Twitch star Dr Disrespect unexpectedly broke character during his December 20 broadcast after a fan sent in an inspiring donation message that got him emotional.

Dr Disrespect is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch as his over top explosive persona, and movie-level quality production makes him one of the most ambitious personalities on the platform.

However, the streamer shed his 80's action hero inspired character when a viewer wrote in to him, and explained how meeting the Two-Time champion in person changed his life.

Dr Disrespect breaks character after emotional donation

The popular Twitch personality was in the middle of a broadcast when a fan donated, and explained how meeting the streamer in person at an event changed his life.

"Hey Doc, I met you at EA Play earlier this year, and just wanted to say since then I've lost over 110 pounds and counting. I was close to 430 pounds, and then I felt embarrassed to share the pic we took. The mindset of the Two-Time has helped me be inspired," Dr Disrespect read aloud.

Breaking character, the Twitch star replied to the viewer, and confessed "That makes me feel really really good, man. Not only did you make my day, you made my weekend. I love it, man. I truly mean that."

After reading the personal donation, he then got emotional and explained to his audience, "99% of the time I'm bullsh***ing. I fake my feelings on this channel. But this 1% I am truly genuine."

The Twitch star jokingly told the viewer who wrote in "The other stuff... we will keep this between you and I. I don't want this leaked out, then all the Champion's Club will think they have a phony leader or something."

Doc seemed blown away by the amount of weight the viewer had lost, at one point screaming "SINCE!" given that EA Play took place on June 8, making that an incredible amount to lose in just under six months.

While Dr Disrespect's brand is built on his entertaining persona, the streamer has been known from time to time to get real with viewers, as he's built a loyal fan base with his Champion's Club.

The Two-Time continues to prove to be the most sought after personality on Twitch, winning Streamer of the Year at the Esports Awards 2019, and announcing in December he'd signed a TV-show deal with the Walking Dead creators, living up to his moniker.
