Popular Twitch streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz‘ Hoffman hit back at a viewer accusing him of changing his 3.7 million-followers strong channel into a ‘kid’s channel’ – a label he clearly resented.

Despite rarely showing his face and streaming only one game almost exclusively, Dakotaz has attracted a massive audience, doing so while avoiding controversy and drama.

He lets his gameplay do the talking for him, and says he chooses not to use a facecam so that viewers can be more ‘immersed’ in the action, but one viewer apparently took issue with Dakotaz style of streaming.

Dakotaz has previously spoke out against the “entitled” nature of some Twitch fans.

On May 20, Dakotaz noticed a chatter had suggested that his content was now kid friendly, as though it were a negative, which bemused the streamer, asking “I’m curious, how has our channel turned into a ‘kid’s channel’?”

“Where’s your logic [for that]? I don’t understand it bro,” Hoffman continued, clearly insulted by the suggestion, “What do you mean I’m a kid’s channel bro? 

“How about you shut your bitch ass up – is that ‘kid’ enough for you bro? Stop trying to tell me what my channel is, you don’t even understand Twitch.”

It’s not the first time that Dakotaz has taken a no-nonsense approach to negative viewers in his chat, previously bemoaning the wave of ‘entitlement’ which is so common on the platform, especially with young viewers.

When another fan accused him of ‘near criminal behavior’, simply because he streamed Apex Legends, recommended it to viewers, and then went back to Fortnite Battle Royale, he told the viewer in question to “go screw yourself”.

He may have lost a viewer or two in the process, but his attitude has gained him plenty more along the way. He’s never afraid to speak his mind and be honest, even with his own fanbase.

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.

There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.

This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.

Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.

This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.

Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
