David Dobrik Ignores Vlog Squad Controversies in YouTube Comeback

David Dobrik, relying on the ol’ “boys will be boys” defense, returned to YouTube on Tuesday night with a brand-new vlog. The video shows Dobrik reuniting with the Vlog Squad (his cast, paid in clout), including Jeff Wittek, who nearly lost his eye in a vlogging accident last year, and Jason Nash, who was accused of sexual assault by former Vlog Squad member Seth Francois earlier this year and still hasn’t acknowledged it publicly. Dobrik surprises them all with a trip to Hawaii in the video. “Are we gonna be vlogging?” squad member Heath Hussar asks. Duh, the tickets didn’t pay for themselves. During the Vlog Squad’s pandemic hiatus, the group was hit with a number of allegations, including sexual assault for a prank on Francois, in which he unknowingly made out with Nash twice, and rape, against Dominic Zeglaitis (a.k.a. Durte Dom) made by an underage fan who alleged in a March Insider report that the incident was used as a bit in Dobrik’s vlog. Dobrik acknowledged the allegations in two apology videos in which he distanced himself from Zeglaitis. (Zeglaitis commented on a recent Instagram post of Dobrik’s, saying thanks for including him in the new vlogs, but his involvement has not been confirmed.)

Jeff Wittek Reveals There Was a Time He Thought David Dobrik Hurt Him "On Purpose"

In the latest episode of Jeff Wittek's YouTube docuseries recounting his life-threatening injury, the YouTuber finally sits down with David Dobrik to discuss the accident. Following Jeff's release from the hospital, he and David didn't talk for a month, despite David's role in the incident. David admitted that at first he "didn't know how to navigate" the situation. "It's a little awkward for both of us," he said. "It's not something that you can just sit down with a person once and be like, 'OK cool, it's over.' All I want to do is figure out ways to help, but I don't want to make it worse."
