Everything Sucksism.

I've been looking for a phrase to capture this attitude, and here it is, thanks to The Onion's A.V. Club.

"Another reason I’m pursuing this project is to refute what I like to
call the “Everything Sucksism” afflicting popular culture, a cheap
adolescent nihilism that delights in taking down celebrities and
pop-culture entities that are already walking punchlines."

I would argue that it goes farther than celebrities and popular culture. It may have started there, but it's far afield now.
