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.

Wendy Williams explains why she “doesn’t feel sorry” for Charli D’Amelio

Popular U.S. TV host Wendy Williams has hit out at TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, after the 16-year-old went on Instagram Live in tears over backlash she had received in her race to 100 million followers.

After an offhand joke about reaching 100 million followers on TikTok, fans deemed Charli “ungrateful” for her success so far and started unfollowing her in droves, losing over 500,000 before her numbers started looking up again and she finally reached the monumental number.

While there was a lot of discussion online about the death threats Charli had received and her treatment by fans and critics alike, the resounding message was that she was being treated unfairly.

Making her opinion on the matter known, however, was American TV host Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show.

Charli has reached 100 million followers on TikTok, but not without some controversy in the run-up to the big moment.

Discussing the hottest topics of the weekend just gone, Wendy was shown several of Charli’s videos, with the situation broken down and explained to her — and she wasn’t impressed.

After finding out what had gone down, and watching the video of a tearful Charli asking for people to stop with the abuse, Wendy made her stance very clear.

“I don’t see any tears,” Williams exclaimed. “Because the drama, these TikTokers, these children these days, they live for the drama.”

The host added she “doesn’t feel sorry” for D’Amelio, especially since she’s probably already gotten the followers back she lost “and then some.”

Topic starts at 25:45.

Wendy did offer a little more advice though when it was suggested that Charli should be a little more grateful.

“No!” she said, before advising Charli to “stay ungrateful and collect those checks!”

So, while Wendy doesn’t seem to be buying the drama, she clearly has some level of respect for Charli’s hustle and ability to “collect those checks” — but suggests the backlash comes hand-in-hand with the success.

The recent controversy surrounding her has clearly hit the younger D’Amelio sister hard, but maybe her being “ungrateful” is, as Williams suggested, just what the internet wanted all along.
