One of the most popular YouTube videos of all-time has been removed from the website.
Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” which has over 160 million views on YouTube, was recently removed from the website.
The page where her video used to be now has a message saying “this video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Rebecca Black.”
The video turned Black into an overnight teen star this year.
Before being removed, the video went behind a paywall, charging users $2.99 to watch it. But now, but the video is gone entirely.
According to the website TMZ.com, the video was removed as part of an ongoing dispute between Black and Ark Music, which claims to have written the song. Ark Music operated the YouTube account, and put the video behind paywall, and Black responded by having the video removed.
