David Dobrik is a hugely popular YouTuber – but lately, his channel has gone dark.

Dobrik geared up for the launch of his pizza business ‘Doughbrik’s‘ which launched on November 12, 2022.

He also claimed he had been taste-testing pizza for “months” prior to the opening and this could be one of the main reasons he stepped back from making videos.

His most recent Instagram post was published in November 2023 and posted in celebration of Doughbrik’s first anniversary. Most of his other posts have also been in collaboration with other companies. Although, he has also kept his 10.7 million followers updated on his life and recently posted photos from his 27th birthday party.

The YouTuber has also continued to face the fallout of injuring friend and former Vlog Squad member Jeff Wittek in a 2020 incident where the 32-year-old was injured in a crane Dobrik was piloting.

Wittek sustained severe injuries and has had several surgeries to try and save the vision in his eye. On June 22, Wittek filed a lawsuit against The Vlog Squad leader alleging $10 million in damages, as well as publicly denouncing their friendship and labeling him a “scumbag.”

The Doughbrik’s owner has also had to handle the public sexual assault allegations against former Vlog Squad member Dominykas ‘Durte Dom’ Zeglaitis.

After the allegations surfaced, all of Dobrik’s YouTube channels were demonetized by the platform, and he lost multiple sponsorships. However, after stepping back from the platform, he made a successful return in mid-2021 that saw him launch back into the spotlight.

Although his channel is still massively popular, David hasn’t posted in quite some time, and fans are wondering when he’ll finally make a big comeback.
