EA's Worst Reddit Comment Set a World Record

I knew you could set a world record for just about anything these days but this is a bit ridiculous. Funny, but ridiculous.

Getting into the Guinness World Records is usually cause for celebration. Electronic Arts (EA) might think differently about its apparent inclusion in the 2020 edition of the book, however, because the record it set was for the most-downvoted comment on Reddit. The comment in question was made in response to the Star Wars Battlefront II loot box controversy of 2017 and received more than 683,000 downvotes from the platform's outraged players.
