As much as we love best-of lists, it’s hard not to be fascinated with worst-of lists, too. They appeal to my innate fascination with people’s preferences—especially if those preferences don’t line up with my own. Along those lines, online review hub RAVE Reviews has released data on the most-hated brands in the world. There’s a whole section dedicated to the most-hated fast food brands in every country, and you just know it caught our eye.
Rave Reviews used SentiStrength, a language analysis tool, to scan over a million brand-related tweets and determine whether the overall sentiment toward those brands was negative or positive. RAVE Reviews then compiled the most loathed brands in every country based on “hate rate,” or the highest percentage of negative tweets. (By the way, this is non-food related, but Uber was the most hated brand overall in the United States, at 48.35% negative tweets. Just... something to consider.)
What caught my eye?
I’ll start with some surprises, including one stat that I found particularly entertaining. The most hated fast-food brand in Canada is... Orange Julius. What the hell? That’s so specific! I’ve had the chain’s signature Orange Julius drink a few times, and it’s pretty good considering that it’s basically just a Dreamsicle in a cup. Maybe 47.06% of negative tweeters are be unhappy with themselves, because they decided to go to a place with approximately two things on the menu.
There are still Orange Julius?!! I thought they all disappeared within the ever increasing abandoned malls. And Canada hates them?
That company CAN'T catch a break!
