are being sued by a Russian tech guru.
  14. They defended Jessica Price after she was fired for her toxic behavior.
  15. They have a strange interest in menstruation, which is disgusting.
  16. Heavily panders towards nostalgia.
  17. A long history of smearing and framing people especially anti-SJWs in a dishonest way.
  18. They made an awful SJW channel for Spanish audiences, called Buzzfeed Lola.
  19. Very embarrassing and weird quizzes that make no sense, such as This Alphabet Food Test Will Reveal Your Future Boyfriend.
  20. BuzzFeed reporter Kate Arthur deliberately smeared Tucker Carlson using a photo of the Fox News anchor with a “sex worker.”
  21. BuzzFeed suffered a legal setback in a federal court in Miami on Tuesday in its attempt to fight a defamation lawsuit over its publication of the infamous, and uncorroborated, Russia “dossier” on President Donald Trump in 2018.
  22. They said that there's some "terrible arts", they're "joke arts"! (Proof!)
