YouTube star Casey Neistat recently revealed he hasn’t spoken to David Dobrik in over a year after releasing his documentary on the controversial figure on South by Southwest.
Casey Neistat is one of the original YouTubers. With over 12.4 million subscribers, he is best known for his past daily vlogs in New York City. Most recently, however, he has been working hard on a full-fledged documentary.
Recent allegations against David Dobrik linked to the Vlog Squad have made the 25-year-old a hot topic – so much so that Neistat has made him the focus of its documentary.
Since that documentary premiered at SXSW on March 12, Neistat further revealed that he hasn’t engaged with Dobrik in over a year due to the project.
Neistat hasn’t spoken to Dobrik in over a year
In a recent interview at SXSW, Neistat revealed he hasn’t spoken to Dobrik in over a year after former Business Insider journalist Kat Timbarge exposed Dobrik in relation to sexual assault allegations in March 2021.
“You know he and I had quite a bit of contact after Kat Timbarge reported after her article in Insider what the big disruptor was,” Neistat said.
He also claimed it was the “catalyst for change” that was the focus of his documentary. “The last time he and I spoke was just after that last interview,” Dobrik told SXSW.

Aside from not speaking to the 25-year-old YouTube star, Neistat also confirmed that Dobrik did indeed watch the documentary but was cautious about telling SXSW how the vlogger felt about it. “I think he’s probably better at answering that question than I am.”
While there’s no telling when Neistat’s documentary Under The Influence will be available to the public, we do know it will be available for private viewing at SXSW until March 16, 2022.
