The Vlog Squad, an unofficial creator collective made up of YouTubers in the orbit of David Dobrik, is under scrutiny online after Insider reported a sexual assault allegation against former Vlog Squad member Dom Zeglaitis.
Dobrik was scrapped by 13 backers, including SeatGeek and Chipotle; left Dispo, the app he co-founded; YouTube demonetized its channel, which has been losing views and followers; venture capital firms have cut ties with Dobrik and Dispo; and his podcast has lost sponsors.
But who is the Vlog Squad? The group of friends acts as a revolving door for different creatives to appear in Dobrik’s famous fast-paced 4 minute and 20 second videos. The content frequently features jokes.
Before the recent allegations, Dobrik was well-liked on YouTube, where his main channel’s videos have amassed 8 billion views and 18.5 million subscribers.
Members of the Vlog Squad have been in and out since Dobrik, a former Vine star, began vlogging in 2015. Each member of the group is a star in their own right, with millions of followers on YouTube and Instagram.
Here’s a story from the members of the Vlog Squad, past and present.
