The youtuber addressed the accusations of rape that have been made against his team
David Dobrik is now speaking up after allegations of rape against his video team and he is now apologizing for it. A report from Business Insider included allegations from a woman who reportedly said she was raped during production on a November 2018 Vlog Squad video.
The same outlet shared that the woman, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the group provided her with alcohol to the point of blacking out. She said she was later involved in group sex with a former Vlog Squad member, but was too intoxicated to consent.
According to People magazine: Last month, another former Vlog Squad member, Seth Francois, spoke out about experiencing sexual assault while participating in the filming for a prank video. In the clip, Dobrik tells Francois he will be kissed by model Corinna Kopf wearing a disguise, but is instead kissed by 45-year-old comedian Jason Nash, a member of the squad.
Dobrik published a video on Tuesday titled "Lets Talk" in one of his channels, being the one that has less followers. During the video he addressed the issue and said that he was truly sorry about it and promised to change, saying that the most important thing for him was to make people happy and have fun with his videos:
"I think with any video I make my main purpose is to make people happy and inspire people and I just never want anything to get in the way of that, I'm sorry if I've let you down and things like that won't happen again and I learn from my mistakes and I also believe that actions speak a lot louder than words. You can take my word for it that I'm going to change but I'll also show you and I'll prove to you that the mistakes I made before won't be happening again."
Speaking about Seth's situation the youtuber said he was deeply sorry about what happened and that he had felt so uncomfortable, adding:
"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, I missed the mark with that one and I'm really sorry — I truly, truly am."
