UPDATE 2:50PM PST, June 13

Dr Disrespect has finally broken his silence, speaking out for the first time since receiving his Twitch ban, and getting his E3 pass revoked.

You can view his statement here.

Twitch star Dr Disrespect had his first ever IRL stream at E3 2019 cut short after he was seemingly banned from the platform for livestreaming in a public bathroom.

Dr Disrespect was enjoying his first ever IRL stream at E3, walking around the venue, chatting to fans, and slating mobile gamers, before his channel got banned on Twitch.

We don’t know how long the ban is for, but it is assumed it happened because he livestreamed in a public bathroom, which breaks Twitch’s terms of service.

Update, June 12, 9:40AM EST: Kotaku reports that Dr Disrespect has also had his E3 badge revoked, an ESA rep confirmed in an email.

Now presumably kicked out of the convention center, the Doc won’t even be able to return to his stream at home until his suspension is up.

What was he doing at E3?

Dr Disrespect announced yesterday that he would be hosting his first ever IRL stream on June 10 at E3 2019 during his Twitch broadcast.

Doc spent the day soaking up the E3 atmosphere with his bodyguard ‘Dan the Body’, while he roamed around the show floor, played games, and took countless selfies with eager fans.

The first few minutes of the stream were from a bathroom, and he didn’t stop there, streaming from bathrooms multiple times during his broadcast.

His stream showed the both the Two-Time and Dan the Body peeing in urinals more than once, capturing many unsuspecting E3-goers doing their business too.

People had a lot to say about the ban

Twitch was swift to swing the ban hammer on his channel, creating an uproar from fans and fellow streamers alike all across social media.

Fellow superstar Twitch streamers Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney both shared hilarious reactions to the Doc’s suspension, although they held opposite stances on the issue. 

Summit1g even reckoned that he’d benefitted from the Doc’s misfortune, enjoying a nice boost in his viewership.

Esports specialist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau said that he supports Twitch’s decision to ban Dr Disrespect from the platform, tweeting, “Twitch made the right call to suspend Doc.”

Will Twitch reinstate his channel?

Usually first offenses start off with a 24-hour ban, with multiple violations resulting in longer times, until the channel is permanently removed entirely.

The type of ban Dr Disrespect received is unknown, but we’ll keep you updated when more details on the issue come to light.

TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
