Jeff Wittek has been using his YouTube platform to deliver a multi-part documentary about losing his left eye. Last summer David Dobrik invited his vlog squad team to Utah to take part in excavator stunts in the middle of a lake. David was operating the tractor during an accident that resulted in multiple life-threatening injuries. After several surgeries, Jeff was hopeful that he could have normal functioning in his eye, but the final episode that debuted Friday night starts off with the heartbreaking revelation that he’s lost vision and movement in his left eye months after the accident.

Jason Nash’s relationship status has turned into a bit of a side drama in the middle of the serious circumstances surrounding Vlog Squad members Durte Dom’s r*pe of a young woman in 2018. Jason, who is an older member of the Vlog Squad often seen right next to David Dobrik, stirred up old wounds when he called and messaged his ex Trisha Paytas. Trisha did not respond, and instead aired out his messages on her Frenemies podcast.
There is a popular TikTok account that until very recently went by the name “Daniel Dobrik” and features a guy who looks startingly like the notorious YouTube celeb who’s currently being cancelled over some very serious allegations and critiques about the entire culture surrounding his content. The David doppelganger has stated many times that he is David Dobrik’s brother, but is this really true?
Friday morning Jeff Wittek uploaded a video simply titled “.” where he apologizes to SA victim Hannah for discrediting her in his now-deleted video “MY TRUTH.” He also explains that he’s can no longer see well out of his left eye and has lasting damage from the accident this past summer.
During Tuesday’s two Frenemies podcast response to the David Dobrik apology, Trisha Paytas let it slip that her ex-boyfriend, and close associate of David, Jason Nash has been trying to get in touch with her. The live chat asked Trisha to elaborate, so she obliged. Trisha says Jason, who has not spoken to her in years, tried to call her multiple times. When she did not pick up, he sent her text messages and Instagram DMS, which she did not respond to either, but shared on the podcast.
Monday night David Dobrik released a more direct and detailed apology on his main YouTube channel than the one he released last week on his less popular VIEWS channel after he lost his brand sponsors and partnerships. Is he being misleading in this more emotional apology?
A bombshell article published March 16 by Business Insider makes some serious allegations against David Dobrik-led Vlog Squad member Dominykas Zeglaitis, aka Durte Dom, and exposes the dark side of the highly popular and, seemingly, fun-fueled group of creators.
In the past weeks, David Dobrik has come under mounting heat over pranks and behaviors associated with his past YouTube blogs. His friend Scotty Sire spoke out in defense of David’s intentions in a now-deleted video, but David has remained silent until a few hours ago when he uploaded a 2:31 minute video to his podcast channel following an explosive Insider article that alleges former vlog squad member Dom Zeglaitis raped a woman in 2018.
The layers of Vlog Squad drama continue to unfold as Durte Dom (real name Dom Zeglaitis) speaks about his own experience in the David Dobrik-led powerful social media group that’s currently imploding. In the almost 15-minute video, Dom expresses his own opinions about David Dobrik, including his perspective on the Seth Francois situation. “Just because somebody might think they’re fine with it the first day … and then year later they’re not fine with it, doesn’t mean you can discredit them,” Dom points out.
Vlog Squad member Scotty Sire recently published a video, simply titled “Hi,” in defense of the group’s leader David Dobrik surrounding sexual assault allegations made by Seth Francois. He has since made a Notes App Twitter apology for the video, and taken it down.
Seth Francois is the latest former David Dobrik friend and Vlog Squad member to speak out about mistreatment during his time with the popular group. Seth has previously apologized and spoken out about his involvement in racist jokes and is now opening up about what he describes as “sexual assault,” when he was pranked into making out with Jason Nash without his consent.
There’s a difference between being heavily influenced by someone else’s ideas and being a direct copy of them. Tik Tok celeb Alex Warren has potentially crossed that boundary with YouTube vlogging legend David Dobrik. Warren is just not creating short, jokey, fast-paced vlogs with his friend group/business partners, he’s going as far as to mimic David’s iconic laugh, vocal inflections and word choices.
