David is yet to comment on brands dropping him. However, in a previous YouTube apology, he said: "Consent is something that is super, super important to me. Whether I’m shooting with a friend or shooting with a stranger, I always make sure the video I’m putting out, I have the approval from that person."
He added: "For people that I don't film with anymore like Dom and the other people that I no longer film with, I chose to distance myself because I don't align with some of the actions and I don't stand for any kind of misconduct."
