The one of the popular social media personality appeared on the H3H3 podcast alongside Ethan and Hila Klein, where he unveiled the secret about David Dobrick, his departure from The Vlog Squad, and brief the reason that prompted him to do so.

Revealing about the main reason behind his move, Francois re-told the situation, which he described as “legitimately painful”.
“A large chunk of it being related to being in the Vlog squad and being in David’s content. I decided to move to Atlanta because when I was in LA, after dealing with that video with Jason.

In light of these shocking allegations, Twitter was disgusted by the many responses, most of which issued a clarion call for Dobrick’s cancellation.
Seth Francois revealed how David Dobrik forced him to make “racist stereotype jokes” and make out with Jason Nash
A familiar face in Dobrik’s popular squad, The Vlog Squad, Francois’ collective squad first made headlines in June 2020, when he expressed unease over participating in the video, realizing he had strong racist ventures.
In his video titled “Accountability to all content creators”, François apologized for his past works in a video for The Vlog Squad, where he frequently participated in, or rather, encountered many racist jokes.
While he avoided directly naming anyone, he urged those responsible for creating all such material to take accountability for their actions. He also highlighted the racially charged narrative that was often created under the guise of comedy.
In addition to being forced to follow the “racist stereotype”, Seth also went on to reveal his command at the hands of David Dobrik and Jason Nash during his recent appearance on the H3H3 podcast:
“It was a video where David set up with Jason Nash and Corinna (Kopf) and said that I was supposed to do a make out scene with Corinna and he was gonna have her in an old man mask and then switched her out with Jason Nash. After Jason pulled off his mask, I realized that I was just touched by someone I did not consent to ”
He also said that it was not easy to talk about the experience, especially given that it is a case of harassment.
In the wake of the allegations, several internet communities took their official Twitter account to condemn Dobrick’s actions.
David Dobrik is literally so problematic— deleting your old clips doesn’t hide the fact you guys bullied big Nik for being crippled, saying the n-word, making racist jokes, forcing Seth to kiss Jason without his consent, etc. You of all people should know to do better.

Shoving a camera in someone’s face, especially if you were their boss is going to make you feel like you have to do something even if it goes against what you really want. Seth never consented and David Dobrik’s content is coming after the demise and humiliation of other’s.
