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?

In 2017 Danielle Bregoli was only 13-years-old when she became an Internet meme from an appearance on The Dr. Phil Show. She was sent to Turn-About Ranch for a while following the show and was shocked to find out she’d become so famous.

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 past few weeks have ushered in the fast rise and even more breakneck fall of a previously little-known Tennessee commune, or intentional community, called The Garden when a couple of its members started producing compelling TikToks and inviting anyone and everyone to come visit them. The fact that they published their address on their TikToks and marketed The Garden as a kind of utopia raised red flags for many people as communities like this usually have a vetting process and don’t so blatantly market themselves. This led viewers to investigate The Garden, and the people currently living there, further, and to speculate even harder.

Most “scams” social media influencers are associated with involve faulty or potentially dangerous weight loss products, MLM schemes, products that are of a poorer quality than advertised, etc. These are not harmless, but they are far less severe than outright swindling money directly from followers’ bank accounts using bad checks. This is the type of scam that 22-year-old Instagram and YouTube influencer Kayla Massa pulled on her followers. She managed to get 45 of her followers to trust her enough to gain access to their bank accounts with the promise of bringing them riches. The only people Kayla was interested in enriching were herself and her accomplices. She was able to glean $1.5 million from her scheme before getting arrested this February.
