Rebecca Renee Black (born June 21, 1997) is an American pop singer and dancer who gained extensive media attention with the 2011 single "Friday". Her mother paid $4,000 to have the single and an accompanying music video put out as a vanity release through the record label ARK Music Factory. The song was co-written and produced by Clarence Jey and Patrice Wilson of Ark Music Factory. After the video went viral on YouTube and other social media sites, "Friday" was derided by many music critics and viewers, who dubbed it "the worst song ever." The music video received around 167 million views, causing Black to gain international attention as a "viral star", before being removed from the site on June 16. Black re-uploaded it in her own channel three months later. -Wikipedia

In my opinion, her video isn't all bad, considering the fact that she'll still totally "new" to the whole music/YouTube/media thing, and in addition to that, it wasn't her intention to make it go huge, or amazingly viral FAST. People judge, so if you're not the son/daughter of a billionaire, they will give you a whole LOT of negatives and only tiny bits of the good side.
I follow Rebecca Black on Twitter, and all her tweets show she's happy and doing very well right now, despite the past of the "Friday" tragedy, which is great, because she has moved on. Plus, she has a music video with KATY PERRY!! Who wouldn't be impressed with that?!
