Reddit users have discovered that the platform’s record for the most-downvoted comment will appear in the 2020 Guinness Book of World Records.
The most-downvoted comment belongs to Electronic Arts, who racked up a score of -667,000 responding to a thread about its 2017 game, “Star Wars: Battlefront 2.”
“Star Wars: Battlefront 2” was embroiled in controversy for featuring “loot boxes” that got users to pay for access to key characters like Princess Leia and Darth Vader.

Since Reddit allows users to vote negatively for posts unlike other social platforms, EA’s comment has been downvoted so widely that it’s made its way into the 2020 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.
