It looks like Jawed Karim, co-founder of YouTube, has left his first comment on YouTube in eight years to slam the new commenting system that Google is rolling out.

Its unclear whether it really is him, but it is the same account that uploaded the first ever video to YouTube (Me at the zoo):

The new comment says, “Why the fuck do I need a Google+ account to comment on a video?”

The new system has struck a nerve among YouTube users, and many are criticizing Google for the move. As we reported, a lot of people really hate it.
