Congratulations! If you’re a shady guy who is currently going through a public accusation, then you’ve come upon the right video. Today we are going to take a look at one of the most effective tactics that’ll get you out of any situation when the deck is stacked against you…well it’ll at least take some heat off. This simple tactic is to blame the victim. While many think they know what that term means, those same individuals still continue to fall into its trap without even realizing it. Don’t believe me? This video will examine the spat between David Dobrik and former Vlog Squad Member (and friend), Jeff Wittek. The two have been in a public battle since Wittek recently seemed to turn against his former friend. With Wittke’s fans rallying behind him, Dobrik fell into hot water once again. However, David has already won because of this strategy.
