Why is r/unpopularopinion such a bad subreddit?

1 answers


r/unpopularopinion is filled with either popular opinions or opinions that are unpopular because they’re stupid and probably fake.

I have tried posting an unpopular opinion and a lot of people tended to hate on it, because they disagreed. There are some who upvoted anyways, because they disagreed with it, which is exactly how the subreddit should function.

If I post something controversial on there, it will get around 10 upvotes and 7 comments from people who were disappointed it wasn’t something popular. Instead of upvoting an unpopular opinion, people tend to downvote it, which makes the subreddit look bad.
