What the "Expose" of David Dobrik Actually Reveals About Cancel Culture

  • Published on:  2/5/2019
  • Last week, I made a video about cancel culture. The main premise of the video was to showcase the trivial things people get offended by these days. Due to that topic being sensitive, a minority of people misunderstood my message. Many misconstrued it as “public criticism of all sort should be frowned upon”. This is not the case. Today, I want to clear that message up by examining the latest person to be “canceled”. We will be looking at the drama between Trisha Paytas, Jason Nash, David Dobrik, and what Trisha has attempted in order to “cancel” the two. Hopefully my thoughts will be better understood by breaking down this latest example of “cancel culture”.

    VINE people, They come from Vine. I'm sure you've heard about other Viners on Youtube, I don't have to mention them. As a plus, Josh Peck from Drake and Josh is part of the Vlog squad too.

  • Same I was told by a couple friends. I go off YouTube for a bit and all the drama starts

    Solid video Donna. Internet culture is becoming more volatile every day. I think a large part of it is the lack of friction when it comes to impulse control. Twitter being a primary example. There is no barrier to broadcasting anything that pops into your head, even if it is a horrible idea, and nobody asked your opinion. As a result, people put themselves in a position where those words are on the record and held against them years later.In IRL if they knew they were absolutely going to be heard and...

  • I completely agree. People have to do wild things to get views on social media and they don’t know to stop and ask if it’s a good idea. Also weird that comedy has evolved like friends was funny but people say it’s too offensive yet people make these rude remarks like you’d say in the vlogs but people overlook it

    Just to correct u David doesn’t actually make money from his videos. They get demonetized due to the content he puts out. He makes his money through other means like merch and his podcast and probably SeatGeek sponsorship.

    +SENORITA YUMYUM social blade is an estimate based off of views. It has no way to tell if a video is demonetized or not.

    Isabel Ayala hey guys seatgeek is a an app that...

    I truly feel like not enough people are talking about the Brandon situation. It seems like people are avoiding it on purpose even though it was proven that his girlfriend was underage when they got together. The fact that David, if not the whole vlog squad could've been complicit in statutory rape and so many people are preoccupied with the irrelevant details of this situation is honestly astonishing. This should be the main, if not the only thing we should be talking about.

    M M Your mindset is so disgusting. She wasn’t the age of consent. The age of consent in California is 18.

    I was hoping you’d do a video on this

    You're such a kind man Zach!

  • ickky toe (Feb 9, 2019)

    I never knew he was into these type of videos wow

  • Dee Gee (Feb 8, 2019)

    Why is it bad if Brandon's gf was 17.5, but totally fine if she was 18.1? Either way it may be cutting it close maturity wise. But ultimately who cares. She's not hurt.

  • Gloria (5 days ago)

    +Dee Gee I hope you're right. It's just so hard to tell with people you don't know, you know?

  • Dee Gee (5 days ago)

    Gloria plus if anyone's gonna hurt her, I think she is. Bc she seems to wear the pants in their relationship.

    Trisha does this stuff to stir up views/drama. If people don't see how she does this then damn people are blind. She did it with the 100 layers thing, then the "break-up" now this, She makes a ton of money off it so why not. Anyways cancel culture has gotten out of hand. People get super offended over thoughts these days. "oh you thought something racist 40 years ago? You're cancelled!" Our society has become an over sensitive drama queen.

  • Jacey Evans (5 days ago)

    I’ve always hated herBefore I’d even watched one of her videos

  • Omar (6 days ago)

    And she wants people to sympathize for her since that makes her feel better when the world treats her how she treats others.

  • Roxanne Lavender (Feb 6, 2019)

    Was she really trying to 'cancel' David though? Or was she literally just venting on camera, like she always does about all kinds of stuff.

  • DrowsyDude (Feb 11, 2019)

    Uh, she brought up shit that had nothing to do with that situation. Yes she was trying to start something, she wasn't just venting.

  • DarkMaster706 (Feb 7, 2019)

    I truly think that people just got on the drama bandwagon. Tea channels and people were just talking about this without context.Trisha is famous for exposing people, but also for just venting and crying, maybe that video was a little bit of both
