Vlog Squad members have been subjected to severe criticism after an alleged victim accused the YouTubers of "drugging" and "raping" her. In the past week, several more victims have come forward to share their horrific experiences with celebrity YouTubers. On March 21, Jeff Wittek, another member of the gang responded to his name being dragged in the controversy, but it clearly didn't go well for him.

In the video, Wittek tries to clear his name of the latest scandal by saying he wasn't present with the Vlog Squad members on the night when the fellow YouTubers allegedly spiked a minor's drink before Dominykas 'Dom' Zeglaitis aka Durte Dom raped her. However, Trisha Paytas, who has been vocal about the issue since the beginning, called him out during an episode of Freinmies podcast, further accusing Wittek of doing things "worse" than the other Squad members.
