Zac Efron You Tube promotion draws ire from fans

It is a comment indicative of YouTube's fractious relationship with its users of late.

The video-sharing site saw its annual highlights package become the most-disliked video of all time in December 2018, while in February 2019 it was criticised after deleting the accounts of several prominent YouTubers.

Now a new storm is brewing, and it centres around A-list celebrities.

Zac Efron is the latest Hollywood star to crossover to YouTube, with his first video published on 30 March 2019.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron star in the reboot based on the hit '90s TV show. Johnson plays Mitch Buchannon, the head lifeguard famously played by David Hasselhoff, while Efron is Matt Brody, who was played by David Charvet on the long-running series.

The movie is set in Miami. Efron and Johnson are on a mission to find out why dead bodies are being dumped on their beach. The two-minute trailer features gunfire, explosives and, of course, the iconic slow-motion beach runs.

Biles returned the favor, planting a couple on the movie star.

The actor recently made headlines for some negative remarks he made about his character from the film. The Men's Fitness June 2016 cover star didn't seem to be the biggest fan of Troy Bolton (his character) telling the mag of his younger self, "I step back and look at myself and I still want to kick that guy's ass sometimes."
