During the latest episode of his "Impaulsive" podcast, Logan Paul weighed in on the cancelation of David Dobrik after the latter's sexual assault scandal.
The 25-year-old YouTuber is known to be friends with Dobrik, who recently lost major sponsorships and thousands of subscribers in the wake of an explosive sexual assault scandal that rocked the entire Vlog Squad.
Drawing from personal experience, Paul recently opened up on Dobrik's situation. He said,
'Why do apologies come in twos? It doesn't happen overnight, true change takes a f*cking minute. I believe David will make it out of it. David will come back . He's gotta learn, improve and get extremely creative with what he's making because I believe any sort of Vlog squad style of camaraderie content that is David Dobrik style vlogs, will come with a bit of bad taste"
He also mentioned his recent tweet about the Dobrik situation. In his post, Paul reflected on his cancelation after the Japan suicide forest controversy.

During a particular segment of his podcast, Paul spoke about Dobrik's cancelation by referring to his own tweet about taking accountability. He said,
"Keeping the sanctity of the relationship that I have with David because he is a friend and I want him to take accountability and really understand the situation. If you are so shut off to the idea of someone being able to improve and change, what are we doing here ? Making mistakes is so human of us . Allow yourselves to forgive when the time is right. "
