Karim Responds To Dodie Clark’s Amsterdam Accusations – Amsterdam Video



published: 2018-12-20 03:56:29

In this interview, Karim addresses Dodie’s accusations for the first time in over four years and speaks his truth regarding his trip in Amsterdam with Dodie and Evan Edinger. UPDATE: There will be a follow up addressing other accusations not mentioned in this video. Please allow time with Holidays in check. I understand the video would come off biased no matter what due to the fact that I am interviewing him and I know him, but I did try my best. It is my first interview and I do hope to do more and improve. Thank you for your patience and to those who aren’t coming at my neck!

  2. dodie has spoken out on her channel before about her experiences with abuse and sexual assault/rape (i don’t think she used the word rape in the video but did say sex without wanting/consent sooo) with an ex boyfriend so i wouldn’t blame her for being freaked and thinking karim was taking advantage of her. please don’t criticise her too much for what she said at the time she’s cleared it up in her own comment below 🙁

  3. the part about karim using twitter to his advantage is true. karim definitely wanted their viewers to ship him and dodie romantically together. i remember so clearly, because at the time i was obsessed with dodie and twitter and eveything youtube, karim tweeted a picture of dodie with the caption "dodie is so pretty". then their young audiences immediately started to say how they shipped it and how they were so cute and would be the perfect couple and karim was encouraging that, by liking tweets etc. it was not a "misunderstood" situation, whether he was seeing someone at the time or not. dodie told everyone to please not ship them but karim just ignored that. then soon after dodie posted her video about him and he responded to her so maliciously, with multiple tweets, one asking when she was going to make a video exposing her abusive ex too, as if that would only make it fair. so him saying he's NEVER felt angry about the situation is a lie too. maybe some of what karim said in this video is true, but definitely not all of it.

  4. This kind of makes me laugh because there is so much little hints of people lying in this but it makes me laugh more because there so much drama of being cramped in a bed.

  6. Just wanted to say this interview was fantastic, and I can't wait to see others!

    Best of luck to you Karim, seriously ❤ You did really well at sharing your truth. I hope you have a blessed Xmas and New Year.

  7. okay but why are Alex, Karim and Jason all resurfacing and trying to make people feel bad for them? They were all excommunicated because it was proven that they did despicable things to people and didn’t deserve their platform. Stop using other people’s successes to try and revive your career, it just proves you’ve not matured or learnt from the past.

  8. I really would like Dodie to address this now that no one involved in this situation is a teenager anymore

  9. Why are you bringing this back up it happened years ago??

  10. at the end of the day karim remained friends with veeoneeye & i think that’s all we need to know about him. disgusting man

    Reply
  11. This happened so long ago….. there’s more parts to the story and this is awful and a misrepresentation

  12. where are people getting the idea that she accused him of rape? she chose those trigger warnings because it was a similar topic.

  13. Dodie has had experiences in the past in abusive relationships which, as she was nineteen when the video was made, she would have either still been in or just come out of. She would have clearly been very sensitive towards these kinds of things. As part of her friendship group, he should have known this and been more sensitive towards her. The video was also about him pressuring young, underage girls for sexual images of themselves. It wasn’t just about this situation. I’m sure that wrong things were done on both sides, however, the original video was to do with things that he was doing that were, essentially, illegal.

    Also, Dodie is using the word rape to talk about Karims friend who had recently blown up in the media under accusations of raping a young fan. It is made clear in the video, that dodie has now deleted because she realised that it was wrong and shouldn’t have been handled via the public internet. She’s older now and more mature.

  15. It sounds like it was just a big misunderstanding. I don’t think anyone’s at blame here.

    Reply
  16. my big question is why is he still wearing that god-awful hat four years later?

    Reply
  17. I don’t understand what you wanted to achieve by resurfacing this? It seems to me like you’re bringing up a trauma for views?? Please do correct me here but I feel that this is completely for yourself.

  18. Honestly feel so bad for this kid, you can see he’s a nervous mess. Never heard of this trip before this video but it has definitely turned me off of Dodie, a lot.

    Reply
  19. Okay, right now, after listening to this interview I'm feeling disgusted and sick by just listening to Dodie's songs. She REALLY disappointed me and after a few years of being her true fan, I'm done.

  20. his shaky voice at the end made me tear up. the two possibly felt different truths on the trip, but being silenced or dropped by all your friends, except one but makes a video a month later, basically accusing him of rape (lousy wording, not fully addressing), and then blocking him? that's immature af and no slightly innocent person should live through hell for four years. the whole thing is so biased because evan and her were/are friends and deleting or privatising the video is just fucking shady. thank you edwin for making this video and interviewing him, great video with nice editing, natural conversation so i could focus on other work too. thank you karim for telling us your story, i really hope you won't be bothered about something that seems it was aimed at you, your career and character. have a beautiful happy life.

  21. can i just say, what a stupid lie. he contradicted himself maybe 5 times. sad attempt at trying to make a comeback, hmm shame.

    Reply
  22. the dehydrated state was not they’re fault, he did not say he was forced into drinking.

    Reply
  23. using an extreme accusation but saying they extremely accused him, bit rich?

    Reply
  24. also you cannot clarify whether he did it or not. just bc he said he didn’t do it doesn’t mean he didn’t do it. i can’t stand by someone who wasn’t there insult a witness

    Reply
  25. no normal person just up and compliments someone and tell them they are an amazing person, okruuu

    Reply
  26. WITH ALL DO RESPECT it is a known fact that people who have been through something, like sexual abuse, to do it themselves

  27. note to edwin part.1, don’t get in to stuff when you didn’t know that person back then. people change

    Reply
  28. how do you remember certain things that make you partially seem better but not vital things that would prove her side right. SHADY

    Reply
  29. note to edwin part. 2, stop the mollycoddling bc you like him. ask him this, why do you stutter on questions that would sway the story? or is that all scripted? hmm

  35. My ex boyfriend was a very cuddly guy and he would often cuddle me when we’re together. One time he and his family went on a trip together. They all had to share a room with two beds. His mom and sister shared a bed, he and his dad shared a bed. They all went to sleep and he was woken up by his dad asking him to stop cuddling him in his sleep lol. My boyfriend was so embarrassed. Cuddling in your sleep is a thing.

  36. it’s strange to me that people are blaming dodie or karim, and still nobody is seeing the fault in evan’s actions..?

  37. I'm glad that Dodie agrees that she would handle the situation differently now than when she was age 19. I don't think Dodie should still be putting other people's situations out in the public though, proof or not, I don't think you should let people know on your platform that someone could be a predator, I mean for one it could be false and even if it is true you should report it to the police and let them handle it; the police would probably only let the public know of him if he was missing and need to warn everyone to stay away from them (I'm assuming that Dodie is referring to him coaxing little girls in and manipulating them). I'm not saying Dodie wasn't supposed to block him, but if she did I think it's unfair on him. I also believe he should have tried to reach out and say his story sooner, although scared, I don't think he tried enough. I honestly think Dodie was a little careless with her previous video and at the time she didn't know what impact it could have on Karim for the years to come and I think that they were still kids and something awkward and a little scary happened and at the same time some allocations were being told to Dodie about Karim and Dodie was angry and unfortunately it all blew up and it shouldn't have, but it did. Karim should have tried to speak up more, and Dodie should have been more careful. I hope everyone stays grounded during this. I already see people going crazy because their favourite YouTubers is being accused of something and being painted with off coloured ink but just calm down, it will pass over so just sit back and watch what you will get. Love you Dodie. Stay strong Karim.
