David Dobrik Apologizes Following Vlog Squad Sexual Assault Allegations

David Dobrik is reacting to allegations.

The 24-year-old YouTuber issued an apology video on Tuesday night (March 16), addressing allegations that a member of his “Vlog Squad” drugged and raped an extra from a video shot in 2018.

The anonymous accuser “Hannah” came forward to Business Insider, claiming 23-year-old Vlog Squad member (better known as Durte Dom) got her drunk when she was 20 years old and sexually assaulted her after she came to the group’s house to film. She has not yet contacted the police, according to the report.

In the apology video, David said “consent is something that’s super, super important to me.”

“Whether I’m shooting with a friend or shooting with a stranger, I always make sure that, whatever the video I’m putting out, I have the approval of that person.”

He also said he “chose to distance” himself from Dom and other former associates who are no longer part of his circle because he doesn’t “align with some of the actions and I don’t stand for any kind of misconduct, and I’ve been really disappointed in some of my friends, and for that reason I’ve separated from a lot of them.”

He also spoke to claims made by former Vlog Squad member Joseth “Seth” Francois, who said he was tricked into kissing YouTuber Jason Nash in a video, and claimed he was told that he was being blindfolded to kiss a female member of the Vlog Squad.

“In my case, it’s blatant… the point of the video [was] to sexually assault me,” he said in the allegation.

“With the Seth situation, I’m sorry to Seth, because like I said, I just want to make videos where everybody in it — whether you’re participating or watching — is enjoying and having a good time. And I missed the mark with that one. And I’m really sorry. I truly, truly am.”

David went on to say that actions speak louder than words, and he will “show you and prove to you the mistakes I made before won’t be happening again.”

David Dobrik also recently made headlines for his new purchase.
