Seth Francois Josh Nash, David Dobrik, Sexual Assault
Aside from the racist jokes, Seth Francois shared that he was most hurt and “still experiencing trauma” by the prank played on him by Josh Nash. He shared,
“Honestly didn’t realize how much that situation affected me until the beginning of last year when COVID happened. I remember sitting in my room in Atlanta and I was thinking to myself, That video was wrong. I just felt like that shouldn’t have happened to me.”
Over the video titled “HE THOUGHT HE WAS KISSING HER!! (SUPER CRINGEY)”, Seth was pranked by Josh, where Seth was tricked into kissing another Vlog Squad member, Corinna (who in fact was Josh in disguise).
According to Seth he never gave consent to the kiss with Nash. He knew that it felt “wrong” and decided to call a sexual assault hotline. To which, he was answered,
“’I’m sorry you were sexually assaulted.”
Seth then immediately broke down and called his mother and some of his close friends to share what happened to him. Later, he talked to David and Nash about it but instead of acknowledgment, they offered him money.
Though Seth left the Vlog Squad in 2018, he shared that the reason for him to speak now was to “teach a lesson” about the abuse of power and help others who experience similar “trauma”.
