DAVID DOBRIK RELEASES SECOND APOLOGY VIDEO: “I’VE LET A LOT OF PEOPLE DOWN”

A SECOND RESPONSE.

Following his March 16 apology, Dobrik released a video responding to the controversies surrounding him and the Vlog Squad.

WHAT WAS IT ABOUT?

The majority of these include sexual assault allegations leveled against former Vlog Squad star ‘Durte Dom.’

“I fully believe the woman that came out against Dom and said she was sexually assaulted by him.”

“I got consent to post the video, but even though I got consent, I should have never posted it. What I understand now… is she sent that text because she felt like she had to, and that’s f**ked up.”

- DAVID DOBRIK

The YouTube star revealed he would be “taking a short break” from social media.

“It doesn’t feel right to go back to posting how I had been, and it doesn’t feel right to go dark because I love what I do. But I feel like it’s important to show that change is possible and I’m learning.

- DAVID DOBRIK

“I didn’t reach out to any of these people, and it breaks my heart knowing that I was doing all this stuff while there were people still really hurt by what I made.”

The backlash has seen Dobrik lose sponsorships with Electronic Arts, HBO, and more.
