DAVID DOBRIK’S ASSISTANT BREAKS SILENCE: Natalie Mariduena is speaking out about the sexual misconduct allegations involving David Dobrik. In a statement, she said: I've spent a lot of time thinking about the recent allegations and because of the severity, it's taken me time to process. Like many of you, I'm upset and angry and do not condone the behavior detailed in the article or any sexual misconduct/abuse for that matter.” She added: “I want to make it clear that I acknowledge, hear and support those who came forward and I stand by the victims.” The social media star has come under fire for abusive and manipulative behavior. A previous statement issued by attorney read: “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.”
