Insider contacted him to comment on this, and he declined.

What has Durte Dom been accused of?

Warning – topics of a sensitive nature discussed below.

Business Insider reported that someone under the pseudonym of Hannah has accused Durte Dom of rape, in an alleged incident that took place in 2018.

She says herself and some student friends went to the Vlog Squad mansion to film a video.

Hannah was unaware of Dom, but her pals are believed to have known that he played a character in the videos that was a sex addict – yet did not know if the students would be having sexual intercourse with him.

At the mansion they were allegedly given alcohol, with friends saying that Hannah in particular was given plenty to get drunk.

Hannah says she was later raped by Dom when she was unable to consent to sex.

Dobrik allegedly filmed her as she entered Dom's bedroom, posting the video days later as a "threesome" plot with the title "SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE PLAYED WITH FIRE!!".

The video was taken down at Hannah's request – but had already been watched five million times.

She also said that her friends were given alcohol, despite being too young to buy it themselves.

Dom has not responded to Business Insider's request for a comment.

However, Dobrik's attorney, Bryan Freedman said in a statement: "David will be addressing his community directly. Anyone who knows him knows he does not condone misconduct in any form.

"Vlog participants provide consent before anything is posted. Whenever consent is retracted, posts are removed.

"Any insinuation of wrongdoing is inaccurate and defamatory."

What did David Dobrik say in response to the allegations?

The Slovakian YouTube star posted a video following the allegations of sexual assault and rape – but did not directly address the alleged incident.

Dobrik said: "Consent is something that's super, super important to me. Whether I am shooting with a friend or I am shooting with a stranger, I make sure whatever video I am putting out I have the approval from that person."

The vlogger also revealed that he was "disappointed with some of his friends" and had "separated from a lot of them" – but did not directly reference any particular incident.

He added: "There's also been moments where I have looked back on videos, and I realized that these don't represent me anymore, and they're hurtful to other people, and I don't want them up."

Dobrik later apologized to his fans, saying: "I also believe actions speak a lot louder than words.

"You can take my word for it that I'm going to change, but I will also show you and prove to you that mistakes I made before won't be happening again."
